This modern farmhouse bathroom — like the other bathrooms in this story — interprets farmhouse style for the way people like to live in their homes today. It includes a key element of farmhouse style: a stand-alone tub, which has old-style valves and faucet handles that evoke an older farmhouse. But the homeowners still get a luxurious, separate walk-in shower.
Whatever their mix of the modern with rustic or farm-style, the following five spaces share a feeling of warmth, and an inviting nature that would have been present in the old farmhouses. Read on to see the distinctive ways designers applied the modern farmhouse concept in the bathroom. Learn from their mixing skills and then tell us: In which bathroom’s (stand-alone) tub would you like to soak?
If your budget is about $100: Get a new shower head or bathtub faucet. Not only will a fresh shower head look better, but it also will improve your bathing experience every single day. If you’re a handy homeowner, you can even install it yourself and save on labor costs. If you have a little extra wiggle room in your budget, splurge on a fancier shower head. You won’t regret it.
A bathroom vanity needn’t be straight out of the shop or supplied by a manufacturer or cabinetmaker. Indeed, thinking outside the square can turn up a one-of-a-kind vanity with character and function to boot. Sideboards, desks and cabinets — whether new or used — can all be repurposed to provide storage and surface space.
