I recently began thinking of ways to redecorate my bathroom. I really want that rustic farmhouse look throughout my house and the bathroom is no exception. I wondered though, how in the world do you add farmhouse charm to such a small room? My bathrooms aren’t huge by any means so it seems difficult to redecorate them in true farmhouse style. So, I started looking and would you believe that I found 25 gorgeous DIY rustic bathroom decor ideas? You could make any one of these and instantly upgrade your bathroom in true farmhouse style.
If you want to create a new look in your bathroom, but want to avoid a complete interior overhaul, consider tweaking your color scheme and decor. A few simple changes can create an entirely new vibe without going over budget. Design a bathroom with color and styles that truly speak to you. Since it’s the room you spend time getting ready in the morning and preparing for bed, it’s important to create a space the boosts your energy and offers you a quiet respite from your busy schedule.
Basket style window boxes are perfect for adding some extra storage in the bathroom and they have such a nice farmhouse appeal. They’re also super easy to hang on the walls in your bathroom and they give you additional storage without taking up too much space so they are perfect for smaller bathrooms. You can find these baskets at most department stores or repurpose a few outdoor planting baskets. Or you can use DIY window box planters for this one, too.
Even if you don’t have large windows scaling your bathroom wall, you can introduce your fondness for nature in other ways. Stone or wood will emit the natural look, while mint green and white colors will ensure a refreshing feel. Clean lines will help reiterate the modern theme you’re going for—these square sinks work well in a rectangular shaped room and panel windows. 

A whitewashed mirror above your bathroom sink is an excellent way to add some farmhouse style and charm. This is a really simple project and you can even build the mirror yourself from reclaimed wood or old barnwood and then whitewash it. I found this one on Etsy and it’s just $75 and you have several size choices and your choice of hanging brackets. If you prefer to DIY it, it’s a pretty easy project.
This DIY mason jar storage system is all you need to keep your bathroom organized, and it is perfect for adding a little farmhouse style, too. You make lids for your mason jars, complete with knobs so that you can easily lift the lids to get to the contents. The entire thing is nestled in a rustic looking wooden box that you can keep on a shelf or right there on the back of the toilet. I really love rustic mason jar decorating projects!
Regardless of what color scheme you select for the bathroom of yours, you will also want to make sure that your hardware fight. While one does have some freedom in metallic finishes that work very well together (such being a brushed nickel along with a combed silver), keep in your mind that the kind of hardware needs to appear cohesive. A modern chrome faucet is going to look ridiculous in a bathroom that has a claw foot tub as well as bronze box hardware. Since bathrooms are typically as little, it is crucial that every part of the room functions together to write one unified space. Stay away from clutter with decor of course, if possible, choose the saying that less is much more when offering with bathrooms.
"A dark bathroom balanced with white is a great way to go. Hale Navy is one of my all-time favorite colors. It works perfectly with marble or white cabinetry. White is such a crucial color to consider in a bathroom because it always feels fresh and clean. The darker navy tone also works perfectly with the warmer metal trends like brass and copper."
