You really can never have too much storage in the bathroom, which is one reason that I love this tall mirrored storage cabinet. Another reason is that it has such a lovely rustic look and it is super easy to build. You can do this with reclaimed wood if you have any on hand and it will look even more rustic. When you’re finished, you have multiple shelves for storing bathroom essentials and the front of the cabinet gives you a full length mirror!
In just about five minutes or less, you can DIY this great rustic toothbrush holder from an old mason jar. You could do this with a plain jar or paint it white and distress it a bit for a really nice farmhouse look. Just a small piece of wired chicken net keeps your toothbrushes perfectly organized and separated. This one really is quick and easy to make.
An old wooden box is perfect for adding that farmhouse touch to the bathroom and it’s a great way to get some additional storage space for towels. You can use any box of any size, depending on how much space you have available, and they fit perfectly on shelves or on the back of the toilet. Or, you could even mount them on the wall. I found this gorgeous rustic wooden box on Etsy for under $35 or you could repurpose any wooden box that you have on hand.
"I always start with the stone when designing a bathroom, and that begins to inform the color palette. Pale Oak partners well with most marbles, enhancing the vein in the marble, but equally works to soften a dark tile. Be careful, it can go gray or beige depending on the light. Personally I love that about it, but depending on the space, it can be tricky."

A plank of wood and some vintage hooks are all you need to create this lovely rustic DIY towel hanger. You just have to attach some sort of hangers to the board so that you can hang your towels. Old drawer knobs or doorknobs would work wonderfully, too. You can just use whatever you have on hand and the older and rustier the better for getting that rustic farmhouse look.

When you're designing your bathroom, consider how to make the space function for you — whether you prefer to hide clutter in storage baskets or showcase favorite products and neatly folded linens on open shelves. Bright white walls will always look fresh and clean, but don't overlook adding vibrant tile, towels, or carpets for pops of color. They'll warm up the room and turn it into a cozier retreat. Even painting the trim a saturated hue can create a more inviting vibe. Looking for additional bathroom design inspiration?

For bathrooms which are actually painted a color apart from beige or white, allow which wall color become the stage you work from to select the majority of the color pattern for the bathroom. Keep in mind that rugs, towels, bath curtains, photographs and some other accent pieces must often be a basic color, or maybe complement the color of the walls. For instance, in case you’ve a reddish accent wall within the bathroom, you will want the rugs of yours to be beige or black, or maybe a color that can fit the white, like a burnt orange. As a broad rule, there shouldn’t be much different in the bathroom which really matches the color of a daring painted wall.
