If you are in the process of redecorating your bathroom, consider adding a barn themed bathroom to your home. Barn themed bathrooms can be designed to your liking and will make your bathroom more inviting than traditional, contemporary bathrooms that many people are used to. To create a barn themed bathroom, start with a clean white or cream bathroom surface that is lightly covered by a shower curtain in a color that compliments the walls. Add accessories, such as a mounted soap dish and a wooden or metal washbasin, which coordinate with the color of the walls and shower curtain.
To further add some character to the room, you may wish to install a wall clock or wall decor with a barn animal or cowboy figurine. The wall clock or wall decor may also have some smaller animals on it such as a cow or horse. You may want to add wall decorations such as ceiling panels with barn animal designs, an old-timey wall clock or wall tapestry with cowhide prints, or rustic wall hangings. The tapestry can be framed by hanging up a rustic drum table that you can keep open in the corner and use as a drum table when you are not decorating the room. An area rug made from old sisal rug fabric in the same color as the walls can complete the look of the room.
Adding personal touches such as rustic medicine cabinets, ceramic tile murals, wood beads, and decorative pillows to the walls add charm to your barn themed bathroom. The rustic accessories, paint, stencils, and wood or metal pottery should all coordinate with the theme. Use rustic style paint to create a barn environment in your bathroom by adding a rustic turquoise sink and decorative rustic tiles to your bathtub. In addition to the walls, use a vinyl barn star on the ceiling and large windows to complete the look.
Paint, stencils, and embroidery add character to your walls as well as your accessories. You can find barn wall art online and at many home decorating stores. You can even create your own rustic stencils and stencil designs. Using colors like turquoise, red, yellow, and brown will make your room look like a little country farmhouse.
Adding natural elements such as pine and cork floors will complete the look. If you do not have the room for hardwood floors, try stone tiles that will look just as nice and add some texture to your bathroom. Paint your walls using barn red and blue or natural rust colors. Add some hanging plants, a rustic claw foot tub, and you have the perfect barn themed bathroom.
Adding plants to your bathroom is a great way to not only add some character to the room, but to bring nature inside as well. Common plants used in a barn include sunflowers, honeysuckle, Virginia creeper, and ferns. These are all easy to grow and will add some color to your room as well as the outdoors. You could also consider using baskets on the windowsills or on the countertops. Place them in the color you want to complement your barn decor and use an accent wall to place a few more of the same elements.
Adding mirrors to your bathroom is an easy way to add character as well. Small mirrors placed strategically around your bathroom will not only give you a glimpse of the way things should look in your new barn themed washroom, but it will also add a touch of reality to your bathroom. Your bathroom should feel like it is real with a rustic look.
Barn themed bathrooms are a fun idea for any home. They provide a beautiful backdrop for any bathroom design and they are very affordable. Use your creativity and add a touch of whimsy to your space. Try painting your walls a barn red and adding a rustic wood trim to your shower curtain. Look around for items that will help tie the look together and think outside the box. You’ll end up with a bathroom that looks as if it was built in the late 1800’s.
