Farmhouse Bathroom Ideas: Rustic to Modern with Ceramic Tile

The nostalgic farmhouse style is full of vintage furnishings, traditional fabrics, and rustic details. This beloved interior design style is coming back in full swing, but with a modern twist. Modern farmhouse interiors honor the traditional style by including elements such as reclaimed wood and vintage furniture, and stays modern with contemporary touches. Handmade tile, neutral colors, and smooth lines are just a few ways you can incorporate a modern farmhouse vibe to your bathroom. Continue reading to see 6 modern farmhouse bathroom ideas! 

1. Add Vintage Details

With a neutral color palette, wooden elements, and classic charm, this bathroom has all the elements of a beautiful farmhouse bathroom. Our friend Patti Wagner decided she wanted to honor her 1927 Tudor home by adding vintage details to the ensuite bathroom. From the clawfoot tub to a Victorian patterned ceramic floor, these details make a big impact to the overall bathroom design. Whether you have a beloved family rug, find a vintage photo to hang, or thrift a piece of furniture, you can give your farmhouse bathroom a vintage makeover in a snap.

2. Use Ceramic Tile for Flooring

Take your farmhouse bathroom to the next level with ceramic tile flooring. We offer a variety of tile shapes and colors, giving you infinite possibilities when it comes to choosing the perfect tile. This farmhouse bathroom floor idea shows just how playful and modern you can be with tile while not going over the top. We love how the unique shape of our Moroccan Fish Scale tile can dress any space up in a modern way, especially with a neutral color like this warmer white. Add an antique rug or table to finish the modern farmhouse look!

3. Mix with Other Design Styles

If you’re torn between two design styles, why not bring them together? Adding elements of differing design styles can be easier than you think. Scandinavian interior design highlights clean lines and neutral colors, which pairs beautifully with the modern farmhouse bathroom look. Wood cabinets, plants, and neutral colored tile make this bathroom have all the charm of the modern farmhouse style and simplicity of the Scandi design!

4. Bring in Pops of Color

The next modern farmhouse bathroom idea is all about color. Although the traditional farmhouse design is all about a neutral color palette, you shouldn’t be afraid to step out of the box and add color to your bathroom design. We adore how this light and bright bathroom uses a geometric emerald green tile to modernize the space while also adding an earthy element to the design. This green ceramic tile compliments the plants, gold details, and wooden mirrors in a harmonious way.

5. Ceramic Twist on Exposed Brick

One element of the farmhouse design that we love is exposed brick, but it’s not common in homes anymore. If you love that look, then you should check out our subway tiles! This farmhouse bathroom idea shows how a little subway tile can go a long way. Subway tiles are a building block for endless patterns and arrangements. You can go traditional with a staggered orientation, or more modern with stacked. This gorgeous shower uses 3”x8”s in a tropical teal to add contrast and an eye-catching detail to the shower niche.

6. Highlight Pre-Existing Details

This farmhouse rustic bathroom idea is all about using modern finishes to highlight pre-existing details of the space. Farmhouse bathrooms give off cozy and relaxed vibes, which is exactly what we’re getting from this ensuite bathroom. The classic rustic reclaimed wood and barn door pair effortlessly with the modern lights, teal ceramic tile, and vanity. Modern details can coexist with rustic elements without overpowering the older charm.
