Country Bathroom

Simply by adding country bathroom accessories and using some easy bathroom decorating ideas, you can transform your bathroom into a warm, relaxing retreat.

This transformation can be easily accomplished without incurring a major expense, providing that you aren't in need of a major remodel. For example, a new tub/shower, toilet, or flooring.

Check, floral or plaid curtains are preferred over roller blinds, and shutters, though rare in England, offer a great form of privacy as well as adding to the country effect. Wood plays a big part in this look, and almost all furniture works well in this setting, especially beech, maple, ash and oak vanity units and cabinets.

Either tiles or wooden floors can be used. Tiles should be a rustic colour, and can be used to create elaborate mosaics. Wooden floors should be varnished to match the furniture. Decorating may see a stenciled motif used as a border, and the technique of rubbing paint on the walls with a sponge gives the room that worn natural look.

Toilets with high level cisterns and pull chains are very rare these days, but a must have for the country bathroom, as are traditional taps for the bath and basin. Just about any kind of free-standing bath will suit the country bathroom. If wishing to have a shower a tiled walk-in shower is the advisable option with a curtain to conceal the area.

Bathroom Decorative Accessories - Baskets are important for storage and decorative purposes - the mere appearance of baskets immediately "says" country. If you have the space, you can neatly roll towels and place them in a basket. This looks great, and of course, very functional, too. Choose two or perhaps 3 colors for your towels and display them on your country towel bars or place them in baskets. There is a really nice item that I like for keeping towels in the bathroom. It is a rack that you hang on the wall with space to roll towels and place them on it.
