Tips to furnish a Farmhouse bathroom in a budget

If like me, you are looking for a style to renovate your bathroom on a budget, then you will be considering the farmhouse bathroom style. 

To create a farmhouse bathroom style, we must use a mix of colors and rustic embellishments. Some of these can be obtained with the right lighting fixtures, open shelving, and reclaimed wood furniture. Other elements require DIY efforts, such as installing a sliding barn door or reusing vintage sinks from Craigslist or thrift stores. The good news? With these simple steps, anyone can have their own bathroom on the farmhouse for little money!

Ideas for bathroom in the farmhouse

Farmhouse bathroom ideas and designs can be found everywhere, but many are too expensive or require too many DIY skills. In this article, I will show you some ideas for decorating your bathroom in Agriturismo style without breaking your budget. We know that the bathrooms of the farmhouse are synonymous with simplicity, low maintenance, and natural beauty. Therefore, instead of opting for expensive materials such as marble or fine wood floors, we suggest using tiled floors that do not require any additional work after installation.

Keep things simple.

Keeping things simple is the key to decorating a farmhouse bathroom and spending little. Don’t overdo it by putting too much stuff in the room, especially if you’re just starting out. If you have a mirror and two hooks above the sink, that’s fine (although maybe you take another hook so you can hang two towels). Don’t go crazy with too many colors or patterns; stick with one or two of each. And if you opt for wallpaper, a few are enough: a few sheets will do the trick!

Hang a mirror on the farmhouse

A mirror is a great way to make your bathroom more spacious and light. If you already have an old wooden one, you can bring it back to life and use that. Or you can get one at the second-hand market or on Etsy, where you can find valid ones for less than $100. 

In the bathroom in this photo, the mirror supports the entire style that is limited to being minimal and homogeneous in colors. You can make a design like this with very little money and just a pinch of DIY.

Mounting a large mirror above the vanity will also give a sense of greater amplitude to your bathroom, which is very useful if you have a small bathroom.

Go for a tub with feet.

A tub with feet is the way to go for a bathroom in pure farmhouse style. These tanks are elegant but practical. They can be easily cleaned, and you can also do the installation yourself without having to wall it. They are iconic bathtubs for country bathrooms, and if you can do without the shower for space and practicality, then they are the right choice for you.

Foot tubs are often used in luxury designs, so you may struggle to find a good product under $1000, but you can always opt for a regular tub and attach the feet yourself like the ones you can find on Amazon .

In the photo above, you can see how the feet can be used on normal tanks and how the design is completed by reusing old furniture.

Use reclaimed wood.

Reclaimed wood is a great way to add character to your farmhouse bathroom and make it more rustic and authentic. It can be used in flooring, walls, furniture, and even in vanity.

The bathroom above shows how the reclaimed wood makes this farmhouse-style bathroom authentic and gorgeous. If you are in a country house, you can reuse the doors and the various furniture you have, or take a tour of the various flea markets or on Etsy, where you can find excellent offers and create a perfect farmhouse bathroom with little expense.

And while you’re at it, turn everything white.

With white, you are never wrong. This is a great choice in any room, but it makes particular sense in your farm bathroom because it creates a clean, vintage look on the old furniture, which is perfect for the farmhouse aesthetics.

White also works well with other colors: in the photo above, it is combined with gold and black details, which are very elegant and minimal.

Do not be afraid to use barn elements.

A wooden staircase, a sliding door, or an old sink. In the farm’s bathroom, you can dare with typical elements of the barn. In the photo above, you can see a concrete example where an old staircase is used as a storage space and an old structure of basins for washing converted into vases for flowers. The result is a beautiful bathroom at a very low cost.

Use the recovered items to create a farmhouse sink.

Recovered items are your best friends when it comes to creating a farm bathroom. Here, for example, you can get a beautiful sink from an old bedside table and maybe use an old kitchen sink or barn and store it on top. With a little DIY and a few dollars, you will be able to get an element of the bathroom that otherwise would have cost you several thousand dollars.

With a little DIY and these ideas, you can create your own gorgeous rustic-chic bathroom.

In conclusion, I hope you are inspired to start with your bath on the farm! Remember that you can create a beautiful farm bath using your imagination, what you have on hand, and a little creativity. 

Use your budget wisely! You will find that you can achieve a great result by spending little.

Remember: don’t be afraid to experiment with colors and textures when decorating your space. You never know what might look good until you try it yourself!
