The Rustic Bathroom – A Style Guide

Rustic style represents a simple life close to nature and brings to mind dark wood, cast iron, antique terra cotta pottery and walls decorated with taxidermy deer heads. In theU.S., rustic furniture is often referred to as Adirondack furniture, a term coined after the upstate New York wilderness preserve. Rustic furnishing is mainly carved and fretted and made to look like tree branches.

Every design element in a rustic décor should be inspired by nature. With rough textures and a rugged finish, a rustic bathroom should give you the feel of being in a cabin in the woods. Here are some key elements to consider when designing a rustic bathroom:

  1. Floor: Choose matte finish hardwood laminate flooring.  Pick the moisture resistant ones designed especially for the bathroom. If you are still nervous about moisture damage, go for wood finished ceramic tiles.
  2. Wall: You can add a board and batten feature with the same material you used for your floor.  Make it authentic with this North American Moose Head Bust wall head.
