To make any bathroom look chic, first you have to clear the clutter. Everything should have a place behind a cabinet door or under the sink. Any extra clutter that is left out should be stored in a decorative container so it doesn't disrupt the overall look of the room. Create your own country chic organizer using mason jars, some stained wood and this DIY tutorial.
When you're walking into a country chic bathroom, it should feel light, fresh and clean. Using a lot of white will give your room an airy feeling while making it feel larger. You can paint any furniture or your vanity, brighten up the trim, or even add beadboard wainscoting to your walls.
Use Softer Colors
Add some interest to your country chic bathroom by accenting it with a calming color, preferably one you'd find in nature. Use a soft blue, sage green, oatmeal or even pale yellow to add a delicate contrast. For a big project, paint your walls or an accent wall in your chosen soft color. You can also decorate with a soft color using plush towels and other linens, or add some interest with larger vases, candlesticks and shelves.
Repurpose Your Own Pieces
Part of the charm of country style is using everything in unexpected ways. No matter your skill or DIY abilities, there is sure to be a project out there for you. You could repurpose an old wooden ladder into a cute towel rack that leans against the wall. More experienced crafters can reconstruct an old sewing table into a custom vanity. It's these personal pieces that really make a country bathroom feel cozy.
Hit The Road
Wander your local thrift stores, rummage sales and salvage yards to find the perfect pieces to decorate your bathroom. You may stumble upon vintage plumbing fixtures or faucets. Maybe you'll fall in love with an old trough that would make the perfect sink basin.
Update Your Lighting
To really go all the way with your new country chic bathroom, you could repurpose old farm lights into shades for your vanity. Check out local flea markets or stop by farms along your way to see if they have any older pieces they wouldn't mind selling or even giving away. If you have a nice view, don't hide it behind dark curtains, but instead let the natural light fill your space. Add a large mirror in your bathroom to reflect the light and make it feel even brighter.
With these ideas for a country chic bathroom, you'll be on your way to the simple life in no time.
