How to bring a timeless country style bathroom design into your home

Bathrooms may be largely about practicality, but they can still be beautiful, well-designed spaces. Country style bathrooms offer a classic look, bringing together the most relaxing elements of the simple life but with plenty of luxury touches added in.

The laid-back look of country style bathrooms is designed to seem like it’s been thrown together effortlessly. In reality, however, many different elements need to come together harmoniously in order to achieve the look – here are our tips to help you create your own.

Costa Adeje - Engel & Völkers shows you how to create the perfect country style bathroom for your home:

Choose your bathtub

The centrepiece of many country bathroom designs is a freestanding bath, especially if it’s made from a traditional material like tin or copper. This vintage bathtub style usually gives you much more space to relax in than a regular tub, while also acting as an eye-catching focus for the room. Take a look at some of our bathtub ideas for inspiration and pick out the right one for your home.

Window shopping

Decorating country style bathrooms is all about drawing inspiration from nature and bringing the outside inside. That means the window is a central part of the room’s look. If you’re fortunate enough to have a countryside view, make a statement by placing your bathtub right in front of the window so you can soak up the scenery. Even if you don’t have views of greenery, a wooden window frame with some rustic shutters or crisp white drapes is a classic design that makes the most of the natural light while retaining your privacy.

Get the lighting right

As well as the window, you also need to think about how the lighting in your bathroom can enhance that country house feel. The country style is all about soft, low light – so avoid bright white bulbs and lights without shades, and instead opt for warmer tones and lamps that don’t flood the room with light.

Toss those tiles

Sleek minimalist tiling has its place in the modern bathroom, but when it comes to country bathroom designs, a more rustic style will be appropriate. Instead of tiles, choose plain walls and natural wood or stone flooring to bring the soothing feel of the great outdoors right into your home. Add a large shabby chic rug in a deep pile and muted tone to give you something warm and comfortable to step onto when you get out of the bath.

Finish with florals

The finishing touch for any country style bathroom is a floral element. That could mean decorating the room with real flowers in simple pitchers, adding some printed cushions or papering a feature wall with springtime patterns.
