Whether you’re decorating a house in the country or just want to create the lived-in, homey feel of rustic décor, achieving that look is all about texture. Reclaimed wood, galvanized metal, rough stone and cast iron are all part of rustic bathroom decor ideas. These natural, less polished materials provide a sense of one-of-a-kind craftsmanship and will give any room an immediate sense of character. This is especially true in a bathroom, where you can make a big impact with just a few subtle elements.
50+ Ways to Add Rustic Flair to Your Bathroom
Because it can be unusual to see anything but gleaming tile in a bathroom, adding a single shelf made of barn wood or an antique orchard ladder used as a towel rack makes it an immediate focal piece. Don’t be afraid to bring in rustic flair with bigger design elements as well; decorative beams, a reclaimed wood accent wall, or heavy wrought-iron hardware can turn your bath into a mountain getaway or historic cottage. Just be sure to consider your bathroom’s lighting. Natural materials, with their rougher textures, don’t bounce as much light as polished surfaces like tile, and this can make a room seem dark, especially if it’s not very big. Keep things light and bright by using a light whitewash on reclaimed wood and scaling up your vanity mirror to reflect more light. Check out these gorgeous rustic bathroom design ideas to get started!

50+ Unique Rustic Bathroom Decor Ideas
When considering all of the unique bathroom design ideas that have been shown in these beautiful rustic bathrooms, it is important to understand how you want your final design to look and feel. You will need to understand the intended function of the bathroom as well as the general purpose of your design. Whether you prefer more feminine touches for your bathroom or enjoy a more masculine or modern industrial design, there are different rustic elements to consider. If you want a room that appears very modern, you can still create a rustic atmosphere through the use of natural and antique materials that have been repurposed.
Your budget and bathroom size will also affect the type of design that you will be creating. You won’t be able to use a lot of stonework in your bathroom if you have a shoestring budget to work with, so plan wisely and use accessories and accent pieces instead of tackling the entire room. For small bathrooms, a little rustic charm will go a long way.
