Rustic bathroom vanities come in many different styles to compliment and complete the look of many bathroom designs. Rustic designs can fit into many overall themes and designs from a log cabin design, a rustic country home, an Adirondack theme, a North woods cabin, or lake cottage home; all are compatible with a rustic bathroom design.
Furniture Made of Wood
Furniture made of wood with many exposed knots, and rough, unfinished surfaces are common design elements. Wood paneling and logs are popular to mimic the look of a log cabin or cottage. Combining older furniture with new pieces is common in many of these designs. The natural look of stone elements can be incorporated into a mantle. Reclaimed and re-purposed logs, along with natural elements and iron railings are common in rustic designs.
Rustic design elements can include salvaged wood and handmade furniture with an unpolished look. A rough, handmade overall look of furniture adorned by fabrics and textiles that have a less refined look of being handmade and not fine or delicate. Natural colors compliment the design palette of muted earth tones.
Element to a Rustic Bathroom
Rustic bathroom designs use many natural elements including rustic bathroom vanities. Log paneled walls to mimic a log cabin would add interest. Plain wooden shelves of knotty pine or roughhewn wooden planks add places for storage as well places to hold more decorative objects while naturally including their own natural design elements. Hand-tied knotted rag rugs can add a whimsical, soft element to a rustic bathroom.
Although natural decorative objects such as dried flowers and pine cones add whimsy on shelves in bowls, art can also be hung on walls. Pictures and drawings of wildlife that may surround the natural environment of the home may also be included. A lovely picture or drawing of a native bird or bear would thrill visitors and remind them of the setting just outside the home.
Many modern vanity models made by modern manufacturers come in sizes to fit any bathroom with many customizable options. Wood and stain color can vary to fit the rest of the bathroom’s decor. Also vanities can be designed to look like other furniture throughout the house.
