Country style interiors look great wherever you live. Discover how to create a relaxing, rustic vibe in the bathroom.
Your home might be nearer to a city farm than a working farmyard, and the view from your window more rows of houses than rolling acres, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create country-style rooms. It’s a look that works beautifully in the bathroom, and we’ve got all the expert advice you need.
Bring in natural texture
Ditch the modern finishes if you’re after a country look. High-gloss furniture, plastic storage containers and bathroom chairs in manmade materials are all no-nos. Instead, choose chairs, stools and storage furniture in wood, and wicker for smaller storage pieces.

Vintage is a trend we’ve all fallen for – and it’s not just for living spaces or bedrooms. Find out how to introduce it to your bathroom.
Is your bathroom scoring A star for practicality and sleekness, but veering dangerously close to unclassified when it comes to decorative detail? Don’t fret – a transformation is simple. Why not give it a vintage twist, which is a look that can work as well in a bathroom as it does in a living room, bedroom or kitchen? Find out how to make sure your room is functional and beautiful with our top tips.
Choose a classic linen cupboard
A traditional favourite, a freestanding bath linen cupboard will give your room a vintage twist. It’s the perfect place to stack towels, so you won’t have to traipse elsewhere when someone else has left the last towel hanging a little soggy. Go for a tall armoire-style design, or pick a half-height cupboard and you can use the top for display.
Here in the UK we don’t embrace halloween with as much vigour as they do “over the pond” in the USA. If you’ve ever spent a season in America, you’ll know that every home in the street will be decorated from the front-lawn to the bathroom on the evening of October 31st. It’s a trend that brings families together and introduces neighbours to one another and let’s be honest, a rather fun one. Here at Bathrooms.com we believe every home deserves a party and we’ve crawled the witches web to find our top selection of bathroom accessories for a spooky halloween gathering.
