Give Your Bathroom a Rustic Theme

When it comes to home decor, bathrooms often go overlooked. We focus on the areas of our home that we consider to be “public,” such as our kitchen, living room, and dining room. We also decorate our bedroom in order to make it comfortable due to the time that we spend there. But while the time spent in washrooms may be less compared to time spent in gathering spaces, the truth is that both you and your guests will see your bathroom, and obviously consider it to be an important part of your home. Thus, you should decorate it accordingly.

The good news for homeowners seeking to upgrade their home decor is that bathrooms are some of the smaller spaces in your home. And a smaller space means that the decor you choose will a greater impact without a corresponding increased expense. The same vase that occupies a small space on your mantle, for example, can have a large impact in your washroom.

But the flip side of this small space argument is that you have to be more focused with your decorative choices. Even if you prefer a shabby chic bathroom design, adding too many mismatched pieces can leave your bathroom feeling cluttered. The key is to choose coordinated–though not necessarily “matchy”–decor pieces which fit and flatter your space. The good news is that if you’re looking for bathroom decor ideas, Antique Farmhouse has you covered.
