Modern Farmhouse Bathroom – Before & After
This project was especially exciting as it was our own master bathroom! While the room had great bones, the design was decades out of date (cultured marble and seashell sinks!). The tiled wall enclosing the tub/shower cut the room in half, making it feel small and cramped. The vaulted ceiling added great interest, but the design didn’t utilize its potential as a feature in the room. We had ample counter space on the long vanity, but cabinet storage was lacking due to the outdated vanity cutout. While we appreciated the closet storage space, the old sliding door had been removed and the curtain separating the closet from the bathroom made the transition feel cluttered.
The Modern Farmhouse Bathroom was a complete gut even though we didn’t change the layout of the bathroom. The only items that remained at the end were the window and the toilet!
We wanted the bathroom to feel light and clean, yet interesting. Kelley leans towards designing with neutral colors and a lot of texture. In this room we liked the contrasting textures of the shiplap, subway tile, herringbone marble tile in the shampoo niche, large grain of the cedar accents, and the various textiles we used in decorating. These varying surfaces add interest where the color palette is minimal.
The bathroom needed updated lighting, so we added 4 LED can lights and industrial-inspired vanity fixtures. We had our cabinetry custom-made, and Jeremy made the matching barn door, vanity mirrors, picture frames and cedar caps for the pony wall and ledge. Some of our other favorite details are the rain shower head and the outlets inside the vanity drawers.
