    Everything in this slideshow

    • Sea-Inspired Cottage

      Hints of sea green take this white bathroom beyond standard. Furniture-style feet on the vanity add dimension and a sense of openness.

    • Bright Cottage Bath

      Capitalizing on natural light, this bright white bath is crisp and cool. Pedestal sinks and a vaulted ceiling enhance the bathroom's openness, while the all-white palette creates a cottage feel.

    • Beaded-Board Vanities

      Beaded board is fundamental to cottage style, and it outfits both vanities in this attic bath. The wood countertops and flooring warm up the space, and the sea-green paint adds personality. The large window between the vanities provides plenty of natural light in the small space. 

    • Mixed Materials

      A cabinet on wheels adds storage to this simple bath. Mixing materials and textures -- all in shades of white -- coordinates this bath and keeps it from feeling stark.

    • Bathroom with Rustic Touches

      While the rough-hewn beams and chipped paint on the country vanity lend rustic charm, this bathroom doesn't lack modern amenities. The deep soaking tub offers stunning views of the woods outside the windows, and the vessel sink atop the vanity adds modern sensibility.

    • Colorful Accents

      Subway and mosaic tiles give this new bathroom a vintage look. An old claw-foot tub and pedestal sink were reglazed and fitted with old-style faucets to enhance the cottage appeal, while a table painted apple green lends fun and function.

    • Get Cozy, Cottage Style

      Get tips from the pros on creating a cozy, cottage look in your home.

    • Dresser Redo

      With fresh paint and knobs, this old dresser gets new life as a chic country vanity. Vintage glassware and a French-inspired tea towel work just as well in a country bathroom as they do in the kitchen.

    • Classic Furnishings

      The furnishings in this space seem to belong in a living room rather than a bathroom. The console table-turned-vanity pairs perfectly with the classic sconces on either side of the mirror, and the aged-brick floors and wicker accents help to create a more casual space.

      Grand Soaking Tub

      Large windows, a vaulted ceiling, and an adjacent dressing room create a grand feeling in this bathroom.  A traditional claw-foot tub sits in the center of the room, giving the bather a direct view outdoors.

    • 11 of 23

      Mirrored Design

      The mirror above the vanity plays off the round porthole-style window. Wainscoting wraps the room and is topped by a picture ledge, perfect for storing bathroom necessities and decorative accessories.

      Mix in Modern

      Whitewashed horizontal paneling is the perfect counterpoint to the slate-color tile floor and modern steel-and-stone vanity. Simple outdoor-style lights over the vanity and provide plenty of illumination for grooming.

      Major Storage

      This bathroom has plenty of storage behind the beaded-board cabinets, plus two tall glass-front cabinets add multiple shelves for accessories and decorative accents. A curvy shelf made of marble, which matches the countertop, extends above the sinks for more bonus shelving space.

      Coastal Colors

      Inspired by sand and sea, this bathroom is full of cottage-style, without being too style-specific. Clean lines are perfect with the beautiful trim-work on the mirrors and beautiful paint choices.

    • 15 of 23

      Timeless White Bath

      Timeless white tile complements the vintage style of the handsome soaking bathtub in this large bathroom. The tiled wainscoting brings down the height of the ceiling and complements the scale of the bathtub, giving the room a finished look even though it's lightly furnished. 

    • 16 of 23

      Log-Cabin Chic

      This cabin bathroom mixes stone with natural and painted wood to create a cozy escape. A big window over the soaking tub brightens what could otherwise be a very dark room. 

    • 17 of 23

      Warm Up with Wood

      Siding on walls gives this compact bath vintage character. Wall-mount faucets and the vanity's open and closed storage make efficient use of the tight space.

      Quintessential Cottage

      Beaded-board wainscoting, light blue walls, and white wooden shutters create the quintessential cottage bathroom.  To take advantage of this bathroom's generous floor space and height, a standard bookshelf is a perfect choice to store bathroom necessities, pretty decor, and quirky accents.

    • 19 of 23

      Double Pedestal Sinks

      There's no rule that says a cabinet-style vanity has to fill a long wall in a bathroom. With two pedestal sinks and a sleek chrome shelving unit that uses vertical space, this bathroom melds cottage charm with modern function. 

    • 20 of 23

      Cottage Bathroom Accents

      With plaid fabric shirred on its doors, an armoire exudes cottage charm. The plaid repeats as trim on the chair cushion and valance for continuity and softness. 

    • 21 of 23

      Stand-Alone Storage

      A console-style sink gives this bath a furnished look, and a distressed stand-alone cabinet provides storage and character. 

    • 22 of 23

      Soak in the Sun

      Nestled under a window dressed with gauzy white curtains, this soaking tub provides a sunny spot to relax and unwind. Working shutters add charm and another layer of privacy.
