Everything In This Slideshow

  • Eclectic Reflection

    Deep window trim, tall baseboards, and weathered wood flooring pay witness to this home's century-past beginnings. Sunny yellow walls highlight a vintage-look pedestal tub and eclectic artwork. A country stool and an antique area rug enhance the bathroom's assembled-over-time appeal.

  • Clear Sailing

    Nautical influences weave seagoing spirit throughout this buoyant bathroom. Porthole-shape mirrors and caged ship lights dress the wood-clad walls above a farmhouse-style trough sink. Tiled floors present a classic pattern in a modern manner.

  • First-Rate Fusion

    Nothing says country like a sliding barn door on a wall-mount track. This door, with its paneled details and white painted finish, takes on cottage character to match the bathroom's timeworn furnishings and fixtures.

  • Rural Allusions

    A little bit country, a little bit cottage, this bathroom pays tribute to long-ago lavatories in modern ways. References to farm life include a rural rendering, a canning-jar collection, and a primitive coverlet folded on an antique chair. The tiled floors and black painted wainscoting give a nod to cottage style in high-impact fashion.

  • Nostalgic Nuances

    Both cottage and country styles boast been-around-awhile features that make rooms appear as if they've been furnished over time. Here, beaded-board wainscoting sets a cottage backdrop that highlights antique furnishings -- including a vintage dresser, a chipped-up basket, and an industrial cart -- that find new life as storage pieces.

  • Design a Beachy Cottage Bath

    See the many ways to create a beach-house feel in your bathroom.

  • Cross-Continental Style

    Both European and American country influences enhance cottage bathroom designs. This bathroom leans toward beachy thanks to the sea-green shiplap walls and marble floor, but it also accommodates French antiques. A flea market chair and elegant side table bring unexpected charm to the utilitarian space.

  • Primitive Patinas

    White beaded-board walls, a cottage design essential, evoke country-cottage charm when combined with weathered finishes. Move in vintage tables, capacious cabinets, and floating shelves to accommodate linens, toiletries, and bathroom necessities.

  • Subject Matters

    A vintage milking stool and seashell-stuffed aquarium highlight this bathroom's mix of country and cottage styles. To get a similar look, start with a white backdrop that will show off chipped patinas and beachcombed treasures. Install vintage-looking light fixtures, faucets, mirrors, and hardware to instill an aged appearance.

    Architectural Interest

    Gray walls, earthen tiles, and a pedestal tub convert a tired bathroom into a modern spa. Coats of gray paint add visual weight to board-clad walls and a trio of casement windows. The deep-color perimeter handily highlights the bathtub's profile, crisp-white bath linens, and chrome towel hooks.

    Twist on Tradition

    Simple Shaker-style cabinets work well in both cottage and country spaces, but they become beach-house fabulous when paired with high-end surfaces such as marble countertops and showy stone-tile floors. Subway tile around the tub, board-clad ceilings, and old-timey fixtures say cottage; the white finishes set a light and airy mood.
