Create a rustic bathroom with an Amish towel rack

by Tom Grimes

A recent popular trend within the United States and Europe is to give a rustic, French appearance to a bathroom, using paints and furniture to create a more natural feeling within the space, according to Lonad.com.

The first step is to focus on the flooring, which the news source claims should only be covered with natural materials, such as wood or stone. This kind of flooring can also be a practical surfacing for bathrooms which are splashed water from sinks or baths, because any cracks or other wear and tear only makes the the rustic charm grow.

The colors of French country bathrooms are generally light, so that the room is left feeling open. Whites and cream shades are effective for this purpose, and dark, wooden furniture can add a pleasing contrast to these paints.

According to the news provider, scents such as lavender flowers, can also contribute to this natural setting.

Pieces of Amish handcrafted furniture can make any space feel rustic, particularly Amish towel racks, which can help bring an element of the past into the room. Amish bathroom cabinets can also be well-suited to the purpose, bringing in light and a vintage appeal to the bathroom's focal point.
