The country style bathroom is perhaps the easiest type of design to create and like the traditional bathroom only really works well within the right house. The classic country look is best associated with floral wallpaper high beams basin frills and a bath canopy. Following the traditional design cast iron baths and deep ridged sanitary ware are what gives the country bathroom its nostalgic look.
Toilets with high level cisterns and pull chains are very rare these days but a must have for the country bathroom as are traditional taps for the bath and basin. Just about any kind of free-standing bath will suit the country bathroom. If wishing to have a shower a tiled walk-in shower is the advisable option with a curtain to conceal the area. For the final touch add wicker baskets filled with pot pouri wire basket shelves and stylish wall lamps.
"Shabby chic" a relatively new phrase used to describe room designs is an obscure blend of neglect and style. It is one of the most difficult bathroom designs to create and it takes a bold decision to go for this bathroom style. It almost certainly achieves its full potential in a continental house either a French chateau or old Spanish villa.

Pay Attention to Size. If you plan to use the same insert location where it already is you will need to shop for bathroom basins that fit that same size.

Either tiles or wooden floors can be used. Tiles should be a rustic colour and can be used to create elaborate mosaics. Wooden floors should be varnished to match the furniture. Decorating may see a stenciled motif used as a border and the technique of rubbing paint on the walls with a sponge gives the room that worn natural look.
As well as the furniture wall-hung sanitary ware is a great space-saving solution while giving the bathroom a contemporary feel. Also concealed cistern units are a more eye-pleasing look than the standard close-coupled toilet.
