Is there a more classy and timeless design for a bathroom than the combination of natural stone with other natural materials such as wood, copper or linen? If you want to recreate this warm chic in your home without much effort then you need to consider the rustic style as the focal point of your bathroom.
Not only inspired but created by nature, the natural stone tiles offer a great variety, longevity and serene beauty that can transform your bathroom into the relaxing spa retreat of your dreams. The secret lays in choosing the right stone and tiles – you can opt for irregular shapes, cubes, pebbles. You can combine different stones – marble and limestone or travertine and granite for a more dramatic effect or go only with one type. Adding a copper bathtub or sink will definitely take you back in time. A wooden side table or a rug bring in a truly rustic atmosphere.
Achieving a gorgeous rustic look is not so complicated – all you need is quality stone and some raw or aged wood. These two materials are a timeless combination for any room – kitchen, family room, master bedroom or bathroom.
Here are a few ideas to inspire your renovation.
The rustic charm of the copper bathtub
A free-standing copper bathtub brings all the warmth and charm of the trendy rustic style. The clawfoot bathtub is in the focus once again. Besides, copper ages beautifully and that just adds value to the overall décor in the bathroom.
Natural stone bathtubs and sinks for rustic relax
Natural stone is a timeless material for floor and wall tiles decorating any luxury-looking bathroom. For a more dramatic rustic look we also recommend free-standing bathtubs and sinks made of stone monoliths.
The magic of natural stone
No doubt wood is the first association that comes to your mind when speaking of a rustic style. Natural stone, however, is yet another element that recreates the true rustic charm and chic. A wall, clad in limestone, travertine or marble tiles changes the aesthetics of your bathroom. It also combines well with a more contemporary look of the rest of the rooms in the house. An exposed stone wall can be the accent in the rustic bathroom and it will blend easily with a freestanding copper bathtub or a hand-made wooden side table or stool. Choose the best natural stone tiles for your bathroom and make them a focal point of the beloved rustic style.
Rustic style vanities and accessories
The vanities and accessories are the components that define the bathroom and turn it into a personal retreat. For a rustic style bathroom, you can opt for bespoke accessories crafted from the same natural stone as the floor tiles or for custom-made vanities from reclaimed wood. A copper-framed mirror, a rug or a vintage sink can also be the focal point of your bathroom. Lights are also an add-on feature that compliments the overall décor. Having large windows and a lot of natural light is also something you should look for if the room architecture allows it.
