Before + After: Modern Farmhouse Bathroom

It feels like ages ago that we did a complete renovation of the one and only bathroom in our little farmhouse. I very much aspired for it to have a modern farmhouse style, and I think it may have turned out to be the best example of this style in the house, to date.

(I realized in looking through, that I had posted an inspiration post, about white tile bathrooms // here, but I never posted anything about the bathroom! Hence this delayed post)

This is the BEFORE:

We fought this bathroom pretty hard in our renovations. It’s very tiny, has sloped ceilings and apparently wasn’t soundly supported because during renovations the entire room fell through the ceiling to the living room below. (Oops) I remember I was in charge of demo’ing the room and found smashing old tiles to be incredibly cathartic. Everything about this bathroom changed, and had to!


There’s something about the balance of materials in this space that for me, defines modern farmhouse style. The rustic custom vanity, brushed nickel fixtures, loads of glass, loads of white tile and dark grout…it all seems to play off each other in a happy way.
