Country Bathrooms Are Small
But Oh, So Sweet

  • penned by RF

Some of these little Country bathrooms will have beadboard around the bottom half of the room.

While the top half will sport a lovely, small, floral wall paper and...

Surprise, the same paper will be on the ceiling!

Just that little difference makes this bath stunning and oh! So cozy!

Soft dreamy colors and accessories, scented candles and fluffy towels with your initials make it your own.

"Is Paper A Good Choice?"

If you love wall paper don't be afraid to try it. It's not that hard to do and you would be surprised how quickly you can manage it.

This is another of those do it yourself things that is not only fun but gives you such a sense of accomplishment in seeing the end result.

Rooms done in wallpaper can last forever but of course, if you get tired of the same paper change it.

My dining room has had the same paper for 20 or so years and I'm still amazed at how lovely it is to this day. I don't think I'll be changing it soon.

"Short On Space?"

There are a few ways to get a little more storage out of a small space. Try using an over the toilet space saver with shelves and cabinets.

You can store lots of personal items and at the same time it looks great.

Or perhaps instead of using a pedestal sink use a cabinet type so you have more storage underneath.

If that's not an option then try a sink skirt to hide items you don't want seen.

If you have an open corner...use some corner shelving to save space. Or how about above the door, a small shelf can hold items you don't use everyday.

Perhaps shelve some country style collectibles or bath accoutrements such as bath salts, oils, loofa sponges...etc.

Big baskets can act as another form of storage. How nice they look, with some beautiful towels and washcloths rolled and arranged inside.

Add some fancy soaps, body scrubs, body washes and lotions and you have something eye-catching but useful.

Set it on floor, out of the way...This is so very country. Once again, use your imagination.

Speaking Of The Floor...

A great many things can be added as you go along. A soft country curtain and rug give a very inviting feel to your country bathroom.

Tile on the floor is probably the best choice here. There is even tile that looks like wood planking, a great look and so practical.

Stall showers are a sensible choice for a small bath, if bathtubs are not your style.

They give your bathroom a bit more sense of space and come in so many different shapes and sizes.

One will surely fit into your small country bathroom scheme.
