Modern farmhouse bathrooms are more than just shiplap and subway tile. Also known as country chic or farmhouse chic, modern farmhouse style bathrooms mix modern and traditional design elements, including rustic accents like weathered wood, galvanized metal, and antique-inspired fixtures. According to Homes & Gardens, “The modern farmhouse style is the perfect blend of the traditional country look with the more minimal contemporary design.” Clean lines, bright white trim, sleek black or metallic accents, and glossy finishes add sophistication to this aesthetic. Modern and contemporary design elements act as a counterbalance to the more traditional or rustic features - like vintage style faucets and clawfoot tubs – that are utilized in farmhouse chic bathroom decor. This contrast between traditional and modern minimalism creates a bathroom space that is truly sophisticated yet inviting.
Because this aesthetic is all about comfort, a freestanding tub – perfect for a deep soak after a long day baling hay ormodifying spreadsheets - is a must-have luxury feature for most farmhouse chic bathrooms. Because farmhouse chic is a transitional style, remodelers will need to choose between a traditional style tub or a modern freestanding tub.
Popular options include rustic or traditional style tubs like cast iron clawfoot tubs, stock tank tubs in copper or galvanized metal, or French bateau tubs with riveted skirts.
Modern freestanding tubs made from easy-to-maintain materials like high gloss acrylic, durable cast iron, and solid surface stone are another design option for farmhouse chic bathrooms. Showcasing the smooth, minimalist lines that define modern design, modern freestanding tubs are essentially functional works of art. A great freestanding tub can make an excellent focal point for your modern farmhouse or farmhouse chic style bathroom – while also increasing the value of your bathroom remodel.
The tub style you select will ultimately depend on your personal preferences and what type of tub you need to complement your overall bathroom design. Some of our favorite freestanding tub models that are perfect for farmhouse chic bathroom designs include:
