Read on to see the distinctive ways designers applied the modern farmhouse concept in the bathroom.

Go big and beige. Large fawn-colored tiles create a classic look that’s neutral and restful. Their generous size and light tone are also space-enhancing. And large tiles mean fewer grout lines to maintain and keep mold-free
Keep it simple. Although the wallpaper isn’t minimal, the pretty window film (used only on the bottom panes to maximize light) definitely leans toward the barely there category.

If your budget is about $400: Get a new shower head, and then upgrade your bath linens and swap out the vanity light. Fresh linens (and a shower curtain, if using) and lighting will make the space feel cleaner, brighter and more stylish. To avoid installation issues, select vanity lights that mount to the wall in the same way as the old lights.
