Modern Farmhouse Bathroom Ideas on a Budget

The modern farmhouse style has become increasingly popular in home decor, and bathrooms are no exception. With their rustic charm and sleek modern touches, modern farmhouse-themed bathrooms are a great way to continue the look of a cozy and inviting space into one of the most-used spaces of your home. If you’re itching to create this look for your bathroom but don’t want to break the bank doing so, we’ve got some good news for you. You can absolutely achieve this look on a budget! Here are some affordable modern farmhouse bathroom ideas to try:

Rustic Accents

The charm of farmhouse decor is how earthy and rustic it is, creating a beautiful balance of modern and traditional. So, a good starting point is to incorporate rustic accents into your bathroom decor, such as reclaimed wood shelving, vintage-style mirrors, and mason jar storage containers. These items can be found at thrift stores and flea markets, from online resellers, or even made yourself.

Neutral Color Palette 

In order to put a modern spin on the farmhouse look, lighter and more neutral colors are used to avoid looking too busy or dated. Therefore, it’s best to stick to a neutral color palette for your bathroom walls, tiles, and fixtures. White, beige, and gray tones are perfect for creating a calming and relaxing atmosphere in your modern farmhouse bathroom.

DIY Shiplap

Shiplap features overlapping joints that create a textured and eye-catching aesthetic. While shiplap walls have become a staple in modern farmhouse design, they seem to be used quite frequently in many new construction and remodeled homes. For a more unique look, consider installing the shiplap vertically instead of horizontally. Not only will this differ from the standard shiplap style, but it can also make your bathroom feel larger. 

Vintage Accessories

It sounds counterintuitive to add something vintage to your bathroom to make it modern, but it all ties in with the farmhouse aesthetic. Plus, it ensures that your bathroom doesn’t look too trendy or wind up outdated in only a few years. Some examples of incorporating vintage accessories into your bathroom decor include antique doorknobs, metal baskets, and old-fashioned soap dispensers. 

Farmhouse-Style Lighting

One of the most influential parts of the bathroom decor is also one of the easiest things to upgrade. Swap out your current bathroom lighting fixtures for rustic farmhouse-style lighting. This could include a barn-style light fixture, a metal pendant light, or even a mason jar light fixture.


Farms are all about cultivating and nourishing, so why not tie that into your new farmhouse-themed bathroom? Embrace your inner farmer by adding some plants and greenery to your bathroom. Succulents, ferns, and eucalyptus are all great options for adding a touch of nature to your space.

With a little creativity and resourcefulness, you can create a cozy and inviting space in your home that reflects the charm and style of the modern farmhouse trend.
