Only if you can afford fine materials!

We are not claiming that beautiful bathroom design can only be achieved if you can invest a lot of money. But we are already advocating the thesis that you have to make the most of the available budget. If you can’t afford the best materials for your rustic bathroom design, then it’s better to postpone the project for better times. Because you risk that the cheap material will rot and break quickly, and that you will have more problems than advantages.

Incidentally, given the eclectic tendencies, it would also be appropriate to integrate just one or two pieces of furniture in a traditional rustic way. What about a washstand made of solid wood??

Qualitative imitations are also a good solution. A common washbasin can only be clad with wood to achieve the appropriate look.

That would definitely be an eye-catcher in every bathroom

Antique furniture that serves as the base for the wooden vanity unit

You could combine a love of antiquity with a liking for the rustic. A wooden sink would also be an excellent example. Take an old piece of furniture as a basis, have it restored and also integrate a standard modern washbasin.

Antique decoration

If you can currently afford a washbasin from the rustic bathroom furnishings, then you can develop the charm of this style through decoration. Any rough-looking, antique objects that are suitable for the ambience (do not spoil or rot in this) are to be distributed.

A wooden vanity is quite dark. As such, the rustic style also has quite a somber appearance. In order to brighten and spice things up, you would have to think of suitable lighting. Such furniture is best inscribed in rooms with natural light access.
