I mentioned our Farmhouse Master Bathroom and closet in the Farmhouse Master Bedroom Tour post.
And here we are! It is a small space, but that’s the way we like it.
I love having less to clean.
And I’m truly not a big fan of the double sink.
No offense to you if you like that sort of thing, but, to be perfectly honest, I don’t want another person in the bathroom with me when I’m in there.
I mean, ew.
The bathroom is a private room, in my opinion.
But maybe that’s just me. You do you.
A Little Background Information
When we bought this house, the farmhouse master bathroom and closet were tied together in one room – the laundry room.
When we had the master bedroom remodeled, the door to the laundry room was moved over a bit, and since there were already water lines there(for the washing machine), we thought it made sense to put a bathroom in that spot.
We didn’t need a tub because we already have a lovely tub in a different bathroom. Instead, we decided on a small, corner shower unit.
We also searched high and low for the perfect antique to use as our sink vanity.
The pitcher and bowl decoration gives a nod to days of old.
As do the fingertip towels.
The toilet is, well, just a simple toilet.
But I wanted something cute to hold the toilet cleaning brush. Enter the cat.
I believe I bought the cat toilet brush holder at Bed Bath and Beyond a few years ago.
We found this old, banged-up shelf unit at a second-hand shop. It used to have doors, but we removed them in favor of open shelving.
I sewed and pinned the fabric covers on the bins.
There was already a window and a radiator already in place. The contractor crafted the radiator cover here as he did for all of the radiators in the house.
The tile on the walls, I feel, gives a nod to yesteryear, as does the tile on the floor, which is a black and white hexagonal pattern with charcoal gray grout.
And since this room connects to our clothes closet, we opted for a pocket door. There really isn’t space for any other type of door.
Our clothes closet is very narrow, but just big enough for our clothes. It amazes me that in a former house, we each once had our own walk-in closets!
All that meant was there was more room to keep things we never wore!
So the size of this closet is perfect, because neither one of us can keep more than is necessary.
Bear in mind that, since the house is so old, there probably weren’t any built-in closets in the beginning.
The only closets in the house now have been added much later.
Upstairs there is one closet in the room we used to sleep in.
Downstairs there is one in the mudroom for coats.
And here in the master bedroom is our little closet.
It works for us.
As “Minimalists-in-Training,” we have found that we don’t need more than half of what we used to have. Not. At. All.
Farmhouse Master Bathroom
A few more details – Our paint colors in this room are (all Benjamin Moore):
Walls – Gray Cloud (2126-60)
Ceiling – Constellation (AF-540)
Trim – White Dove (OC-17)
The tile on the walls is a white subway tile (can’t remember the brand) with a black bullnose. The grout is a charcoal gray.
Our curtains are the same white sailcloth curtains that we have on many windows throughout the house. The lower curtain was a relic from my mother’s house, which she made herself.
I hope you found some inspiration for your own Farmhouse master bathroom!
