With the resurgence of farmhouse design in recent years, everything from the kitchen to the bathroom are being styled with a timeless and rustic look. If you’re looking for home improvement ideas, let’s check out some of the best farmhouse-inspired tile for your bathroom’s floors, shower, backsplash and more. It’s easier than you think to create a farmhouse-style bathroom that’s both beautiful and practical.

What is Farmhouse Design?

Modern farmhouse style is inspired by the practical and rustic charm of historic farmhouses. This design style is characterized by features like:

  • Natural materials and textures, including wood, stone, and steel
  • Neutral colors: warm or cool neutrals, as well as earth tones
  • Simple designs, without much ornate detail
  • Rustic charm and a cozy ambiance
  • Low-shine, matte finishes
  • Blending vintage or antique items with modern touches

These elements come together to create an inviting yet stylish space that’s the perfect balance of form and function. However, just because farmhouse style uses predominantly neutral colors and simple designs doesn’t mean it has to be flat and lifeless. Bringing life to a neutral farmhouse bathroom is as easy as adding contrast and texture. One way to do this is with the tile you choose for your bathroom design.

Farmhouse Bathroom Floor Tile

Porcelain patterned tile is perfect for a farmhouse-style bathroom, and the floor is a great place to incorporate a style element. Choose tile that complements the principles of farmhouse design—look for neutral colors and simple or organic patterns.

For example, our Reverie series features 12 different patterns and four solid colors, any of which can be used beautifully in a farmhouse bathroom. Reverie’s vintage-inspired pattern options are influenced by floral and organic shapes, with a modern farmhouse color palette including white, tan, grey, black and, soft blue.

Another gorgeous floor tile choice for your farmhouse bathroom is Cementine Posa. With a worn, vintage look and just the right amount of color, this porcelain tile is available in five patterns that would be perfect for your space.

Farmhouse Bathroom Shower Tile

Patterned tile is also an excellent choice for the shower or as a backsplash/accent wall in your bathroom. The pattern in the tile should complement the colors elsewhere in the room while adding some contrast and visual appeal.

The shower in a farmhouse-inspired bathroom design is also a great place to add a natural yet luxurious element in the form of stone tile. A stunning yet subtle marble tile like CS-Bianco Venatino adds that perfect rustic charm in keeping with farmhouse style. Available in 12 mesh mount designs, there are several choices that would fit beautifully in this aesthetic, such as the Chevron, Lotus, and Picket. This timeless white and grey marble looks chic and upscale without reading too modern in a farmhouse bathroom.

Farmhouse Bathroom Tile for Walls & Backsplashes

If you’re looking for the perfect place to add interest to an otherwise neutral and simple farmhouse bathroom, the backsplash can be a great focal point. Cementine Black and White is a timeless porcelain tile that captures the simple charm of modern farmhouse style. Choose from several organic and geometric patterns that draw the eye and bring necessary contrast to your space. In a farmhouse bathroom, just a little touch of patterned black and white tile like this can go a long way.
