You don't have to live in a country cabin to enjoy the warmth and coziness of a rustic bathroom. When it comes to creating an idyllic commode, focus on earthy hues, raw materials — stone, wood, metal — and tons of texture. Try incorporating some industrial elements, such as cement flooring or a pipe pendant light, or glamorous details like a crystal chandelier. Whichever route tickles your fancy, here are 12 rustic-inspired ideas to help you infuse some woodsy flair into your master bath.

1. Create mountain magic.

This mountain lodge-style bath is giving us major log cabin vibes. The contrast of the knotty timber, rough stone, and smooth ceramic is truly stunning.

2. Let the outdoors in.

A dramatic antler chandelier draws the eye upwards towards the cathedral ceiling. Large windows let in lots of natural light and offer picture (window) perfect views of serene, snow-covered wilderness from the comfort of a warm bubble bath.

3. Say 'yes' to ceiling beams.

For a more contemporary twist, take a cue from this sprawling space. Cherry wood floors and crisp white paint anchor the design. The stone accent wall acts as a stunning backdrop for the free-standing ceramic tub, while the wood ceiling beams perfectly frame a pair of striking skylights.

4. Repurposed materials add a sense of history.

The organic shape of the glass vessel sink complements the natural beauty of the repurposed stone accent wall in this bathroom redux. A circular mirror hangs above a sturdy wood vanity, while a full-length mirror leans against the opposite wall — both perfect for reflecting the natural light that pours through the adjacent window.

5. Incorporate a hint of rustic charm.

The exposed pipe shower head and sliding barn-style door balance the chic all-white color palette adding gorgeous rustic charm to an otherwise modern bath.

6. Combine rustic style with industrial details.

Industrial corrugated metal wall panels paired with rustic wood plank-sheathed walls is a match made in design heaven. The exposed pipe shower head, concrete soaking tub, and trough-style sink pull it all together.

7. Have fun playing with proportions.

Designer Jennifer Worts plays with scale and proportion in this Muskoka cottage. The custom open construction wood vanity anchors the space. Coupled with whitewashed shiplap walls, the space feels light and airy. Instead of a mirror, a large art installation is mounted above a small vessel sink.

8. Make a statement with exposed brick.

A sparkling drop pendant, freestanding soaking tub, and glass shower partition offset the more rustic elements — exposed brick wall, natural wood vanity with bronze finish drawer pulls, and woven baskets for storage — imparting polished elegance.

9. White wainscoting is very charming.

We love the warm, neutral palette in this San Francisco remodel. The white wainscoting, vintage-style vanity table, and suspended wood frame mirror give this cozy bath beautiful layers of texture and dimension.

10. Stone and wood make the perfect pair.

Rustic minimalism at its finest in this Arte Povera-inspired penthouse. Designer Vincent Van Duysen seamlessly integrates cement, reclaimed wood, and black metal fixtures into a cohesive — not to mention ultra-chic and relaxing — commode.

This live oak countertop is everything! Exposed pipes, chains, and brushed nickel hardware are surprisingly refreshing. A pair of wall-mounted lanterns up the ambiance. Finally, intricately carved woodwork and clay pots add handcrafted flair.
