18 Bathrooms for Shabby Chic Design Inspiration

If you’re a fan of soft colors and more of a timeworn look when it comes to interior design, you should definitely consider looking for some shabby chic inspiration the next time you decide to redesign or renovate your bathroom. The bathroom is really one of the most perfect rooms you can choose to work with for this style since you can do all sorts of things with cabinetry, vanities, tubs, sinks, mirrors, and decorative hardware to really emphasize the look. Not yet convinced? You will be after you browse through the following gorgeous bathrooms — all decorated with shabby chic design in mind.

Pink Floral Elegance

Floral designs look adorable and really help support your shabby chic look. The following bathrooms feature flowers in pink used as patterns on curtains, wallpaper, towels, and other things — but you could try blue, red, yellow, or any other color of your preference. Adding real flowers in a vase is also a beautiful accessory option!

Rustic Country & Timeworn Furniture

When it comes to shabby chic design, the older it looks, the better. Vanities, cabinetry, shelving units, chairs, and other furniture pieces that look like they’ve been painted several times and have strips of it flaking or rubbed off is exactly what you want! You can get some great antique items that bring a strong cottage or country feel to the whole bathroom.

Clean & White Simplicity

Maybe the tattered, weathered look isn’t quite your thing. That’s okay — you can still get a great shabby chic look by keeping it simple and choosing furniture or accessories that look newer. These two bathrooms do just that, while keeping color to a minimum as well.

Refined Style

Following the more clean and simple shabby chic look, you can also crank it up a notch and go for a theme that looks a bit more sophisticated — as opposed to looking like you’re living in a very old country house. These bathrooms make use of elegant hanging chandeliers, tiled flooring, and other details that bring a more lavish look to the overall feel of the design.
