4 Tips for Log Cabin Bathroom Design

Here’s What You Should Keep In Mind

Designing your home can be challenging, especially when the home already has a “theme,” such as being a Log Cabin. When it comes to the bathrooms, there are certain things to keep in mind that will help make the space cohesive with the rest of the house, and also feel like a comfortable place to retreat to “as necessary,” if you know what I mean. Sarabeth Asaff provides us with some excellent tips to keep in mind:

 

Wood Tones…

If your bathroom has drywall or tiled walls and floors, consider bringing in some of the natural wood found elsewhere in the home. Provided that the wood is sealed to keep out moisture, wood wall paneling, a wood floor and wood vanities can really set the tone in the bathroom…

 

Textures…

In addition to natural wood tones, include stone with a rough or natural finish, such as slate or travertine. Your might select a natural stone for the shower floor. Consider adding a textured sink, such as a vessel sink carved out of a single rock or a hammered copper sink…

 

Colors…

Keep the colors in the bathroom light by bringing in natural colors and tones that occur outdoors — from fields, the sky, nearby lakes and pastures. Many log homes use a golden shade of wood that can help keep the bathroom warm in tone; balance this with natural greens and other cool colors to keep it from getting to orange or overwhelming in color…

 

Accents…

Accent your design with natural greenery and textures. Hang one or two plants or place small potted plants on shelves… Add some texture to the ceiling by adding faux wood beams or by covering the ceiling with reeds…
