Rustic modern bathroom designs (and transitional bathroom designs) are quite popular bathroom remodel styles selected by homeowners in San Diego. So today we are going to feature a bathroom we built for a client in San Diego a little earlier this year (October 2016). This homeowner, in our opinion, had a beautiful original bathroom. However, she wanted to make use of some wasted space. She had a soaker tub, but really wanted a jetted tub. Additionally, she simply wanted to make the space a different design style to match the rest of her home.
In the “before” image above you can see a “make-up” counter which the homeowner felt was wasted space. Additionallly, next to the soaker tub (which was awkwardly placed) there was an additional vanity. To create more useable space, our client had us remove the “make-up counter”. Removing that area combined with eliminating the soaker tub allowed us to install a jetted tub against the wall which opened up the bathroom space tremendously.
Fortunately we still had enough space to keep the second vanity in her bathroom. To brighten up her space we removed the dark window covering and installed simple blinds. The lighting above the mirrors was replaced with “lighted mirrors” and we added a beautiful chandelier. The rustic stacked stone backsplash behind the vanities added to the rustic modern theme of the bathroom. The pebblestone tile under the sleek jetted tub completed the look!
Our client took advantage of the remodel to add a modern niche with a glass insert into her newly tiled shower. She also had us install a pebbled tile floor to compliment the pebbled tile flooring which was installed under her new jetted tub. The shower was a perfect compliment to the rest of the bathroom remodel.
The difference in the before and after of this alcove are subtle but make a huge impact in the newly designed bathroom space. Our client added a drawer in her new cabinet as well as a countertop which matched the rest of the vanities. For a final touch, we installed floating vanities so she could add some simple accents to the space.
Rustic Modern Bathroom Ideas
Clients sometimes want to know what is appropriate for a specific design. The truth is, you can create any space that you want. Do not feel obligated to stay to a certain “design” because an eclectic design for your bathroom is also acceptable. You are designing your bathroom for your personal comfort first and foremost.
If you are wondering how to pull together a rustic modern bathroom, we suggest using natural materials and colors that are found in nature for the rustic part of the design. That is why this bathroom incorporates stone in behind the vanities. The pebble tile reflects pebbles you would find in nature. For this particular bathroom the smooth modern jetted tub, chandelier, and the faucets reflect a modern design.
