Key Features of Rustic Design
Love the look of rustic interiors? You can thank America’s earliest settlers for that! The raw, simple, and unrefined looks we love today are inspired by 19th-century homesteads crafted to meet life’s basic needs and with the locally sourced materials they were lucky enough to find, and why today’s staple rustic designs contain a combination of these materials (with a few upgrades here and there, of course).
To achieve a truly rugged look, there are several key features to consider adding to your design plan:
- Rugged, Natural Materials- Stone, tile, wood, and greenery
- Rich, Earthy & Organic Colors - Raw/weathered wood tones, rich/earthy accent colors like tans, blues, greens, grays, and reds
- Imperfect & Textured Accents - Brick, stone, or zellige tile, aged metals like copper, bronze.
- Décor- Animal fur, hides & antlers, oriental and accent rugs with simple motifs.
With wood-toned cabinets, a stunning textured soaking tub, and our Ionic Steel Rectified Porcelain Tile, this contemporary bathroom design is a worthy contender for any upscale home.
For a soft yet sophisticated bathroom design idea, why not take Tile Club’s Tribeca Mixed Plank Wall Tile for a spin? Its muted white, beige, and gray tones are perfect as a bathroom backsplash and shower walls in your cozy cabin retreat!
Combined with your most beloved modern amenities (we’re looking at you, soaking tub), you'll quickly be on your way to a bathroom remodel that makes your home sweet home all the more welcoming.
If you love the look of a textured tile for bathroom walls, you’ll fall head over heels with this Mallorca Blue Ceramic Subway Tile, a perfectly imperfect ceramic tile to mimic the look of traditional handcrafted zellige tile popular in modern rustic design.
Tile: The Best Choice For Rustic Bathrooms
Sustainable, long-lasting, and highly durable, tile is one of the best bathroom building materials for any design goal.
Enjoy all of the benefits of a wood floor without the maintenance hassle with a wood-look Gems Bianco Porcelain Tile from Tile Club. Try this open concept earthy bathroom idea with this or one of our other wood-look tiles to find the perfect wood-tone for your taste.
Unlike traditional wood flooring that becomes damaged when overexposed to water, moisture, and humidity, floor tile materials like porcelain and glass are impervious to water and moisture. What’s more, porcelain tile and glass tile can be imitated to look like wood (and other rugged materials like metal and stone), which means you won’t have to sacrifice your dream design to accommodate practicality.
Wood-look tiles also come in countless color and shape variations that make it simple to weave modern or contemporary design elements into your nature-inspired bathroom. They are easy to wash, are pet-friendly, and won’t make you wince with worry every time someone steps out of the shower or tub dripping water all over the place.
Big on texture? Tile Club’s collection of zellige-inspired ceramic tiles, like this Mallorca Grey Ceramic Square Tile, puts texture at the top of your list for tile backsplashes and shower walls. Choose from other neutral and organic colors like green, white, and shades of blue. Just search Mallorca and La Riviera ceramic tiles to find the right fit for your vintage-inspired bathroom design!
Since many porcelain, ceramic, marble, and glass tiles are also approved for use as shower tile and bathroom backsplash tile, achieving a consistent design throughout your powder room or en-suite master bath is effortless.
Now onto the fun! Let’s take a look at some of today’s most beloved rustic bathroom tile ideas so you can find the inspiration you need to design the relaxingly rugged space of your dreams.
