Farmhouse bathrooms are known for being welcoming spaces for you or guests. However, since its original conception, farmhouse style has gone through many transitions and is now frequently blended with other interior design styles. To help you navigate those branches and create your ideal bathroom, here are 25 of our best farmhouse bathroom lighting ideas.
Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, farmhouse bathrooms must also be highly practical with their furnishings and fixtures. The lights that you use over your vanity and mirrors have a great impact on the room stylistically as well as practically. With that in mind, choose lights that work with your mirrors, cast light in the proper directions, and use the ideal lighting temperature for any tasks done at the vanity.
Traditional farmhouse bathrooms frequently utilize symmetry to create very classic, neat bathrooms. While your built ins and vanities all impact that layout, you can use your lights to further that scheme. This bathroom uses three wall sconces to balance the large vanity, but pendant lights could also be used between in the same areas to create a balanced design.
This rustic modern bathroom has glorious wood walls everywhere the eye can see. Because of that, the accents used in the bathroom are minimal and highly intentional. For bathrooms like these, you can use subtle lights in recessed lighting or small, subdued lighting fixtures. That way, the details of the walls, flooring, and tub can all shine as the main accents.
Wallpapers, wall sconces, and roman shades are a perfect match for classic farmhouse bathrooms. Each of these facets come in many different designs, finishes, and aesthetics, so you can lean into an elegant country style or a modern farmhouse with a limited color palette. In any case, the sconces you use and the elements they're paired with should all work towards the same style goals.
Nothing says "elegance" quite like a chandelier or pendant placed above a soaking tub. A country style chandelier like Crystorama's Broche Round Pendant fits into farmhouse style through its color and rounded shape, but even more than that, the motifs of natural leaves and candles perfectly convey a countryside aesthetic.
In this bathroom, there are several recurring numbers. There are two lighting fixtures, two mirrors, two sinks, two soap dispensers, and so on. However, the lighting fixtures partly break the mold by featuring three lights each. This subtle difference is a great way to fit into the room's overarching design while also setting a new trend for the entire vanity space.
If you have a more traditional farmhouse bathroom, you'll likely match elements to create a very cohesive design. The warm brass of the wall sconces tie in very well to the warm metals of the mirror and faucet, even if they are not exact matches. Matching metals is handy not only in traditional spaces, but in small bathrooms that you want to feel cohesive and classic.
Bathroom mirrors with lights are becoming increasingly popular for their sleek style and practical lighting. These mirrors can even be used in farmhouse style. When using mirrors with lights in farmhouse bathrooms, consider what farmhouse elements you pair with the mirror. Natural materials on the walls, farmhouse ceiling lights, farmhouse sinks, and other elements can all be tailored to match your mirror and create an elevated farmhouse style.
Farmhouse style frequently highlights different materials and textures to create dynamic spaces. This bathroom shows off that principle with the shiplap walls, tasselled towel, wood vanity, surfaces, and the wall sconces. Even though the wall sconces may not blatantly convey a farmhouse style, they do fit into the scheme thanks to their use of texture and soft shapes.
Like we said before, black and white is a classic color combination for modern farmhouse bathrooms. If you want to break that mold and add in warmth, look no further than your lighting fixtures. Designer lights that use black, white, and warm metals can further the room's color scheme and convey the natural warmth of farmhouse style.
In this warm farmhouse bathroom, a single pendant light serves to illuminate the vanity. Even though this room brings in a lot of natural light as well, it needs more lights to provide essential task lighting. That's why recessed lights are subtly incorporated into the room's vaulted ceiling. Recessed lights are often used in living rooms and kitchens, but they can work well in bathrooms to create task lighting without detracting from any other focal points or accent lights.
Although many bathrooms have all the fixtures, faucets, and handles match, this isn't necessary for all bathrooms. Having differences in finishes, metals, and materials can help you create a more modern or eclectic bathroom. In this scenario, the light matches the draw pulls and handles, but the faucet's color ties back into the wallpaper. Don't be afraid to vary your finishes and details to create a unique farmhouse bathroom.
Modern farmhouse style is often defined by its use of black and white. Whether you have white shiplap walls like this bathroom or painted white walls, you can use black throughout the room's mirrors, lights, and hardware to create that classic color palette. Matte black is the most popular finish for farmhouse style lighting fixtures in this color scheme, since glossy finishes tend to be more prominent in contemporary styles.
When you're creating a farmhouse bathroom, the lights you incorporate into the room have a great impact on the room's overarching style and tone. Modern farmhouse, country farmhouse, and traditional farmhouse are only three of the most popular branches of farmhouse style you can display in your bathroom. As you create your ideal bathroom, consider the ideas listed above for your farmhouse bathroom vanity lights and other lights for your home.
