It’s time for a French Country Bathroom Inspiration round-up. This is a great way to get your creative juices flowing before you dive into your own bathroom makeover!
How do you prefer to get started on a project?
Are you a total design natural, and you know exactly what you want right away?
Do you need someone else to come in to give suggestions?
Or, are you like me, and need a good Pinterest session to help you find just the right starting point?
How I Plan for Home Projects
I’ve gathered some of my favorite French country bathroom inspiration images that are helping me figure exactly the feel I want for our current bathroom remodel.
While these bathrooms vary in size and shape, I love to pick and choose favorite elements from each space and figure how I could work or rework them into our bathroom. This is typically how I always start a project, proceeded by planning a design board and what products we need to purchase. (View our before images and design board here).
French Country Bathroom Inspiration
Feel free to relax and get comfortable while I show you some wonderful inspiration below, and I’ll follow it up with some design sketches my husband did for our space while we were in planning mode. If you simply want more bathroom inspiration, take a look at my curated Bathroom Pinterest Board which has all sorts of goodies.
*Disclaimer – I work hard to find the original source for these images. However, I don’t always succeed in my search. Where the original source cannot be found, I have linked to the Pinterest source where I did find that image. Hopefully that helps.
1 – Open Shelving
I think open shelving adds character to any space.
2 – Small Space Design
We have a small bathroom, with almost this exact layout. This image is proof that even small spaces can be very beautiful . . . and when possible, adding a window can make a huge difference.
3 – Marble and Glass
I love the marble border here with the drop in tub, and the glass doors make it feel very spacious. This look would work for either a vintage or modern bathroom style.

4 – TIDBITS French Country Master Bathroom
I have to throw in our own Master Bathroom makeover – simply because I want to be sure our home flows together well 😉
5 – Bead Board and Two Toned Walls
This bead board and two-toned wall paint looks great in this space.
6 – French Country Bathroom Vanity
This French style dresser turned into a white vanity is absolutely stunning!

7 – Built In Shelving
Dreamy Whites never disappoints! There is much to love about this space, but I’m always a big fan of built in recessed shelving.

10 – Ornate Frames and Antique Elements
Just look at that large mirror and ornate candles. No one does French country style quite like Courtney from the French Country Cottage. Her bathroom spaces are full of inspiration.

11 – Armoires and Chandeliers
I love the use of an armoire in this bathroom to store towels and linens. The large crystal chandelier is another gorgeous touch in this french country bathroom design.

12 – Brass Fixtures
Here is another great example of open shelving. Notice the brass faucet? I think it looks perfect in this french bathroom.
13 – Pastel Color Palette
I’m convinced any cottage space needs a touch of blue. The pastel colors used in this french country bathroom are so soothing

14 – White and Bright
A lovely example of delicate white on whites. And that clawfoot bathtub with those white tiles is totally dreamy!
15 – Bead Board Cabinetry
I’m still debating the wall treatment for our space, or if I should just leave it plain. But this bead board wall and cabinetry seems to add a nice country layer to this bathroom.
16 – Gold Hardware
A marble top vanity and shower with white walls and touches of gold! Yum!

Our French Country Bathroom Design
Finally, while we were designing, my husband took some of my ideas and sketched them up. I think he missed his calling in life 😉 . These are some great sketches, don’t ya think?
As we’ve begun this project, some things have changed due to availability and resources. But those initial sketches helped us immensely in getting a better visual feel for what we could and could not do in our bathroom.
I’ll be sure to keep you updated with our progress!
Thanks for reading!
