home remodeler dallas (2)Bathroom remodeling is all about creating a relaxing, welcoming and luxurious personal space in your home.  French country bathrooms create a private retreat with a regal ambiance in your home that combines a rustic look, but with all the comforts you could possibly want. Based on the 17th century opulent country houses in the Provence region of France, modern French country bathrooms emphasize style and comfort.

With light and airy color schemes, French country bathrooms are typically done in neutral colors such as pastels or shades of white. Mosaics or tiles on the walls and floors, combined with vibrant accent pieces, provide splashes of colors that create a warm, cozy, inviting atmosphere.

In classic French country bathrooms, the bathtub is usually the main focal point. The tub is often a freestanding claw foot or pedestal bathtub, although a stone step in one is also common. The emphasis is on comfort with a large tub where you can stretch out, relax and soak your cares away.

Antique or distressed furniture is an important part of the French country bathroom décor. Washbasins are often freestanding as well the towel racks. As an extra touch, many French country bathrooms also feature candelabras or small chandeliers that add a touch of opulence to the room.  There are many additional touches that you can add to personalize your bathroom, including framed photos, decorative metal tins, a basket filled with unusual soaps or bouquets of dried flowers.

Fabric is another key element in French country bathroom décor. Window treatments that pick up the colors of the accents, fabric shower curtains enclosing a claw footed tub, textured wall paper and small throw rugs all provide additional personalized touches as well as warmth to the room.
