We have been talking about Shabby Chic design lately because it is more popular now than ever before in every room from bedrooms, dining rooms, kitchens and now baths.

It is a nod to the English and French country styles but will give you so much freedom.

Think of Shabby Chic this way. Modern is one style, and a set principle for design like the Apple store in all white. Contemporary is modern with one or two more traditional elements or accents.

Shabby Chic is a mixture of a bunch of different elements from modern to traditional. The secret is to keep it more chic and less shabby.

Following are a few ideas.

Best Shabby Chic Lighting for the Bathroom

Feiss 'Urban Renewal' Pendants - $153


This is a great way to save space when you don’t have room for side sconces in your bath. You can still cross illuminate for shaving or applying makeup.

Minka Lavery 'Provence' Vanity Light - $200


Pair the Minka Lavery vanity light with an oval shaped mirror. It is a more French Country style or traditional Shabby Chic.

Crystorama 'Calypso' Pendant - $258


I love this playful pendant by Crystorama. Use this in an unexpected way to create to create your Shabby chic bath. Informal crystal and glass is popular in this style.

Feiss 'Salon Maison' Chandelier - $963


Pairing a Venetian mirror with a Bronze and crystal chandelier by Feiss make quite a Shabby Chic statement over a bathtub.

Final Thoughts

So you can see now that Shabby Chic isn’t necessarily what you use but how you put it together. In Shabby Chic, a concert of different styles can create a more unique environment than a more classic style like modern or traditional.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
