Bathrooms are often one of the most neglected rooms in terms of decor. We spend so much time and effort making sure our living rooms and bedrooms look amazing, but the bathroom is usually an afterthought. But it doesn’t maintain to be that way! You can transform your bathroom into a stylish and welcoming space with a teeny bit of creativity. There are so many restrictions on what you can and cannot do, and it can be hard to find items that fit the space well. However, you can creatively turn your bathroom into a beautiful and interesting space! This blog post will discuss 12 ways to add interest to your bathroom using various decor items. Let’s get started!
Bathrooms are often small, so go big with your artwork! A large, striking piece will make a big impact and add a touch of sophistication. Plus, it’ll give you something nice to look at while relaxing in the tub. Area rugs are another great way to add texture and interest to the floor. For example, try a vibrant patterned rug or a plush white one for a spa-like effect.
Add a pop of color with Hexagon tiles
Hexagon tiles are all the rage right now, and for a good reason. They come in every color imaginable, so you can find a set that fits your style. They’re also super easy to install, even if you’re not particularly handy. For example, you can create a subtle but eye-catching backsplash with just a few tiles.
Get organized with mason jars
Mason jars are functional and stylish, which makes them perfect for bathrooms. You can use them to store everything from cotton balls to toiletry items. And if you’re feeling crafty, you can paint them or add labels. For example, you can use different paint colors to create a unique, colorful look.
Bring the outdoors in with plants
Plants add visual interest and a touch of nature to any space, including bathrooms. If your bathroom lacks natural light, opt for low-maintenance succulents or air plants that don’t require much sunlight to survive. For example, you can hang a few air plants in macramé hangers for a boho-chic vibe. Bathroom rugs in green or earthy tones also help bring the outdoors in.
Dress up your mirrors
Mirrors are necessary for any bathroom, but they don’t have to be boring! Dress up your mirror by adding a frame or hanging some decorative accents (make sure they’re not too close to the glass). You can also add a few LED lights around the frame for some drama. For example, you can hang some pom-poms or tassels from the frame for a fun, whimsical look.
Create additional storage with baskets
Bathrooms always need more storage space, especially if you have a small bathroom, as I do. Baskets are a great way to add extra storage without wasting too much space or making things look cluttered. Plus, they reach in all shapes and sizes, so you can find ones that fit your needs. For example, you can use a large basket to store towels or toiletries or add smaller baskets to hold extra toilet paper rolls.
Display pretty bottles
If you want a unique way to spruce up your bathroom decor, try displaying some pretty bottles filled with colorful liquids (like shampoo or soap). It’ll add some visual interest and make your bathroom look like something out of a magazine. For example, you could buy a few vintage bottles and fill them with liquid soap in different colors.
Hooks are ideal for bathrooms because they provide a place to hang towels (wet towels make for unappealing decor). But don’t just settle for plain old metal hooks-try using decorative hooks that fit your style. From wooden hooks to vintage doorknobs, the possibilities are endless. For example, you could hang some colorful towels on a distressed wooden hook to add a touch of rustic charm to your bathroom.
Make it personal with photos
Photos always make a space feel more personal and inviting, so don’t forget to add some to your bathroom! You can display them on shelves or hang them on the wall using washi tape or special frames designed for humidity-prone areas like bathrooms. Ensure they’re placed high enough that they won’t get splashed by water when taking a shower or bathtub. For example, why not create an eye-catching feature wall by hanging prints of your favorite family memories or landscapes?
Create an indoor garden
Bring some of the outdoors in by creating an indoor garden. Place a few potted plants near your windowsill or vanity for easy access to natural light, and make sure you choose ones that don’t need too much water or maintenance. Some great bathroom plant choices include snake plants, Chinese evergreens, dracaena, aloe vera, and peace lilies. For example, you can use aloe vera to make a soothing face mask, and the peace lilies can help purify the air.
Hang up jewelry hooks
If you have an abundance of necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, why not hang them on jewelry hooks? This is especially useful if your bathroom doesn’t have any built-in storage. Make sure you purchase waterproof hooks, or at least rustproof ones, so they don’t get damaged by water. For example, you can hang hooks on the wall or get jewelry stands to create a unique way to store and display your jewelry.
Use decorative items
Why not show off your personality by decorating the walls of your bathroom with decorative items? You can choose a wide variety of items, such as unique paintings and wall art or small trinkets like seashells. It’s up to you to determine what kind of look you want to create in your bathroom. Rugs and mats also work great for floors as they can help count a bit of color and texture to the bathroom. RugKnots and other similar stores offer some great options to choose from. They offer rugs designed for wet areas, so they will not get ruined easily.
