We’re always looking for new and stylish ways to add personality to our homes. It may seem easier to add flair to bedrooms and living rooms than to our bathrooms, but that’s where you’d be mistaken! In fact, a bathroom is a great place to get creative with your decor, considering it has arguably less foot traffic than other rooms of the home. Bathrooms can be a great way to showcase your unique style without drawing attention from the rest of your home’s decor. If you’re looking to decorate your bathroom in an exciting way, here are a few ideas!
If you’re looking for subtle accents to liven up your bathroom and add a polished look and feel, metallic hardware is a great place to start. Not only are these handles and knobs durable, but they match with everything! For a timeless look, you can opt for silver or copper hardware, or if you’re looking for something more contemporary, try gold handles! The shinier the metal, the more contemporary it appears, so keep that in mind when viewing your options.
Plants, Plants, and More Plants!
Not only do plants bring a little style to your space, but they also help purify the air in your home and help to relieve stress and anxiety! Adding some chlorophyll-filled friends doesn’t have to turn your bathroom into a greenhouse, but it does add a cozy atmosphere to your space.
If you’re worried about forgetting your plants, consider a succulent – they rarely need watering and are notoriously hard to kill. Another low-maintenance option is a pothos or philodendron. These low-maintenance houseplants are beginner-friendly and look great trailing down as they grow! (Or you can simply choose a fake plant – we won’t tell anyone).
Revamp With A Rug
A rug can be a great way to add a new personality to your bathroom without breaking the bank! Traditional bath mats can sometimes be too plain or even take away from the decorative aesthetic of your bathroom, so instead, opt for a colorful or patterned area rug or floor runner to add visual interest! If you’re looking to emulate this idea in your own bathroom, remember to purchase a non-slip rug mat to prevent any slips down the road, and to purchase a rug that is machine-washable or made of cotton or chenille.
It’s Okay To Be A Little Shelf-ish
To transform your bathroom into a space you’ll love, try adding pieces of art or some of your favorite aromatherapy items on a small shelf! Adding items to a shelf rather than installing them directly on the wall, gives you wiggle room when redecorating (especially for the holiday seasons). Add a pop of color with a painted floating shelf or some textural interest with a handmade vase or plant!
