How to Style Your Bathroom

In our home, what rooms do we typically care most about when it comes to a full revamp? The kitchen and bathroom. But realistically, those renovations can require a quite a bit of cash and only really make sense if we own the home. And when it comes to styling bathrooms, a lot of us feel a stumped. How much can you do to make a bathroom look better without making some major (and expensive!) changes? In a room where everything has a specific function, you want those items to also be beautiful.

Let’s take a look at how we can transform our bathrooms into the perfect getting ready space.

Fixtures and Hardware

Swapping out light fixtures, cabinet hardware, or even a showerhead are easy and affordable ways to up your style in a small space. Check out more rental friendly changes for your home here.

Mirror

Your mirror likely takes up the biggest amount of wall space. Give your bathroom a facelift by trading in your old mirror for a new one. Our suggestion? We are loving round mirrors right now!

Towels

You obviously need towels and, most often, they’ll be laying out—so they might as well be pretty! New towels or not, take your bath towel and fold it into thirds (vertically) and drape over the side of the tub. A basket or stool to store and display extra towels is always a great touch.

Bathtub or Shower

It sounds silly, but there’s actually a lot you can do to pretty up a bathtub or shower. Drape fresh eucalyptus over the showerhead for some added greenery and an aroma-therapeutic shower experience. Hate your shower floor? Cover it with a teak slat floor tile. Want to add some luxury to your bathtub? Add a tub tray for leisurely tea drinking and book reading.

The main goal: Keep it tidy! The simpler the better. Soap, shampoo, conditioner, a razor, and face wash are all you really need.

Counter

The key to a beautiful countertop is to love everything that’s visible, no matter how functional. Whether hung or out on the counter, keep hand towels in a tri-fold. Find a soap dispenser that you love. If you keep makeup brushes, cotton balls, or Q-tips out on the counter, put them in pretty containers. Glass jars and canisters are game changers!

The Extras

Here’s where we can have fun! Plants, candles, jewelry dishes, and vases with bare twigs are all on the list. Or add art. (We love the boldness of this skull above.) So get creative! Maybe you want to install a branch on the wall instead of in a vase.
