Bathrooms are difficult rooms to decorate. They are associated with messy cleaning jobs and putting more effort into decorating them is often the last thing we want to do, especially after scrubbing the toilet. But it’s time to change your attitude and start thinking about making your bathroom reflect your personal style and turn it into a sanctuary to go to start and end the day!
Bathrooms are often outfitted with plain tile and white sinks, toilets, and bathtubs, especially if you live in rented housing. A blank canvas like this makes it super easy to add a color scheme of your choice and a few other nice decorative touches. Read on to discover some charming and inexpensive additions you can make to your bathroom!

Choose a color scheme for soft furnishings
It’s time to throw out the old towels, bath mat and shower curtain and go shopping! Choosing a color scheme for your bathroom really ties everything together. It’s also the cheapest and easiest task to start, which has a huge impact on the overall look of a bathroom.
Choose a soft pastel color to make your bathroom look more spacious. If you choose pink, for example, go all out and buy soft, fluffy towels in pink. Choose a shower curtain and bath mat with fun pink prints.
Plants for a natural touch
Greenery is a great way to make any room more sophisticated. Consider some succulents in cute pots that match your color scheme. Or maybe some hanging plants if you’re handy with a screwdriver. Plants can be placed around the toilet tank or next to the bathtub to brighten up these spaces.
Are you someone who doesn’t have green fingers and has said goodbye to more plants than you can count? Buy some fake plants, we won’t tell anyone! There are so many excellent options for fake plants.
Cute trinkets in a bathroom can make all the difference by adding a touch of elegance to the room. Consider choosing a tray next to the sink to display items, like your soap, toothbrush holder, and cotton pads.
Instead of using the original packaging your soap comes in, you can choose a fancy dispenser that you can pour your soap into. Similarly, look for some matching accessories to store toothbrushes and the like. Add a candle and maybe a small bouquet of flowers to amp up the scent!
And don’t forget functional items like trash cans and toilet brushes! They are worth replacing and can add a new look to your bathroom.
An eye-catching image can also enhance a bathroom and add some personality to the room. Consider a line print or an abstract print in a bold black frame, this will really elevate the style of the room without breaking the bank!
Now that your bathroom is looking more on-trend, it might be time to reevaluate some of the other rooms in your home. Our article on home design ideas you’ll love it’s great to inspire you!
