Decorating Tips for the Bathroom

A clean, well-designed bathroom can become a sanctuary when you just want to relax in the tub. Decorating a bathroom and getting it organized is easy, even if you don’t have a lot of space.

Organize

Staying organized is easier with a linen closet, but many bathrooms don’t offer the luxury of storage space. Here are some tips and tricks to keep you organized.

Purchase baskets to keep your toiletries and towels organized. Baskets can come in handy when trying to find a place for a variety of different, lotions, makeup and other beauty essentials. If there is no storage space in your bathroom, place your filled baskets on a bookcase to keep the room neat and tidy.

Add shelves to your bathroom. There are a variety of shelves to fit the space you have available in your bathroom. Some of them are easy to install, while other may require some handyman skills. There are shelves that can be placed right above your toilet that are easy to setup. Simply place the shelves on the floor. These particular shelves are designed to with an opening for your toilet, so you can make the most out of your bathroom space. Other shelves, such as wall shelves, require measuring, nails, hammers and a more detailed installation process.

Purchase towels that match your shower curtain, bath mats and wall art. Roll up the towels, or fold them neatly, and place them on the shelf. The towels can add a pop of color to the bathroom or just blend in with the rest of the decor. If you want to add a touch of elegance, place bath salts, candles and other spa items on the shelves to coordinate with the towels.

Small glass jars can be used to store cotton swabs, cotton balls and other bathroom items. Use jars that same size, or jars in contrasting sizes to create beautiful accent pieces.

Color Choices

The bathroom should be a place of relaxation, so choose different hues of blues and greens for a calming effect. Hang framed art prints of waterfalls or beaches to keep with the serene ambiance you are trying to create.

Reds and oranges are high-energy colors. If you need some help to wake up and get ready in the morning, these mood-boosting colors can give you a little extra push.

If you are not set on one color, paint your walls white or beige and use accessories to add color. Shower curtains, bath mats and art prints can jazz up any bathroom. The best part is they can be easily switched out for something new when you want to change your bathroom colors. You can easily rotate the accessories and change your bathroom decor for every season.
