Quick And Easy Bathroom Decorating Ideas


We often focus on decorating the bedroom or kitchen more than other rooms in the house. It is easy to overlook the bathroom. However, if you really think about it, the bathroom is in a sense, your haven. It’s the place where you can get complete and utter peace from the stresses of daily life.

The bathroom is often the most overlooked space in the house. You may have found the perfect home online (for example, on PropertyGuru), but the bathroom leaves much to be desired. No matter, this guide will provide you with plenty of decorating ideas that are quick and easy and won’t end up draining your bank account – well, not too much of course.





1. The paint job


One of the easiest and simplest ways to give your bathroom a quick facelift is by giving it a paint job. Not only does this switch up your décor, it gives your bathroom a hygienic edge too. If you are dealing with moisture issues and moldy walls, a good coat of paint with additives can be just the thing your bathroom needs to prevent mold growth. Thus, do be sure that you check out all of the options on the market before you settle on your paint. While you’re at it, don’t forget to give your cabinets a fresh coat of paint as well. You can choose to go the mono-tone route or give it a brighter color to give it more of a pop! There are endless décor options to choose from to give your bathroom a whole new lease on life.

2. The lighting


Sometimes, an upgrade in lighting can make a massive difference in your bathroom. The kind of light fixture you choose can make or break your space, especially in small spaces like the bathroom. If your fixtures are giving your room a dated vibe, perhaps it’s time to look for a more modern option. For example, consider replacing those standard fluorescent light fixtures with an elegant chandelier. There are also plenty of other options available. Pendant lights and bar lights are also popular options that add just the right touch of modernity. Not only is lighting an opportunity to flex your personality, it helps provide an alluring ambience in your bathroom. Do take note that if there’s wiring to be done for the light fixtures, it’s best to leave that to a professional lest you gamble with electrocuting yourself.

3. Fixtures and fittings


Fixtures and fittings are small elements in your bathroom that can be easily overlooked. People often look at the big picture, and often neglect the small things. Of course, who has time to think about towel racks or cabinet handles when they’re thinking of making the largest impact. However, even the little things such as the taps and faucet, or even the toilet roll holder, can make a significant impact on your space. What’s more, these are simple upgrades that you can make on the cheap to give your bathroom a completely new look. While you’re at it, why not invest in soap holders and toothbrushes, or even a rack for all your shower goodies? This attention to detail will being you far in your bathroom decorating endeavor.

4. Textiles


Old and worn textiles such as bath mats and towels can sometimes make your bathroom look tired, bringing down the whole energy of the space. If your textiles have not been replaced in a while, perhaps you need to start looking. Although they are meant to bring in comfort, they don’t have to be totally utilitarian. Your bathroom textiles are a great opportunity to add in dashes and splashes of color to liven up your space. Even adding a simple shower curtain in an interesting pop of color can be useful.

5. Declutter


One of the biggest problems for small spaces is the clutter. A cluttered bathroom just makes the whole place look messy, even when they’re clean. With the myriad of items everyone has in their bathrooms, it’s easy to overlook the clutter when it’s become the norm. Think about maximizing your storage surfaces by adding floating shelves or even baskets mounted on the walls. Get creative with your storage solutions. Tall pieces of slim furniture will do wonders for your storage needs, while still taking up the least amount of space. If you can’t add furniture, think about making the small storage solutions work. For example, you can use a sugar bowl to store cotton balls and other odds and ends, or even use a tall vase to hold toilet rolls. With everything in its place, and when everything has a place, your bathroom will start to look more organized and well-decorated.

6. Statement mirror


Your bathroom mirror may be serving its purpose well, but have you given it the thought it deserves? You probably haven’t changed it since you moved in. Heck, it might be very likely that the mirror was there before you. Although it may be serving its purpose well so far, it is one of the easiest ways to give your bathroom a facelift. Whether you prefer something small and subtle or a large statement mirror, there is something available for every taste and bathrooms of every size.

7. Go green


A bit of nature can be just the finishing touch your bathroom needs. Consider adding some life – and some color – into your bathroom with some greenery. Consider adding potted plants – preferably one that does well in the heat and humidity of the bathroom – like orchids or ivy. If your thumb isn’t green, not to worry. You can always jazz up your space with some fake greenery – then, you don’t even have to water them!

8. Art


Just because your bathroom is a space of function over form, doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve to be decorated in artwork. No matter your style or taste, art has a place in every room. Although, you might have to treat your art pieces to make them waterproof, or at least, more immune to the moisture. If you have an existing piece that you think is perfect for your bathroom space, you may be able to have it treated. Alternatively, you can also go for some cheap and cheerful prints that can be easily tossed and replaced in the event that they do get wet.
