Whether you’re getting ready to take on another day, or unwinding after a long day with some much-needed self-care, your bathroom should be an inviting, calming space where you can decompress. These 6 unique bathroom decor tips can help you transform your bathroom from just another room in your house to a relaxing, meditative oasis.
1. Bring Nature Indoors
There’s nothing quite as relaxing as the great outdoors. Keeping plants in your home has been linked to a host of benefits including decreased fatigue, better mood, and general increased health and wellness. To create a tranquil, spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom, consider incorporating a variety of plants into your bathroom decor. When you’re shopping for plants to keep in your bathroom, look for leafy greens that thrive in dark, cool environments.
If you’re fully committed to the nature motif, or if you like the idea of plants but don’t have much of a green thumb, you should consider using a botanical wallpaper. This is a chic, trendy way to immerse yourself in nature every time you enter your bathroom.
2. Neon Signs
Did someone say spa day? Neon signs are currently one of the hottest interior design trends, and a simple way to make your bathroom feel like a chic spa. The vivid neon creates a soothing atmosphere to transport you away from the worries of everyday life and put you in the right mindset to focus on what really matters—taking care of your wellness.
Creating a custom LED neon sign adds another layer of personalization to your bathroom and allows you to truly make your space your own. Neon signs are simple to assemble and can be mounted on your wall very quickly, making them an ideal choice to elevate your bathroom’s decor if you don’t want to spend a ton of time or money.
3. Innovative Lighting
Choosing mounted wall lamps that complement your bathroom’s overall motif is one way to add a touch of elegance to your bathroom. From vintage, ornate sconces to more modern, minimalist fixtures, mounted lights can give your space a touch of sophistication that you typically find in upscale spas or hotel bathrooms.
Incorporating a lavish chandelier or other hanging light fixture is another unique way to use lighting to effortlessly elevate your space and can help pull together your bathroom’s decor around a central, statement fixture. For an extra special touch, consider using mounted candle holders, and swap out seasonally scented candles for aromatherapy purposes. Plus, a candlelit bathroom makes a great setting for a DIY spa session.
4. Unique Shower Curtains
Just because shower curtains are one of the most standard bathroom accessories, doesn’t mean your shower curtain has to be basic. Choosing a unique shower curtain is an easy, effective way to showcase your own personal style and tie together colors, patterns, textures, and prints that are featured elsewhere in your bathroom.
From transparent, brightly colored shower curtains to shower curtains that feature famous pieces of art, you can find a shower curtain to fit virtually any style. Shower curtains are also a great way to play off existing themes in your bathroom’s decor. For example, if you have a jungle-themed bathroom, consider an animal print or botanical print shower curtain. If you want a modern, minimalist theme, consider hanging a statement shower curtain that features a piece of abstract art.
5. More Mirrors
When you pick out mirrors for your bathroom, think outside the box! From oblong to circular mirrors or rustic to modern mirrors with LED lights, choosing a unique mirror to complement your bathroom’s existing decor is an easy way to elevate your space.
Since bathrooms are typically one of the smallest rooms in the house, strategically placing multiple mirrors in your bathroom can make your bathroom appear larger than it really is. For a more eclectic bathroom, mixing different shapes and styles is a unique decor choice that can give the illusion of more space.
6. Vintage Accents
Incorporating high-quality, vintage pieces into your bathroom is a fantastic way to take your decor to the next level. Whether you want a full retro theme, or just want to include some stunning vintage accents, a vintage piece of furniture or decor can make your bathroom feel just as luxurious as the ornate bathrooms you see in classic movies.
Although vintage tubs are a staple in retro bathrooms, you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars installing a new tub to reap the benefits of vintage accents in your bathroom. Vintage wicker and rattan shelves, trays, and baskets, for example, have become very popular in upscale bathroom decorating and can have the added benefit of providing you with more storage space for your bathroom essentials.
Light up your space
Extensive bathroom renovations can be pricey and time-consuming. If you want to turn your bathroom into a relaxing, personalized space, consider adding unique elements to completely transform the decor of your bathroom without spending tons of time and money.
