Bathroom decorating can be fun, and it doesn’t have to be an expensive proposition. Some decorating ideas will help you to decorate your bathroom while keeping within your budget. Other decorating ideas can turn your bathroom into a theme-based room, such as a nautical theme. If you are tired of looking at the same bathroom décor day after day, take a weekend to set aside time for redecorating.
Ideas on a Budget
Simply changing the color scheme of your bathroom can give it a completely changed appearance. Choose complementary colors to give your bathroom a two-toned look. While you’re at it, you can redecorate your tiles instead of replacing them, which can be costly and messy. Use tile-transfer patterns to give your tiles a fresh appearance. Change the handles on your bathroom cabinets and drawers, making sure to select handles that fit any new theme you’re incorporating. You can also add mirrors and change the shower curtain and sink accessories to enhance the look of your bathroom.
Ideas for Nautical Theme
You can choose any theme you want for your bathroom decorating project, but a nautical theme is a popular theme for which there are many opportunities for accessories and wall décor. Decorate the walls with seashells and other beach souvenirs such as clam shells and starfish. Place these on shelves or simply use shadow boxes. A rustic sign of painted wood with “Private Beach” or a nautical expression helps set the new tone. Replace your towels and washcloths with ones that have decorative sea life or beach scenes. Small decorations, such as palm trees, can help dress up bare walls. Bathroom accessories, such as soap dishes, should be chosen to fit the new nautical theme.
Ideas for Towels
The manner in which you store your towels presents an opportunity to redecorate your bathroom. Move a wood storage cabinet, which can be as small or as large as you like, that has open shelves into your bathroom. Store your towels by rolling them into rolls and placing them on the shelves. You can also place storage hooks on the walls, and simply hang the towels on the hooks. Use a wall-mounted shelf that can be dressed up with lattice to store your towels in a decorative manner. For ideas that are a little more out-of-the-ordinary, try hanging your towels on hangers that are placed on wall hooks or on a small, free-standing ladder propped against a wall.
