How To Decorate Your Bathroom

The bathroom is one of the most heavily used areas of the home, so it only makes sense to make it beautiful. Yet, many people spend the bulk of their decorating budget on areas like formal living rooms that are only used to entertain guests and neglect their bathrooms. Why? Bathrooms can be a challenge to decorate. They are often small and have built in fixtures and tile color schemes that would involve a costly remodel instead of a lower cost redecorating project.

However, with some determination and creativity, you can come up with some great bathroom decorating ideas to turn even the most unattractive, out of date bath into an inviting and attractive space.

To begin your project, you’ll need to take a hard look at your bathroom. Think about what you can live with and what has to change. You’ll also want to think about how much time you can dedicate to your redecorating project. Bathroom décor ideas can be as simple as choosing new towels and rugs or as time consuming as painting wall tiles and linoleum flooring. You can quickly and inexpensively disguise an outdated tub with a neutral tan shower curtain or you can have a fiberglass shell put over the tub to give it a more modern look.

Next, think about which of the many bathroom decorating themes you’d like to recreate in your home. These small spaces are perfect for an Asian theme, which avoids clutter and has a soothing color palette. A beach, sea, or other nature theme is also ideal for bathrooms. For a room that is a bit out of date, a retro theme can be the perfect option, since you can simply enhance what is already there with vintage accents to make that outdated space look like a fun and funky bath.


Decorating a child’s bathroom can really be a fun and enjoyable process. Using an underwater themed movie like Disney’s Little Mermaid or Finding Nemo as inspiration is sure to be a hit with children who big movie lovers. Rubber duckies are also popular in a child’s bath. Of course, for kids who love a specific cartoon character, a bathroom that has been decorated with accessories related to that character will be a dream come true.


For someone who is tight on cash, budget bathroom decorating options are a must. Using a very different paint color is one relatively inexpensive way to completely change the look of the room. Another option is to shop for accessories in other rooms in your home. A vase from one room, a small framed print from another and a figurine from yet another with complementary colors and a similar theme may just work perfectly in your bathroom. Since you already own these items, your bathroom update won’t cost a cent.
