It’s a hub of activity but that doesn’t mean the bathroom can’t be stylish. The first step is getting things organized…and then layer on the luxe!! Spend a little, spend a lot, my top 10 tips come at all price points.
#1 – Trays
Grouping items together on a tray equals instant organization. I’ve done an entire blog post on the virtues of organizing with trays and I never grow tired of incorporating one or two into my design work.
#2 – Baskets
Not enough storage space for towels? Add a basket and a little organic texture to your space.
#3 – Storage containers
It’s convenient to have staples like Q-tips and cotton balls on the vanity counter and placing them in beautiful containers makes them pretty too.
#4 – Layer on the towels
My ‘go to’ is usually white but stacks of thick, fluffy towels say luxury in any colour.
#5 – Play with texture
Bathrooms are primarily hard surface so adding various textures helps to soften the space.
#6 – Introduce greenery
Whether live or permanent, a fresh cut bouquet or a potted plant, botanicals add a fresh inviting layer.
#7 – Add a piece of furniture
If your space is large enough consider adding a piece of furniture. It could be as large as this cabinet or as small as a stool or side table by the bathtub.
#8 – Wallpaper
The possibilities are endless with wallpaper. Check with your designer or supplier to ensure that the type you’re choosing is compatible with the installation location.
#9 – Add a rug
An area rug in this larger bathroom or a simple runner in a smaller room warms both the space and the toes!
#10 – Drapes
Nothing gives instant luxury in the bathroom more than a drapery treatment. Soft, flowing…Calgon take me away…
