10 Easy bathroom decor ideas

These bathroom decor ideas make it super easy to give your bathroom a fresh new look

1. Paint bland walls

A fresh coat of paint is an instant update and you can do it in a weekend! Paint bright stripes below an existing dado rail or install one. Stick to a neutral colour for the rest of the wall to counteract the busy pattern.

2. Hang art

Give your bathroom a lived-in feel by hanging a framed print above the bath. Make sure the artwork is framed properly so that it’s not affected by moisture.
3. Add his and hers mirrors

Make morning grooming a breeze with matching mirrors over a set of his and hers hand basins. Here a screed finish gives a clean-lined look.

4. Create a pamper zone

Stock up on your favourite pamper products and place them on a table next to the bath. For added comfort, position a chair topped with towels within arm’s reach.

7. Update towel hooks

A row of well-spaced wall-mounted towel hooks will keep your bathroom looking neat and tidy. Add bright towels and a laundry basket for a pop of playful colour.

8. Add task lighting and shelves

Create a functional, well-lit vanity by mounting wall sconces above the mirrors. For a more furnished look, add open shelves for storing towels and toiletries.

9. Do away with shower doors

Enhance the sense of space by doing away with shower enclosures and trays and turning your bathroom into a wet room. Make sure the floor slopes towards a drain.
