Lots of time is spent on making our houses into homes, but one room is often overlooked. Hours of time are spent finding the perfect pieces for the living room, bedroom or den, but the place that we spend a small portion of EVERY day is often decorated with a generic bath collection and then forgotten about.
Here are a few easy swaps that can make your bathroom uniquely yours:
Tissue box holder/covers– Lay tissues in a canvas box or metal tin.
Lotion and soap dispensers– Check out etsy.com for fun ideas on bottles turned useful. Here’s a Coke bottle, but you can find them in almost any variation.
Toothbrush holders– Use test tubes decorated to match your theme.
Cotton ball or Q-tip canisters– Stash these products in ball jars either hung on the wall or lined up on the vanity.
Wastebaskets– Trash cans come in an amazing variety of shapes, styles and materials. Just take a Google at all of the designs out there.
Shower caddies– Install a glass shelf in the shower instead. It’s much prettier and easier to clean than the small wire frames of the caddies.
To hide unattractive items like electric toothbrushes and curling irons, check out these awesome DIY storage ideas for bathrooms.
Also, don’t forget that bathroom counters and tub surrounds can be great places for tall, slender vases of silk flowers or trays with your favorite jars of bath salts and/or linens.
One piece of distinct artwork added to a bare wall could save a lot of time painting (bathrooms have many cabinets and plumbing connections that make painting a small space take a long time!)
Cheers to buidling a beautiful bathroom! Julie
