When it comes to decorating our home, we usually focus on the living room, the bedroom, even the kitchen, and if we’re being honest, the bathroom is often the last place to get our attention. However, if you think about it, guests may not even see the bedroom or the kitchen (if it’s not open plan) but chances are they will use the bathroom. So it actually makes a lot of sense to fix the wrong and start decorating it too.
And it’s not just to show off, a beautiful bathroom makes us feel so much better about our home as we spend quite some time in it on a daily basis. So here are 15 easy ways that you can use to make your bathroom look absolutely gorgeous.
Add More Fuzziness
Get more soft towels and add a fuzzy rug to make the bathroom look more elegant and classy.
Dim the Lights
Install a recessed light dimmer switch to have an option of creating a mood.
Go beyond the eye and engage the sense of smell to the decor by adding scented candles and scent diffusers.
Who says you can’t hang pictures and art in the bathroom? You absolutely can and it will make the space look more complete and inviting.
If your bathroom is big enough to add a chair, do it. Not only you can use the extra seating, it will make the room look cozier and comfortable.
Declutter and Organize
Perhaps the most important thing you can do to your bathroom is to declutter the countertops and organize all accessories in an aesthetic manner. Get nice trays, baskets and jars to arrange all the small items and even make vignettes out of them. Hide unsightly shampoo bottles in cabinets and get nice containers for everyday use.

If your bathroom has a window, get some live houseplants to make it more lively. A sole orchid adds a lot of glamour and it will last for months. If your bathroom has no natural light, consider faux plants for a touch of green.
Experiment with Wall Decals
Don’t settle with boring plain or tiled walls, try wall decals that are easy to add and remove. The bathroom gives you entirely different options to play with wall art than other rooms of your home.
Add Decorative Items
Accessorizing the bathroom isn’t limited to bottles, containers and other useful items, you can add some decorative items to create an attractive display too. Rustic bathroom decor accents can have a big impact on making it look interesting.
Add Table Lamps
If you start treating the bathroom like any other room in your home you get so many more options to decorate. Such as adding table or floor lamps that add more comfortable lighting and make the place more inviting.
Frame the Mirror
Frame the vanity mirror for the elegance and luxury. You can get an already framed mirror or add DIY molding if you feel like it.
Fancy Up the Shower Curtains
Your shower curtains can look so much better. Go for a dark color, use tie backs and hide the rod behind molding.

Get a nice rug that makes a statement, you can even go for a real rug instead of a bathroom mat.
Change the Hangers
