Did you know that on average, a person will spend over 2 years of their life in the bathroom? That’s A LOT of time. So regardless of what type of budget you’re working with, don’t you think you deserve to enjoy the space you’ll revisit time and time again? We think so. We’ve put together 6 of the best bathroom décor tips so you can make the most of your bathroom regardless of its size. 


Did you know that some physicians have recently started prescribing house plants as a way to help alleviate feelings of loneliness, anxiety, and depression? Plants quite literally bring life with them wherever they go. Not only are they beautiful, but they’re practical, too! Plants can be used to beautify ugly old cupboards or shelves as well as cover up bathroom pipes. Plus, if you live in an area with a lot of pollution, some plants can even help purify the air in your home! We are huge fans of plants. And if you don’t have a green thumb, no problem. Fake plants these days can look just as beautiful as the real ones. 

Peel and Stick Tiles

Believe it or not, peel and stick tile has come a long way. In fact, most brands can’t even be distinguished from the real thing! And they’re a beautiful way to decorate your bathroom. Whether you keep it simple with bright, white subway tile or bring in some color with beautiful Spanish tile, this is a wonderful way to change up the look and feel of your bathroom. 


We know this sounds obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people forget that they can paint their walls–as many times as they want! And there are a plethora of ways to do it. For example, maybe painting one single accent wall is a good choice for you, or only painting the ceiling. Maybe you even let a friend paint a mural wall for you. There are so many fun things you can do with paint to make your space your own. The sky’s the limit! 


If you’ve got a bathroom without a lot of storage space, shelves are a great solution. Consider small, wooden corner shelves or a beautiful brass towel rack, or maybe sleek stainless steel is more your style. Regardless, shelving is a great way to bring in some storage space as well as some choice décor elements such as candles, books, plants, and more.

Swap Out the Mirror

Simple but effective. Just swap out the mirror your bathroom came with for something vintage or retro, or maybe a different shape altogether. This is a small change that can make a big difference! 


Bathrooms are a place you can really go wild with wallpaper because you’re in there enough to enjoy it, but not enough to get sick of it. We’re talking about that jungle-themed wallpaper you’ve had your eye on but have never had the courage to try, or maybe that Tuscan floral or Hawaiian wallpaper you’ve been dreaming about. The bathroom is the perfect place to experiment and have some fun.
