7 Bathroom Decorating Mistakes That Make It Look Cheap

Arranging all of your furniture up against the walls will make the space look cluttered and messy. Solution? Pull the furniture away from the walls and toward the center of the room as in this living room seating arrangement. This grouping of four chairs around a coffee table creates the perfect conversation area. Ground the furniture with an area rug.

“A common mistake is using cool, decorative tile on their bathroom floors that aren’t made for getting wet, which can make it really easy to slip on,” explained the designers at Studio Life.Style. “This can be fixed by either making the flooring slip-resistant which can be done with treatments, or making sure that the tile you choose is suitable for bathrooms.”

For New York–based designer Jane Abercrombie, the single biggest mistake when designing a bathroom is to plan the electrical components too late. “Remember, electrical planning needs to be done very early in the process,” she says. “For example, a hardwired makeup mirror is great mounted on the wall, but you need to remember this in the early phase. It’s so wonderful to have outlets in drawers—for hair dryers and straightening irons so they can be tucked away quickly and neatly. If you forget to do this, you can have someone cut a grommet hole in the drawer and use an extension cord from the wall outlet. This is a game changer!”

Davies-Gaetano agrees: “So often the importance of lighting is overlooked when designing a bathroom,” she says. “It’s always preferred to make sure that a bathroom has a good source of natural light as well as strategically placed overhead and vanity light. If your bathroom suffers from poor lighting, add a table lamp, floor lamp, or chandelier.”

A spacious, well-organized bathroom is truly life-changing. Take it from an editor who’s moved 10 times in 10 years and tested out all kinds of bathrooms to varying degrees of amazingness (or lack thereof). A great bathroom should, of course, be visually pleasing, but most importantly, it should serve its purpose well: adequate storage for everything from bath products to towels, lighting that serves the tasks performed in a bathroom, and finishes that are resistant to humid environments.

The other main bathroom design offender: lighting. “There’s nothing worse than a poorly lit bathroom,” says Roth. “People often forget that they need multiple light sources and end up with a single dull sconce—which basically ensures you’ll leave the house with scary clown makeup. Try to incorporate both decorative and task lighting.”

DécorFeb 20, 20187 Subtle Mistakes That Instantly Cheapen Your Bathroom

This post was originally published on March 2, 2017, and has since been updated.

Placing too many decorative accents on the entire surface of a table will make a room look cluttered. Instead, edit the number of decor accessories and then decorate the table in a vignette style (one grouping) or create two groupings as in this photo. First, edit what you already have on the table top. Only display what you love and what is functional — for example a small dish for storing car keys and sunglasses — and remove the rest. Group many small objects in a jar or bowl. Elevate small objects on a stack of two or three books to give it a purposeful look.

Nothing is worse than having your medicine cabinet so packed that everything falls out as soon as you take out your moisturizer, or applying makeup in your bathroom just to find out upon walking out that you’ve caked on too much foundation due to poor lighting. Thankfully we have interior designers who make it their life mission to be a resource for everything there is to know about bathrooms. Are you making these bathroom decorating mistakes? Find out from the best, and learn their clever solutions.

Sometimes rules are made to be broken. Here are a few things you might consider decorating mistakes, but are actually completely acceptable!

The designers at Massucco Warner Miller suggested getting creative with storage solutions: “Even if you don’t have room for a vanity with serious storage, it doesn’t mean you can’t sneak in some extra space elsewhere with a vintage apothecary cabinet, a train rack, or even recessed medicine cabinets for keeping toiletries out of sight. A clean and uncluttered bathroom is always better looking. The more you can get put away, the better!”

Roth pointed out how messy designs can become when going crazy with finishes and patterns: “My theory is that in most circumstances, more than two finishes in a bathroom can look odd. Try to flow the materials in a digestible way—keep all the floor materials the same and change up the walls. If you want a statement pattern or color, use it on the floors or tile the inside of a recessed shelf instead of putting it everywhere.”

Avoid These 5 Decorating Mistakes That Make Your Home Look Messy!

For the designers at Massucco Warner Miller, the importance is to install lighting that suits your needs: “Think through the lighting to make sure it suits your needs. If you love applying meticulous makeup, it’s helpful to add sconces or even a chic lit magnifying mirror. Or if you favor soothing baths, dimmable ceiling lights to create a relaxing mood would be a great choice.”

Decorating is so fun, but sometimes it’s easy to go overboard. Too much decorating, or the wrong kind of decorating, can make your house look more like a monster than a model home. I’ve gathered some tips & ticks to help fix decorating mistakes that make your house look messy. If you follow these pieces of advice, your house will look lovely without looking overwhelming. Good Luck!

Placing too many accent pillows on a sofa or bed will instantly create a haphazard and untidy look. This living room looks pulled together and well-decorated because the sofa isn’t laden with numerous decorative pillows. Two accent pillows on each end of the sofa is the perfect amount to decorate this room with beautiful color and pattern.

“People forget that bathrooms can have personality just like any other room in your house,” the designers at Massucco Warner Miller told us. The fix: “Add a fun and unexpected light fixture, chic art, or even wallpaper! Bathrooms are typically smaller spaces, so it doesn’t take much to really spice them up and make them cohesive with the décor of the rest of the house.”

Lastly, the designers at Studio Life.Style warned against the use of wallpaper: “We can all agree that adding wallpaper to any bathroom can immediately warm up a space. We love using wallpaper in all the bathrooms we design, but the biggest thing we always keep in mind is that the wallpaper needs to either be made for bathrooms (like a vinyl, for example), or the backsplash needs to be high enough so that the wallpaper won’t get damaged.”

Decorating with too many colors is guaranteed to make a home look cluttered and messy. Use one or two hues combined with neutral colors to give your home a cohesive, relaxed look. This living room has been decorated with various shades of blue to create a gorgeous, cohesive space. The neutral-color walls, rug, window coverings, and furnishings allow the room to breathe as well as make the room look more spacious and open.

The designers at Studio Life.Style suggested focusing on the vanity: “Make sure to either custom make or purchase a vanity that has plenty of storage to hold things like your hair dryer and makeup. Also, make sure you have plenty of counter space if that’s something you like.”

Laguna Beach–based designer Ohara Davies-Gaetano insisted on the importance of towel storage: “Make sure that you have allocated space to keep fresh towels. I like keeping bath towels in an antique armoire in our bathroom and washcloths rolled up in a pewter bowl on our vanity so I have a fresh one daily. I always suggest having a few robe hooks placed around the bathroom instead of towel bars—this allows you to have a place to dry multiple towels or robes.”

Pictures and wall art hung in haphazard fashion across a wall will make a room look chaotic. Group pictures in a gallery wall arrangement; the space will instantly look organized and balanced. The art hung above the headboard in this bedroom, demonstrates how several pieces can be hung to create a visually pleasing and curated look.

Every single designer agreed on one major mistake: not having enough storage. “You absolutely need as much storage as possible to ensure that your bathroom stays the most functional and uncluttered space,” says interior designer Tali Roth. “Medicine cabinets, although often harder to find attractive ones, are so, so useful for storing all those small items for everyday use. If you’re building from scratch, explore recessed wall cabinets and recessed shower shelves—they are clean and oh so useful!”
