Bathroom Decorating Ideas 5 Ways To Make Any Bathroom Feel More

1. Enclose it Part of the joy of a spa is that ability to take a break from life — to step away from the stresses and just focus on you. So consider a way to create a barrier between you, your bathroom and the rest of the world. It could be an extra lovely/dramatic shower curtain. It could be a curtain that you place over the door for an extra barrier. It could be big plants that partially obscure the rest of your bathroom from say, your tub. Get creative to think of a way you can enclose yourself to feel protected and a little bit transported.

Maybe it’s a piece of art in your shower (or something more practical). Maybe it’s a giant mirror in a weird spot. Perhaps it’s just a bouquet of flowers on the edge of your tub. Just add something that will surprise you and perhaps transport you to a feeling of relaxation.

Pitched ceilings in the bathroom of this tiny Florida cottage made a standard-height shower a no-go, so the owner chose a deep cast-iron bathtub instead. To keep costs down, she purchased a dilapidated tub for $100 at a junkyard and then had it refinished.

Bathroom Decorating Ideas: 5 Ways to Make Any Bathroom Feel More Spa-Like

When you’re ready to leave your spa-like bathroom, take that relaxation with you by surrounding yourself with softness. Make sure you step onto a plush bath mat or into fluffy slippers. Towel off from a bath or shower with an extra cozy towel. Wrap yourself in a robe.

Cast-iron fixtures like this salvaged sink add a feeling of vintage elegance to any bathroom—especially when paired with nickel-finished hardware. 

Instead of hiding a so-called eyesore, the owner of this Texas home played up a rusted corrugated metal wall by forgoing colorful accents, short of one lone-starred towel.

Turns out our gravitation toward wainscoting is biological. “The human eye is wired to scan for the horizon,” explains Freya Van Saun, professor of decorative arts at the New York School of Interior Design. “Rooms dating to ancient Rome can be found with millwork defining the midline.”

Antique sconces, canvas shower curtains, and a vintage copper sink basin bring a sense of history to the master bathroom in this New York farmhouse.

A 1920s claw-foot tub found on Craigslist is the centerpiece of the bathroom in this Arizona ranch home. Black porcelain floor tile, laid in a herringbone pattern, adds an unexpected edge.

While renovating this Tennessee farmhouse, Country Living style director Page Mullins and singer-songwriter Holly Williams carved out more space by enlarging the window and elongating the shower, installing a custom vanity, and adding a cabinet for storage. They also piled on the pattern, mixing green toile wallpaper with a graphic black-and-white tile. 

New brass faucets turned this farm sink into a stylish wash station in this Arizona ranch home.

As you can imagine, bath salts, yummy-smelling soaps and other treats for your body are a great way to treat yourself to a spa day. But don’t just line them up unceremoniously on your bathroom counter.

Think about the presentation. Put products in lovely containers you like handling. If you have a tub, consider splurging on a lovely-to-you bathtub caddy that you can slip into a warm bath under.

The owners of this charming California bungalow replaced the master bathroom door with a toile curtain to improve traffic flow in the cramped space.

With a whopping seven windows, the master bathroom of this California Wine Country home presented a serious design challenge: the homeowner didn’t want to hang blinds because of the light and the stunning views, but with a guest cottage located just north of the bathroom, they needed some privacy. The ingenious solution: Suspend West Elm mirrors from the ceiling with pulleys (purchased from a hardware store and spray-painted black) and thick sisal rope (also from a hardware store).

Burlap-upholstered closet doors, brass hardware, butcher-block counters, and a leather-wrapped mirror anchor create an airy space with rich, warm materials in this Georgia log cabin.

This once-dreary bathroom is now a highlight of the renovated 1950’s fishing shack, thanks to its rustic accent wall. The mosaic mimics the look of stacked firewood and engages viewers with its bold type and surprising placement.

Start with neutralizing the things that might stress you out first. Loud noises from construction down the street or neighbors? Include white noise or soothing music to cover up sounds you don’t want. Hate the overhead light in your windowless bathroom? Bring in candles.

An eye-catching “Antiques” sign adds age in the bathroom of this colorful Texas home.
