Take a look at your bathroom and ask what you would like to change about it most. Maybe, all it needs is a color transformation or an updated vanity. Either way, it’s always a good idea to access what you want to change and why. With a clear plan of action, you can begin the process of your bathroom transformation.

Below, you’ll discover some beautiful bathroom decorating ideas. And hopefully, you’ll find inspiration to begin your bathroom transformation as well.

1 – Adding Pops Of Green

When it comes to affordable bathroom decor ideas, an easy, inexpensive idea is by adding plants and pops of great. We love the way this homeowner added air plants to the wall decor.

They also added pops of green to the top of the vanity and wall ledge. It’s the perfect way to add beautiful bathroom decor without having to spend a fortune. They also added various geometric shapes that pull your eyes up and around the room.

Try adding artificial succulent plants to your bathroom. You’ll see wonderful pops of green and at affordable prices too. Plus, they add depth and dimension to your bathroom, and because they don’t require much maintenance, they offer an easy upgrade idea.

2 – Adding The Perfect Area Rug

It’s so important finding the perfect area rug when it comes to decorating your bathroom. It really seals the deal in terms of design elements and pulls everything together. In the bathroom below, the rug they used fits perfectly into the medium-sized bath. 

Don’t be afraid to add color to your bathroom with area rugs, either. You can choose a complimentary color or try adding a bold pop of color instead. If you want to play it safe, you can always choose a neutral or go with this stunning 2-piece bathroom set in gray.

3 – Create An Illusion With Glass

It doesn’t matter what size your bathroom is. Using glass elements is the perfect way to make your bathroom look and feel larger and create an elegant decor statement. Adding mirrors will not only make your bathroom appear larger but add more light to it as well.

Also, don’t feel stuck decorating with the same style. Instead, branch out and try adding statement pieces instead. For example, these baroque-style framed mirrors will be the focal point of your bathroom. Now, you can have both function and style by easily adding a set of mirrors!

Alternatively, you can add a Wall Mounted LED Bathroom Mirror instead. If you want a more modern look and add copious amounts of light to your bathroom, this is the way to go!

 4 – Use Lighting As A Decor Element

Often forgotten, bathroom lighting is a key element when searching for bathroom decorating ideas.  Try adding an LED Strip Lighting Kit to the bottom of your bathroom mirrors! What a great idea, and it’s a DIY project you can easily do yourself! 

5 – Paint Your Bathroom Vanity

You can easily transform your bathroom vanity with a can of paint! Often, the transformation is all you need to perk up your space. Plus, it’s a much more affordable option too.

White paint is always a safe choice but adding pops of color to your bathroom decor is always fun and exciting too. If you love a white vanity, try using White Linen Chalk Paint by Rust-oleum. The coverage is spectacular, and it will brighten your bathroom too.

If you love pops of color, try Rust-oleum Serenity Blue or even Farmhouse Red instead. Its low-odor, latex formula allows for easy clean-up with soap & water and is perfect for any furniture makeover. It also dries to an ultra-matte velvety, smooth finish.

6 – Bathroom Wall Decor

Don’t just hang a picture on your bathroom walls when you can kick it up a notch and do something different. Try decorating with unique decors like wall sconces or floating shelves instead. When it comes to bathroom decorating ideas, wall decor always makes an affordable option.

You can see how adding wall sconces adds a visual element other than typical wall art. And they create depth and dimension to any size bathroom as well. The decorative white wall sconce appears three-dimensional and makes a beautiful focal point as well. It features a beautiful antique finish and is easy to install.

7 – Adding Decorative Towels

We take bathroom towels for granted when it comes to our bathrooms. I see so many folks just placing one over a towel bar, and that’s it!  Many of us don’t realize they are in and of themselves decor elements and, we can use them to decorate our bathrooms as well.

Instead, try adding some luxury hand towels and pair them in complementary colors. Also, add wicker decorative baskets to your bathroom and roll up towels to create a hotel spa experience. Doing so will transform your bathroom into a luxury experience and affordably.

When it comes to bathroom decorating ideas, adding lux towels and wicker baskets will instantly transform your space. And there’s no heavy lifting required!

8 – Add A Decor Element You Would Never Think Of Using

When it comes to bathroom decor ideas, think outside the box and try something unique. Whether you like to play it safe or not, adding a unique element to your bathroom will perk things up instantly.

For example, would you ever think of displaying a beautiful wall clock in your bathroom? Maybe not, but what an exciting way to create a focal point! And don’t choose any wall clock but rather something that makes a statement!

And look at those tubs!  Or you can add a stunning whirlpool tub and transform your bathroom instantly. These types of tubs are often referred to by the brand name “Jacuzzi bathtubs” as well. We are making plans to redo two of our three bathrooms, and I can’t wait to see if they make a good option.

 9 – Bathroom Pulls And Knobs

Upgrading your bathroom hardware can transform your space instantly. It’s easy to do and budget-friendly. If you can’t afford to replace your bathroom vanity, try upgrading the hardware. For instance, these Southern Hills Brushed Nickel Drawer Pulls make an attractive option and easy to install.

In the image below, you can see a beautiful bathroom vanity transformation. Why replace your vanity when a can of black paint and some stunning bathroom pulls can do it for you?

10 – Shower Caddy Transformations

Here’s an easy way to update your bathroom. Don’t throw out your old shower caddy – paint it instead! Now, you can finally ditch the rusty old shower caddy and transform it in minutes. Plus, you can change the color anytime and easily! If you enjoy DIY crafting projects, or even if you don’t, this is one transformation your bathroom and wallet will love!
