I love getting inspiration for decorating, don’t you? We are planning to remodel two of our three baths and of course, I had to do a lot of research and gather some inspiring ideas.

Of course, I love sharing them with you too! Below, you’ll find some minor tweaks and some that require a bit more work. Either way, I hope you are inspired too! 

1 – Adding some green to your bathroom is an easy, inexpensive, and perfect way to add color while adding a level of chic to your bathroom. I 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.

I fell in love with these artificial succulent plants – they fit perfectly on top of my vanity and didn’t break the budget either. I used another decor element to create a multi-level look to add some depth and dimension.

 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 seems to pull everything together. In the bathroom below, the rug they used fits perfectly into the medium-sized bath. 
Since two of three of my baths are medium-sized, it was so important for me to find the right size area rug. I was thrilled with the one I found and since I change them at least once or twice a year, I had to be sure I got a great deal on them as well. I was thrilled to find the two area rugs that fit our baths perfectly. I love the pops of color too!

3 –  Give an Illusion With Glass – It doesn’t matter what size your bathroom is, using glass elements are the perfect way to make your bathroom look and feel larger and create an elegant decor statement. 
I love this large and simply stunning vanity mirror in this bathroom and how they added another mirror off to the side for an additional accent. 
Last year, I added several mirrors to one of my bathrooms, and I’m thrilled with the results. I especially love this large framed rectangular mirror!

4 – Use Lighting As A Decor Element – Often forgotten, bathroom lighting is a key element when searching for bathroom decorating ideas.  I was recently inspired by this photo below to add this LED Strip Lighting Kit to the bottom of my bathroom mirrors! What a great idea and it’s a DIY project you can easily do yourself! 
5 – Paint Your Bathroom Vanity – It’s always a stunning transformation when you see an old bathroom vanity painted. White paint is always a safe choice but adding pops of color to your bathroom decor is always fun and exciting too. I am so in love with this White Linen Chalk Paint by Rust-oleum.
I used it recently when I painted my bathroom medicine cabinets, and I was thrilled with the results. It’s 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
I’m hooked! 
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. When we decided to wallpaper our half-bath this year, I elected to use some decorative wall sconces to add depth and some interesting elements to the bathroom. 
In the image below, you can see how added wall sconces help to create various textures and depth to the walls. Here’s a link to the White Wall Sconce on the right. 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!  A lot of us don’t realize they are in and of themselves decor elements and, we need to think of decorating with them in that same light. 
I love using my Luxury hand towels, and I have fun changing things up when it comes to mixing colors and patterns.

8 – Add A Decor Element You Would Never Have Thought Using – I like to kick things up a bit and take risks when it comes to decorating. Some folks like to play it safe – either way is fine! Many of us would never think of hanging a beautiful wall clock to our bathroom walls, but I just adore it! 
And look at those tubs! I love unique bathtubs and I have a particular tub I’m currently researching. My dream is to own a whirlpool tub for both of my main bathrooms. 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 can be an option for us.
We want to install a shower stall and have a separate tub too. If you are planning to redo your bath and want to add a tub like these, be sure to research carefully and make sure the fit and pricing are perfect for your needs. I’ll update this article when our renovations are completed! 
I love this Stonebriar Old Fashioned 14 Inch Round Wood Hanging Wall Clock. How many times have you been in the bath and wondered what time it was? Now, you can take the guesswork out and have an interesting decor element to look at while relaxing in the tub. 
 9 – Bathroom Pulls and Knobs – Changing your bathroom hardware can literally transform your space. It’s easy to do and within anyone’s budget. Changing up your hardware anywhere in your home is a guaranteed hit.
I know we’re talking bathrooms here but, I recently replaced all my kitchen hardware and wow – take a look for yourself. I’m loving it! 
I’m in love with these cabinet pulls – they would be my first choice when replacing.  Satin & Brushed Nickel always looks chic weather in your kitchen or bathroom.

10 – Shower Caddy’s There Not Just For Storing Stuff – Every since I discovered that I can easily transform my shower caddy, I’ve been hooked. Anything inside your bathroom can be repurposed and reinvented to be a decorative item so why not the shower caddy? 

Feeling fickle? Change the color whenever the mood takes you! I was in a gold mood when I transformed mine. I think I’ll go red next time! I love this particular shower caddy because it has lots of shelf space and room for just about everything. It’s not too bad on the eyes either! because it has lots of shelf space and room for just about everything. It’s not too bad on the eyes either!
