How To Refresh Your Bathroom Decor On A Budget

We’re looking out over the horizon of winter, which is the perfect time for a home refresh. You need only a few things here and there to brighten your every day (see: hygge), and the bathroom is the ideal place to start since it’s a small, manageable space and won’t cost a fortune. The six main elements to consider: shower curtain, bath mat, hardware (hooks, rods and shelves), storage (for towels and bits and bobs), accessories (soap dishes, dispensers and toothbrush holders) and decor (art, plants, candles and more). The beauty of the project? Even the smallest change makes a big impact. Here, choose your style and find some major inspiration.

Bathroom Decor Refresh

Bohemian Beauty

Instantly transport yourself to an easy, breezy summer day with these boho vibes (think lots of ivory and wicker with touches of macramé and crochet—and maybe even some Morocco-inspired bronze details sprinkled throughout). You can practically smell the salt air just around the corner.

Gilded Glam

For the glamour girl in all of us, go for a dose of Hollywood regency with luxe metallics and textures—lots of gold, faux fur and mirrored or glass details. There's nothing wrong with feeling like you just arrived home from the red carpet.

Pink Lady

For anyone who wants to feel like a true lady, a few modern but feminine touches go a long way. To avoid skewing too girly, focus on blush pinks over bubblegum, lots of white, a shot of florals and some vintage-inspired pieces.

Whimsical Minimalist

For those who prefer things black and white but not boring, clean lines with pops of personality are the way to go. Stripes or a grid pattern are an easy and classic way to set the tone. Add in a fun bath mat and some accessories for a bit of playful texture. Minimalist elements are timeless, and switching up the whimsical features to set the mood is easily done between seasons.
