Does your home need an upgrade, but you’re just not sure which room to tackle first? For a small project, a great place to start is your bathroom.
For the most part, bathrooms all look the same. Sure, there are some things that set one apart from another, but there’s only so much individual quality a new color palette can give you.
If you’re looking for a few ideas for how to make your room pop, here are 7 of our best cool bathroom ideas for you to try!
While we wouldn’t go so far as to consider replacing your bathroom mirror with chalkboard, why not consider chalkboard paint on one of the walls in your bathroom?
You could use that area to write inspirational quotes around your decorations or even custom draw a cute frame around your mirror. The options for chalkboard paint only ends when your imagination does.
The bathroom can be one of the most overlooked places that you can brighten up with plants. There are so many plants that thrive well in warm, humid places, making your bathroom a great place to get started working on your green thumb. This is a great idea for a San Diego bathroom remodel!
Counter space in bathrooms is often limited, so try hanging plants from hooks in the ceiling or from baskets off the wall.
Your bathroom might not be the first place you think of when you think about glamour and style, but adding a chandelier can be the perfect way to add a huge pop of flair to reflect your personality.
If you want to make your bathroom a luxurious place of relaxation full of feelings of wealth and lavish living, a chandelier is perfect for you.
4. Add Windows
A windowless bathroom can feel cramped and stuffy and the complete absence of natural light can be depressing.
Even if your bathroom walls don’t go to the outside, consider adding a row of windows along one wall near the ceiling. This gives the room an open, elegant feel. It’s also quite unique.
Doing this in a studio apartment where the only windows are in the main space gives you a chance to get that much needed natural light in your bathroom.
5. The Power of Paint
There is so much you can do when you really sit down and think about the different ways to use colors to your advantage.
Do you have a radiator in your bathroom? Paint it with your accent color, giving your bathroom a fun pop.
One of the quickest ways to give your bathroom a fresh look is to paint the outside of a freestanding tub with your accent color. You can see this trend throughout different home design magazines. This is a great way to include more color and throw your personality into the room.
And while we know that you’ve heard that painting a room white makes it feel bigger, consider white’s counterpart as well. Painting walls black with white fixtures can give a room an elegant, high-class feel.
If you have cubby holes in your bathroom, paint the insides! One solid color is great for a more classy feel, but if your bathroom is for kids, go nuts!
6. Loads of Art
Don’t be afraid to hang loads of art on your walls. Sure, you will have to clean the frames and switch them out from time to time to prevent any issues, but this is totally worth it to get the finished effect. A beautiful picture mural on a bathroom wall can be the perfect centerpiece and make your bathroom the room you want to relax in at the end of the day.
Instead of just one single mirror, consider putting multiple mirrors in fun shapes all along one wall of your bathroom. It would be easy to overdo this by putting mirrors on all of the walls, but by limiting yourself to the one you can create a much larger feeling space.
If you’re interested in tiling your bathroom, consider adding a fun pattern, words, or cute design in as you place them down. This can be anything from a sweet message to pixelated pictures of your favorite characters if it strikes your fancy.
If you’re hoping for a less permanent change, interchangeable decals can be the perfect thing to brighten up a room. Add them to your windows, walls, or even glass shower enclosure for a fun feel.
7. Add Storage
There’s nothing we crave more in our homes than more places to put our stuff. But for some reason, the bathroom is always off limits for that. There are a bunch of ways you can add storage space to your bathroom to make sure that all of your stuff has a place and stays there.
If you’re going for an effortless feel, stack wooden crates on top of each other on their sides. Use those as cubby holes to put your towels, makeup, cotton balls, or extra TP. Because these things are out in the open, make sure it’s your prettiest stuff that you’re storing in there.
Consider adding floor-to-ceiling shelving on one wall of your bathroom. While you probably won’t want to store your shoes or handbags in such a high-humidity environment, these can be great places to store other things. Extra towels and sheets would be right at home here if your room was ventilated enough.
