20 Easy Bathroom Decor Ideas to Update Your Bathroom

With spring fast approaching, it’s a great time to start thinking about updating your bathroom – one of the easiest rooms in the house to update! It’s a small space so you can be more daring when it comes to bold interior spaces knowing it’s not where you spend a ton of time. After combing through Pinterest, here are fourteen of the most inspiring ways we’ve found to update your bathroom.

Change the Color Scheme

Repaint the walls or add a fresh coat of paint to breathe new life into the space. Consider using soothing or vibrant colors depending on the mood you want to create.

Hang a New Chandelier

This chandelier really makes the room in my opinion. It’s perfectly framed by white curtains and adds a touch of glamor to this space.

Update the Fixtures

Replace old faucets, showerheads, towel bars, and drawer pulls with modern or stylish alternatives. Choose finishes that complement the overall aesthetic you desire.

Patterned Bathroom Wallpaper

Wallpaper is one of the easiest ways to update your bathroom. Go for a patterned paper to make the boldest change.

Hardwood Floors

People have a tendency to either cover up bathroom floors with a rug or put down hard tiles. I love that this floor remains naturally exposed. It’s an unexpected bathroom design element!

Upgrade Lighting

Install new light fixtures or update existing ones to improve the lighting in your bathroom. Consider adding task lighting around the vanity area and installing dimmers for an adjustable ambiance.

Oriental Rug

Tired of those terrycloth rugs everyone puts in their bathroom? Us too! Try a dark and contrasting oriental one.

Statement Mirror

Choose a large, decorative mirror or one with an interesting shape to serve as a focal point in the bathroom. A well-placed mirror can also make the space appear larger.

Black Grout

Black grout is really having a moment. Instead of going with a boring white grout, use a striking dark one!

Fresh Accessories

Replace worn-out or mismatched bathroom accessories such as soap dispensers, toothbrush holders, and shower curtains. Choose cohesive sets or mix and match to add personality and style.

Half-Tone Walls

Half-tone walls are trendy in bathrooms these days. They’re a great way to inject some color into a bathroom without completely changing the look!

More Storage Solutions

Declutter the bathroom by adding shelves, cabinets, or baskets to store towels, toiletries, and other essentials. There are tons of bathroom storage ideas out there to keep your bathroom organized so you can find what you need at the right time. Optimize space utilization while keeping it visually appealing.

Gray Accent Wall

Accent walls look great in bathrooms, especially when they serve as a backdrop for a freestanding bathtub! Because this wall has a large window, this gray tile accent wall is actually very subtle.

Greenery and Plants

Place indoor plants that thrive in bathroom conditions, such as ferns, orchids, or spider plants. They not only add a touch of nature but also improve air quality.

Monochrome Bathroom

Bathrooms are the perfect place for a monochrome interior because they are so small that it doesn’t feel too overwhelming to use one color.
