Guest Post: 8 Ways to Rejuvenate Your Bathroom

I'm getting a break from the blog today and letting Amber from The Vanity Room take over. She's got some great tips for freshening up your bathroom and making it a more pleasant room to be in. (I read somewhere that women will spend something like 2 years of their life in the bathroom...so make it pretty!) I'm hoping to use this blogging break to finish painting my kids' play table and chairs- off to the garage! Take it away Amber! :) 

The bathroom is often the smallest room in our home, but very intimate and important. Sometimes in large families, it is the only place where we can hear ourselves think. That is why we should decorate this part of our house with great care and attention to detail. There are many ways to make one's bathroom more personal, private, or simply rejuvenated, and they don't always have to be costly.


This is the simplest trick in the book and works miracles. It's enough to place some flower pots or vases on your bathroom storage cabinet or next to the sink.


Colors have the power to transform. Whether you want a modern black-and-white design, a peaceful mint green, or wacky different-colored tiles on your walls and floor, it will completely transform your bathroom. You can also paint the tub surround some fancy color, like hot pink or bright orange.


     Interesting mirrors

Here's a detail that doesn't have to be costly and can be very attention-grabbing. You can either buy some antique-looking mirror at a yard sale, or you can make one yourself, gluing beach shells or similar pieces to your mirror.

   Shower curtains

This is another example of a very frugal bathroom decoration idea. You just need to pick a really interesting curtain pattern.

   Vintage cabinets

Storage cabinets and dressers make up a large portion of your bathroom, so make them funky. Vintage decoration is very popular nowadays and you can DIY almost any wooden objects following online tutorials.

   Unusual towel holder

If you like vintage, how about placing an old ladder in your bathroom and use it as a towel holder?

   Laminate flooring

If you want to do something different with your bathroom floor, consider laminate flooring that will give your bathroom a nice ship deck look. As fall is here, to make your cold mornings more warm and cozy go for under floor heating. 


Crates stacked up to serve as a storage cabinet can store lots of items and be a very hip, unconventional bathroom unit.

  1. Excellent tips Amber! Thanks!

  2. I feel like the bathrooms are always the last places I decorate. Def need to fix that in my next home.

    1. I am the same way! I always focus on the main areas first and my bathrooms get kind of neglected. I need to work on that too!

  3. Changing the bathroom mirror is probably one of the best things one can do for an upgrade

    1. I agree! The mirror really makes a huge difference.

  4. Changing the mirror is one of the easiest ways to up-grade the look...You have some great ideas!
