Decorating does wonders for the mind and soul. Sometimes just seeing the decorations that you put time and effort into is just what you need to turn your day around. Why limit it to just the front of your house? You spend most of the time inside, so why not add the flavor of the season indoors for you and your guests to enjoy?
It can be hard to know where to start if you haven’t taken on projects like this before. That’s probably why you’re online looking for some ideas! Well, let’s not wait around anymore, Spring has sprung and it’s time to give your bathroom that touch of warmth and growth as well.
Where To Start?
Check the condition of your bathroom first. If your spring cleaning hasn’t hit your bathroom yet, then it may be time to start scrubbing. Also, be sure to check if everything is working correctly, or if it’s starting to wear down. Maybe it’s time to fix that squealing sound your showerhead makes? Regardless, if you don’t regularly keep up with cleaning and maintaining your bathroom, then your decorations become a fresh coat of paint on a broken car.
I know it might be hard to get into or seem like way too much to handle right now, but trust us– you got this! Start to separate certain parts of the bathroom into sections such as bath, shower, counters, floor, lights, mirror. This way you will know where to start, and you can take them on one at a time. Starting here is an important step because it sets the foundation for future decorating.
How Can You Get Creative?
Take some time, and start to create a vision board for what you’d like your bathroom to look like. Get some magazines, or if you prefer to make a Pinterest board, and start collecting ideas that speak to you. Take some time before you do this step to clear your head the best way you know how. This could be meditation, mindful walking, talking, exercising, napping, stretching, etc. Whatever works best for you so that you can get into your creative space.
Step 1. Explore Your Home
Now that you have a better picture of the vision for your bathroom it’s time to explore your home for creative ways to start turning your bathroom into a Spring Explosion. Since some of the items you discovered might be outside your price range, you need to come up with some creative ways to make it at your home. Search your home for anything you can use, and make this step FUN! It’s crafting time, so why make it boring?
Step 2. Time To Shop
Anything you could not craft at home you’ll need to buy. Go as affordable as you can. Unless you want to go for luxury, then be our guest! This is also another place of discovery. You might find some new ideas you never thought about before. Be open to your ideas changing, because that’s just a part of the creative process.
Step 3. Create The Room
This is the hardest but most fun step (if you let it be!) of decorating your bathroom. You might run into corners and feel creatively drained, but just do what you need to do to clear your head and get back to it! This is where everything comes together. If you persist, then eventually you’ll have something close, if not better, than what you previously envisioned.
Step 4. Enjoy The Room

It’s work you put into creating something new. You have the power to change whatever you like, and you know it’s possible because you did it before!
