How To Decorate Your Bathroom For Spring

by jon |April 25, 2019 |2 Comments | Blogs, Decoration | , , , ,

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

Sometimes in life, we forget to stop and smell the roses, maybe you’ll actually have roses in your bathroom. Really stop and appreciate what you created no matter your feelings about it. 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!

What If You Want An Expert?

Well, if you don’t have the time, know-how, or desire to do those steps, then there are some short-cuts in this process. Maybe you’re just completely tired of the bathroom you have now and want something totally new and unique right now. Columbus Bath Design is a brilliant place if you’re looking for a professional who will help you create a gorgeous bathroom.

Decorating Your Bathroom for Thanksgiving

by Columbus Bath Design |November 9, 2018 |0 Comments | Uncategorized | , , , , , , , , ,

With fall in full swing, it’s time to start decorating your home for the season if you haven’t already. Bathrooms are an area of the home that some people overlook in regards to decoration. Even if your bathroom is small, you can still incorporate festive decorations into your space. You can add a few simple touches or go for an all-out Thanksgiving theme in your bathroom. Here are our decorating tips to get ready for the season:

Hand Towels

One of the simplest ways to decorate your bathroom for Thanksgiving is seasonal towels and washcloths. You can purchase Thanksgiving-themed bathroom décor almost anywhere. Choose linens decorated with things like turkeys, pilgrims, leaves, and cornucopias. For a more subtle look, simply replace your current towels with new orange, yellow, and red ones to fit the color scheme of fall.

If your bathroom has a window, find new curtains that coordinate with your new towels and linens. This will ensure that your color scheme is cohesive and that everything goes well together.

Candles, Candles, Candles

Another great idea is to place seasonally-scented candles, such as pumpkin or spiced apple, in your bathroom. You can light them every day or just for special occasions or when guests are over. Smells and scents can remind people of holidays past and build a festive ambiance.  To take things a step further, invest in candles that crackle and make bonfire-like noises to give your bathroom a cozy feel.

If you don’t want to invest in candles or are looking for something a little more outside the box, incense is also a great way to give your space a comforting smell. To avoid flames entirely, invest in a seasonal plug-ing. This will provide consistent bursts of scent throughout the day and you won’t have to worry about blowing anything out before you leave.

Soaps and other Scents

Seasonal hand-soaps are another fun way to decorate your bathroom. Try to “shop local” when it comes to this part of decorating. Finding cute boutiques and small vendors near your home will ensure that your soaps are unique and hand-made, giving your bathroom a warm and welcoming feel. Add a decorative soap dish and make this a focal point of fall display for your bathroom.

For an added bonus, find a nice fall themed lotion to put next to your sink as well. This time of the year is the perfect storm for dry skin and cracked hands. Help your guests out with a nice, soothing lotion.

Lighting

The lighting in your bathroom can also be changed for the holiday. You can purchase a seasonal night light for a small touch. For a more bold change, you can swap out the light bulbs in your bathroom to a soft orange. You can also put up string lights around your bathroom mirror. Choose from orange lights or ones that are shaped like pumpkins or turkeys. Another lighting idea is to place lanterns with either real or electric candles in them. Place a string of fall leaves and small pumpkins and gourds around the base to make it more fall appropriate.

Pumpkins and Gourds

One of the absolute easiest ways to decorate any space for the Thanksgiving and fall season is to stack up on pumpkins and gourds. You can choose varying colors, shapes, and sizes and arrange them in a fun fall display. For an extra fun touch, tie orange and gold ribbons around their stems. Pumpkins and gourds are cheap decor and will give your space an authentic feel.

More Decoration Ideas

There are many other simple touches you can add to your bathroom to decorate for Thanksgiving. Swap out any wall hangings you have for wall art featuring fall leaves, turkeys, pumpkins, and other harvest-related items.

If you have enough shelf or counter space, you can choose any of these super simple DIY projects:

  •       Fill a vase or urn with dried or artificial flowers such as sunflowers or mums. You will want to stick with a red, yellow, orange, brown, or deep purple palette. You can include small cornstalks or even cattails to help add dimension to your arrangement.
  •       Fill a glass vase or other type of container with pinecones.
  •       Fill a basket with pumpkins, gourds, and small cornstalks.
  •       Hang a welcome sign on the outside of your bathroom door that has a Thanksgiving theme.
  •       Hang doorknob decorations on the outside or inside of your bathroom door. Some decorations have bells inside them for extra effect.

When it comes to decorating your home for the holidays, don’t forget about your bathroom! All of these ideas are quick and easy but can make your bathroom feel fun, cozy, and welcoming for all of your guests and loved ones. And as always, if you need help or tips with your bathroom accessories or are looking for a whole new remodel, don’t hesitate to contact the experts at Columbus Bath Design!

When it comes to Halloween, you want to pull out all of the stops and make your home as spooky and festive as possible. When hosting for the holiday, don’t forget to decorate your bathroom! Here are our favorite tips to make your bathroom extra scary this October:

Change up the Lighting

Swapping your old lightbulb for a creepy orange or green one can change the entire vibe of the room. Dimming your lights or adding strands of lights shaped like leaves and pumpkins can also add to the ambiance. Adding creepy candles can also give your space a “haunted mansion” type feel.

Switch out Your Accessories

Add decorations wherever you can. Swap out the soap dispenser, add a blood-spattered bath mat and throw plastic spiders all over the place. Invest in Halloween themed linens and signs to hang around. The more festive you can be, the better.

Don’t Forget a Spooky Scent

Investing in a pumpkin scented candle or bathroom spray can make your space feel incredibly festive. Find a scent that screams “fall”. Pumpkin, pine, and apple all help contribute to the ambiance.

Make it Gord-geous

Another fun way to bring Halloween decor into your bathroom is by adding pumpkins and gourds. Placing these around your sink, on your window sills, and on the back of your toilet brings a fresh new look to your space. Buy varying sizes to mix things up and arrange them into fun patterns to give your space some easy flair.

Spiders and Webs

One of the easiest (and creepiest) decorations that you can add are fake spider webs and plastic spiders. These are easy to place and to clean up and can be used again and again year after year. Add fake webs to the corners of your room and all around the windows and then sprinkle fake spiders all around.

There are plenty of fun ways to make your bathroom spooky this Halloween season. Get creative and find some DIY crafts to spruce up your space. Your guests will love the festive feel of your home and you’ll go down as the hostess with the mostest.

 

How to Decorate for Fall

by Columbus Bath Design |September 18, 2017 |0 Comments | Tips for the Home | , , , , , , , , , ,

The changing season brings the opportunity to do fresh decorating and staging throughout the rooms in your home. Put away the summer decor of bright colors and seashells, and bring on the rich tones of crispy leaves and pumpkins. The autumn is the perfect time to add warm colors and create a cozy, rustic feeling in every room. Fall is a season that calls for decor that incorporates natural elements like leaves, pumpkins, pine cones, and gourds.

Harvest Decor

Pumpkins are an essential part of fall decor. You can use fake or real pumpkins of varying sizes and colors, both inside and outside of the home. Use them on tablescapes, mantel displays, and on the front porch. A simple, yet creative display of pumpkins can make a statement in the front of a home, whether it’s on a porch, steps, or simply situated next to the entryway. Gourds, bales of hay, and cornstalks are other harvest features that can be used for decorating.

Colorful Leaves

Nature’s main feature for fall is the changing colors of the leaves. You don’t have to be outdoors to enjoy the colors. Use real or fake leaves in deep reds, oranges, yellows, and browns to create simple accents throughout the home. You can also make a wreath with leaves, acorns, and pine cones to display the natural beauty of the fall season right on your front door.

Keep It Cozy

Fall is a great time to bring out your warm flannel throw blankets and add them to the sofa and chairs in the living area. Consider changing out accent pillow covers for more seasonal styles that have warm tones, rich colors, or plaid designs. Aim to create a cozy, warm, and inviting atmosphere in every room of your home. The right fall decor pieces will be able to transition seamlessly into your design throughout November.

Get organized

Since spring is the ideal season for doing a deep cleaning and getting organized around the house, use the opportunity to tidy up your bathroom.

Simple, small baskets make for lovely decor, and they’re perfect for storing hand towels, wash clothes, and toiletries.
