When doing your holiday decorating at home, don’t forget about the bathroom decor. There are many fun, festive, and easy ways to dress up this space for the holiday season. A few simple touches can transform it into a cheerful spot. Here are some ideas for decorating your bathroom for the holidays:
A very easy way to bring the spirit of the season to the bathroom is by changing out the linens, rug, and shower curtain. Choose holiday prints and patterns for hand towels and bath towels. There are many design options to select from for shower curtains, as well. You could also keep it simple by choosing a color scheme like red and green or red and white.
Select decorations to place on top of the toilet and the counters that are easy to clean. For busy bathrooms that get a lot of use, it’s important to be able to keep them clean, especially if you’re hosting guests. Use that as a guide to choosing decor items. Decorations with smooth ceramic surfaces can be wiped down and dusted quickly, which is a must in a bathroom. Avoid items with a lot of glitter, or items made out of fabric. Don’t clutter the counters with items, but do add some charm to a few select holiday pieces.
Add a candle or an air freshener with a sweet holiday scent such as a spruce tree or warm vanilla sugar. It will bring that extra touch to the bathroom, where an air freshener is always needed. A lit candle on your countertop can be the perfect accent in this space when hosting family and friends for holiday gatherings.
When dressing up your home for the holidays, take the time to select decor for the bathroom. It’s a small space, but can easily add to the holiday charm.
Decorating your bathroom or home for the holidays can be easy, fun and entertaining. You can find excellent supplies and inspiration from flea markets, dollar stores and craft stores. You can start your holiday decorating with a little imagination and creativity. In the end, you will be surprised by how quickly you can transform the look of your living space.
Pine Cone Centerpiece
Get pine cones of different sizes and spray paint them with different shades of silver, gray and gold. Allow to dry and place them in a decorative bowl. Complete the look by adding sprigs of fresh pine and spraying the house with a nice fragrance.
Bow Tie Place Setting
Gather sets of dinner plates and matching fabric napkins. Fold the napkins into rectangular shapes and place them each on top of a dinner plate. Put silverware on top of the napkins and satin ribbons around the dinner plates. Finally use the satin ribbons to tie a ribbon at the center of the napkins. This holiday decorating tip is a favorite with many people because it creates a simple, but classic look for tables.
Gift Mirror or Picture
This is a great holiday decorating idea for your bathroom. Start by wrapping hanging mirrors in your bathroom with festive wrapping paper. Find satin ribbons that coordinate with the color of your mirror frame or bathroom wall and place them on the mirror from top to bottom and from side to side. Place a bowl in the center where the ribbons meet. Make sure the ribbons are strong enough to prevent tears.
Throw pillows can add an instant holiday touch to your living room. The trick is quite simple really. Just buy red or gold throw pillows and add them to your couch. Alternatively, tie color-coordinating ribbons around your existing throw pillows and tie in a bow at the center.
