Simple Tips to Style Your Bathroom - bathroom decorating ideas / decor hacks | Inspired by Charm

The giveaway has ended. Thanks to everyone that entered. Congrats to the winner, Kerry T.! Have fun shopping at HomeGoods!

 

When I first posted photos of my new home in Pittsburgh, one of you asked to see my bathroom. Well, today is your lucky day. Not only am I sharing a look at my bathroom, but I’m also directing you to some decor hacks to add style to any bathroom. PLUS, I’m giving away a $100 HomeGoods gift card! (Be sure to enter toward the bottom of this post before you click away.)

I’ve never been much for sharing bathroom spaces on Inspired by Charm because I didn’t have a bathroom worth sharing. Most of the bathrooms in my St. Marys home need a major makeover. Not only that, but they don’t have windows, making them a challenge to photograph. Now that I have two presentable bathrooms, I’m more apt to share.

As you might expect, because I’m renting, I’m stuck with builder basic. Part of my brain is already thinking, “Get a new light fixture, swap out the mirror, change the hardware, etc.” However, I’m trying to be smart about the changes I make here since I know that, one day, I’m going to have to switch it all back. (That’s one of the things I don’t love about renting.)

Whether I decide to change the mirror and light fixtures is still TBD, but that’s not going to stop me from creating a stylish and welcoming bathroom in the meantime.

As you may know, I write a monthly post for the HomeGoods Design Happy Blog. My latest post talks all about my bathroom and specific hacks for adding style to any builder grade bathroom. You can check out that post here.

In a nutshell, it’s about bringing in personal style with unique, decorative, and functional touches.

For example, I had enough space for a basket with a lid. Not only does this add great texture to the room, but it provides additional storage for towels as well as a surface for things like bubble bath and a small vase of flowers.

It’s little details like these that personalize a space. No matter what type of bathroom you have. you can easily add such items.

I think it’s also important to get creative when styling a space that’s typically rather bland. Remember that creamer and sugar set from my beverage station? I decided to try it in the bathroom to corral cotton swabs and balls. It serves a purpose and looks cute. Winning!

I also picked up a brass and glass lantern and filled it with bath bombs. It’s a triple threat with bling, color, and scent. (I’m crazy excited that I now have a tub large enough to allow me to enjoy a bath bomb.)

Sidenote: Did you know you can make your own bath bombs? I have a DIY tutorial that will show you how. You can find it here.

In addition, I used a large-scale piece of art in the space for a pop of color and interest. I also opted to mix up my bath towels for a more collected look.

While this room certainly has a long way to go, I’m thrilled it’s a bit cozier and that it has a touch of my personal style.

    Love your color choices! I’m also curious about the brand and source of your bath towels. That texture!!!

      They are all from HomeGoods. The tag on the green towels say “Hotel” and the brown towels are “Vera Wang.” Hope that helps!
