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.
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.
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.)
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.
I hope you enjoyed this peek at my bathroom and picked up a few tips along the way. I have lots more apartment updates to share with you. Have a happy weekend!
