Getting New Moms Adjusted to Mommyhood One Step at a Time

Group Home

One place that gets overlooked in the décor department is the bathroom. Why? I'm not sure, as we all go in there a lot, spend a fair amount of minutes (perhaps hours?) every day. Sure, re-decorating isn't the first thing that pops into mind when you think of the bathroom, but it's an easy place to get your decorating groove on for not much money.

-- Get some bold colors. We always think of lighter colors when we think of the bathroom, perhaps because they are usually small-ish spaces, but that is a mistake! Grab a bold shower curtain, like this navy one and match it up with some bold blue and white accessories or even another color like yellow or aqua.

-- Go 3D. Often the only texture in the bathroom is the waffle-weave shower curtain or terry cloth towels. Check out this shower curtain that comes in a variety of colors: it has a 3D effect with the attached cutout leaves. A statement for sure. Match it with sleek brushed metal accessories like these from Target.

-- Bring in cool artwork. I have a huge typography poster in my bathroom that says "Today is the day." I got it from Etsy on from thebigharumph. Or use the artwork on these bath sink items. Use the branch and bird motif throughout with beiges and aqua towels and curtains.

-- Create a spa. If you love the clean look of those chic spas, go all white with a splash of natural materials. These bamboo accessories will help complete that Zen vibe.

What is your bathroom decor like? Do you want to redo it?

Our bathroom is currently torn apart, so this is perfect timing for me to read this post. 

We have picked a bold purple color and white for the bathroom. Im trying to find the perfect shower curtain, and I LOVED the example above. Hopefully I can find something just as nice.

I love blues and greens together in a bathroom.

My bathroom is pretty small and I totally remodeled it 6 years ago.  What a job!  I have no desire to redo the decor in there.  It's light, bright, with blue & green.

Wow.. this sounds so nice. Do you have any pictures? 

Quoting ReesesPieces:

My half bath is chocolate brown with lime green hand towels, and a 3 small canvas squares covered with some patterned fabric, and a long rectangle canvas covered with coordinating fabric (all in lime green, white, and chocolate). Total cost was a 1/2 gallon of paint, 1.5 yards of fabric (with plenty left over) and the canvases that I bought on sale for 50% off.

Our smaller bathroom has a fishing/duck theme ...but not childish or cartoon like. Our larger bathroom has a light house theme but we are currently redoing it ... slowly as we can afford to.

We remodeled our bathroom and it really was not that expensive. In fact we had a garage sale and used the money from the sale to remodel the bathroom! We had to add a few hundred dollars our of our savings but it was worth it.

My parents gave us vinyl flooring, we painted, put in new light fixtures, a vanity top and base, large mirror, toilet and over the toilet medicine cabinet for around $800. Almost all of the stuff was from Lowe's and was not generic, it looks really nice!
