Every room in your house should be decorated in a style that represents you and makes you feel comfortable and as nowadays the bathroom has become a real sanctuary for privacy, we need to pay atention at how we organize and style it to reach its maximum potential.
The bathroom must be a fully functional room, which reflects your style and personality and which delights you through the combination of colors and textures.
The processes of arranging a bathroom are quite complex because everything must be related to functionality in a relatively small space. Therefore, careful planning is needed to help you turn your dream bathroom into reality and to offer you optimal solutions when you encounter problems.
- First you need to know which style is closer to you: modern, minimalist, romantic, navy, rustic, etc.
- But don’t forget that an essential aspect in the arrangement of the bathroom refers to the type of home (house, flat, studioflat) and depend on the dedicated space.
Mostly, the apartment bathroom is nowhere near as spacious, it doesn’t have those wide open windows to forested mountains like we see on Instagram because, well, in the city we are not surrounded by nature, and often, that space also has other functions: it also houses a washing machine, a mop, etc.
I know, it’s not exactly like in the magazines, but that’s how things are in real life.
Even if you don’t have the budget to make radical changes, focus on the details that will make the room look fresher and more stylish. And here are some good ideas I think will make your bathroom look more sophisticated ⬇️
It gives an illusion of space especially in small rooms and it also helps us to lighten the spaces.
Moreover, mirrors are particularly appreciated for its aestheticism according to the shape or the style that it declines. For example a minimalist mirror with light curves brings contrast, as well as a touch of elegance. More ex. bellow ⬇️
Suspended Shelves / Towel Racks
A traditional bathroom vanity isn’t the only way to go, especially if you have a small space. Simply suspend a compact wooden shelf on the wall above your sink and style it with your favorite decorative accents.

Touch of Greenery
Change the appearance of the bathroom with the help of plants. If you don’t have the opportunity to buy bouquets of fresh flowers every few days, it is enough to find a place for an indoor plant.
Among the plants grown in pots, the following will feel great in the humid environment of the bathroom: Spathiphyllum or Peace Lily, orchids, fern, ficus, aloe, azalea, begonia or dwarf palm. But don’t forget that this decorative trick can only be applied in the case of bathrooms with windows.
Glass Storage Jars for the bathroom
All throughout the year, glass jars are in season. Pickle jars, mustard jars, jam jars, peanut butter jars…
Glass jars can be found in all sizes and colors. They are omnipresent, in abundance, infinitely useful and can surely be recycled when you are through with their contents.
Thus, instead of keeping the makeup remover disks in the original plastic packaging, you can pour them into a transparent glass jar with a lid. Depending on the size of the containers, you can use them to store and organize cotton buds, soaps, for bath salts and essences and even for storing hair brushes and razors.
Woven baskets for efficient and beautiful organization
With all the shelves and cabinets, keeping a tidy bathroom requires permanent work and continuous attention. No matter how much you try to keep order in the pile of creams, shampoos, lotions and perfumes, a few days after cleaning, you discover that they have mixed up and you have to start all over again.
Without a doubt, some woven baskets or storage boxes are the solution to this problem. Sort all toiletry and personal hygiene products by category and then store each category in a woven basket.
This way it will be much easier for you to find them when you need them. In addition, you will considerably shorten the time allocated to cleaning and tidying up the bathroom.
The laundry basket – a decorative and practical element.
If you live in a small apartment and the bathroom is the only place where you can store your dirty clothes, invest in a large and beautiful laundry basket.
I recommend you to choose a wooden, wicker or woven rattan laundry basket, provided on the inside with a removable canvas bag, which you can wash and even replace periodically.
Let’s be serious, it’s not an big investment, and the visual effect is really worth the expense!
Toilet paper holders
These are a practical home accessory that every bathroom or toilet space requires, comes in different innovative shapes, materials, finishes and can reinvigorate your space.
Replace Your Bath Mat
Finally, a dirty or tired bath mat is a surefire way to make your bathroom look unkempt. If you have one, there’s no question that it should be swiftly replaced.
But the fanciest bathrooms have taken this a step further by replacing terry cloth mats with Turkish and Persian rugs.
The tufted wool rugs are both soft and the perfect substitute for a bath mat. Better yet, with beautiful patterns and colors that only get better as they fade, they can add so much personality and sophistication to your bathroom.
