Dress Up Your Guest Bathroom With These Tips


Excited to host friends and family in the upcoming months? A perfect way to welcome visitors to your home is to ensure your guest bathroom is decorated and styled to make them feel right at home.

Even if your guest bathroom is smaller, it doesn’t have to be boring! All you need is the right furniture, decor and imagination to get the guest bathroom perfectly dressed up for your loved ones.

Ready to get started? Keep reading and explore our top tips for a guest bathroom that visitors will love:

1. Add plants and nature to your space

Plants can instantly add color and warmth to any space, without taking up a lot of room. Beyond that, they help set up a calming environment for relaxation — perfect for visiting family and friends. To make them last, be sure to choose hardy plants that thrive in humidity, such as a pothos plant or aloe. Sound like too much hassle? Opt for fake plants that match your style without the additional care needs.

2. Include lots of storage space

The perfect guest bathroom has all of your visitors’ toiletry needs tucked away for easy access. Great examples of storage decor ideas include shelves, freestanding cabinets and woven baskets. If you don’t have much floor real estate, floating or built-in shelves can instantly add more storage space without cluttering the floor. Similarly, stackable baskets can be easily tucked away under sinks and on shelves to hold your guest’s items.

3. Play with your flooring

If you want to try something new, pick bold colors or patterns to showcase with tile flooring. If you have a specific color scheme or style, your tiles can emphasize this to create a cohesive look. For those who prefer a neutral or minimalist style, geometric tiles can elevate the space without conflicting with your current design. This is the perfect space to experiment and play with unique decor for your interior design goals.

4. Create an art gallery wall

Art is a great way to showcase your personal style. Choose an assortment of prints and frames that can be placed together on a wall to form your ideal gallery. This will elevate the guest bathroom while also making the space more inviting. If you’re worried about humidity, metal and ceramic prints can withstand the high-moisture conditions of any bathroom.

5. Invest in high-quality towels

Want to go the extra mile? Choose towels, hand towels and washcloths that serve both a functional and decorative purpose. Highlight your favorite color scheme and patterns with folded or stacked towels that will wow your guests. After all, what’s better than a cozy towel after a refreshing shower? And since they match your bathroom aesthetic, you can even put them on display instead of tucking them away into a closet for storage.

6. Set up a statement wall

Designing a statement wall will instantly add depth and dimension to your guest bathroom. Some popular ideas include painting a two-toned wall or experimenting with decorative wallpaper. Both are easy to incorporate into any bathroom and will instantly create a one-of-a-kind space for guests to relax.
