By using different fabrics, you can embellish it and bring a touch of colour into your bathroom. You can also personalise it by adding your monograms or experiment with other design ideas. Your authentic shower curtain will definitely work as a stunning focal point in your bathroom.

DIY shelves for minimalism and style

There’s no room for clutter in stylish spas, so you need to aim for a structured and organised look in your bathroom. And there’s no better way to combine the useful with the appealing than by introducing DIY storage solutions. If you’re really crafty, you can experiment with different designs and styles, but if you don’t have much experience in working with wood, you can just use crates and repaint them in a stylish hue. You can use this open crate shelves to display candles, mason jars and your personal collections.

An old dresser as a new vanity

If you have an old dresser collecting dust in the attic, you can re-purpose and use it as a stylish bathroom vanity. You can even find an old dresser at a flea market at an affordable price and give it a makeover. Whether you decide to repaint it, replace its old hardware or just add a new counter top, you can really elevate your bathroom décor without spending a fortune. Afterwards, use some simple decorations to create a luxurious appeal. A bowl of fresh flowers accompanied by several scented candles can work as a lovely accent detail.

Accessories for the final touch

Creating a harmonious, cohesive look entails combining different elements to fit the general style of the bathroom. When choosing beautiful new bathroom accessories, you should opt for a high-quality design that will give your bathroom a timeless appeal. While accessories with a matte finish will fit into a minimalist, Scandinavian-inspired design, glossy finishes will work well with modern elements with clean, sleek lines. From bathroom essentials, such as faucets, towel racks and lighting fixtures, to DIY improvised decorations, for example, decorated mason jars used as holders for makeup supplies, make sure to choose a look that will fit your overall bathroom design.
