Let’s be honest. Accessorizing your bathroom has not been at the top of the list. In fact, you probably have several extra shampoo bottles lying around, mix-matched towels, a floor rug that looks like a pup chewed on it and more products circling your sink than QVC sells in a day. Well, been there done that. With my 4 essential tips, you can create a beautifully accessorized bathroom. AND, you can do it on a budget!
4 Essential Tips for Accessorizing
a Beautiful Bathroom
~The Most Important Tip~
Okay, I think I just heard you sigh. But, you need to get rid of the extra clutter. Throw out the extra shampoo, lotion and old Bath & Body soap. You can do it! Toss out the old stuff. Clean out under the sink. Clean out your drawers. I know this isn’t accessorizing, but it is an neccessary step to keeping a clean bathroom.
Uncluttering your bathroom is crucial in creating a space that makes you feel happy just to enter! Because of that, I would plan out a half-a-day to do only this job. Grab a trash bag, put some music on, and get to de-cluttering. Be ruthless! If you haven’t used a product in 3 months, toss it out! Remember: “Life is too short to live in a mess.” And, when you are finished, reward yourself! I always opt for chocolate.
This may sound like a silly basic, but pretty, clean and neat towels are so inviting. Ever walk into a spa and see all of the white towels folded perfectly? It is just inviting and clean. Years ago, I decided on purchasing only white towels. Mostly, because I could bleach them, and having all the same color folded neatly on my shelf was beautiful.
Pretty Ways to Display Towels
Here is an example of decor intended for special guests. Real flowers are displayed in a vase next to a beautiful monogrammed towel, along with a glass tray draping pearls over the side. The remaining item, a glass jar containing cotton balls, fulfills its role of functionality while upholding the overall charm in the space.
I am a believer of “decorating in 3’s”. There is something satisfying about these three bathroom accessories. The tall glass urn homing fun fillers, silk roses resting in the square glass and ceramic jar disguising Q-tips, all work together for a non-cluttered look.
Here is what I placed on a bathtub ledge. I found the silver tray at a local flea market. I rolled four small wash clothes together, filled a small glass jar with bath salts and placed one silk hydrangea in a small vase. Simple but elegant.
I really like this idea. Use a small tray and fill with small crushed rocks or seashells. Place three glass votives and candles in the tray. I actually found all these supplies from Target. Imagine that.
What a simple, clean, uncluttered bathroom! And that is the key to a beautiful bathroom. Take a Saturday afternoon and dedicate it to de-cluttering your bathroom. Be brave. Be determined. Life is too short to live in a mess.
