Most home owners opt for a minimalist but functional bathroom decor style. That’s natural considering many of those bathrooms are rather small and there’s not so much space to work a very detailed decor in.

And yet even such an obscure place as the bathroom can be decorated to make a strong impression. In fact, small spaces make it easier to achieve great results with small touch ups that you can DIY. Here are 10 ideas for you to try if you want to make the most of your bathroom decor.

Wall Art

Add DIY letters to decorate the walls for an accent and a personal touch. The weathered paint look create a brilliant rustic bathroom decor accent.

Towel Hooks

We prefer towel hooks instead of bars for two reasons. For one, they make organizing towels so much easier, and secondly, you can use these gorgeous crystal knobs as hooks.

Pebble Tiling

Instead of tiles, try using pebbles for some areas such as the shower floor.


Since bathrooms are usually small and they require storage for many bathroom accessories, shelves are welcome in bathroom decor. And this is where you can get really creative. Use (or re-use) wood for nice rustic shelves.

Use baskets for a rustic accent.

Our beloved upcycled mason jar shelves make an appearance in bathroom decor as well.

Crates make great shelves too.

Upcycle Bottles

There are many uses for bottles in a bathroom and you can make it count, such as this whiskey bottle being used as a liquid soap dispenser.

Storage Racks and Cabinets

Old wooden boxes make great cabinets. Use them for a cheap alternative and a rustic accent.

It’s easy to make one out of reclaimed wood too.



Ladders make natural towel racks.


It doesn’t have to be all functional. Create vignettes for that art deco element.

Be Creative with TP Holders

No risk of running out of toilet paper with this design.

Old Bicycle as a Vanity

Who would’ve thought that an old bike can make such a wonderful bathroom vanity.

Make It Personal

Hanging pictures and arranging decorative accessories for display is a great way to make bathroom decor personal. There’s no reason why it should not get the same decor benefits as your other rooms.
