Are you looking for a new bathroom design? However, lack the funds or expertise to complete a remodel of your existing space? It can be easy to look at a space and think that it all needs to be ripped out and started afresh. However, with some simple bathroom decorating ideas you can transform the space you have without gutting.

Easy ideas to update your bathroom

Shampoo Niche

When remodelling the tub area, creating an area for the shampoo and bath supplies. Add different colour tiles in the shampoo niche to create a bright look that catches the eye.

Match the Counters

Use the same material you use on the bathroom counters as shelves in the shampoo nook or as a seat in the shower. You can also add unique ledges around the bathroom using the countertops.


Mirrors can be a great way to draw the eye to a specific location. Use mirrors in other places than just over the bathroom sink.

Glass Doors

Barn door style doors are a beautiful way to enclose the shower. Install floor to ceiling glass doors that roll from side to side.

Create a Wetroom

Wet Rooms are starting to become more and more popular. In a wetroom, you can create a room that doesn’t need an enclosed shower. It creates a feeling of openness. While it isn’t for everyone, some people enjoy a wetroom.

Install a New Tub or Shower

One of the easiest ways to refresh a room is to install a new shower or tub. While it is one of the more extensive projects in a bathroom renovation, it can make a bathroom look modern and fabulous.

Add Decor

Once you have updated the tub/shower, and bathroom counters, the next thing to do is create the feeling you want with the bathroom decor. Use decorative pieces to create an inviting space. Add knick knacks on the back of the toilet. Hang framed art pieces on the wall. Hang shelves or cabinets in order to hold towels and washcloths.

Shower Curtains, Rugs and Covers

When you are deciding what curtains, rugs, and covers, match it to the decor you are adding in the bathroom. This creates a unified look and adds to the room instead of clashing with it.

Tuck-Away the Clutter

Try to keep the clutter behind closed doors and out of sight. Storing things like makeup, toiletries like toothbrushes and hair brushes, and other items, even when you use them daily, can make the room have a clean look. When left out, these things make the room look cluttered.

Keep these things in mind while you are renovating your bathroom to create a new modern looking space.

    I definitely needed to read this post – our bathroom is looking pretty darn tired and needs a wee bit of TLC. The only question is where to start! I might just take up your suggestion of switching up the colour scheme through the accessories first!

    I think removing the clutter and having the storage hidden away makes a real difference. I like the idea of the shampoo storage nook. Mich x
