Staff Writer · Sep 6, 2009

Could you use a few bathroom decorating tips for its makeover? While bathrooms should be functional, they should also look good. In a small apartment, there are a handful of ways to maximize space without compromising good design. The key is to balance your own person style with space saving techniques to make your bathroom look and feel how you want. Check out a couple of these ideas:

Use Your Wall Space

Wall space can be used for both storage and décor. By using shelving, you can keep your bathroom organized by reducing clutter and creating a designated space for various items. Try using a towel rod that is connected to a shelf to organize extra towels. You can also use this space to store bulk items such as extra toilet paper and other items that you’ll want to easily access like a blow dryer or razor. To keep things hidden, try Ikea’s Lillangen bathroom series. The frosty windows allow you to see just enough of what’s inside.

Once you’ve put your items away, try decorating your bedroom with accessories to create ambiance in your bathroom. Candles, scent diffusers or even a trio of small vases are popular items that will freshen up any bathroom. Do you have portable music speakers? Try adding some tunes in your bathroom to help get your morning started right!

Use Storage Containers to Get Organized

Invest in a variety of storage containers to organize your toiletries and accessories. The Container Store has an array of items in any category to help you get organized. Their Bamboo Countertop Accessories collection contains trays and cup holders that work well in the the bathroom because they hold up against water and will also give your bathroom a sophisticated look. If you have a lot of small items, try using an over-the-door shoe organizer. This is a great way to store make up, hair essentials and other accessories.

Add Colorful Décor

One of the best ways to add color to your bathroom is to paint an accent wall. This will help set the tone of the room and also help you easily add other decorations because you’ve selected the dominant color. Another creative way to liven up your bathroom is to use your toiletries as decorations. Try making a display out of your toilet paper. For example, you can create a pyramid of toilet paper on top of a shelf. Method cleaning products are colorful and environmentally friendly and also make a great display. Stock up on a few bottles of soap and cleaners and arrange it by color. Not only will you have a full stock of toiletries, you’ll have a cool arrangement too.

When you decorate, try to infuse your personality, but balance it off by using space saving ideas. Like your bedroom, a comfortable and pleasant bathroom is an important part of your apartment’s feel. With a few space saving and decorating tips, you’ll be on your way to an amazing bathroom in no time!
