9 accessory ideas that will beautify your bathroom

How can you make your bathroom beautiful without redecorating or renovation? It’s an age-old dilemma, but luckily, it’s one that can be answered with the addition of a few stylish bathroom accessories. Not sure where to start? No problem. We've rounded up some easy and budget-friendly bathroom accessories ideas that will effortlessly decorate your washroom but don’t require any paint.

1. Use a bright bath mat

If you’re looking for design ideas to style a plain bathroom, why not start by decorating the floor with a statement bath mat? Not only will this multifunctional bathroom accessory add a pop of pattern and colour, but it will also give you somewhere soft and dry to step after a bath or shower.

2. Use fancy trinket pots

Even the smallest accessories can make a difference when decorating your bathroom. Instead of keeping cotton balls and buds in their plastic bags, use lidded pots to add a fancy - and tidy - touch to your décor.

3. Upgrade your soap dish

If your sink or cupboard space is minimal, a colourful soap dish makes a great accessory idea for bathrooms, especially small ones. Choose a fun design to make a stylish feature of this functional item, which you can mix and match with your other bathroom accessories.

4. Add a floral fragrance

Fragrance is an often-overlooked element of bathroom decoration, but it can have just as much impact as an ornament. A candle, diffuser or incense stick holder in a stylish or chic votive will add decoration as well as scent, and it will create a luxurious ambience while you relax in the bath.

5. Introduce relaxing rituals

Make sure you have a selection of bath & body care products to make the most of your beautified bathroom. Sit back and relax with a pair of bath salts in relaxing scents or opt for a hydrating skincare routine.

6. Use refillable soap dispensers

Whether you’re looking for bathroom decorating ideas on a budget or something to make your small bathroom look luxurious, decanting your soaps and shampoos into reusable glass dispensers will rid your room of unsightly plastic bottles. The Amour hand wash and lotion set contains a blend of cassis and mandarin, each held in a chic glass bottle that you can re-use once finished.

7. Keep cosmetics in a makeup bag

A makeup bag is a useful bathroom accessory that will decorate your vanity as well as your travel bag. While you might keep your lesser-used cosmetics in a cupboard, storing your go-to lotions, potions and powders in a wash bag will make it easy to grab them when you go out and about.

8. Use wall space for storage

Don’t overlook your bathroom’s wall space. A row of storage hooks will create a place to hang your towels, dressing gowns, laundry bags and more. Whether you prefer traditional or more modern bathroom accessories, look for a well-designed piece to keep your textiles handy.

9. Use a patterned laundry bag

Keep your washing neatly tucked away with a fabric laundry bag. This is a great way to add an extra pop of colour or pattern to your space, and a cotton blend is super easy to clean. You can neatly close the bag with a drawstring fastening, and the two carry handles make it easy to move to the washing machine.
