You don’t have to turn your bathroom into an art gallery, but bringing in some artwork is a fun way to infuse your personality into the space. Pick pieces that won’t get ruined by the moisture in the room. You can go humorous, add a quote, or hang some peaceful artwork.

There’s something about a pile of fluffy white towels ready and waiting that’s so stylish, and it’s a tried and true bathroom interior design trick. Whether they’re displayed in a wired wall unit–

Add a Modern Hamper

It’s time to throw out that plastic hampers you’ve had for years and replace it with something more upscale. A nice hamper is a nice functional bathroom accessory that will look nice and keep your used towels and dirty clothes off the floor. You can keep the look clean and classic or you can add texture with a woven hamper.

Replace The Shower Curtain

Mix In Some Seating

If you like to take long soaks in the tub, give your wine glass a place to rest. Stools are multifunctional and are great for the bathroom. When you’re not using it to sit on, it can act as a side table for essentials.

Stylize Your Counters

Clutter is the number one mood killer in a bathroom. To maintain that fresh-interior-designer touch, keep a few things out on the vanity counter as possible. Pick a few essentials, like an artisan soap, and luxurious hand lotion.

Update Your Vanity

You can give your old vanity a new coat of paint in a dark color or replace it altogether. If you want a crisp and clean look, opt for a vanity that has a seamless look.

Give Your Robe A Home

I can think of nothing better than exiting a hot shower only to have your robe ready and waiting, hanging on a hook within reach. To up your bathroom interior design, showcase a crisp white robe or one that matches your decor.

Up Your Mirror Game

If you’re looking to maintain a clean and modern feel, go for a sleeker-looking mirror. Bathroom mirrors that incorporate bathroom lighting into them give a modern bathroom a minimal look.
