Bath Towels for Bathroom Décor
One way to add some color to the room and give it a fresh look is to choose your bath towels carefully, and to display them as décor. Baskets or other containers that can hold the rolled up towels can become part of the bathroom decoration while keeping them handy to be used after a bath or shower. If you have a very pale bathroom and you prefer white or very light towels, this option might not add color but it will add texture. If you have a colorful bathroom, consider purchasing your towels in the different colors defined in the room so that where you store the towels is multicolored and interesting.
Furniture that you can add to your bathroom are things like shelves that go over the toilet, a freestanding towel closet or hamper, a vanity table and chair, as well as other things that can hold towels, soaps and other bathroom accouterments. If you choose metal pieces, they’ll give a very modern and contemporary sensibility to your bathroom décor. Wicker gives an entirely different feeling. Choose these pieces with care to create the atmosphere and style that you want. You can find entire bathroom sets that might contain a hamper, a shelf and perhaps even something that goes on the wall.
Small Touches Make for Big Bathroom Décor
Bathroom mirrors come in every shape and size today and can be very plain or they can be gilded and extremely fancy. If you have a very modern bathroom, a plain mirror surrounded by metal could work well. If your bathroom has a more romantic style then a mirror that has a scrolling frame or something with more interest is called for. And don’t forget small touches like bathroom rugs, the small pieces that you set on your vanity to hold things like your toothbrush or soap, and things like your shower curtain and whether it’s lacy and flowing or made from vinyl in a novelty pattern. Choose these things carefully and you can achieve a great bathroom décor for very little money.
