For those living in apartments, the bathroom is usually a stark and white place. People renting apartments cannot paint the walls or add fixtures as they wish. Apartment bathroom decorating ideas are not limited to painting and installing new fixtures. There are many apartment bathroom decorating ideas which can spruce up your bathroom and make it look colorful, clean and fresh.
The first step is to think of ways to de-clutter your bathroom. If you are the kind who uses an array of crams, lotions and so on, it would be a god idea to get a bathroom cabinet. You can even make one yourself or buy one and paint it as you wish. It will add a splash of color to your bathroom. If your landlord permits, ask if you can get a shelf built in.
Arrange items like soap, shampoos, oils etc neatly on the shelf. If you can’t get a shelf, buy a tray to hold your stuff. This will prevent clutter from accumulating on counters. If your bathroom is small, place towel racks behind the door. On the other hand if your towel rack is already affixed, add a dash of color to your bathroom by using bright, colorful towels with print or patterns. The shower curtain need not be white or cream either. You can choose bright colored ones too.
Make sure the color of the shower curtain, the towels and the overall color scheme of the bathroom match or you will have a melee of colors with hint sense of art or style. Include plenty of mirrors to give the bathroom an element of space. These days, vinyl appliques are becoming really trendy accessories for decorating bathrooms. You can buy a design of your choice and apply it on the mirror or shelves or use it to design tiles. If you decide to get rid of them, just heat it for a while and it will peel off by itself.
Keep your bathroom stylish yet functional. Use nice soap dispensers or soap trays. Colorful soaps shaped like fruits or shells add charm to your bathroom. You can also accessorize your bathroom using rugs, potted plants or even paintings.
