Picking a theme is an easy way to tie all of your bathroom details together without changing too much around. Add some key details (like a sailboat picture for a nautical theme, or some shells for a coastal theme) and a basic color theme, and voila! You’ve got a finished look even if it’s not completely new and renovated.

2. Update Your Shower Curtain

Whether it’s collecting mold, getting dingy, or just out of date, your shower curtain is easily replaced and makes a huge difference in your bathroom’s appearance. Get a fresh new style or color, or get a plain jane curtain and paint or stencil the look that’s right for you!

3. Add Some Wall Decor

It could be as simple as some framed photographs or as unique as this giant wooden key — all that matters is that it adds some points of interest to your bathroom and gives it a homier feel. Try a colorful sign made from repurposed wood, or a vintage clock.

4. Make Toiletries Part of Decor

Guests should feel at home in your house without having to bring along all of their belongings. Provide basic toiletries, like soap, cotton swabs and cotton balls, to ensure that your guests feel taken care of. Then find a cute way to display them.

5. Get Some Good-Looking Towel Storage

It’s important to always have fresh, clean towels available for visitors, so make sure you’ve got the storage space. Adding some antique hooks or an industrial bar is a quick and convenient upgrade for your bathroom.

6. Bring In a DIY Air Diffuser — It Makes ‘Scents’

Ensuring that your bathroom always has a fresh scent is a hostess must! Guests will immediately feel more comfortable in a new place if it’s inviting to their senses. Make your own potpourri or air diffuser to sit atop your toilet tank, counter or shelf, and freshen up the room.
