Often, bathrooms are considered utilitarian spaces that only need to be clean, functional, and get the job done. But your restroom doesn’t need to be white, sterile, and boring. You can add a little personality. Here are six unique decor ideas for your bathroom to do just that:
A Fun Neon Sign
Many bathrooms need better lighting, making it hard to do your makeup, find toothpaste, or get ready in the morning. A fun neon sign can help with this problem while making the room look more stylish. Set the mood for your routine with a fun quote or even a cheeky nude outline. You can find customizable neon lights online from Radikal Neon® if you want something completely unique. In just a few minutes, you can design a fun LED sign that will illuminate the room and showcase your personality.
A Living Plant Wall
A living plant wall is a bold, beautiful way to bring the outdoors into your home. It adds texture, color, and interest to a space. While more of a commitment than other DIY bathroom projects (after all, unless you choose to go artificial, you’ll have to water it and keep it alive), this idea has the potential to make a wow statement.
You can incorporate grow lights into the design if you don’t have fantastic natural lighting. There are lots of DIY kits available at home improvement stores online. Of course, if you aren’t up for the project yourself, professional teams also install living walls for you!
Unique Wall Tile, with a Mural
Tile is a prevalent choice for a bathroom. It’s easy to keep clean and comes in various patterns and colors. But if your space looks tired, it may be time for a tile update. Why not incorporate a fun mural out of tile? A mural is a great way to add a permanent piece of art to your wall that is permanent and is safe from steam. If you’re a crafty person, you can make a mosaic using leftover tile from past projects or by checking the clearance bin at your favorite home decor store.
A Kitschy Theme
Ah, kitsch. The art of making the tacky look good. While certainly not an aesthetic for the conservative, it’s a fun way to wow your guests and stop them in their tracks. Look up fun, kitschy themes and go to town. Some ideas for you:
- Pink Flamingos
- Fruits and Vegetables
- Under the Sea
- The Wild Wild West
Kitsch is excellent if you start with a bathroom that some might call outdated. If you’re surrounded by pink tile, embrace it! If your space has old-fashioned fixtures or wallpaper (or both!), don’t be afraid to use them as part of your design scheme.
Mirrors, Mirrors on the Wall
Finding a mirror in a bathroom is no surprise. But what about a floor-to-ceiling mirror? Or an entire wall made of mirrored tiles? How about a giant disco ball? Think beyond the traditional over-the-sink mirror and find fun ways to incorporate mirrors into your space.
Mirrors are a great way to add style and interest to any room in your home, but they are significant in bathrooms, which tend to be smaller spaces. Mirrors help these rooms feel larger and brighter than they actually are by making them feel more spacious. They can also hide items like toothbrushes and razors you might not want on display when guests come over. They can be functional while also adding personality and charm. Not only can they change how your space looks, but they can also change how it feels.
These six unique bathroom ideas are deceptively simple but can go a long way to make a bathroom feel more fun, engaging, and personalized. The only limit is your imagination! Always consider this room another opportunity to be creative in the home by using one of the decor tips we have shared, whether it be a fun and bright LED sign from Radikal Neon® or a customized living wall — and create the unique bathrooms you’ve been dreaming of.
