Our bathrooms are our self-care havens, where we engage in our daily routines to start or wind down our days. As the winter cold settles in this year, we think now is the perfect time to transform our bathrooms into spa-worthy spaces. That is why we have come up with a bathroom refresh guide with five styling tips. They include going bold with bath mats, embracing the one-of-a-kind look of a vintage rug, upgrading your towels and linens, setting the mood with warm, soothing natural scents, and finally, using stylish vanity sets to organize your space. These easy and quick tips are the perfect way to evolve it into the stimulating and restorative bathroom you have been dreaming of. Read on below for our guide, and for even more inspiration on styling your space, shop our looks for the bathroom.
1. Don’t settle for a boring bath mat
A bath mat is an opportunity to inject some texture and personality into your bathroom while also providing some much-needed cushion underfoot. Handwoven from cotton and featuring a timeless check design, the Sebou Mat offers a minimal and supersoft touch. If you have a larger bathroom or a double sink vanity, go bold by adding a plush runner rug. We're fans of a runner with a pop of color and geometric design to add lots of visual appeal.
2. Embrace vintage and personal elements
Is your bathroom feeling generic? A vintage rug or piece of art gives a one-of-a-kind, collected feel to any space. Set down a vintage mini rug in front of the vanity or alongside the bathtub, it's a statement piece with its unique pattern and rich color palette. To complete the look, add in your favorite piece of wall art. From tactile artwork to abstract prints, it's another personal touch that makes your space feel tailored to you.
3. Upgrade your towel set
A lavish and plush towel feels incredible against your skin, so we love the idea of treating yourself with an entire set (or two). To make your at-home spa dreams a reality, layer in fresh stacks of bath towels where you can—we especially love a bathroom that makes you feel like you’re a guest in a fancy hotel. The Coyuchi Air Towel Set is soft, thick and endlessly luxurious feel. This quick-drying towel is a stylish addition to sink counters, shelves, and open linen closets.
4. Incorporate natural textures and scents
Enliven your bathroom by integrating natural, organic elements into your space. Tie a sprig of eucalyptus or rosemary to your shower head, and the steam from the hot shower will fill the room with the most heavenly scent. Or, select a more wintery option with either the Fresh Handmade Baby Blue Eucalyptus Wreath or any other Eucalyptus wreath or garland. As a finishing touch, candles and diffusers with essential oils add warm, soothing aromas to your bathroom. The Vitruvi Essential Line of different oils complements the nature-inspired style with its notes of lavender, geranimim, peppermint, and rosemary.
5. Keep everything organized + in reach
A cluttered bathroom counter can make getting ready in the morning feel rushed and stressful—so create groupings or vignettes of commonly-used products organized on a tray or plate for a styled look. Bathroom accessories crafted from natural materials like rattan or wood provide refined appeal and seamlessly sit back to timeless wooden cabinets or vanities. Round off the calm and collected look with an upgrade on your hand sanitizer, featuring several fragrant botanical scents.
