How to Decorate a Bathroom

By Martin Hart on Thu 15 July 2021

Decorating a bathroom is an integral part of the renovation process. With some clever storage techniques and strategic placement of mirrors and artwork, even the smallest bathrooms can seem much bigger and more suitable for growing families.

If you are looking to decorate your new bathroom but do not know where to start, here’s a look at some stylish upgrades you can make to your interior with just a few little tips, tricks and accessories.

Eye-Catching Handles

Storage space in a bathroom is a much-needed commodity. Whether you opt for cabinets or cupboards, you can utilise some attractive accessories to make your bathroom pop. It’s a quick and cost-effective way to add a touch of style to your bathroom while adding functional pieces.

At Hart Wholesale, we can provide you with a range of cabinet handles, from the traditional to the more modern looking. Our antique handles can add a rustic touch to any bathroom with a more traditional aesthetic, or our cabinet inset handles can provide a more modern, unobtrusive look to your bathroom. With just a few stylish cabinet handles, you can give your bathroom a new distinct style.

Install a Shelf

For a stylish way to add more storage space to your bathroom, install an above the sink shelf. Rather than clutter up your sink with toothbrushes and toiletries, keep them nice and neatly put away on your shelf, freeing up the sink and giving you somewhere to store your things. Your shelf can be made from a wide range of timbers, or even metal or glass. Whatever style your bathroom, you can find the right type of shelf to suit.

Metallic Accents

Adding a dash of metal can give a bathroom a more sophisticated look. Whether it’s in the form of the towel rails, toilet paper holder or even just the soap dish, adding a touch of metal to the bathroom can make it look just that little bit more stylish. What’s more, there’s a range of colours to choose from, such as rose gold and shiny stainless steel, so you can pick accessories to match your colour scheme.

Hart Wholesale have a range of bathroom accessories that can get the job done, such as metal corner caddies, toilet roll holders, towel rings, towel rails and curtain rails. If you need those stylish metal accessories to complete your bathroom, you can get them from us.

Add Mirrors

Most bathrooms will have one mirror hanging above the sink, but did you know that mirrors do more than make our morning routines easier? A mirror is a great way to create more light in your bathroom by reflecting the available light in the space. The reflection can also help make the room look bigger than it really is, perfect for those tiny bathroom spaces.

Incorporate more mirrors into your bathroom space to make the most of the light and create the illusion of more space. If you need mirror fittings to ensure those mirrors remain fixed to the wall, we can help.

Most people have tiles in their bathrooms, which is understandable. They are waterproof, come in a range of styles and are so associated with bathrooms that it’s difficult to imagine a bathroom with anything else. But a bright, bold, patterned wallpaper can completely transform a small space. It can give your bathroom a truly unique look, and you can choose from so many designs in virtually every colour, giving you a complete scope of choice.

Stylish Lighting

Don’t neglect your lighting just because it’s the bathroom. You can still utilise stylish lighting features in the bathroom to help in keeping with your chosen aesthetic. Whether you go for a retro pendant light, a modern light bar or LED lighting, you can completely transform how your bathroom looks with just a few alterations to the lighting.

Ladder Storage

Want an effortless way to spruce up your bathroom? Consider a ladder as storage space. A wooden ladder can be leant against the wall (or attached), and the rungs are then free to hang towels, clothes and washcloths. For a more rustic look in the bathroom, this feature is a cheap and effective way to achieve that look.

Stylish Towels

If you don’t want to renovate your bathroom any further, and you don’t fancy any DIY, something as simple as getting some new towels can really help. With some bright hand towels or shower towels, you can add some eye-catching colour to your bathroom that transforms the way it looks. Your bathroom will always have towels in circulation, so stock up on towels that match your décor or create an excellent contrast and add that final touch of style.
