5 Styling Tips To Create The Ultimate Bathroom Oasis

5 Styling Tips To Create The Ultimate Bathroom Oasis

Though the bathroom is one of the most-used zones in the home, sometimes it doesn't always get the attention it deserves. Whether you rent or own, bathrooms tend to be on the smaller side, and are mostly dominated by their necessary fixtures, which doesn't always leave a lot of room for design additions. Thankfully, there are a few simple ways to create a charming and inspired bathroom, regardless of size. Below, we share our simple tips for making your bathroom feel like the calming oasis that it should be.

1. Choose Color

We always suggest choosing a color scheme that will set the overall mood you want for your bathroom. Whether you're looking to keep things bright and airy with a muted hue, or opt for darker tones to create a moody oasis, there's really no wrong choice when it comes to picking the perfect palette.

Tip: If painting isn't an option, adding in pops of color through accessories like towels and decor can also add a fun touch!

2. Plant Party

Plants are one of our favorite ways to add a fresh and natural touch to your bathroom. That said, it's important to choose plants that thrive in a humid environment, such as ferns, spider plants, or bamboo.

3. Brighten Up

Here at Schoolhouse, we're strong believers that lighting can really make a room shine. That said, lighting in a bathroom is especially crucial, as it can affect the overall mood and ambience of the room. We recommend adding a mix of overhead lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting to create a balanced and inviting space.

4. Play With Pattern

The easiest way to add a touch of pattern to your bathroom is by opting for a patterned shower curtain. Whether you want to keep things neutral with an earth-toned classic like our Gingham Shower Curtain in Russet, or add a touch of whimsy to your space with our Blooming Field Shower Curtain, you can make a big impact with this simple swap.

Tip: Display your towels! Towels can be a great way to add color and texture to your bathroom. We recommend placing them on open shelving or in a decorative basket for easy access.

5. Accessorize Accordingly

Accessorizing with stylish storage solutions is a great way to add a little flair to your bathroom while keeping clutter at bay. Keep your bathroom organized by using decorative baskets, trays, and containers to corral bathroom essentials. This is also a great way to infuse color into your bathroom as well!
