When decorating an apartment, one of the most overlooked areas is the bathroom. However, a little style can boost your mood when relaxing in the tub, brushing your teeth, or unwinding during your nighttime skincare routine.

Here are a few ways you can add unique flair to your bathroom:

Add a Gallery Wall

While gallery walls are typically reserved for living rooms, they can also serve as a tasteful addition to your bathroom. When creating your display, consider utilizing a theme. Celebrate your favorite vacation with Parisian art or tropical island photography. If you’re feeling sentimental, collect photos of family and friends and blow them up for your wall. If you have a cohesive Instagram aesthetic, pull photos from your account and scatter them strategically in your bathroom.

Incorporate Plants

Plants will add a soothing feel to any area of the home and the bathroom is no exception. Many renters shy away from putting plants in the bathroom due to a lack of light. However, there are a number of resilient plants who can survive and sometimes thrive with less light. For a lush, tropical feel, consider pothos, ferns, and philodendron for this space. Or, celebrate a desert aesthetic with succulent plants like small cacti or aloe. You can also incorporate greenery by hanging eucalyptus from your shower head. Not only will this enliven the space, but it will emit a calming scent when mingling with hot steam.

Turn it Into a Spa

As a place where you start and end your day, a bathroom should feel relaxing and tranquil. For a peaceful aesthetic, find inspiration in popular spa interiors. Incorporate bamboo accents by adding a wooden bath mat or soap dish. Next, invest in a luxurious robe and slippers and hang on the back of the bathroom door. Finally, place candles throughout the space and keep a lighter in the medicine cabinet so you’re always prepared to set the mood.
