9 Ingenious Ways to Make Your Bathroom Look Expensive

The Bathroom. It might be the most important room in your house and quite frankly, unless you live alone, it’s the only time you’re actually by yourself. Since you spend quite some time in there, why not make it look good?

There are so many bathroom products, accessories and decorations out there, to make your bathroom look expensive – from something as simple as a gold tray to fresh flowers.

With that said, you don’t have to spend a fortune to make your bathroom look $$! Create your own spa oasis with our tips;

Think fluffy

If you are going to splurge anywhere in your bathroom, update your towels and bath rug first. A soft, fluffy, neutral-colored towel goes a long way if you are trying to turn your basic bathroom into a spa-like oasis.

Dim the lights

Cursed with über-bright overhead lights? Install a dimming switch if you can, turning those harsh lights into sexy mood lighting.

If you are in a rental and can’t install dimmers, add in a selection of alternate lighting: Small lamps, sconces, and candles galore.

Engage all of your senses

Speaking of candles: Place ones with a relaxing scent you love all around the room, ready to be lit when you’re itching for a bubble bath. If candles aren’t your thing, consider potpourri or scented diffusers.

Swap out your showerhead

There is just something so luxurious about a rainfall showerhead: They are softer and less grating, making each shower feel like a special occasion, not an obligation.

Add art

It is a shame how many people forget to add personality to their bathrooms, especially considering how many hours of our lives are spent there.

Adding a large piece of artwork can be the perfect way to tie the whole room together — but we also love the look of a well-curated bathroom gallery wall.

More seating

If you have got the room, adding extra seating like a small stool or ottoman will make your bathroom look elegant and upscale.

Where else would you sit while you moisturize, your legs propped up on the tub like a scene from Pretty Woman? On the toilet? No.

Arrange artfully

Consider your counter: Are your beauty and hygiene supplies just strewn about randomly? If so, adding a few small trays can mean the difference between a mess and an artful arrangement.

And don’t write off apothecary jars just because they are a cliché — they are a beautiful way to display the small but necessary items that often come in gaudy packaging.

Add greenery

A bathroom should not be a plant-free zone. Not only do they help clear the air, but they are an easy way to add color, personality, and drama to a stale bathroom. And thanks to the higher level of humidity, the plants are much easier to keep alive (even for a green thumb!).

Not sure which plants are best? Try aloe vera, bamboo, and philodendrons.

Get a bathtub tray

What’s more luxe than a wooden bathtub tray? It got space for your book, your loofah, your glass of wine — everything you need for the relaxing home-spa day of your dreams.
