Simple Ideas To Make Your Bathroom Sparkle For The Holidays
The bathroom is not the first thing we think of when we're plotting out our holiday decor, but every room in the house deserves to be touched by the holiday spirit. Whether you have guests coming over for a holiday dinner or you expect drop-ins from friends and neighbors, you want your restroom to be warm and welcoming for them. Here are 4 simple ideas to make your bathroom sparkle for the holidays.
The bathroom vanity can be more than just an anchor for your mirror -- it can be used as a resting place for all sorts of festive frills to bring your guests cheer. Bigger sinks can be a spot for angel candleholders or snowflake hurricanes. If you want to go all out, a Nativity scene adds a little bit of joy to a neutral space. For smaller sinks, look to the mirror or wall clocks and use photos to add sparkle -- line them with string lights or garland to add holiday elegance.
Make The Unmentionable Mentionable
The commode is not a strictly functional fixture. It has enough unused surface area to act as a shelf or landing strip for Christmas curios. Let it be the home for your caroling figurines, or lay a few evergreen branches dressed in red bows on it to give it a rustic touch. If you want to keep it simple, save the spot to stash your potpourri or holiday candles to bring in the scents and spices of the season to delight your guests.
Swap out our neutral shower curtains and bathmats for accessories with festive flair! Don't go overboard -- you don't want your everyday decor to clash with the seasonal trimmings, but if your color scheme is forgiving, add red and green or white and ice blue for linens to match the merry season. Let the festivity flow from ceiling to floor!
You can find a little extra holiday warmth and provide a guiding light to guests with LED lights and string lights. Whether you sprinkle corners with flameless candles or line the ceilings with strands that glimmer, having the room subtly illuminated at all times makes guests feel at home for the holidays.
