4 Holiday Decorating Ideas For The Bathroom
When we think of holiday decorations, our minds go to hanging strings of lights on the front porch and dressing up the living room with a Nativity scene. The bathroom usually gets forgotten. But holiday decor brings warmth and happiness to the whole house, and it shouldn't stop at the bathroom door. Here are 4 holiday decorating ideas for the bathroom.
Conventional wisdom encourages shower curtains that match the rest of the room, but there's nothing that says you can't switch out a plain shower curtain for something festive. If your bathroom color scheme allows for it, swap your everyday curtain for a red and green design or something with snowflakes. A matching bathmat punctuates the merry theme and makes stepping out of the shower in the morning as cheery as the season.
Not every vanity has the space to add a lot of decor. For small sinks, cinnamon- and clove-scented soaps and holiday towels with Santa or a snowman brings a festive spirit to the powder room. Bigger bathrooms have more options for creating a holiday scene. Lighted holiday branches or garland add a wintry accent to the backsplash and extra shelving, and holiday window stickers give a bathroom mirror extra sparkle.
The commode is not off-limits for holiday decorating. Just like the vanity, it's a perfect resting place for holiday branches. They give the room a rustic feel. It's also a good place for something more colorful, like holiday figurines. For more functional decor, candles or a holiday dish filled with potpourri keep the bathroom looking and smelling delightful with the spices and scents of Christmas cheer.
Holiday string lights or LED candles add a festive glimmer to any room. In the bathroom, it creates a guiding glow for guests in an unfamiliar home. Whether they're there for a big dinner or staying a week, low lights are welcoming to those making your house their home for the holidays.
Decorating for the holidays is part of the rituals we cherish that start the day after Halloween and last until New Year's Day. From the walkway to the back porch, no room should go unadorned with cheer.
