Nothing helps you to get in holiday mood as if you covered your own halls with all your seasonal decor. Whether you're doing the full-fledged tree and pendulum on every mantelpiece and railing or just putting down a few cherished items, getting your house ready for the holiday is part of the fun of the season. Do not miss your chance to extend that experience to any room in your home. When decorating a bathroom for the holidays, make sure that every corner of your living space is filled with cheers.
But how do you decorate what is usually a smaller, highly established space? You probably can not move around furniture to make room, and between walls and shower, your walls are probably already quite full. That does not mean, however, that you have to give up this festive occasion. We have collected a number of quick and easy ways to decorate a bathroom for the holidays.
Use the entire room
As we have already discussed, bathrooms are more compact than most other rooms that you are going to furnish. This is where the use of every square centimeter is crucial – including those under your toes. Some bath mats with a holiday theme are a great way to prepare your bathroom in seconds for the season. And because they are made to be resistant to wear and moisture, they take good care when they are not in use.
Embrace what you have
If your bathroom is already red, white or green, it will probably be a breeze to set it up for the holidays. But what if it is black or blue? You could try to put together the traditional holiday colors, but you'll probably just go crazy by trying to fuse the colors in such a small space.
Instead, work with what you already have in place. A beachy, blue bathroom works well with snow-inspired accents in white and silver. A minimalist, dark bathroom can get a holiday update with a collection of evergreen branches on the kitchen counter or a simple black and white holiday decor. If you let your current space know your design choices when decorating a bathroom for the holidays, it will be much easier to prepare your home for the holidays.
Use your leftovers
Do you have an extra holiday decor that does not fit anywhere else in the house? Find it a room in the bathroom! Even seemingly unconventional bathroom furnishings can work with a little creativity. Suppose you have an extra stocking. In isolation, it may seem out of place. But if you fill it with some seasonal green, it will be a perfect addition.
Keep a clean palette
Bright, cheerful colors are a hallmark of the season. That does not mean that you should try to include them all in your bathroom. Because it is a relatively limited space, saturated colors can quickly be too much of a good thing. It is a good idea to choose an accent color that coincides with the elements that already exist in space and build from there.
Mix your metals
Most bathrooms have a large part of the hardware. Your tap, drawer pull and shower curtain rod are all design options. Integrate metal holiday accessories on your kitchen counter to create a cohesive appearance quickly and easily. The hard textures of metal decor work well in a room where you do not want things to hold onto moisture. And mixed metals give the decor of your holiday bathroom a glamor feeling.
Keep it simple
Decorating a bathroom for the holiday should be fun. If it feels like a burden, you probably do too much. Just hanging a wreath over the kitchen counter, adding a small vase with evergreen branches or hanging a piece of jewelry on a wall sconce is enough. This is a small space, so you do not have to do much. If you are still looking for inspiration, we have 10 simple decorations for decorating your holiday that can help.
