Whether you have overnight guests planning a visit or holiday parties on the horizon, decorating your bathroom for winter will definitely boost your host approval rating. Here are some subtle winter touches that will make your bathrooms feel more festive this season.
Give bathroom vanities and cabinets a holiday makeover.
The area above bathroom vanities and cabinets is prime real estate for bathroom decorating. Start by replacing your hand soap with one that has a holiday fragrance, like balsam and cedar or cinnamon. When guests wash their hands, they’ll immediately get in the holiday spirit. How great is that? Scented candles can also bring those nostalgic aromas to life and help you create the perfect winter ambiance in your bathroom. Put candles in pretty metallic votive holders and arrange them along the countertop of your bathroom cabinets. If your vanity’s countertops are spacious, add in some glass or mercury trees in between candles to create the perfect wintery display.
Light up your bathroom mirror in a whole new way.
Frame your bathroom mirror with tiny string lights and give the room a festive glow. You can also use a long strand of garland to create a border around your mirror — or place pieces of garland along the corners for a subtler look. To make your bathroom feel more like a winter wonderland, opt for garland that has faux snow clusters so your bathroom lighting will reflect off the details.
Swap out your shower curtain.
Bringing out the holiday towels is great, but why not try swapping out shower curtains as well? This is an easy way to create a cohesive seasonal theme without a lot of effort. When choosing your shower curtain, pick a print or pattern that matches your holiday towels, and bring it all together with a fluffy bath rug. If red and green clashes with your bathroom’s color scheme, opt for rich tones like dark blue or purple. You can also forget color entirely and go with a chic winter white theme. There are other ways to jazz up your shower curtain, like hanging ornaments on your shower curtain rings.
Give guests the white glove treatment.
If you want to be the host with the most, you have to focus on the little details. When the weather is cold, nothing is nicer than a warm towel. There are both freestanding and wall-mounted towel heating racks so you can find a model that fits perfectly with your bathroom layout.
Another way to give your bathroom that “something extra” is to set a waterproof shower radio to a holiday channel. Every time your guest walks in, they’ll be greeted by the comforting sounds of their favorite seasonal tunes and feel right at home.
Have your bathroom cabinets fully stocked with toiletries and other essentials.
There’s nothing worse than being away from home and finding yourself without mouthwash or a razor. Make sure your visitors have everything they need by filling a stocking with travel-sized toiletries and bathroom essentials. You can hang the stocking by a hook on the inside of a cabinet door, so your guest has no problem finding exactly what they’re looking for.
