When decorating your home, one of the spaces that can sometimes be overlooked is the guest bathroom. You may not use it yourself very frequently, meaning you aren’t thinking about how to improve it as often as other spaces.
Making your guest bathroom a place that your guests feel pampered is a great way to make sure they feel welcome in your home. Consider these tips as you decorate your guest bathroom:
- Choose Neutral Colors
Sticking with a neutral color pallet will make the space inviting without being too overpowering. You can always add a pop of color with a fun accent like a painting or hand towels.
- Make sure the entire room is sparkling clean.

- Add a pop of color to the bathroom with a vase of fresh flowers.
No one has ever been upset to find their space brightened with some fresh flowers. Flowers are a great way to add color to a neutral bathroom, and it also offers a subtle, inviting scent to the room.
- Add a decorative and pleasant-smelling candle to the space.
Candles are a great way to encourage a warm and cozy environment in the bathroom, whether your guests are indulging in an evening bath or just getting ready for their day.
- Provide bathroom essentials.
No matter how organized your visitors are, it’s likely they’ll have forgotten to pack something. Having the essentials on hand will make their lives easier. Fill a basket or the bathroom vanity with cotton balls, toothpaste, toothbrushes and razors. This is a great way to make use of any hotel-sized bottles of shampoo or conditioner you may have picked up during your own travels!
- A nice shower curtain and bathmat can go a long way.
If your guest bathroom is sporting worn or dated accessories like the shower curtain and bathmat, consider replacing them. Learn how to choose and care for a new shower curtain and consider replacing the bathmat with a super-plush one that will feel luxurious.
- High quality towels make anyone feel pampered.
While you surely want to pamper yourself with nice thick towels, make sure to have some for your guests also – including towels, washcloths and hand towels. Consider buying a set of guest towels in a different color from your everyday towels to make sure you’ll always have them ready for when guests come to stay.
- Don’t forget the laundry basket!
As space allows, provide guests with a basket or bin for stashing used towels and linens. This will help keep the space nice and tidy during their stay.
- Create a spa-like atmosphere for a vacation bath.
If your guest bathroom has a bathtub, fill an attractive basket with an assortment of products to treat your guests to a spa-like experience. Sea sponges, bath salts, loofahs and bath brushes are fun amenities that will have your guests feeling like they’re at a spa or high-end hotel!
