Get the Luxury Hotel Bathroom Look for Less

Get the Luxury Hotel Bathroom Look for Less

Is your bathroom just “blah” and giving you the blues? Have you ever dreamed of having a bathroom that feels more relaxing and spa-like? Here are some fun and inexpensive bathroom ideas to help you create that luxe feel in your bathroom.

Declutter
Bathroom counters can become a resting place for makeup, hair styling tools, and personal care products. Organizing toiletries and hairdryers into cabinets and drawers will free up counter space creating a streamlined look.

An inexpensive wicker basket with a lid can serve as an attractive hamper to keep dirty clothes off the floor. Extra towel hooks on doors or walls will make sure wet towels and bathrobes have a place to hang.

Soft and Fluffy Towels

Think Soft and Fluffy
Make getting out of the bath or shower as comforting as getting in. Nothing will give you a resort feel in your bathroom more than stepping on a soft, cushy bathmat and wrapping yourself in a fluffy towel.

Many discount retail stores have a wonderful selection of luxe towels and bathmats at very affordable prices. Choose colors that are soft and neutral, or go for solid white to get a true hotel feel. A matching shower curtain in a rich-looking fabric can finish off the look.

Clean contemporary bathroom sink

Accessorize
A simple but coordinated look will help you achieve a relaxing feel in your bathroom. Use matching containers with neutral ceramic or glass canisters for holding necessities like cotton balls and Q-tips. A small decorative tray or bowl can be used to keep a collection of bath bombs, soaps, or oils in easy reach.

Place a few decorative touches around that express your personal style, such as a frame with a sentimental photo or a vase with flowers. Greenery or a plant can also be very soothing.

Lighting
Bright lights are great for putting makeup on, but nothing says relaxation like soft lighting. Place a dimmer switch on bathroom lights and you can opt for mood lighting for that soak in the tub.

If you can’t install a dimmer, candles can be a great substitute. If you have the counter space, a small decorative lamp with a pretty shade provides an option for subtle lighting.

Artwork
A large piece of art can be a great way to tie the room together. It can even be repurposed from another room in the house.

Another way to add a personal touch is to do a collage of smaller pieces. For example, if the bathroom has a beach theme, you could make an inexpensive collage of starfish and sand dollars purchased from a local craft store.

Vanity

Extra Touches
If you want to go the extra mile, you can invest in a curved shower rod that gives even a modest sized bathtub the feeling of extra room. A small stool or vanity bench can be added to provide a seated area while dressing or putting on makeup.
