Basic Bathroom Makeover

Updated on June 4, 2014

Bathroom Makeover

It's nice to give a room in your home a new look by adding color and changing up the decor; even rearranging furniture. It gives it a fresh look. With small rooms such as a bathroom just by adding your own touches it can look great.

In this lens lets take a look at the bathroom in this photo. This is a simple looking bathroom that needs a little color and love. This is what it looked like before I added my own shower curtain, wall hangings and rugs. This particular bathroom was in our last house we had before the one we live in now. Although moving is never a easy chore the rooms are empty so you can stand there an imagine how you want to decorate it. Even after you've lived there awhile you might want to give it another makeover just to freshened up the style a bit.

You'll find in this lens photo's and how I did up my bathroom with my own color's and style. It's just simple and basic. There just ideas to get you thinking even more outside the box. Everyone has there own styles. At the end is video on how to decorate your bathroom in a Tiffany's at Breakfast style!

Photo is taken by ME!

Let's Get Started!

Makeover List

First you need to pick out what color or style you want to do your bathroom up in. Bright, natural or maybe something in between. What will your theme be; maybe choose your own style of something you really love.

  • Shower curtain
  • Wall hangings
  • Toilet holders
  • Sink accessories
  • Matching towels
  • Shower Caddy's
  • Rugs

Blue Decorating Makeover

Shower and Sink Decor

Blue with a lighthouse touch

My decorating is just simple and not fancy. A basic style to make it look nice with a added touch of what I like or things I collect.

My colors are blue and brown tones for my bathroom. My theme is lighthouses. Actually I'm going to center it around the Michigan lighthouses since I have my own pictures to hang up of them. I framed post cards of the lighthouses and the beach. I hung them by the mirror and sink. I picked out a blue/brown striped shower curtain. In my shower is a stylish white caddy hanging from the shower head filled with our shower accessories. On the sink is a white toothbrush holder and a blue candle in the corner along with other personal accessories on the counter.

Wall and Window Decor

Out To Sea Touch


On the wall across from the bathtub and toilet I hung up two special hangings. One of a sail boat that my Mom made when I was younger which is shown here next to this text; the other of a cross stitch I made of a sailor looking out to sea. I laid down blue rugs; one in front of the sink and the other around the toilet. Also near the toilet is a small timeless white garbage can. I've hung blue towels to match the colors of the bathroom.


As you can tell by the photo's it is a small bathroom and space is limited so decorating it simple and with a sheer curtain gives it light and seems bigger as opposed to a dark curtain that would make it feel smaller and confined.

Purple Decorating Makeover

Purple Roses


After you've decided that the blue is enough; its time to change up the look of your bathroom as I did. i decided to change it up with purple and flowers. The shower curtain has purple roses on it with a matching garbage can. The rugs are a pretty purple plush. Sitting on the back of the toilet is a cow toilet paper holder. On the wall is a picture of a bathtub that was left in the house when we moved in. I just choose to keep with this purple after look. By the mirror is a ceramic mandolin with purple flowers that a friend made my Mom and was passed on to me.

      @ecogranny: Yellow does sound nice. I know what you mean about rentals. You just gotta works with what you can to decorate and make it look beautiful no matter what you can't change. Glad you liked my bathroom. I now have a frog theme since we've moved.

      Our bathroom is a soft, glowing, sunny yellow with white trim. I always feel at peace there and like it enough to enjoy cleaning it, except for the floor, which is not ours to change, and which I do not care for--teeny, tiny hexagonal white tiles with black grout, seen quite frequently in San Francisco rentals. Ugh! Fortunately, the shower tile is a lovely, clean, appealing off-white. Thanks for sharing your bath makeover tips.

      @Ibidii: Awesome! Thanks for commenting. Butterflies are really fun and beautiful to do. I like to change up my themes from time to time. I currently have frogs as a my latest theme. I have two bathrooms as well so I still do the lighthouse theme.

      Very nice CherylFay, I have the butterfly theme this time. I found some foam butterfly shapes that I will add some paint to them to match the butterflies that are on the shower curtain. I just took a photo for my lens on the cadillac bath chair. I would love the purple. My BFF loves the light house theme and so we all would give her items to match. Her shower curtain had different famous lighthouses on it.
