If you’re looking to revamp your bathroom, it’s hard to know where to start. 

You don’t want to spend a fortune. But at the same time, it’s important to you to make the interior look lovely. It is, after all, where you spend time getting ready and taking relaxing baths. The ambiance is essential, and so is infusing creative elements! 

You may already have some elements you’d like to keep, but there’s always room for more. To switch things up, be open to change by keeping your eyes out for unique elements. Here are seven items that’ll bring flair to your bathroom. 

1. Glass Toothbrush Holder

A glass toothbrush holder looks modern and will blend in with any decor. When looking for a toothbrush holder, stay away from the ones with a top with holes. It’s harder to keep clean. But, if you’re sharing it with a significant other, it may be necessary to keep the toothbrushes separated. 

A glass holder is also simple to wash. It’s much easier to throw it in the dishwasher than other holders. You can hand wash some holders, but it’s time-consuming, and still, after a while, it won’t look nice. That’s why a glass holder is more practical. 

Although, the one negative thing about having something glass is that it can break. It’s wise to put it in a safe spot — otherwise, it’ll be a pain to clean it up! 

2. Bathroom Accessories Jar Set

Keep things uniform in your bathroom by getting an accessories jar set. 

A jar set is a lot better than having everything spread out. As you’re getting ready, you may struggle to find what you need. And if you’re in a rush — that’s not a good scenario! 

Instead, stick with a jar set. You can keep everything together. 

Here are some ideas on what to put in a jar set: 

  • Q-tips
  • Toothbrush holder
  • Soap dispenser 
  • Cotton balls
  • Hair ties 
  • Makeup brushes

Of course, you can put other bathroom accessories in there as well. It depends on the set you buy since some suit different purposes. But these items will give you ideas on what to put in each jar. 

Your main goal should be to keep everything together. Find a set that’ll make it easy for you to keep everything organized. You’ll be happy you made it a priority.

3. Wood Decor 

Put some stylish yet affordable decor in your bathroom. The wooden pieces will complement other items in your bathroom since they’re in a neutral shade. 

Consider getting a wood sign that says “flush.” Or, go with a wooden sign that’s more humorous. You’re sure to get a chuckle when adding a sign that says, “Please stay seated during the entire performance!” 

Are you wondering where to put a wooden sign in your bathroom? 

It would look nice on a floating shelf or the wall behind a toilet.

4. Vinyl Shower Curtain

You may currently have a fabric shower curtain with a liner. While it looks nice, the liner inside is more likely to get mildew on it more quickly. The fabric curtain doesn’t allow a lot of sunlight in, which traps moisture on the inside. 

Whereas with a vinyl shower liner, you’re less likely to deal with mildew. Or, at the very least, it’ll take a while to form.

But mildew aside, a vinyl shower curtain is also durable and can look modish too! It’s an easy way to dress up a shower. 

Get one in a fun design, such as with florals. You’ll have a blast jazzing up your bathroom with this simple and affordable accessory! 

5. String Lights

When you think of string lights, putting them in a bathroom may not come to mind.

But string lights can create the right ambiance for taking a warm bath and winding down in the evening. 

It’s best to put your lights in an area that won’t get in the way of you getting ready. Plug them in and attach them in the corner of the bathroom so they won’t take over. 

You could also drape them over a picture, but make sure they won’t get too hot. It could be a fire hazard! 

6. Heart-Shaped Bathroom Rug

No bathroom is complete without at least one or two rugs. Comfort is vital, but a chic rug can still be on top of your list! 

If you don’t want an ordinary rug in your bathroom, get one in the shape of a heart! 

A fluffy heart-shaped rug will feel fabulous on your feet. And it will blend in well with a well-decorated bathroom. 

Look for a heart-shaped rug that’s soft too. Fashion plus comfort is essential when looking for the perfect rug! 

7. Modern Waste Basket

When in the bathroom, it can get annoying having to take your trash into the kitchen. That’s why it’s much more convenient to throw something away when a wastebasket is right there. 

As long as you don’t mind having to empty another trash can, having one in your bathroom is convenient. 

Get a small modern wastebasket so you can throw away kleenex and other items in the bathroom. There are plenty of fancy wastebaskets to choose from that’ll blend in with the rest of your decor! 


Adding new accessories and decorations can genuinely transform your bathroom. From wooden signs to a heart-shaped rug, the room will look amazing! 

What’s ideal about accessories is you don’t have to sacrifice functionality for style. There’s no shortage of decor that’ll suit both purposes! 

Get to work on creating a bathroom with the right amount of accessories. As long as you like how it looks, that’s all that matters!
