Simple Ways To Make Your Bathroom More Inviting

Learn how to make your bathroom feel more inviting.
A few small changes to your bathroom decor can make a world of difference in its atmospheric mood. If your bathroom feels confined, unapproachable or simply "off," you should make update the decor to achieve a more inviting atmosphere. In this post, we're going to reveal several ways to make a bathroom look and feel more inviting.

Upgrade The Lighting

Arguably, one of the easiest and most effective ways to make a bathroom more inviting is to upgrade the lighting. Far too many homeowners overlook the importance of proper bathroom lighting, resulting in a dimly lit environment that takes away from its natural beauty. 

Consider using a larger, more prominent overhead light fixture in your bathroom. And if you really want to boost the decor while achieving a more inviting atmosphere, you can use an elegant crystal chandelier. Of course, secondary lighting -- wall sconces, track lighting, floor lamps, table lamps -- can also be used to boost the aesthetics of a bathroom.

Eliminate The Clutter

You can't expect to achieve an inviting atmosphere in your bathroom if it's filled with clutter. Whether it's dirty clothes, toiletries, towels, unnecessary furniture, or a combination of all the above, you must eliminate clutter from your bathroom. Allowing an abundance of unnecessary items clutter your bathroom creates a negative, uninviting mood.

So, what's the best approach to eliminating clutter in the bathroom? It really depends on the size of your bathroom along with the current storage options. If you don't have enough space to stash all of your necessary belongings, try installing a new shelving system and/or over-the-toilet space saver.

Inviting Color Palette

Another simple way to create a more inviting bathroom is to paint the walls a warm, vibrant color. Whether it's light blue, champagne, emerald, yellow, rose, etc., warm colors naturally have a positive impact on the room's mood. Painting the walls in warm colors is a quick and easy way to improve the decor while making it feel more inviting.

It's important to note that white is not an inviting color. Don't make the all-too-common mistake of leaving your walls white, as this will have the opposite effect by negatively impacting your bathroom's mood.
