5 Tips for a Simple and Elegant Bathroom

Give your bathroom a relaxing upgrade with these helpful hints


For ladies who work from 9 to 5 --- coming home to a serene home is the perfect reward. At home, the bathroom is the woman's sanctuary. It can give her privacy while getting ready in the morning or while winding down after a long day’s work. It is a place that gives her peace and quiet and lets her relax and rejuvenate. 

Transform your bathroom into a calming space with these tips:

Add a touch of floral.

Don’t go overboard with the flowers. Aside from the fresh cuts, a simple floral print on the shower curtain is enough for the whole room.

Set the mood.

Light up scented candles and let the power of aromatherapy work its magic on you. You can also have some soothing sounds playing in the background while you take a bath. (Just make sure to hide unsightly stereos and speakers.)

Use beautiful things.

The lady of the house deserves pretty things. Glass containers and ceramic pots show that a girl who cares for herself also cares about her surroundings. The fresh flowers add a nice touch.


Beautiful gift boxes such as this from Victoria’s Secret can be reused as storage containers for items such as Velcro rollers and brushes. Can’t wait for more gifts? Get a set of boxes that fits this simple and elegant theme.

Go natural.

The wicker basket is a great alternative to the more popular plastic hamper. It hides dirty laundry while still allowing it to breathe so clothes don’t start smelling bad.
