Because bathrooms often have neutral colour schemes, one of the best ways to add some flavour and colour is through the use of bath linens. By merely swapping out your bath mats and towels for newer, brighter models, you can easily turn a bland, all-white bathroom into a relaxing spa retreat or a colourful, kid-friendly haven. Here's how to effectively decorate with towels, bath mats and shower curtains.
Buy towel and bath mat sets to ensure cohesiveness.
Instead of trying to piece together a collection one by one, invest in a towel set, which often includes multiple hand towels, washcloths and full-sized towels. If you need more than one bath mat, try to find a matching pair so they don't clash. Although the towels and bath mats don’t need to be matchy-matchy, they should be complementary colours or include only one pattern; after all, you don’t want the room to appear too busy or overwhelming, especially if it’s a small space.
Invest in a high-quality shower curtain and liner.
Once you have the perfect towels and mats, be sure to pick out a shower curtain that blends well with your other colours. Even though there are a lot of beautifully patterned shower curtains out there, be wary: Because of its larger surface area, a complex, multicoloured curtain can appear gaudy or over the top. Once you’ve found the perfect fit, keep it nice and clean for years to come by purchasing a shower liner to act as a water barrier.
