Whether staging your Houston home to sell or simply styling your home for yourself, your family and any visiting guests, minimalism and decluttering are key for bathroom styling.
Do you feel comfortable walking into a bathroom with the toothbrushes and makeup lying around? Contrast this to your arrival in a hotel bathroom where clear countertops host a few neatly aligned products and fresh fluffy folded towels. We know what we prefer. Here we are going to share some of our top home staging styling tips to recreate that fresh hotel-inspired bathroom styling at home.
Fresh, Fluffy Towels
Add luxurious hand and bath towels to soften the space. Furthermore, this is an opportunity to add a pop of brighter color to neutral colored walls and tiling.
Hang towels loosely for a relaxed look or fold neatly and overlap on a rail for a layered look. If your bathroom does not have a hand towel hook, roll it neatly and display on the vanity.
Bathroom Styling Products
Display a few practical, but attractive styling products on the vanity, ledges or built-in nooks. We love to layer and cluster our accessories. Host these on a tray that compliments the finish of the countertop such as wood, marble or ceramic. On the tray display hand soap (we love Aesop for the most incredible scent), hand lotion, and, in these post pandemic days, a neat bottle of hand sanitizer.
For a refreshing touch you would only find in the most luxurious hotels, add some real live greenery.
A small potted plant or hanging plant for a touch of nature will take your bathroom to the next level. We love using orchids or freshly picked roses for a beautiful scent. If you’re using fresh flowers, display these in a small vase. The fragrance of fresh flowers is inviting to both guests and touring would be buyers and is less cloying and artificial than standard air fresheners.
Whether free-standing or built-in, baths have become a real statement piece in the minds of trend loving homebuyers recently.
The most important thing when staging a bath is that it is sparkling clean. To get an older bath looking like new again start off by giving it a good scrub with a restorative bath cleaner like the Better Life Natural Tub and Tile Cleaner, which we love as it is not only very effective but it’s very eco-friendly and makes use of tea tree oil and eucalyptus which are both naturally antibacterial and smell wonderful too!
If your bath doesn’t have recessed shelving consider adding a small stool to sit beside your bath. Marble provides a luxe look or opt for a water resistant wood if you prefer a natural look. When displaying multiple products for staging purposes – or for your own use, create a neat, tidy and organized appearance by grouping them on a tray.
Homebuyers are looking for great bathrooms that look relaxing and inviting, but they are also looking for bathrooms with lots of storage options. In fact, great bathrooms need good storage in general, which is a problem if you do not have a lot of built in storage in your bathroom(s).
There are some simple solutions you can employ though that can be as stylish as they are practical. Over the door solutions can add some much-needed storage and yet still be very stylish, as can a properly staged over the toilet shelf.
