There are many ways to make a bathroom a peaceful, calming place. Here are 5 easy ways to make yours a a little more lovely.

In my apartment, my tiny bathroom is my sanctuary (and yes, those are pictures of kitten paws on my walls). I take a bath almost every night and it’s such a beautiful place to start my morning routine. Here are a few tips to turn your bathroom into a lovely, peaceful place.

Add Plants and Flowers

Adding a little greenery to a clean bathroom makes it feel even more clean and fresh. I wanted a stainless steel planter for this sweet little ivy, but I could only find ones that were really expensive.

So I made this little hanging planter from a bowl I got at IKEA, and 4 chains. It turned out so sweetly!

White as Your Color Base

Color in the bathroom can be fun, but for me personally, white surfaces are so calming and feel clean.

If you have a white bathroom, or can paint your walls white, it may seem boring, but with the right design touches in the room, and a delicate color for your towels like sage, powder blue, light lavender or pale peach, you can really turn your bathroom into such a peaceful place.

Tiny, Peaceful Details

Even if you have a small bathroom, as long as it’s not cluttered with products, hair dryers or shavers, you can add the sweetest touches to inspire peace and relaxation.

A bouquet of dry or fresh flowers, hanging plants, photography and figures that inspire relaxation or inspiration can add so much to a simple, clean bathroom.

A Little Candle Light

Another very important aspect of a peaceful bathroom is light. Make sure your lightbulbs flatter you, and if you have space, add a few candles. Lighting a few candles while I take a bath completely transforms the space into a cathedral of peace.

Healthy Products

Get rid of those highly scented, formaldehyde-spiked products. They’re bad for your skin, they’re bad for your hair – and just like you are what you eat, you are what you moisturize with.

I’m not saying go on a shopping spree at Goop, but try to find products with as little fragrances, dyes, and harmful chemicals for both your body and the environment as possible. The products you use contribute to the overall peacefulness of your space, as well as your health and life.
