Floor Rugs

Rugs on bathroom floors are gaining in popularity. There are stores that offer rugs in a great variety of patterns, smooth fabrics, warmth, and colors, for creating a cozy feeling for your feet.

The next option is bamboo. Although it is a durable material, it is not as soft as cotton. If your bathroom has a lot of people coming in and out, go for the polyester rug since it is the most durable. Do not fall just for the design and color. Every bathroom rug has to possess high slip resistance. This is achieved if the rug is lined with either anti-skid material or rubber.

Shower Curtain

Shower curtains are good because they add a splash of color and liven up the bathroom, create the illusion of height and can make your bathroom look luxurious. Mount the curtain rod near the ceiling for a more extravagant look. Instead of traditional shower curtain, you can use a curtain panel.

Decorative Accessories

This is where your inner DIY comes into place. Pinterest has many options for creating your own luxurious crafts, all you need to do is buy the material and follow the instructions.
