Some people have a knack for making every room in their house feel beautifully and effortlessly put together, but the truth is it takes time and effort to make a space work. This is especially true in bathrooms, which are regularly used but frequently overlooked.

Think about it: not only are you in and out of your bathroom several times a day, guests you have over—whether for a couple of hours or a couple of days—are too. That’s why a beautiful bathroom is so important! Here are five easy ways to take your bathroom to a new level.

Pick and stick with a theme

One of the easiest ways to make your bathroom feel more cohesive is with a theme. It doesn’t have to be elaborate or complicated; something as simple as a color, location, or type (think beach or farmhouse) works perfectly. Once you’ve picked your theme, it’s time to shop with your theme in mind. It doesn’t have to happen all at once, but whenever you’re out shopping, keep an eye out for touches and pieces that will tie it all together. You never know when you’ll stumble on a soap dish that’s the perfect shade of blue or a piece of art that goes perfectly with your ocean-themed bathroom. If you are always on the hunt for the next item that fits your theme, you can collect everything you need to make the bathroom space perfect over time.

Make your shower the star

If there’s one thing the bathroom should do well, it’s provide an inviting shower. You spend a lot of time in there, which is why you should put extra effort into making the shower space special. One easy way to accomplish that is by updating the faucet and shower head. Everyone enjoys high-end shower heads you find in many hotels, so why not get one for your home shower too? You can also install hooks, shelves, and baskets for organizing your shower supplies.

Another tip? Ditch the shower curtain! Gone are the days of saggy shower curtains that create mildew and grime. Selecting an upscale shower door will not only make your bathroom feel luxurious and glamorous, it will also make your shower easier to use and care for.

Play with different textures

Humans are naturally tactile creatures, and that’s why we find a variety of textures appealing. Some textures are obvious, like soft towels and smooth tile. But consider how you can incorporate unique elements into your bathroom. A shag bathroom rug might add interest to your floor. Interesting stonework within your shower or on the floors and walls can add a fun rustic touch. Upscale shower doors can provide the perfect balance of sophistication and utility. Mirrors bring a whole new texture of their own, so play around with mirror framing and positioning.

Clear up the clutter

Clutter will instantly detract from your theme. Utilize cabinets and the space below your sink to store products out of sight. If you find yourself needing more storage room, consider installing some shelves or extra cupboards. The same goes for your shower products. You might think your collection of shampoos and body washes is hidden by your fancy shower door, but make sure your shower is organized for any potential guests (plus it will be easier for you to find what you need). Try a shower basket to keep everything neat and organized.

Along these same lines, keeping your bathroom clean really elevates the space. You don’t have to mop every single day, but regular cleaning will really make a difference. Guests will certainly notice when you take the extra time to polish the faucets, scrub the baseboards, and wipe the shower door.

Make it personal

Most importantly, you should bring a bit of “you” into your bathroom! Your unique style and interests will help make your bathroom into a space that everyone will enjoy. Whether it’s your favorite piece of art, a houseplant you adore, or even just a touch of your favorite color, personalizing your bathroom is an easy and simple way to step up the style. Friends and family will feel right at home when they see your personality shining through in your decor!
