If you are updating your home, one room that is sure to give away your fixer-upper status is the bathroom. Bedrooms, hallways, and even closets are easy to give a quick updated look. Similar to the kitchen, the bathroom requires a bit more work. Which typically means a bit more money. This is when I turn to DIY projects! A simple, DIY Bathroom Decor Ideas search can lead you to some of the most creative ideas.

We are starting big and going small. I love this ladder because it does two things. First, it creates some beautiful floor to ceiling storage. Second, it is such a statement piece! Especially difficult to do in a bathroom!


  1. Over The Toilet Storage

Via Ana White

If you like the idea but you are working with limited space, try the same ladder concept but over a toilet. Great statement piece while utilizing all the space available!

  1. Toilet Paper Holder Shelf

Leave your phone here so it doesn’t drop in the toilet! Add a candle, some potpourri, or small plant. It is a quick and easy way to add some beauty to what is traditionally an eyesore.

Lose the shelf and go for just plain pretty toilet paper! Again, toilet paper display options often bring the value of a bathroom down, so don’t neglect this space!

I love this DIY because this is the only blogger I saw utilizing this idea! I have white tile and the last thing I want to do is make my bathroom a huge project by removing all the tile. With just a bit of creativity, you can update the space! I was shook at how easy it is!

If it is a master bathroom you are redoing, go for this adorable dual sink! A bit easier since the design is very simple, but what makes it great are the decorations around it, bringing it to life!

That other item my home cannot live without? Lots of candles means I have a ton of candle holders. I can send them to be recycled, or I can recycle them myself! Perfect for those smaller bathroom items, like Q-tips and bobby pins.

This one is more for the organization but it is a pretty DIY as well. I use this to help manage my shampoo bottle usage. If I don’t I get carried away, and next thing I know, my various bathroom products have taken over the entire shower. Also check out the tankless heater for your bathroom to save up some space.
