Preparing Your Bathroom for Entertaining Season

From on November 06, 2008 in General Remodel

Yes, the seasons are a-changing and entertaining and family visits are just around the corner. You’ve pulled down the boxes from the attic or storage room and have started with fall holiday decorating. Of course, it only goes on from there, from one month to the next, practically until spring. Looking around for ideas, I found a great little site for the most outrageous bathrooms. Though a little crazy, it could provide some little bits of fun for decorating your bathroom. Check it out at HGTV: Special Features. At the least, it will be entertaining. I do have a few suggestions of my own to offer. You can change up the whole look of your bathroom with just a few on-hand supplies. Play around with different colors, shapes, and sizes, and in moments, your bathroom can go from your usual decor to one with a special theme:

  • Soaps
  • Throw rugs
  • Hand towels and racks
  • Candles and holders
  • Plants (artificial or real), pots for plants
  • Potpourri dishes and potpourri
  • Matching accessory pieces—toothbrush holder, cup, soap dish, lotion dispenser, etc.
  • Shower curtain and clips
  • Wall decor—hangings, plaques, etc.
  • Toilet seat cover
  • Room freshener to fit the season, such as pine, cinnamon, pumpkin


With these and your own little touches, such as ornaments, garlands, or twinkle lights, you will change your bathroom from the everyday room to the perfect transformation for entertaining.
