Who said that there’s no such thing as festive spirit anymore? Just walk to into any family home today and you will see that the Christmas spirit is still alive and well! At this time of year many of us are decking the halls and making our homes look as cozy and welcoming as possible. However, the bathroom is a place that is often disregarded when it comes to decorating our homes for the holidays. We decorate everywhere else in our homes – including the garden! Yet leaving the bathroom holiday-free is the norm in many homes.

So why don’t you dare to be different by having the bathroom decorated in a festive style?

Festive Scenes

For a start, you can create a point of focus in the bathroom by putting up some holiday pictures; many people already have some calming, placid scenes displayed in their bathrooms, so why not replace these with more festive artwork over the holidays? Many stores now also stock Christmas themed shower curtains, toilet paper and hand towels if you want to go all out this year!


Our sense of smell is also very important, and many people already use scented candles, aromatic oils and bowls of potpourri to create a pleasant ambiance in the bathroom. You can pick up Christmas versions of all these things that have a ‘festive spice’ scent to them so you can keep the holiday spirit going throughout your entire home.


Lighting is the hallmark of Christmas décor, both inside and outside, so get yourself a hanging wall candle sconce for the bathroom which can hold your festive scented candles. If there is enough space in the bathroom a small Christmas tree can even be added!


Accessories that keep the Christmas spirit going can be put on display, and all your year-round accessories can safely be tucked away: your everyday toilet paper holder may have to be replaced with a new reindeer holder. Of course, be careful of any decorations that are made of paper or card as the moisture present in the bathroom means that they won’t survive the season!
