When Old Man Winter is howling outside, it’s time to make your home feel festive and cozy. Decorating your bathroom with seasonal accessories is a fun way to add holiday cheer to your home. You’ll instantly spruce up your space and create a warm, welcoming shower experience that you and your guests can luxuriate in all winter.

Discover how you can bring the magic of winter into your bathroom with these three decorating themes.


Winter Wonderland

Shower with calacatta crema walls

Few things capture the imagination and create a sense of wonder like an enchanted winter wonderland. An all-white bathroom is the perfect backdrop for this transformation with its monochromatic color palette. Playing around with texture keeps the design from feeling too stark and instead evokes a sense of calm and peace.

Enchanting Winter Bathroom Decor:

  • White and Silver Color Palette: Stick to winter colors like sparkling silver, cool grey and frosty white to recreate the elegance and beauty of a snowy winter landscape.
  • Metallic Accents: Bring the holiday sparkle to your bathroom with shiny accessories like a shimmery wreath on the wall, a glittery snowflake shower curtain, tinsel hung across the vanity mirror and decorative mercury glass vases on the counter.
  • Twinkle Lights: To complete the winter fairytale scene, give your vanity a soft glow with the help of string lights around the mirror.

Cozy Cabin

When the weather outside is frightful, make your bathroom feel as cozy and warm as a rustic winter cabin. Infusing nature into your design will bring a homey, nostalgic feel into your space.

Cabin Bathroom Decor

  • Nature-Inspired Decor: Incorporate woodsy elements such as a simple evergreen arrangement with pinecones and faux berries, garland over the bathroom counter and decor of woodland animals like cardinals and deer to achieve a wintery cottage look.
  • Winter-Scented Candles: Practice self-care by lighting candles during shower time. To combat the winter chill, choose woodsy fragrances like sandalwood, patchouli or cedarwood, or spicy scents like spiced cider, roasted chestnuts and cinnamon.
  • Holiday Plants: Liven up your bathroom with winter plants that bring colorful greetings for an extra festive look. Great additions include amaryllis, holly, a Christmas cactus or poinsettias.

Merry & Bright Contemporary Retreat

Boost your holiday spirit with pops of festive decorations in your contemporary bathroom. This minimalist design style calls for following the “less is more” rule to avoid overwhelming the space. It’s a good idea to pick a few holiday pieces that blend with the elements already existing in the space and build from there.

Merry Retreat Decor

  • Vanity Accents: Give your bathroom vanity some sparkle with charming decorations like garland or a decorative piece across your mirror, mini Christmas trees on the counter and ornaments hanging over the door. 
  • Colorful Towels: Getting out of the shower is extra fun when you swap your everyday towels for holiday-themed ones. Add a pop of color with a fun pattern or a bold winter hue like dark green, red or navy.
  • Winter Potpourri: Keep your bathroom smelling fresh with holiday-scented potpourri. Citrus, ginger, vanilla and cinnamon fragrances can remind you of baking holiday goods. Place your potpourri in a seasonal container like a cookie tin, winter-themed basket or fancy chalice.
