A guest bathroom is a wonderful addition to any house, giving you that extra space when needed and helping to ensure that your guests feel welcome in the home. But if you’re truly trying to create a welcoming space for guests, it’s important to put some thought into how you style the guest bathroom. With that said, here’s a look at some of the most trendy and functional ways to style your bathroom for visitors.

Create a Fresh and Modern Looking Design

The first thing that you want to do is ensure the space feels fresh and modern. This needs to start by doing a massive declutter. There should be no personal items and toiletries out, so this may require you to re-think your storage options. This is also a great time to boost the amount of natural and artificial light in the space to create a cleaner look.

If you want to take things further and don’t mind doing some renovations, you may want to paint the bathroom. Several colors are known for helping a bathroom to feel bright, open, clean, and modern. These colors include:

    • White
    • Grey
    • Pale blue
    • Beige
    • Off-white
    • Pale green

Greenery Will Give the Space Life

Greenery is another great addition to the bathroom, as it gives it a sense of natural beauty and life. It also helps to create a more tranquil and spa-like vibe. Depending on how the bathroom is set up and the size of the window (if applicable), you may not get a lot of natural light in the space. This is something you need to be mindful of when choosing the ideal indoor plants.

Some plants that can do well in low-light, warm and humid indoor conditions include:

    • Bird’s Nest Fern
    • Air Plants
    • Pothos
    • Staghorn Fern
    • Aloe Vera
    • Chinese Evergreen
    • Calathea “Freddie”

Each of these plants is relatively low maintenance and you can choose a decorative pot that works with the rest of the décor.

Upgrade to Luxury Scents – Soap, Hand Cream and Candles

A guest bathroom is also the place to be a bit indulgent when it comes to scents. Rather than those that can be overpowering and artificial, choose high-end luxury options that use excellent quality ingredients. For example, Byredo is known for its exquisite collection of high-end hand soap, candles, hand cream, home fragrance and more. This is a Scandinavian company that specializes in luxury ingredients and fragrances meant to elicit an array of emotions. You can find a whole host of options here on the Ssense website. It’s a great way to treat your guests to an elegant experience.

The Towels Need to Be Plush and Sophisticated

Guest towels are one of the most important items to outfit the bathroom with, and this isn’t an area you want to skimp on. Spending a little extra money on high-end towels that are plush and thick will go a long way in impressing guests. You’ll also find that these tend to hold up much better over time, washing up well. In choosing the color of the towels you can opt for a modern or neutral color palette that works with the other elements in the bathroom, or they can be the pop of color that gives the room interest.

If the space allows, you can also consider installing a towel drying/heating bar. There’s something really special about stepping out of the bath or shower and wrapping yourself in a toasty warm towel.

Hang an Oversized Decorative Mirror

No bathroom is complete without a bathroom mirror and, ideally, you want to pick one that is large and makes a statement. You also want to be sure that it doesn’t distort the image in any way as some geometric designs can.

Make Sure the Essentials are Well-Stocked

There is nothing worse than going into the bathroom only to find that the essentials are empty, such as the hand soap, toilet paper, shampoo and so forth. Before your guests arrive, make sure you top everything up so there are plenty of fresh supplies. Overnight guests can also appreciate such thoughtful travel-sized items as toothpaste, mouthwash, cotton pads and cotton swabs, dental floss, shampoo and conditioner, and body wash. It will feel like a luxury hotel room.

Provide Privacy with Their Own Bathroom

For homeowners with more than one bathroom, it’s a nice gesture to give your guests privacy by giving them their own bathroom to use.

Give the Bathroom a Deep Cleaning in Advance

The final tip is to ensure you give the bathroom a good deep cleaning before your guests arrive. You want the space to be sparkling clean so that they feel comfortable. Deep cleaning means giving everything a good scrubbing, including the floors, baseboards, shower walls and bathtub.

Using all of these tips will ensure you create a bathroom is that is welcoming to your guests.
