I’ve found that people tend to overlook just how much time they spend in the bathroom; women especially, since we spend even more time in there doing our makeup and washing our faces every night. It makes sense, then, that our bathrooms should look aesthetically pleasing, be clean, and overall, be a welcoming, uncluttered room that we actually enjoy spending time in.
These 40 projects and tips will help you achieve exactly that.
I now know that the concept of love at first sight is real because I fell head over heels for this mat the second I laid eyes on it. The river stones almost give your feet a mini massage when you step on them. And this specific tutorial is very thorough and ensures that it’s not just pretty, but totally practical too.

DIY Air Freshener
If you want to make sure that your bathroom always smells fresh, you can make your own little air freshener tub. Baking soda will absorb any bad odors, while a few drops of essential oil will emit a subtle scent.

Bobby pins seem to be everywhere and nowhere in my house – sometimes they’re lying all around the place, and other times (when I really need them), they’re impossible to find. Keep yours together with a simple magnetic strip, which is also perfect for metal tweezers and nail clippers.
Tidy Up the Toothpaste
If you have kids, then you may struggle with keeping the sticky toothpaste residue off the sink and who knows where else. It gets pretty gross, and it just looks terrible. A clever way to combat this is to squeeze your toothpaste into a soap pump bottle! Genius, isn’t it?

PVC Toothbrush Holder
Don’ have enough counter space in your bathroom? If you don’t like the idea of an ugly cup sitting there to hold your toothbrush, you can really think outside the box and make hanging holders from PVC piping. I just love cheap and clever repurposing ideas like these!

Towel Bath Mat
As you know, I’m all about upcycling and repurposing, so this bath mat made from old towels is right up my alley. This is a perfect way to reuse your older, scraggly-looking towels and save them from the trash; not only does it look cute in the bathroom, but it really does the job in a luxurious manner.
DIY Shower Curtain
A fun shower curtain can make all the difference if you’re looking to make your bathroom look a little more fun or exciting. Pick your favorite inspirational or funny phrase and stencil it on to a regular shower curtain. This just gives you that little bit of personalization.
