Decorating Your Bathroom for Thanksgiving

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

With fall in full swing, it’s time to start decorating your home for the season if you haven’t already. Bathrooms are an area of the home that some people overlook in regards to decoration. Even if your bathroom is small, you can still incorporate festive decorations into your space. You can add a few simple touches or go for an all-out Thanksgiving theme in your bathroom. Here are our decorating tips to get ready for the season:

Hand TowelsDecorating Your Bathroom for Thanksgiving-shutterstock_477341071-1024x683

One of the simplest ways to decorate your bathroom for Thanksgiving is seasonal towels and washcloths. You can purchase Thanksgiving-themed bathroom décor almost anywhere. Choose linens decorated with things like turkeys, pilgrims, leaves, and cornucopias. For a more subtle look, simply replace your current towels with new orange, yellow, and red ones to fit the color scheme of fall.

If your bathroom has a window, find new curtains that coordinate with your new towels and linens. This will ensure that your color scheme is cohesive and that everything goes well together.

Candles, Candles, Candles

Another great idea is to place seasonally-scented candles, such as pumpkin or spiced apple, in your bathroom. You can light them every day or just for special occasions or when guests are over. Smells and scents can remind people of holidays past and build a festive ambiance.  To take things a step further, invest in candles that crackle and make bonfire-like noises to give your bathroom a cozy feel.

If you don’t want to invest in candles or are looking for something a little more outside the box, incense is also a great way to give your space a comforting smell. To avoid flames entirely, invest in a seasonal plug-ing. This will provide consistent bursts of scent throughout the day and you won’t have to worry about blowing anything out before you leave.

Soaps and other Scents

Seasonal hand-soaps are another fun way to decorate your bathroom. Try to “shop local” when it comes to this part of decorating. Finding cute boutiques and small vendors near your home will ensure that your soaps are unique and hand-made, giving your bathroom a warm and welcoming feel. Add a decorative soap dish and make this a focal point of fall display for your bathroom.

For an added bonus, find a nice fall themed lotion to put next to your sink as well. This time of the year is the perfect storm for dry skin and cracked hands. Help your guests out with a nice, soothing lotion.

Lighting

The lighting in your bathroom can also be changed for the holiday. You can purchase a seasonal night light for a small touch. For a more bold change, you can swap out the light bulbs in your bathroom to a soft orange. You can also put up string lights around your bathroom mirror. Choose from orange lights or ones that are shaped like pumpkins or turkeys. Another lighting idea is to place lanterns with either real or electric candles in them. Place a string of fall leaves and small pumpkins and gourds around the base to make it more fall appropriate.

Pumpkins and Gourds

One of the absolute easiest ways to decorate any space for the Thanksgiving and fall season is to stack up on pumpkins and gourds. You can choose varying colors, shapes, and sizes and arrange them in a fun fall display. For an extra fun touch, tie orange and gold ribbons around their stems. Pumpkins and gourds are cheap decor and will give your space an authentic feel.

There are many other simple touches you can add to your bathroom to decorate for Thanksgiving. Swap out any wall hangings you have for wall art featuring fall leaves, turkeys, pumpkins, and other harvest-related items.

If you have enough shelf or counter space, you can choose any of these super simple DIY projects:

  •       Fill a vase or urn with dried or artificial flowers such as sunflowers or mums. You will want to stick with a red, yellow, orange, brown, or deep purple palette. You can include small cornstalks or even cattails to help add dimension to your arrangement.
  •       Fill a glass vase or other type of container with pinecones.
  •       Fill a basket with pumpkins, gourds, and small cornstalks.
  •       Hang a welcome sign on the outside of your bathroom door that has a Thanksgiving theme.
  •       Hang doorknob decorations on the outside or inside of your bathroom door. Some decorations have bells inside them for extra effect.

There’s no better way to get into the festive fall spirit than by surrounding yourself with fall decorations. Incorporating pumpkin scents and autumn colors will give your home a feeling of warmth and comfort for the entire fall season. Follow our favorite decorating tips to spice up your bathroom for the fall season.

Linens and CurtainsHow to Decorate Your Bathroom for Fall-shutterstock_750019069-1024x683

One quick and easy way to transition your bathroom décor is to change your linens and curtains for the new season. When you begin to make your shift to the fall season, start with your curtains, linens, and bath rugs. After summer, trade those bright, beach colored towels, and curtains for more subdued tones. Popular colors for fall tend towards neutrals, but if you’d like to add splashes of color consider burnt orange, mustard yellow, medium to dark greens, and a deep purple. The new colors will instantly give your space a whole new feel.

Seasonal Fragrances

The ambiance of a room isn’t complete without a nice, seasonal scent. Stock up on pumpkin spice everything. Candles, soaps, incense, and air fresheners are all great ways to incorporate smell into your space. Scents like wood fire, oak, cedar, and sandalwood are all great places to start. For a sweeter smell, try pumpkin, chai, apple pie, and cinnamon.

Updated Fixtures

As you update your bathroom’s scents and linens, you might also realize it is a good time to update the room’s fixtures. You may want to install new faucets, sinks, or shower heads. Bronzed fixtures are not only perfect for the fall season but remain a timeless and classic look all year round.

Add Accessories

With the larger items now in place and the scent of fall in the air, you can take the final step and add the finishing touch of accessories to your bathroom. These are the minor details that really pull a room together. Perhaps you might like a basket on the back of the toilet. Craft pinecones or greenery add additional seasonal elements to unify the space.

Giving your bathroom a fall makeover will put you in the mood for the season and is a great way to make your home feel welcoming and festive. For decorating, remodeling, and all of your other bathroom needs call the experts at Luxury Bath.

How to Decorate for Fall

How to Decorate for Fall-autumn-21453_1280-300x200The changing season brings the opportunity to do fresh decorating and staging throughout the rooms in your home. Put away the summer decor of bright colors and seashells, and bring on the rich tones of crispy leaves and pumpkins. The autumn is the perfect time to add warm colors and create a cozy, rustic feeling in every room. Fall is a season that calls for decor that incorporates natural elements like leaves, pumpkins, pine cones, and gourds.

Harvest Decor

Pumpkins are an essential part of fall decor. You can use fake or real pumpkins of varying sizes and colors, both inside and outside of the home. Use them on tablescapes, mantel displays, and on the front porch. A simple, yet creative display of pumpkins can make a statement in the front of a home, whether it’s on a porch, steps, or simply situated next to the entryway. Gourds, bales of hay, and cornstalks are other harvest features that can be used for decorating.

Colorful Leaves

Nature’s main feature for fall is the changing colors of the leaves. You don’t have to be outdoors to enjoy the colors. Use real or fake leaves in deep reds, oranges, yellows, and browns to create simple accents throughout the home. You can also make a wreath with leaves, acorns, and pine cones to display the natural beauty of the fall season right on your front door.

Keep It Cozy

Fall is a great time to bring out your warm flannel throw blankets and add them to the sofa and chairs in the living area. Consider changing out accent pillow covers for more seasonal styles that have warm tones, rich colors, or plaid designs. Aim to create a cozy, warm, and inviting atmosphere in every room of your home. The right fall decor pieces will be able to transition seamlessly into your design throughout November.
