Summertime Guest Bath Refresh

With guests in and out during summertime entertaining, keep your bathroom modern and vibrant. Whether your bath is large or small, here are a few easy trending bathroom updates that will help keep your bathroom looking resplendent for the season.


If not the main, the mirror is one of the focal points of your bathroom. When is the last time you replaced your mirror? Hanging a new, modern one is the number one way to refresh any bathroom. Try a new shape, finish or thickness. A showstopper is the new, trending backlit or dimmable mirror. Don't want to part with the one you have now? Try painting or staining the frame a new color.


Not often considered, but an easy and inexpensive way to upgrade your bathroom is the inclusion of light fixtures. Even installing a small sconce near your mirror can greatly change the mood and lighting in your space. More popular though are small chandeliers or hanging bulbs which can greatly amp up the mood if desired. Experiment with what you consider best fits your own style. Or, if you prefer, make your own fixtures to give you more personal style and add more vibrancy to your space.


An accent wall provides a focal point for your vanity or a tub, whichever you wish to highlight. It serves as a contrast against the rest of your bathroom. Today's popular and budget-friendly resurfacing choices are natural stone, wood, mosaic tile, and brick. A little pricier, marble is always timeless. Maybe try some floating shelves. Paint and wallpaper are easiest and easily replaced for another season.


An increasingly popular trend, matte black is a bold and powerful color, easily striking and visibly noticeable. The demand for matte finished counter tops, sinks, cabinets, bathtubs even ceilings are on the rise and it doesn’t seem to be diminishing anytime soon. With matte finishes, dirt and dust are not visible and the material is not easily permeable. So consider matte black if you want to give your bathroom a modern look that won’t easily be forgotten.


Of all the walls in your home waiting for art, it can seem like the bathroom is one of the last places to get considered. Adding bathroom art can create a sense of thoughtfulness and beauty, turning the bathroom from a purely functional space to somewhere you look forward to spending time, or better yet, amuse your guests. The art shown here in our gallery can be found here on Etsy.


An easy way to update your guest bath is to refresh your decor. Get rid of the old and bring in the new! Ideas include green plants, plant stands, textured baskets to hold guest items, nature inspired, fun and/or bright colored rugs, bold colored towels or amusing decor pieces.
