Bathroom counter decor is almost as important as the bathroom design itself. But it can be hard to find the right decor balance without filling your counter space. Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered.
When choosing your bathroom decor, you first need to examine how much counter space is available. You’ll want minimal bathroom counter decor for smaller bathrooms like guest or powder rooms. Otherwise, it will crowd the space. In these rooms, try adding a plant or a small soap tray that accents the colors around the area.
In larger spaces, you can let your imagination run wild with bigger plants, trays, and vases to help fill the counter and complete your design. So whether you’re designing a farmhouse bathroom or a minimalist modern space, the right decor can help you pull your vision together.
