Shelves are a great way to enhance your bathroom decor -- but only if they are properly decorated. Leaving the shelves empty and void of any accessories isn't exactly attractive, nor will it benefit the surrounding decor. So, consider the following ideas when decorating your bathroom shelves.
I know this probably sounds like common sense, but you would be surprised to learn just how many people overlook towels as a decorative accessory for bathroom shelves. Assuming the shelves are deep and tall enough, place a few colorful towels here. If your bathroom is decorated in turquoise, for instance, you can use a similar turquoise-colored towels on the shelves to enhance the decor.
Another idea is to decorate your bathroom shelves with baskets. You can place some wicker baskets on the shelves, filling them with various accessories like shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, lotion, etc. Wicker baskets offer a unique, classic appearance that's simply not found elsewhere. And being they are baskets, they are perfect storage conditioners for accessories such as these.
We can't talk about ways to decorate bathroom shelves without mentioning candles. I'm a huge fan of candles for a number of reasons: they are colorful, look great, and the scented variety smells great when lit. Of course, candles alone typically aren't enough to fill all of the space in a shelving unit, so you'll need to combine them with other accessories mentioned here.
What is a theme item and how can you use it decorate your bathroom shelves? Basically, a themed item is any decorative accessory that follows a particular theme. It's not uncommon for homeowners to decorate their bathroom in a beach theme, which as the name suggests, is characterized by the use of beach items like ships in a bottle, fishing net, seashells, etc. If your bathroom has a beach theme, consider decorating the shelves with these items. And even if your bathroom has a different theme, you can still decorate the shelves with relevant items as per its theme.
Of course, you can also decorate your bathroom shelves with unique accessories. One such accessory that looks great in bathrooms is a cuckoo clock. This isn't just an ordinary clock, but rather it's a work of art. Cuckoo clocks are hand-made, with origins dating back centuries ago to Germany's Black Forest region. You can place a cuckoo clock on your bathroom shelves to increase the space's aesthetic value.
