DIY Bathroom Decorating Ideas

Here are bathroom decorating ideas that will jump start your imagination and give you skills to transform your bathroom into the one you want. Many say a bathroom is one of the easiest rooms to start with when you decide to start changing the decor of your home simply because it is so small!

This makes some sense, as it is much faster to paint a small bathroom, for example. Also, your choices are limited because there is little or no room for furniture inside so there isn't much you can change besides wall color, curtains and small decorations. In fact, small bathroom decorating is a great place to get creative because just by changing one or two easy things the whole room will have a new look.

This all being said, however, for some reason people seem to get stuck on bathroom decor. This room is often the last one to get revamped in a home. Perhaps it is because even though it is used everyday, the actual time spent each time is rather short. But don't neglect it! It is where you refresh and where you start your day in the morning. For those with families, it may be the room where you get a few rare quiet moments all to yourself. This is precious! Transform it into a place that you love.

Here are projects and articles that are filled with DIY bathroom decorating ideas:

Faux Stained Glass Bathroom Windows
I love the look of stained glass windows in bathrooms because they let in light yet are totally private. However, sometimes real stained glass isn't in the budget or within the range of DIY skills you have.

We used ours for several years and they held up nicely, I was impressed and would most certainly use them again.
