When it comes to decorating an apartment, the bathroom tends to fall to the bottom of the priority list. And that's understandable, because it can feel kind of impossible to make a small, rental bathroom feel cute without dedicating serious time and money to it.
But through your decor, there are ways to bring fun, bright colors into your bathroom without breaking out the paintbrush. You can create an on-trend, spa-worthy space by curating your towels, bath mats, and more to complement the neutral colors found in most rental bathrooms.
Whether you want a bright, cheerful space to boost your morning mood, or luxurious spa vibes for the perfect evening unwind, these picks prove you don't need a huge bathroom or renovations to create an inviting, welcoming space.
