Before you get started, you should consider two things. First, what theme would you like to go with? Some ideas include classic red and white, natural evergreen with touches of wood, or even black and white themed. Secondly, consider the size of your bathroom. You don’t have to go crazy! If it’s a small guest bathroom, you only need to incorporate 2-3 of these ideas. For a larger bathroom like your master, feel free to incorporate as many of these ideas as your’d like!

Festive Shower Curtains

Start your bathroom transformation with Christmas-themed shower curtain. Look for designs featuring classic holiday elements like snowflakes, reindeer, or Christmas trees. Alternatively, you can opt for solid red or green curtains and accessorize with holiday-themed hooks for a more subtle touch. Many times you can find a combo set that includes matching curtains, soap dispenser, soap dish, and toothbrush holder. These are great for the kids’ bathroom.
