Love Halloween? Look forward every year to pumpkin picking, dressing up and Trick or Treating with the kids? Add a little bit of holiday spirit to your bathroom to keep that Halloween fun going every day of the year. This article will offer several suggestions on how you can keep the main or guest bathroom in your home functional, but also fun and festive by giving it a Halloween theme.
Start With Halloween Colors.
The first step in giving your bathroom a wonderful Halloween theme is to infuse the decor with traditional Halloween colors. Think orange, black, purple, red or golden yellow. Give the walls a fresh coat of paint with your chosen holiday color and purchase new bath towels, necessary accessories such as a soap dish, toilet brush holder and tissue box cover in a complementary Autumn color. Go as subtle or bold as you like and choose shades that are pleasing to the eye and evoke that warm Fall feeling.
Go With A Specific Theme Or Be A Little More General In Your Decorating.
If you decide to decorate your Halloween bathroom in a specific theme such as “The Nightmare Before Christmas” or a Vampire/”Twilight” theme, you simply need to take advantage of the many on line and physical stores that offer an entire bathroom line such as shower curtain, toilet seat cover and waste basket. Purchase all the coordinating accessories and watch your bathroom come to life in your fun and festive theme. If you decide to just go with a more general holiday theme, give your bathroom a more eclectic look with pieces you pick up here and there that say Halloween to you. Add a picture of a jack o’ lantern, a wheelbarrow filled with miniature gourds and a bouquet of fall flowers. Drape a garland of artificial Autumn leaves around the mirror, shelves or across the toilet tank. Add all the elements of your favorite holiday that brings back warm memories and reminds you of the best parts of the season.
Don’t Forget The Pumpkins In Your Halloween Bathroom.
Nothing signifies the holiday better than pumpkins. Paint your bathroom walls pumpkin orange, add a few pumpkin spice candles to the room or set up a display of artificial pumpkins in the corner. A miniature bale of hay with several artificial pumpkins and gourds on top makes a lovely display and will beautifully set the tone of the room.
Hang Your Favorite Halloween Photograph In The Bathroom.
If the holiday is that special to you, you surely have a favorite memory of a Halloween in the past. Perhaps it was the first year you were allowed to go Trick or Treating without your parents, or the year you discovered the joy of getting a good scare on a hayride. If the first year you dressed up your child to celebrate the holiday is your warmest memory, enlarge a favorite photograph from that day. Hang the picture in a prominent area of the bathroom so that it is one of the first things you see when entering the room. Your heart will be warmed each and every time you gaze at the photograph, and guests will surely enjoy seeing a little bit of your past hanging on the bathroom wall.
