A kids’ bathroom gets a clean and classic refresh using these simple black and white bathroom decor swaps.
This post is sponsored by Walmart.
The kids’ bathroom got a black and white bathroom decor swap in preparation for upcoming guest stays, and it feels so classic and fresh in here, we may never go back to the pink bathroom it was before.
Okay, there’s still a little pink, but I couldn’t deprive my girls of all the frilliness. 😉
We still kept the girly tightrope walker art and pink step stools, but it feels much more like a balance between a little kid and guest bathroom with these few small changes.
Doesn’t it feel so much peaceful in here than before? It’s like an at-home spa now.
Even the paint color looks a little different and it’s all because by swapping out the pink accents with inexpensive black and white bathroom decor from Walmart, it eliminated those warm tones that were reflecting on the gray walls to create a sense of serenity in here within minutes.
Walmart Home has really stepped up their game in the bathroom decor accessories department lately.
It’s so easy to get stuck in the idea that in order to make a big difference in a bathroom’s style you have to paint the walls, change the light fixtures, and reinvent the tile.
But if you’re ever craving a new vibe for your bathroom, these simple bathroom decor swaps can make it happen quickly.
8 Black and White Bathroom Decor Swaps for a Classic Refresh
Remember that pink tiger and elephant art beside the sinks?
I found a couple of farmhouse style typography canvases at the thrift store, framed them out with some lattice stripping, and Mod Podged these vintage prints on top for a couple bucks.
Ta da! Classic, vintage, but still feminine art.
I’m a big fan of all white towels in bathrooms. They communicate a clean and fresh feeling that makes your space feel spa-like.
To help dress up their usual plastic packaging, try putting basic bathroom toiletries like cotton swaps, cotton balls, and bath salts in apothecary jars.
Swapping out the pink soap dispenser for this simple foaming soap pump is better suited for a neutral space.
This marble vanity tray helps prevent soap and water from spilling all over the countertop too.
This swap is kind of different from your typical bathroom decor, but swapping out your toilet’s basic white seat for a black seat feels so classic and a little bit retro!
It’s so simple yet makes such a big impact to help a basic toilet feel a bit more upscale.
Vase or Planter
A little greenery (even the fake kind) can add a little life to a dull bathroom. Use a simple neutral vase to keep it feeling fresh.
I especially like to have a lit candle in the bathroom when expecting guests to keep the space smelling good and provide an inviting atmosphere.
It’s nice to place a small bottle of air freshener or some feminine hygiene products for guests to use on this bamboo tray too.
It’s such a little detail, but nothing is more gross than an old, ratty toilet brush sitting right on the floor for guests to see. This marble toilet brush keeps it handy but still looking nice.
Having this decorative plunger nearby for guests (to prevent embarrassing clog moments) it’s good to have too.
If you want to change the entire look of your bathroom, start with the shower curtain.
This gray seersucker shower curtain with the tassel detail still feels just slightly feminine without being over the top.
Tub Side Stool
Having a little stool is great to have handy as a side table for soaks in the the tub or if you need a place to sit and spare your back while bathing a little one. I gave this inexpensive wooden stool a quick stain and poly for a high end designer look for less.
After all of the construction we’ve had these last couple of months and our entire family piling into this bathroom, this space desperately needed this refresh.
It feels so much better in here now with just these simple changes.
