Decorating a bathroom can sometimes be tricky when trying to make it both functional and pretty to look at. Here are a few ways to achieve both aspects while still keeping that minimal style! 

Start by placing everything you need on a tray. This way, it will help the space feel put together because the items you are displaying are in a cluster presented nicely.

Next, display the items needed to make your space function (example: tissue box, cotton swabs in a pretty container, cotton pads in a container etc.) Once you’ve done this, if you are using a tissue box—get a linen tissue box cover or a leather one to hide the patterns that are on the tissue box itself. This is an easy way to make your space look high-end while also being functionable. The one pictured is from Etsy! 

Following the tissue box and/or cotton swabs and pads, hand wash and hand cream are a perfect thing to display on your tray. They are definitely practical to have in a bathroom, not to mention—necessary. Mine are from Aesop but another one of my favourites is the softening hand wash and cream by Diptyque.

If you’re looking to add a touch of serenity to your bathroom, adding a candle to your tray cluster is definitely the way to go. Not only is it pretty but when lit, it will create a spa-like ambiance for you and your guests. The GLW shop has a few non-toxic candles that you can look into from brands Heretic and Dehv Candle & Co. if you want to opt for a healthier alternative!

Lastly, add a little greenery. A faux plant will help create little to no maintenance but also creates a balanced look. The taller your plant, the more dimension it will add to your bathroom (the key is to always try to draw your eye up). 

Remember a little goes a long way—be picky about what to display (no one likes to see clutter) and make sure that it combines both function and an appealing aspect for the best results.
