Design tips for decorating a boho style bathroom

Here’s how to achieve the boho aesthetic room of your dreams.

What’s the best way to design and decorate a boho bathroom?

On one hand, bathrooms are undeniably practical spaces. They serve a very specific purpose and are often the smallest rooms in any home. On the other hand, bathrooms also double as havens for cleansing and self-care, an intimate escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Small room, big personality.

Designing a boho bathroom that's both functional and stylish involves combining practicality with aesthetic appeal. Whether you're in the process of a bathroom remodel or looking to makeover your existing one, these are the key elements to include in your design**:

  • Tile: Tile is typically the first choice you’ll want to make when designing a bathroom. You may opt to tile the entire bathroom or just the floors in a powder room or backsplash for the shower or bathtub area. Select tiles that are durable, non-slip, and easy to clean. Tiles range in all different shapes, sizes, materials, and layouts. From penny rounds to large format floor tiles, zellige to subway tile, or checkerboard to herringbone, your choice of tile will set the tone for the whole bathroom. And don’t forget the grout! Your choice of grout color can completely change the way your tile looks in the space.
  • Paint or Wallpaper: If you don’t choose to tile your walls, you’ll want to select a paint or wallpaper that can withstand moisture and humidity. Vinyl wallpaper is best for this application. We are partial to covering walls, ceilings, and trim in a uniform paint color to create a cohesive look. Or consider an accent wall to serve as a focal point.
  • Bathroom Vanity: The bathroom vanity should balance the boho style with functionality, offering adequate storage and countertop space. The vanity provides place to wash hands or brush teeth, and storage for toiletries and personal care items. It’s common for modern bathrooms to include a vanity with a double sink. Sink options include under-mount, vessel, and pedestal sinks and range in materials from porcelain, stone, or glass.
  • Mirror or Medicine Cabinet: Choose a mirror or medicine cabinet that complements the vanity in size and style. Consider a framed mirror that matches the bathroom’s boho design style, or a frameless mirror for a sleek, more modern look.
  • Toilet & Sink: The modern standard for toilets and sinks is white porcelain. But if you really want to make a statement, consider going with a color! Colored fixtures are having a comeback moment or you can source a vintage option.
  • Shower or Bathtub (for full baths): Depending on the size and layout of the bathroom, you may opt for a shower or bathtub (or a bathtub with shower combination). A shower will consist of a showerhead, faucet controls, and a shower enclosure (shower curtain or glass door), while a bathtub provides a space for soaking and relaxation. If you have the space, you may opt for a separate shower and a freestanding clawfoot tub.
  • Lighting: Combine task, ambient, and accent lighting for a layered lighting scheme. Consider the placement of lighting fixtures to eliminate shadows and evenly light the space. Dimmer switches can adjust the mood. Sconces are popular options for vanity areas.
  • Faucets: Faucets are an opportunity to add a decorative touch. Select finishes that match other metal elements in the bathroom, such as cabinet hardware or lighting fixtures. Consider water-saving models for environmental sustainability.
  • Boho Bathroom Decor: From bath mats and shower curtains to soap dishes, toothbrush and toilet paper holders, bath accessories should be both functional and decorative. Coordinate the color and pattern with the overall color scheme and boho style to bring your design vision to life.

What materials and home decor should I use to achieve a boho bathroom design?

Bohemian (aka Boho) interior design is known for its eclectic and unconventional approach, celebrating a rich mix of colors, prints, patterns, and textures—lots and lots of them. This style exudes a carefree, artistic vibe, incorporating elements from different cultures and eras. The boho style encourages personal expression and creativity, resulting in layered spaces that are full of character and charm. We’ll always be the first to tell you that design rules are meant to be broken, but there really are no rules when it comes to boho design. And that’s just part of the charm. Throw out every piece of design advice you’ve heard, and go wild!

To achieve a boho bathroom is simple. While there is no standard boho color palette, you’ll often see a mix of cool and warm colors and bold jewel tones. Common boho decor elements include vibrant rugs, floor cushions, tapestries, and an abundance of plants that bring life and energy to the space. Vintage furniture, colorful textiles, and unique artifacts reflect a globetrotter's spirit, while layered fabrics create a cozy, lived-in feel.
