A rental bathroom isn't alway the prettiest and it can be difficult to have it look the way you want it to without your landlord agreeing to major changes. However, we've come up with some ideas that will inspire you to achieve the bathroom style you desire.

Change the shower curtain

If your shower requires a shower curtain then an easy way to update your bathroom is to change it. A shower curtain takes up a lot of surface area so this will instantly change the entire look of the room. We are huge fans of this Frida Kahlo design from Red Candy.

Choose a stylish mirror

Swapping the mirror in your bathroom can add a touch of your own personal style to the space. Make sure to keep the old one somewhere safe for when you decide to move out! This hanging circle mirror is £94.99 from My Furniture. 

Switch the shower head

Update your rental shower with a new shower head. This can not only look ten times better but it might also improve the water flow from your shower. Check out our guide to shower heads to find the best one for you. 

Cover floors with a bath mat

Not a fan of your bathroom flooring? A bath mat is a great excuse to cover them. Layer mats like George Home has done here, or you could even get a bathroom rug, which covers even more surface area.

Add artwork and plants

Bathrooms can be stylish, too! So make sure to add lots of personalised artwork and plants to liven up the space. Spider plants and aloe vera work great in the bathroom as they soak up all of the moisture!

Bring in your own storage

The great thing about bathroom furniture is that it is often quite compact and can be moved around easily. Bringing in your own bathroom storage is a great way of adding personality to your rental bathroom. This gorgeously sleek cabinet is from Noa and Nani.
