A household bathroom usually takes on one of two personalities – it can be cold, rigid, and sterile, or it can be welcoming, warm, and relaxing. The latter is, of course, preferable, especially if it’s a bathroom that guests use when they visit. Like any other room, whether it’s for yourself or your guests, you want to create an atmosphere that you love.

One unique way to decorate a bathroom counter is to find unique pieces made of standout materials such as mirrored glass, real wood, various metals, concrete, and even mosaic glass. You can make your bathroom more inviting by swapping out the counter accessories without hiring an interior designer.

In this article, we will provide tips on how to keep your bathroom counter organized. Once that daunting task is done, we will share four unique ways to decorate a bathroom counter. Whether your bathroom is contemporary, rustic, mission-style, or industrial, you should keep reading to find inspiration to give it a brand new look.

Things You Shouldn’t Keep on Your Bathroom Counter

The main culprit for bathroom counter clutter is usually beauty and cosmetic products. These items can include cosmetics, makeup brushes, hair styling products, hairbrushes, perfume, and various other things that you use daily.

You may also store nail polish or jewelry in the bathroom, but we don’t recommend it because you should keep these items in a cool, dry place to prevent nail polish from getting thick and your costume jewelry from tarnishing.

If there are items that you don’t want to hide, you can add some storage space on your bathroom walls.

For example, this BeSuerte Rustic Hanging Wall Mount Mason Jar Holder is perfect for storing makeup brushes, mascara, lip gloss, cotton swabs, cotton balls, and toothbrushes/toothpaste. This highly rated product is available in two sizes. The larger size has hooks at the bottom for hanging your robe, a hand mirror, or clothes to change into.

How to Hide Clutter in the Bathroom

Between toiletries and cleaning products, there is so much clutter that needs to fit in your bathroom. If you have kids, there’s even more.

Here are three simple ways to hide clutter in the bathroom. Whether you have a little or a lot, one of these ideas should work for you. You can undoubtedly customize these ideas to fit the main bathroom, a guest bathroom, or the kids’ bathroom.

Keep Cosmetics in a Portable Organizer

While there are many table cosmetics organizers available, it would be best not to display your cosmetics on your bathroom counter to minimize clutter.

A portable organizer with a handle on top, like the Joligrace Makeup Train Case stored under the bathroom counter, would work well. You can easily pull out the case and store it when not in use, and it keeps your makeup stash neatly organized. This top-rated aluminum train case is available in a pretty rose gold color.

Add a Decorative Medicine Cabinet

There are all types of door wall cabinets that you can use to add concealed storage to your bathroom walls.

Find something decorative and functional, like this Fox Hollow Furnishings Picture Perfect Medicine Cabinet. This unique cabinet is available in six finishes and has three adjustable wood shelves. The front can hold your favorite photo or art print to give your bathroom a personal touch. It can also hold a mirror, which is convenient if you need to share mirror time.

Add Hidden Built-in or Freestanding Shelves

Shelves provide much-needed storage in a small space. Built-in shelves are rarely found in bathrooms, so if you’re not so lucky, a tall freestanding bookshelf will probably give you all the storage space you need.

A simple bookshelf will do because you’ll be hiding it. Look for a bookshelf with a depth that fits your space perfectly. Adjustable shelves would be ideal so you can store everything from paper towels to soap bars.

Hanging curtains over open shelves is an easy way to hide your clutter. You can use the same curtain you use for your shower to ensure that the bookshelf blends in well. The ruffled shower curtain Volens White would work well for this purpose.

Get one for your shower and one to hide your shelves. The ruffles make it easy to shorten the curtain if needed, as you can trim off one or two layers of ruffles without showing an unfinished edge.

Contemporary Bathroom Counter Decoration with Chrome and Mirrors

If you desire a contemporary look, you can add some elegant items with metallic finishes to your bathroom counter. This style would work best in bathrooms with chrome faucets and lights.

Watch this video to get inspired on how to use chrome and mirrors along with white and light gray tones to decorate a bathroom counter:

Below are some examples of things you can use to create a unique contemporary look similar to the one in the video example. There are so many polished chrome and mirrored decor items on the market. If you can’t find something you like, keep looking.

Remember, these ideas are meant to inspire, and you are encouraged to add your special touch to make them your own.

Qmdecor Rectangle Silver Decorative Mirrored Tray

The Qmdecor rectangular silver decorative mirrored tray is an elegant and unique piece. Instead of just mirroring the bottom of the tray, mirrors on all sides provide a visually more exciting decorative choice.

This tray accommodates due to its large 11 x 14 x 2 inches (27.9 x 35.6 x 5.1 cm) size. Be sure to measure your space before choosing a tray for your bathroom counter. An oversized vase will make your counter look cluttered.

Howard Elliott 99013 Rounded Mirrored Vase

Though it has some curves, the Howard Elliott 99013 Rounded Mirrored Vase is undeniably elegant. Based on 4.9 out of 5 possible stars customer feedback, this 20-inch high vase is stunning and would make a beautiful addition to your space.

Some versatile artificial flower stems that you could use with this vase are eucalyptus, jasmine, or orchids. Choose just one to maintain the elegant, modern look.

mDesign Bathroom Vanity Accessories Set in Plastic

To store your cotton swabs, cotton balls, and liquid hand soap, for example, you can reach for the mDesign plastic bathroom vanity accessories set. If you prefer not to see the contents of each container, there are plenty of polished chrome options available.

We don’t recommend storing your toothbrushes outdoors. Instead, use the toothbrush holder for small artificial green plant stems.

Small SWAROVSKI Tealight Holders

Place one to three small SWAROVSKI tealight holders around your bathroom counter to create a relaxing atmosphere. You could place one inside your mirrored tray and strategically place one or two next to the other selected mirrored pieces.

The play of light with the polished chrome and mirrors creates a fantastic effect. Dim the lights and light these candles before sinking into a soothing bubble bath.

Rustic Bathroom Counter Decoration with Wrought Iron and Wood

Rustic decor usually entails warm, natural colors and real, untreated, or minimally treated wood. A rustic bathroom counter includes pieces inspired by lakeside homes, mountain cabins, ski lodges, and farmhouses, not just log cabins.

You can incorporate these items stylishly into your space to bring accents of nature and the great outdoors inside. Below are some of our favorite rustic accessories.

Creative Co-Op Two-Tier Tray with Metal Handles in Distressed Brown Wood

This two-tier tray brings storage to a new level. It’s somewhat reminiscent of something you might stumble upon in an antique shop. A multi-tiered tray is perfect for a bathroom counter with limited space.

This highly rated piece is 18.5 inches high and is available in white and black in addition to brown, making it a good match for most rustic-style bathrooms.

Stone & Beam Rustic Farmhouse Jug Table Lamp

Add a rustic lamp, like this Stone & Beam Rustic Farmhouse Jug Table Lamp, to your bathroom counter if you have enough space. Use a soft, warm-white bulb in this lamp to create a welcoming, cozy atmosphere.

AZOZITA Mason Jar Bathroom Accessories Set

You can’t turn this wine rack higher than it’s wide. Make sure to measure your space before deciding to purchase this wine rack towel holder for your bathroom counter.

Mosaic Glass and Bronze Mission-Style Bathroom Counter

The mission style is usually known for dark-stained, sturdy oak furniture. You’ll also see a lot of wood grain and slats. While it may seem like the mission style overlaps with rustic, you’re less likely to find distressed, untreated wood with mission-style pieces. Instead, you’ll discover beautifully crafted, high-quality furniture.

If you have at least some dark wood in your bathroom, consider items like the following for your bathroom counter.

Large Sufandly Wood Tray with Handles

The large Sufandly wood tray with handles may look hefty, but it’s lightweight yet sturdy. What makes this tray unique is the striking grain pattern and the metal tacks at the corners. You often find tacks or nail heads on upholstered or leather furniture in the same room environment as mission-style pieces.

Sufandly offers this tray in three different sizes, so you can choose the one that fits your bathroom counter best.

VP Home Mosaic Glass Wax Warmer

VP Home offers this wax warmer in nine styles, ranging from neutral colors to vibrant colors, giving you plenty of options for the perfect stained glass piece.

Industrial Bathroom Counter Decoration with Concrete and Metal

The industrial style draws inspiration from minimalist living spaces that used to be factories and the like. The materials you’ll find in industrial decor items are weathered wood, iron and steel, and concrete.

The industrial look is currently trendy in the home decor industry, so there’s currently an abundance of options for decorating industrial bathroom counters. Below are some of our favorite finds.
