How To Decorate A Bathroom Bookcase

It’s not very often that we get to see bathrooms or powder rooms with a bookcase. Although reading in the bathroom is sort of a habit for many of us, having a whole collection of books in such a space is not a common thing to do. That’s a pity if you ask me. A bookcase adds character and a sophisticated vibe anywhere it’s situated, even if it’s the least expected of rooms- the bathroom. There are so many ways to decorate them, books or not! Beautiful scented candles, trinket trays and boxes, ornaments and heirlooms or souvenirs and, of course, botanicals are just some ideas. So, instead of arguing that in our digital era a bookcase is an unnecessary luxury to a home, let’s embrace this style even in the most unorthodox of placements, the bathroom.
