If you’re hosting guests this holiday season, there’s much to prepare. Decorating, baking, cooking and organizing entertainment are likely your priorities leading up to their arrival. However, don’t overlook a space that everyone will use multiple times a day: your bathroom.

Try these simple bathroom upgrades to prep for holiday guests.


Mixing textures, styles and colors for a bathroom’s décor is a simple but effective way to infuse the space with warmth and character. Consider combining different materials like wood, glass and metals for visual appeal.

An easy way to do so is to switch out hardware, such as cabinet handles and knobs, towel racks, and shower curtain hooks. Don’t forget to incorporate opposing textures with soft towels, rugs and shower curtains for a cozy and luxurious atmosphere.


Wallpaper is an affordable and easy way to freshen up an aesthetic with a touch of personality.

Wallpaper the whole bathroom or focus on one accent wall. Look for patterned and/or textured wallpapers. Whether using nature-inspired or bold modern patterns, this simple upgrade allows for future flexibility as trends change.



A practical and visually appealing way to elevate bathrooms is to upgrade the sink faucet. Look for designs that complement your décor to enhance aesthetic appeal, but also improve bathroom functionality.

The Stryke® Single Handle Pull-Down Bathroom Faucet is an easy-to-install faucet that quickly cleans toothpaste, dirt and small debris from the sink with a nimble pull-down spray wand.

The Delta MagnaTite® Docking uses an integrated magnet to snap the faucet spray wand into place, keeping it docked when not in use. The Lumicoat® Finish also guarantees resistance against water spots and mineral buildup.


Adding a bidet is a convenient, thoughtful and hygienic improvement that adds a sense of luxury, making guests feel pampered and elevating their bathroom experience.

Modern bidet attachments and toilet seats are simple and cost effective and don’t require installing a whole separate system or change of plumbing.


Switching out the current showerhead with a newer model can transform showering from a daily necessity to a spa-like experience. A new showerhead can remedy low-water pressure and if paired with a handheld showerhead, it can make cleaning easier than ever.

Perfect for a DIY upgrade, the Delta® ProClean™ 6-Setting Hand Shower is a powerful and practical addition to your shower. It uses a pause setting that provides time for shaving, lathering and other shower tasks. Then, it restarts the water at the same temperature as when it was paused, providing a seamless showering experience to help conserve water and hot water supply.


This showerhead also makes it easier to keep showers and tile clean and reduces soap scum buildup with regular use, cleaning shower surfaces at least two times faster than standard sprays. The focused ProClean™ spray easily cleans hard-to-reach places without you having to enter in the shower.


Adjust the mood and ambiance of a bathroom by playing with lighting. Create a relaxed atmosphere by installing adjustable lighting fixtures, like dimmer switches. Avoid bright white lighting. Focus on soft, warm-colored LED lights for a cozy and inviting atmosphere.

Besides overhead lighting, add night lights near the sink and toilet to help guests can find their way in the dark.


Improve or expand bathroom storage to easily stock and provide access to towels and toiletries for guests. Look for space-efficient but wellorganized cabinets to install. If lacking space for a cabinet, install shelves and use storage baskets to keep items organized and within reach.

Think of these upgrades as holiday presents to yourself. Create a welcoming and comfortable bathroom space that your guests (and you) can appreciate this holiday season and beyond.

Happy hosting!
