A guest bathroom needs to be clean and convenient, but can't it also be cute? There are countless ways to quickly upgrade your bathroom's appearance and make it enjoyable for you and for your guests. To start, try these 7 quick face-lifts and notice the difference immediately.

Picking a theme is an easy way to tie all of your bathroom details together without changing too much around. Add some key details (like a sailboat picture to go nautical, or some shells for a coastal theme) and a basic color theme, and voila! You've got a finished look even if it's not completely new and renovated.

Tip #2: Update Your Shower Curtain

Whether it's collecting mold, getting dingy, or just out of date, your shower curtain is easily replaced and makes a huge difference in your bathroom's appearance. Get a fresh new style or color, or get a plain jane curtain and paint or stencil the look that's right for you!

Tip #3: Add Some Wall Decor

It could be as simple as some framed photographs or as unique as this giant wooden key -- all that matters is that it adds some points of interest to your bathroom and gives it a homier feel. Try a colorful sign made from repurposed wood or a vintage clock.

Tip #4: Make Toiletries Part of Decor

Guests should feel at home in your house without having to bring along all of their belongings. Provide basic toiletries, like soap, q-tips, and cotton balls to ensure that your guests feel taken care of. Find a cute way to display them, like this repurposed vintage loaf pan.

Tip #5: Get Some Good Looking Towel Storage

It's important to always have fresh, clean towels available for visitors, so make sure you've got the storage space. Adding some antique hooks or an industrial bar is a quick and convenient upgrade for your bathroom.

Tip #6: Freshen Up the Air

Ensuring that your bathroom always has a fresh scent is a hostess must! Guests will immediately feel more comfortable in a new place if it's inviting to their senses. Make your own air diffuser or potpourri to sit atop your toilet tank, counter, or shelf, and freshen up the room.

Tip #7: Add Some Leaves and Greenery

Bring color and vibrancy into your bathroom with small potted plants and succulent terrariums. Not only do they add texture to the room, they also aerate your bathroom and make it more inviting for guests.
