It is not very often that you think about decorating the bathroom for a particular season or holiday. However, if you sit down and think about how much time you, your family, and your guests spend in the bathroom on an average day, you just might change your mind. Once you realize that decorating for different seasons and holiday is a great idea, you are going to need some good ideas to get you started. Here, you will discover some unique decorating ideas for the bathroom walls for the fall season.

Wall Art 

It is possible that you have a few pieces of wall art on the bathroom walls. Although you are likely fond of what is currently there, you can take them down – just for the season – and hang up some fall-themed wall art. You can choose from elegant, antique-looking wall art that mentions things like Autumn Flowers, and consists of light pastel colors. On the other hand, you can opt for traditional items, such as a photo of the park in the fall with the leaves changing colors, or paintings that display the outdoor fall weather.

Depending on the style of your bathroom, you can choose from a variety of different styles of wall art. For instance, if you have a country-designed home and bathroom, you can find primitive-styled wall art that will fit with the theme. You can also find neutral tones that will fit just about any color palette, ensuring that your fall-themed bathroom wall décor fits right in with your bathroom design.

Wall Stickers, Window Stickers & Decals

It is no surprise to find many homes decorated with wall stickers, window stickers, and decals to honor a particular holiday or season. You can do the same thing in your bathroom. If you want to use window stickers, the mirror is a great place. Halloween stickers or simple fall stickers can be purchased at your local department store or dollar store for as little as $1 per sheet. If you can find fall-themed wall stickers, you can place them on any of the walls in the bathroom. Be careful, however, as wall stickers and decals do not always stick well to textured or wallpapered walls. With that said, these fall and Halloween-themed stickers are perfect for kids’ bathrooms.

Shelving Décor

If you have a small shelf hanging on one of your bathroom walls, it is likely that there are already some decorative items sitting on it. Again, you can replace these with fall-themed items, to add some color and fall spirit to the space. Consider placing small pumpkins on the shelves. Artificial are recommended as the heat and steam from the shower can cause real pumpkins to soften and rot much quicker. Alongside the pumpkins, you can place small leaf swags, battery-operated candles, and fall berries to enhance the area.

Leaves a Plenty

Leaves – a traditional fall decorating item – can also be used in the bathroom. Again, going back to the mirror, you can hang an artifical leaf swag around the top and sides of the mirror. The brightly colored leaves will instantly bring fall into the space, and leave you feeling as though you have stepped outside when you walk into your bathroom. You can also use leaf swags around a shelf in the bathroom, just to add a little more pizazz to the space.


There is no more perfect room in the home for candles than the bathroom, as long as you keep a few safety tips in mind. If you are placing candles in a guest bathroom or kids’ bathroom, we recommend that you use battery operated candles with an artifical flickering flame, to reduce the risk of harm. With that said, candles make a great display, and there are many fall-themed candles available just about everywhere. You can use jar candles that are scented with fall themes, such as Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, Cinnamon, and Maple. Place these on shelves in the bathroom to add not only the scents of fall, but also the additional fall color.

Just a Few Final Tips 

When it comes to bathroom wall décor, you will need to think about the color palette in your bathroom. For instance, if you have a specific-themed bathroom, such as a brightly colored kids’ bathroom, you would want to avoid choosing whimsical floral items. Instead, you would want to select bright colored photos of pumpkins, ghosts, and other Halloween-like items that would fit more with the theme you have. Take the time to figure out exactly how you want to hang the items on the walls, so that you are not overly crowded or too empty.

Decorating your home for fall can be fun, but remember to decorate all of your spaces – including the bathroom. It helps bring your whole home together, and adds that little touch of fall spirit to every inch of your home.
