I actually coached someone once with a bathroom design blog. Gee, we had fun. There are so many styles to choose from, like:
- A bordello bath (Can-Can dancers and red/pink all over!)
- Lavender fields
- The Littlest Mermaid
- Rockers and rappers
- Cello rhapsody
- Picasso style
Oh, my I could go on and on. Truly. If you can think of a theme or idea, there is likely a bathroom decor concept that will fit with it nicely.
And for such a relatively small space, there is just so much stuff that goes into it, like:
- Bath mats
- Soap dish
- Toothbrush holder
- Poddy seat and seat cover
- All manner of wall art
- Back scrubbers
- Light switch covers
- Night lights
- Shower curtain
- Window curtains
- Light fixtures
… gosh, and so much more.
We really had fun with wall decals, like the kitty. There are thousands of them for all manner of design, and they hold up extremely well in the atmosphere of a steamy tub!
All of this means that you will have more items to sell than you will ever be able to feature.
As for promotion, you won’t be able to rely on top placement in the SEO searches. There are just too many big box stores with bathroom departments, and they get first crack at high ranking.
I strongly recommend that you take a look at the free master class on finding your ideal client. It really will help you pinpoint her, and reach her and all her thousands of cohorts.
There is a big plus to the fact that there are a lot of big box stores with bathroom items. That means that there is a huge demand for variety and style, which serves you well. While a big box store can feature the items in its store, it can feature ONLY the items in its store. You have the freedom to pull items from all kinds of stores via affiliate sales, and there are tons of affiliate companies with items you can feature.
You needn’t be a professional designer to make this type of site work well.
You do need innate creativity and the ability to put items together, even if they are from different suppliers.
If all of this sounds overwhelming (and it can be), focus down on just one type of bathroom design, like children’s bathrooms, or bath decor for teenage girls. By the time you add soaps and lotions and other paraphernalia, there is still loads of ideas to keep you busy for a very long time.
