Once you’ve upgraded the lighting quality of your bathroom, paint is the next quick and easy upgrade to the bathroom. Pick light colors for large surfaces like the walls and save the darker, richer tones for accents. Check how your color choices look in your upgraded lighting before you paint, since color temperature can change a color’s shade.
One common misconception is that since bathrooms are often smaller than the other spaces in your home, you don’t need to worry about decor items. The opposite is true. A few well-placed decor items are the secret to making this space feel truly pulled together. Consider using candles, baskets or decorative display shelves to really drive your design home.
Adding a touch of greenery in your bathroom creates a connection between the indoors and outdoors. Organic design coincides with modern design, meaning that the natural outdoor space should easily mesh with the indoor space you are designing. Bring the outdoors inside by adding an indoor plant or two.
If all else fails to pique your interest, incorporate a little color from nature. Whether they’re real or synthetic, colorful or simply green, a few plants can go a long way to add that pop of color into your bathroom.
