Decluttering the bathroom will give it a freshly updated look. If you’re space challenged, look at how you can improve on existing storage. Adding pull-out drawers (that sort items easier) into a cabinet is an easy weekend upgrade. Standard sizes of pull-out drawers are available at most home improvement stores.
If the idea of adding color to the entire room seems a bit too much for your tastes, try doing just one. The key here is to pick the right wall to be your showpiece you want one with a strong focal point or the one that’s directly across from the door.
Here are 10 easy ways to add color into your bathroom design, while still leaving the space feeling clean and put together. Practically speaking, paint is the simplest and most affordable way to add a large punch of color to a space. We recommend selecting the shade you want first and then building the rest of the room’s color scheme around it.
When thinking of bathroom decorating ideas for art, think beyond a canvas print. A wall gallery of favorite objects like starfish or baskets can be another way to decorate your bathroom walls.
There’s a great variety of affordable lighting fixtures available. Replace outdated lighting fixtures with new ones from your home improvement store. Electrical projects are best left to professionals, but with some guidance, switching out lighting fixtures shouldn’t be difficult for a DIY-er.

If you’re tired of walking into your dated bathroom and dream of a change, we’ve got bathroom decorating ideas for you that are inexpensive and simple to do.
Small bathrooms may seem like a difficult design task to take on; however, these spaces may introduce a clever design challenge to add to your plate. Creating a functional and storage-friendly bathroom may be just what your home needs.
The small bathroom design keyword for 2017 and beyond is: floating. Float everything, including the toilet, from your walls. It’s a great way to make cleaning easier, when you can access the floor below. Not to mention the space looks bigger, because our eye tends to judge space by analyzing the floor area. You also maximize valuable wall space, which is often left bare. And let’s be honest, it looks pretty fresh and cool!
Neutral shades are a popular pick for bathrooms, but that shouldn’t mean that adding color is totally off limits. In such a small space, color might seem risky but it’s just the opposite. On a small scale it’s easy to go bold without going overboard.
Create a look that’s twice as stunning by duplicating the style two (or even three) times. This is most commonly done over double sinks, but multiple mirrors could be used over a long single-sink vanity as an alternative to one large mirror.
Be original when upgrading lighting. Bathroom lighting trends include hanging pendants and light bars that diffuse light in a room. Select LED lighting fixtures since they’re the most energy efficient and don’t heat your bathroom up.
A bath mat or area rug can infuse color into the space and also has a functional purpose in bathrooms that include a tub or shower. Choose a color that ties into with the rest of your accent shades for a truly cohesive look.
When it comes to adding color to a vanity, you have two options: add color to the top or the base. Consider picking one and keeping the other surface neutral for balance. Colorful bases can often be a DIY project and work best on large vanities with cabinet space or shelving. For the countertops, your best bet is to select a colored marble or granite.
