If your budget is about $500: Get a new shower head, fresh linens and better vanity lighting, and then update the toilet. Unless your toilet is very old, chances are a new toilet seat and flushing lever are all that’s needed to give it a brand-new look. Just be sure to choose a seat and hardware that will work with your existing toilet: Most toilets are either a round or elongated shape, and this determines which toilet seats will work. And while it may sound a bit silly, choosing a really nice toilet seat and lever can make the whole bathroom look classier.
In fact, centering a mirror on the sink and then adding a second mirror symmetrical to the first can make the whole composition look more pleasingly balanced, compared with using just a single mirror. Another reason to use smaller mirrors is, of course, to allow some room for sconces to sit in between. Vanity light can be located in various places, but placing it to the sides of the mirror lights the face well, so it is both beautiful and functional.
If your budget is about $100: Get a new shower head or bathtub faucet. Not only will a fresh shower head look better, but it also will improve your bathing experience every single day. If you’re a handy homeowner, you can even install it yourself and save on labor costs. If you have a little extra wiggle room in your budget, splurge on a fancier shower head. You won’t regret it.
Add a pretty pattern. We’re getting braver when it comes to pattern on our floors. A vintage- or Moroccan-style tile can look fantastic in a bathroom. It adds welcome contrast to an all-white room, and it means that the rest of a room doesn’t have to work so hard to look stylish. Here, a pretty vintage-look pattern pairs with a black border, which grounds the design and adds a traditional touch.
