Diagonal tiles add some bespoke feel to the bathroom. Also, by tiling the walls to the ceiling, you will get a sparkling surface that would otherwise look lifeless. While the material selection is vital, how you use the materials is more important. Tiling can be expensive, but do not worry. If you are an adventurous DIYer, this is a job you could do on your own. And it can be fun!

Plants in stylish pots or planters are eye-catching and can even make a small space appear larger. You may think that the bathroom is the last place to have all the greenery. But, some plants do well in the bathroom. Try bringing Boston ferns, orchids, or aloe vera into your bathroom, and see the difference.

Incorporate Some English Gold and Metallic Accents

Brass and that décor staple from the ‘80s are coming back. Make your bathroom more warm and elegant by including English gold or brass decor elements.

Remember, the most crucial aspect here is getting the right shade. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a bathroom that looks garish instead of inviting. Interior designers advise avoiding the gold of yesteryears that has a more greenish base. Instead – use brushed gold in sleeker shapes. The room will feel fresher, newer, and warmer.
