Hang a mirror above the sink as a stylish replacement for a tired medicine cabinet.
Using mirrors to make a space feel larger may be one of the oldest tricks in the book, but it sure works! In the remodeled bath shown here, a large strategically placed mirror makes the narrow space seem twice as large and doesn't sacrifice space for morning routines.
Tips for Using Mirrors in the Bath:
Installing decorative tile can make a world of difference in a plain-looking bathroom.
To give this floor a custom look, the interior designer added a border of contrasting tiles in a pretty hue.
More Ways to Work With Tile:
Sofas and wooden furniture lend a feeling of comfort and luxury to any bathroom big enough to accomodate larger pieces.
If you lack storage space, but can't afford custom built-ins, then consider bringing in a piece of furniture, such as a chest of drawers or armoire. Furniture adds instant character and is a nice contrast to sleek bath surfaces.
More Fun With Furniture:
Repainting or wallpapering your bathroom is an inexpensive way to add color.
In the small bathroom shown here, the one-dimensional look of paint wouldn't live up to the rest of the remodel. Hanging wallpaper would be easy, but the patterns all seemed too busy -- until the owners discovered a line of wallpaper that resembles a faux finish. The one they chose complements the room perfectly with its blend of greens, aquas, and blues.
More Ways to Wake Up Walls:
Little touches of color are an easy way to update your bathroom's look in a matter of hours.
To dress up white cabinets like the ones shown here, use inexpensive glass pulls in a color that coordinates with the rest of your bath. Not satisfied with the selection at your local hardware store? Try browsing the extensive online collection at Knobs 4 Less.

Even storage solutions should show a little flair. In the bath at left, handsome baskets and containers mounted near the tub hold bath salts, sponges, and other essentials.
