  3. Get some artwork for the walls. Add some pictures to the walls or around the vanity, find art that can handle the humidity, sculptures will work too.
  4. Soften the light with a lamp. Adding a table lamp will soften the room and it’s easier to relax in the bath and don’t want a glaring light overhead.
  5. Steal from the rest of the house. That doesn’t mean putting the sofa in there but steal a side table, chair or stool.  Use it to hold a plant, books or even a bottle of wine.
  6. Get a new mirror. The mirror serves as a focal point, change the mirror and it will change the whole dynamic of the bathroom.
  7. Get some flowers. Orchids look beautiful and you can grab one at the grocery store that lasts forever, if orchids aren’t to your taste then try some bamboo instead.
