Five Small Bathroom Upgrades that Make a Big Impact

Maybe your bathroom doesn’t need a full-blown renovation, but it’s starting to feel tired. Or, maybe you’re considering putting your home on the market come spring and you want to make some minor changes that will make a major impact. Here are five ideas on where to start:


Brass and gold are having a major moment right now. I like the lucite detail on the gold hardware in the photo below. It’s a subtle way to infuse elements of your personality and refresh the space without breaking the bank.

Luxurious Linens

You won’t be sorry if you splurge on bath linens such as towels or robes. Even the most expensive linens are more cost efficient than new tile or even shower fixtures. Plus, the feelings of a luxurious fabric can instantly invoke the feeling of five star spa.

Clean, crisp white will always reign supreme when it comes to a bathroom. It’s classic and so versatile. However, if you have a white vanity, white marble, and/or brass hardware, you may consider dark, inky shades such as the blue featured below. Classic Blue is the Pantone 2020 Color of the Year after all.

Accent Furniture

Accent furniture such as benches, ladder shelves, storage baskets, and tables can add some dimension to your bathroom. I like the simplicity of the neutral storage basket paired with a small table styled with fresh flowers and a candle. It’s a look that can easily be achieved even in a small city bathroom.

Accent Tile

If you’re feeling adventurous to start a bigger project without completely renovating your bathroom, an accent tile may be the way to go. It’s an opportunity to add a pop of color or you can carry through with the same tile as the floor to create the illusion of more space.
