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.
A bathroom vanity needn’t be straight out of the shop or supplied by a manufacturer or cabinetmaker. Indeed, thinking outside the square can turn up a one-of-a-kind vanity with character and function to boot. Sideboards, desks and cabinets — whether new or used — can all be repurposed to provide storage and surface space.
The ombré trend isn’t loved by everyone, but this tile wall might quell even its toughest critics. Fading from dark gray to nearly white, it connects the floors and the walls while opening up the space in an elegant, subtle way.
When choosing the size of your mirror, you should consider not just function, but also proportion. To create a balanced look, think about the size of your mirror relative to that of your vanity. Typically, vanity mirrors are not wider than the vanity itself, with some exceptions we will discuss a little later.
