How do I add to a plain bathroom?

I have small bathroom that is quite plain. It’s all-white. I would like to add some personality to the room, but am not sure where to start. What would you recommend?

There are many ways to pump up an all-white bathroom. Consider yourself lucky that you will have so many options.

Go bold on walls. If your bases are white tiles, vanity tub, sink, toilet, then punching up the wall colour will add instant drama. You could choose a bright colour you couldn't normally use in other areas of your home. Think lime green, purple or a navy blue.  

Accent pieces can also really bring in some style. Upholster a small bench in a bright pattern of fresh colour. Think big random pattern. You can also look for vintage ornate mirrors at garage or estate sales and paint them a bright bold colour. Antique jewellery boxes look great on a counter top, then add an exciting colour to this piece as well. You can commit to a frame or a small wooden box much easier than to a wall!
