2. Painting the lower half of the walls a rich color is a great way to give your bath a fresh look when you do not have tiled walls.
3. Invest in new storage baskets that coordinate with the wall color to tie everything together — and keep toiletries and towels out of sight.
5. Big change: Try a modern sink. The crisp, clean lines of a modern console sink look fresh with slate floors, a muted palette and simple lighting.
7. Use a "real" rug instead of a bath mat. It's unexpected and feels great underfoot. Although you can use any small rug, it's best to choose one you can toss in the washing machine occasionally.
8. A wood stump stool is an easy way to add warmth and organic texture to a bathroom. Use one beside the tub to keep your teacup and book within reach during long soaks.
11. Hang big hooks and fringed towels. Sometimes a detail like this can make all the difference. Try hanging several extra-large wall hooks and swapping out your old towels for thinner fringed ones.
21. Big change: Try a wood plank wall. Add rustic appeal no matter where you live by applying reclaimed wood planks to your walls. If you go this route, just be sure to do your research or talk with a pro who can lead you to the woods and finishes that can withstand damp conditions.
