A simple mirror can get a glamorous update with the addition of backlighting. You can purchase mirrors with built-in lights or add them yourself to the mirror of your choosing. Illuminated mirrors are ideal for applying makeup and seeing your face in a detailed (but flattering) way. They’re great for bathrooms with low natural light. Just be sure that your lighting is soft not harsh or fluorescent.
A bath mat or area rug can infuse color into the space and also has a functional purpose in bathrooms that include a tub or shower. Choose a color that ties into with the rest of your accent shades for a truly cohesive look.
Define zones in the room by using a different tile in the shower. You’ll want to use a tile that has a water-absorption rating of less than 3 percent (lower than what’s recommended for the floors) and has good traction (a coefficient of friction that’s greater than or equal to .60).
If all else fails to pique your interest incorporate a little color from nature. Whether they’re real or synthetic colorful or simply green a few plants can go a long way to add that pop of color into your bathroom.
