Use neutral tones
Make your bathroom a soothing and personal space with neutral tiles and sepia-toned photos. Even simple photos look chic when framed and hung uniformly over the tub. A plush rug draped over the tub keeps the bathroom floor clutter-free.

Hang a curtain
If your bathtub is the focal point of your bathroom, make it a feminine and luxurious feature by hanging a luxe chandelier and replacing your traditional shower curtain with a romantic, flowing canopy curtain.
Swap out your sink
Any bowl can instantly be made into a vessel sink that looks high-end. This simple ceramic model is mounted on a wooden countertop with a single faucet.
Decorate with shells
Bring a laid-back, beachy ocean feel to your bathroom by decorating with starfish and shells. First line the room with shallow shelving and then paint everything a refreshingly cool blue. Install a rain showerhead to complete the transformation.
Try a trough-style sink
If your bathroom is large, keep the look modern and sleek with an extra-long sink that accommodates two instead of a his-and-hers model. The Zen-like feeling continues to the shower with a floor-to-ceiling glass stall and pebble floor.
Display pretty toiletries
Spas often have terry towel accessories (personalize your toiletry bag as an extra touch) and other pampering treats, so use this easy trick in your bathroom. Pick up a few specialty soaps and pretty bath gels and group with coral on a mirrored tray.
Hang a seaside mural
This seascaped bathroom looks like the perfect place to unwind after a long, stressful day. Even if you live in an urban area, a large wallpaper mural of waves will turn your bathroom into a seaside retreat.
Bring in botanicals
Turn your shower into a natural oasis with a large leaf or a few eucalyptus branches. When your shower is on, it'll be a steamy and refreshing experience. The organic feel of this bathroom is enhanced by the leaf print and the neutral tones of the tile.
