If you're able to afford it you may want to consider installing marble or other stone benchtops. These sleek surfaces make any space, from the bathroom to the kitchen, appear more modern, and more luxurious. why not opt for white marble for a more classic look, or black quartz if you're wanting something a little more modern. Extending the marble theme to the bathtub as well will add an extra layer of elegance.
Alternatively, you could go with a faux marble look, using paint.

One of the simplest ways to make a statement in any room is through your choice of art. Whether you choose something soft and simple, or loud and bold, artwork will brighten and blend into your bathroom.
If you’re more of the ‘go big or go home’ kind of person, you might even want to think about adding a gallery to your bathroom. You can scatter the artworks along the walls, and watch your bathroom come alive.
However, don’t limit yourself to just picking up some canvases from the store. If you’re willing to delve into a bit of DIY-creativity, designate a weekend to painting your own bathroom decor. No one even needs to know they were painted by you.
Modern interior design is always looking for the next big thing, and who knew that would involve your vanity? If you’re looking for a little bit of originality to add to your small bathroom, how does mounting your vanity sound? Not only will this save a little bit of space and actually make your bathroom look bigger, it’ll also grant you more space underneath for storing whatever you need.
If mounting your vanity feels like a step too far, there is something else you could try. Consider installing a round, standing vanity instead of the classic square vanity. Not only will this look fantastic in a small space, it’ll actually reduce your risk of bumping into things. Unfortunately, we’ve all been there and jabbed our hips into the corner of a sharp vanity, so if you’re incredibly stumped for space and need a way to minimise the risk of hurting yourself, then a round vanity is the way to go!
