Use a monochromatic color scheme in a small bathroom: Depending on the color you choose and how much natural light illuminates your space one color can make your bathroom feel larger.

Raise the temperature in a black-and-white bathroom by adding warm metal fixtures and a glass mosaic tile floor in opalescent shades of gold. Use large textured tiles embossed with a pattern for rich texture that’s not overwhelming to the eye.

There’s something about the way that light reflects off of copper that makes it particularly eye-catching. For this reason it will soon become a go-to choice for anyone looking to create a bathroom that is truly a showstopper. Consider using it for the focal point of the space like a large soaking tub or consider mixing and matching it with another metal.
Bring in natural light from above: Interior bathrooms don’t always have the opportunity to have a window in the wall. Consider bringing in light with a skylight or a sun lighting tube. A sun lighting tube is installed from the roof down into your bathroom and utilizes reflective material to bounce light down into the room. You will be surprised how bright your bathroom looks when you add natural light from above.
