Place some floating shelves that hold some décor and towels in place. For the walls, you could mix white tiles and wooden slabs, since the brown and white colors, like those on the vanity, enhance the coziness of the room.

A circular mirror ties everything together, and adding a vase of fresh flowers enhances a feel of freshness and nature.

Minimalistic and Classy

In the spirit of “less is more,” you could keep it simple by blending white, gold, and hints of black for elegance.

The gold accents on the simple yet stylish mirror frame match the towel ring and faucets, and the twin sconce handles blend well with the grey chevron wallpaper to bring warmth to the room.

With only a potted plant as décor, this leaves the room uncluttered but tasteful.

Dark and Mysterious

As an alternative to bright themes, you can never go wrong with dark themes by installing dark patterned walls for a mysterious feel.

The uniquely designed mirror frame and the placement of candles on the sconces facing each other on the walls add a hint of vintage elegance.

A brightly colored marble sink coupled with a pot of white flowers adds sophistication.

Sticking with a minimalistic approach, you could have minimal elements in the room and let the colors and patterns exude an inviting atmosphere.

Consider placing a white wallpaper with palm-leaf patterns for tropical hints and a circular mirror with halo lighting for warmth.

The green color blends well with the white on the lower half of the room’s walls, and the pink sink with a gold faucet and pipe make the room fun.

Install Dark Brown Wall Tiles

A unique take on dark themes would be to have the entire room’s walls covered in dark brown patterned tiles that complement the dark sink and its brown wooden stand.

The oval statement mirror adds a sense of timelessness and luxury and blends well with the shiny appearance of the wall tiles.

The lamp on the wall subtly illuminates the room and adds a luxurious feel, complementing all other elements for the room to mimic a sanctuary.

Keep it Simple and Bright

Sometimes, all you desire in a powder room is brightness. The hints of gold in the wall tile patterns, mirror frame, sconces, faucets, and sink stand incorporate luxury and blend well with the white backdrop and bright marble sink.

The lack of elements like towels and shelves makes the room simple yet elegant.

Keep it Chic and Classy

Make the most of a narrow space by strategically placing a round statement mirror directly above a marble sink fixated on the wall.

Also, mount two sconces on the ceiling to hang low, close to, and on each side of the mirror to illuminate the room and establish elegance. 

Place a fresh flower in a pot on the sink directly below either sconce and patterned floor tiles for a chic finish.

Nothing inspires freshness like the appearance of bouquets. Get a wallpaper with bouquets imprinted on them.

For brightly colored flowers, install vibrant sconces that match the petals.

Leave the sink uncluttered and place a small flower vase with a flower, preferably one that matches those on the wallpaper.

Perhaps you prefer vibrance and nature, just like spring season. Consider getting a wallpaper of floral prints with a baby blue backdrop that emulates a garden with the clear blue sky as a background on a warm afternoon.

Then, add a dark marble sink and gold accents on the sconces, faucets, sink stand, and mirror frame to enhance the luxurious feel.

If you aim for a rustic design, install leafy wallpaper with a vibrant backdrop.

Complement this with woody tones on wall shelves, the lower vanity compartment, and a wooden floor for a more nature-inspired aesthetic.

Then, decorate lightly with some art pieces, a potted plant, and a frame on the shelves.

Another take on dark themes is a dark brown patterned monochrome wallpaper contrasted by a cream marble sink with bold stripe patterns to add some drama to the decor.

Add a signature mirror with a unique frame that lends boldness and opulence.

Sometimes, you need a dreamy environment to wander off to, but indoors. Get a wallpaper with patterns of cotton buds flying in the air against a blue backdrop emulating a clear blue sky, bringing you in tune with nature.

Add a large rectangular mirror, a hanging bright artistic lamp, and a brightly colored vanity for warmth and classiness.

Although Halloween comes once a year, you do not have to wait till October to get fun and creepy.

Install a signature mirror, paint most of the room’s walls white, and add dark tiles.

Besides the mirror, place some bat fixtures on the wall and a towel with scary images woven into it for spooky and fun creativity.
