Paint the walls in the bathroom the same dramatic color as the toilet and sink. Use a semigloss to protect the walls from moisture damage.
Paint the exterior surface of the freestanding tub a matching color. Prime the ceramic surface of the tub with an oxide primer, and then use a latex paint.
Brighten the space with white textiles. Place a deep-pile white area rug and fluffy white towels in the room to contrast with the blue fixtures.
Whitewash any wood cabinetry in the room, and accent the room with white ceramic containers.
Hang soft white sheers on windows and over the tub or shower area to bring brightness higher in the space.
Decorate the area above the towel rack with a white-framed piece of artwork. Choose a black and white photograph that has a hand-painted color accent or a floral photograph of your favorite white flower.
Frame a plain mirror with a matching whitewashed frame or an ornate carved frame painted a glossy white.
Personalize the bathroom with large, white-painted letters to reflect the homeowner’s initials. Buy the letters at a craft store and paint them yourself for an inexpensive custom touch.
