Older homes have small bathrooms with lots of crannies, nooks and random walls that usually go unused. Get the best out of such surfaces and never let a spot turn into a dead space.
In a newer home, or on a tighter budget, families may decide that a less extensive renovation is needed. Updating fixtures is another way to freshen the overall look of the room. If the fixtures are still rose pink or olive green, colors that were popular decades ago, it may be time to consider investing the bulk of the budget in updates.
If your bathroom has a large tub, you can free up some space by replacing it with a standup shower or a more modern smaller tub. If there is a large vanity sink, replace it with a pedestal sink that is smaller. You can install a corner shelf to make up for the cabinet space you would be losing when you replaced the vanity. Remove all the clutter from the bathroom that you do not need. Behind the toilet, you could put a shelving unit where you can store some extra towels, toilet paper, etc.
Special bathroom paints are being developed by almost all reputed paint manufacturers in the market. These are essentially acrylic-latex based waterproof paints with anti bacterial/ fungal additives. The range of lovely colours these are available in makes them a very tempting choice for a cheerful bath decor scheme.
An easy way to further accentuate your custom bathroom cabinetry is to match its own hardware with that of the room itself. Taps, plug holes, towel rails and toilet paper holders can all be matched with the hardware on your cabinets to create a consistent look throughout the whole space.

Whether it would be the traditional white, light hues or a mixture of shades and colors is a personal decision. Antique or modern styles of fittings and furniture are another decision. Avoid clutter and keep some area free to avoid getting wedged in. Plan it all, according to available space and budget. A vanity and mirror fixed to the wall above the floor create some room. Shelves high up on the wall to save floor space too.
