Add Texture to Walls
If you are really looking for a way to change up your bathroom, one of the best bathroom updates we can recommend is adding paneling like wainscot or beadboard. You can apply it to all of your walls or just one as an accent point. Paneling a wall adds dimension to your bathroom and can add a charming countryside feel that will cheer up the space. The Spruce has some great suggestions.
Change Up The Floor
The last recommendation we have is to consider changing out your bathroom flooring. Many bathrooms still use cheap laminate. If you really want to class up your bathroom, consider a new tile floor or wood flooring. Home Depot has many great designs for these kind of projects.
