For many, the bathroom provides a sanctuary where you can enjoy a relaxing bath or do your nightly routine. At Beth Haley Design, we think your bathroom’s design should reflect your personal style since you’re the one enjoying the space.

Today, we are sharing simple bathroom upgrades, from painting your vanity to adding storage space and wall murals.

Bathroom Design Ideas for a Quick Upgrade

Paint Your Vanity

To quickly revamp your bathroom, update your vanity’s cabinetry with a colorful shade. Adding a fun color to your bathroom is a great way to refresh old cabinetry, and it’s even more impactful if you swap out the existing hardware as well. For a more dramatic look, try a deep, saturated shade.

While deep blue cabinets might overpower a large living room, the color can shine in the smaller confines of a bathroom.

Add Extra Storage Space

Sturdy, aesthetically pleasing storage shelves should be a priority in your bathroom. Keep washcloths and towels on the lower shelves, and stick your non-essentials up higher.

Make It Feel Luxurious

You can bring the spa experience to your home with simple, luxurious touches. This bathtub area is instantly upgraded with the addition of a gorgeous plant, fragrant candles, and a wooden bathtub tray, perfect for an afternoon soak. We wouldn’t mind that glass of champagne, either!

Commission a Wall Mural

Bathrooms are a great place to make a big impact. Consider adding a fun wall mural, and experiment with bright colors and visually interesting designs. This client commissioned a friend and local artist to paint a mural, giving them no direction and full creative freedom!


This bathroom is both playful and sophisticated, thanks to the addition of this spirited wall mural.
