3. The finishing touches
Next step, apply the style of your chosen trend. The fishing touches are what will really bring your bathroom together- they add a new dimension to your space and envelopes you the moment you walk in.
So come instantly transform your space with the following tips and tricks.
a. Light fixtures and hardware
Metal accessories in the bathroom are one of the first things people notice. Swapping out light fixtures, hardware are easy and affordable ways to up your style in a small space. Just create a uniform look by using subtle repetition through style, finish, materials and shape. For instance, I would say a gold or brushed nickel finish is a great idea to bring in a classy look or a black finish for an industrial feel.
Your mirror likely takes up the biggest amount of wall space specially in small bathrooms. Therefore, give your bathroom a facelift by trading in your old mirror for a new one. My suggestion? I am loving the trend of round mirrors with a unique wooden or delicate gold frame right now!
c. Small Accessories
Accessories like soap dish, soap dispenser, tumblers, and toothbrush holder are all an opportunity to inject colour or add another level of detailing to your space. Thus, think about the other materials that are already present in your bathroom and select accessories that will pair nicely and complement the rest of the room.
No bathroom is complete without a candle, it brings in warmth and a sense of spa. Candles creates an atmosphere around the bath and bring a subtle, relaxing scent to your bathroom. Moreover, one can always experiment with fragrances of the candles. My personal favourite is the Bath and Body Works Rose candle at the moment.
In addition, candle diffusers are a great option to create a mood.
e. Bath linens

You obviously need towels and most often, they’ll be laying out—so they might as well be pretty! You can turn your daily shower or bath into a decadent experience to your bathroom by simply choosing the right bath linens. Pick out a few accent colours for your towels, bathrobes and bathmats which go with your theme.
Bring life into the space with plants. Whether it a small bamboo plant, a succulent or a stem of a flower, adding greenery in the bathroom space never fails to create a happy and lively vibe. Also no matter what the theme is, a plant is always a good idea!
g. Layer it all
One of the quickest and easiest ways to create a sense of luxury is to layer items. I have used this trick many times in my bathroom styling projects. Stacking a soap dish on top of slightly bigger trivet with a candle and hand lotion or placing rollers of hand towel on a tray with a succulent by its side never fails to create a luxe vibe.
