Complement a simple toilet with an interesting or unusual accessory such as an unconventional toilet paper holder meant to steal a smile every time you enter the bathroom. Other accessories you can use in the bathroom in the proximity of the toilet include artwork you can display on the walls, potted plants, bookshelves, etc.

An eye-catching color combo.

Color is your best friend when decorating utilitarian spaces such as the bathroom. And we’re not necessarily talking about bold shades such as neon pinks or reds. For example, use the contrast between a light and a dark shade to create an interesting design to surround the toilet with.

Soft lighting.

Create an intimate and pleasant ambiance by using soft lighting around the toilet. Sconces are great options. To emphasize this type of décor and atmosphere, you should also use a warm color and soft textures.

Location.

It’s important to find the ideal spot for the toilet in your bathroom. If possible, it could fit in a semi-private nook. Perhaps you can rearrange the bathroom in such a way to give this area more privacy. And speaking of nooks, they’re great for accommodating open shelves.

One-piece designs.

One-piece toilets have a low-profile and offer a series of advantages such as the fact that they let you save a little bit of space, they’re easy to clean, durable and long-lasting and have water-saving designs.

You can create a private corner for the toilet next to the sink. A one-piece toilet would fit perfectly there, allowing you to maintain a continuous and fluid design, even including a small shelf above it for displaying a small vase or plant.
