As an often neglected part of your home, the level of design that your bathroom sports can be the telling point of how well your home is decorated.

Bathroom walls are usually plain, and hanging an artistic poster doesn't make much difference. HGTV recommends using items from thrift stores and flea markets to adorn your commode. A small dresser's drawers, when removed, can be secured to a wall to create shelves, and add even more visual appeal when the inside bottoms of the drawers are decorated with paint or photographs. The same technique can be used with antique mirrors - hanging a few above your sink serves a purpose while also contributing to the decor.
