It can be challenging to think of a bathroom design. When you get stumped, sometimes, the safest way to do is stick to whites. However, these looks aren't your only choices. Here are other stylish ideas that you can consider: 

1. Deck the walls with black tiles.

Don't worry, black tiles won't make your room dark and cramped. In fact, black tiles can make your bathroom so sleek that it looks upscale. Find similar tiles at Vintage Hardware PH

2. Use an old sewing machine table as your bathroom counter.

Not only can you repurpose an old sewing machine as a desk, but you can also use it in your powder room. Complement it with a wood-framed mirror so it won't look out of place. 

3. Go for a deep shade of purple.

This can add a regal feel to your bathroom, making you feel like a queen. Complement it with white and beige fixtures and accessories, and complete the royal look with a chandelier. 

4. Add a vintage feel by using subway tiles.

A lot of people are into subway tiles—and for a good reason! Subway tiles instantly add character to a space, whether it's in the kitchen or in the bathroom, because of their vintage feel. Use dark grout to create an "old" feel. Find subway tiles at Vintage Hardware PH.  

5. Choose an earthy color scheme. 

Add a touch of nature by going for colors like olive green, sage green, and browns. Put a pot of indoor plant or succulent to complete the earthy look. 

6. Use warm lighting. 

If you're not the type to choose a bold bathroom design, there's nothing wrong in going for the tried-and-tested white. Make it cozy by using warm lighting and add a few accessories like framed wall décor. 

7. Go retro.

If you want to go bold and make a statement, try a retro look. Pick vibrant colors like carnation pink and bright green. Add a gold-framed mirror and floral wall tiles to add a vintage feel, and if you can, punctuate the look with a clawfoot bathtub. Get a clawfoot bathtub at Kuysen, 236 E. Rodriguez Sr. Ave., Brgy. Don Manuel, Quezon City, tel. no. (02) 740-7509, 411- 9571.
