How do you create a pretty space that you would love to use each morning and before you go to bed at night? Some may think that it's unnecessary to decorate the bathroom, but it would make a lot of difference to have a private space that you can truly be proud of. After all, a refreshing space can help you relax and forget the worries of another long day.

If you're planning to give your bathroom an upgrade, here are must-see photos that will surely give you a creative boost:

We often see bare bathrooms that lack life and personality. Turn things around by choosing bold wall treatments. Who would miss this Bisazza mosaic portrait of Audrey Hepburn? You can also work with mosaic tiles or add interesting wall decals such as your favorite country, destination, or even a calming scenery.

To help you forget about work and other worries, a spa-like bathroom is your best bet! While it's not always possible to add a bathtub in a snap, you can have mood lighting or warm yellow lights to set the mood. Place a tray with scented candles and a vase of flowers on the counter too.

The whitewashed louvered doors add a charming country touch to this bathroom. For a similar feel, you can also conceal your private space by choosing a sliding door that somehow blends with the walls. Complete the look with wall-mounted shelves and a cabinet as extra storage.

Frames, prints, and mirrors can help liven up plain bathroom walls in an instant. Keep things interesting by choosing frames in different designs and sizes. These pieces can add character and personality to your bathroom. Choose ones with ornate details too for a special touch.

A TV in the bathroom? Yes, please! You can watch the news while getting ready for work or even your favorite movie while you're trying to "concentrate."

Whether you're renovating a personal bathroom or a shared space, you can definitely make a statement! Aside from choosing intricate details for the ceiling and windows, you can also add extra unexpected elements. How about a capiz divider or sliding door to conceal the shower area? This touch would leave guests in awe.

A large, open floor space gives you freedom to decorate and style the bathroom according to your needs. Take inspiration from this space. The owner was able to add a table and a couple of chairs that make routines easier. If your space allows, you can bring in extra furniture pieces and a floor-length vanity mirror too! With this mirror, you can easily check your outift and overall look.

RL Tip: Love the wall treatment behind the table? It features lemon and gray mosaic tiles that create an interesting pattern. Feel free to visit home depots for tiles that help brighten up your private space.
