Select a color scheme you want to incorporate into the old bathroom. This makes choosing decorative accents an easier task, as you coordinate with the colors you have chosen. You can either match the old bathroom to the rest of your home's decor, or get bold and creative with bright and vivid colors.
Select bathroom essentials such as towels, washcloths, toilet covers and a shower curtain. Make the essentials match with your chosen color scheme.
Hang the towels and washcloths near the shower or bathtub of the old bathroom to serve as functional decor.
Select a small throw rug to be placed alongside the bathtub or shower of the old bathroom. Not only does the rug serve as a way to dry your feet after a shower, it adds a decorative touch to the environment.
Select some kind of wall art to accent the color scheme of your old bathroom. Bathroom art can be almost anything you choose, such as beach scenes, floral paintings, or inspirational plaques.
Arrange assorted knickknacks around the bathroom to draw attention to the decorative accents. Candles, small statuary items and potted plants bring attractive qualities to a drab, old bathroom.
