With a little paint and minimal investment, we think Megs could have a more inspiring bathroom. This counter’s neutral color can be a good foil for a number of interesting color schemes. The easiest and most inexpensive fixes would be to consider swapping out the the knobs and adding some accessories. She might also consider painting. Even one wall would add great impact. Bright red would be one good foil for this tan color. Another way to go is to paint the entire bathroom the color of counter. This would draw attention away from the counter and make any accessories stand out. One thing we’d definitely think worth the investment is swapping out that light fixture for something better looking and more flattering. Just stick the current one in the back of the closet for when you leave.

What do you guys think? We'd love to hear your fixes for this all-too-common problem below.
