One simple way to add style is to paint the wall and molding different colors such as molding a lighter color than than the wall or vice versa. In addition, if you have an art oject, photo, etc. you can always add a touch of unity by playing off the colors of the object and painting the wall a color that enhances the object.

It looks to me like you have a nice little spot on the wall there to hang a wall mounted towel rack... unlike a painting or photo, it adds style while being functional

Make sure there are not water lines where the mounting hardware screws need to go!

Nice colorful towels always perk up a space. Shower curtain too.

Not sure what lighting is like in there? If limited you will want to stay with light colored ceiling and walls. Some vertical striped wallpaper might be a way to add some color.

Where is the shower? Can you sketch a floorplan? Sweet Home 3D is good for such things, is free and open source.

Add a touch of luxury with a nice tile .. Small space so probably don't need a whole lot. Radiant heated floors are also super nice ... Unless you live somewhere hot. You could do a wall mounted vanity as the floor going under gives perception of more space. Small doesn't have to mean not luxury.

The shower is on the other side of the wall by the toilet. We live in south Dakota but want to do a southern style

Paint is your favourite friend.....

Paint can have a huge impact on a space. Also, you can add tiling to the wall.

Check out my blog. I also updated a small powder room with some accent tiling.

Good luck

I can't tell if there's a shower behind that wall, if I'm right, go ahead & search for shower curtains then decide on color
