When you've experienced the blissfulness of a five-star bathroom, complete with a freestanding soaking tub, double rain shower, and double vanities, it's difficult to get inspired by your own small rental bathroom. But the truth is, you don't need a full gut reno to breathe life back into your space. Sometimes, just a few well-placed accessories are all you need to make your bathroom feel brand new. The trick is to have a clear plan for the type of feel you want to convey with your space and to pick the accessories accordingly and be ruthless about excess clutter.

By upgrading your vanity mirror, hardware, linens, and a few other small accessories, you can entirely transform your bathroom from uninspiring to curated.
