2. Save space with a pedestal sink
Nothing looks worse than a cramped bathroom. So, if you're trying to make the most out of every inch, get a pedestal sink. These sinks come in all varieties – from antique to modern finishes – so they'll blend in with any décor. Need a place to store all of your stuff now that your cabinet is gone? No problem! Put the wall over your pedestal sink to good use with either a medicine cabinet or some bigger wall-mounted cabinets!

3. Install a light, airy shower
If you've got the space for it, install a big, glass, stand-alone shower. The glass will give it a light and airy look – and the bigger it is, the more it will feel like you're bathing in a luxurious spa, instead of your same ol' bathroom. Love the look of a giant stand-alone shower, but don't have the room for it? No problem! You can always tear out your bathtub and replace it with a glass shower. As an added benefit, your new shower won't be as big as your old tub, so you'll get to free up some floor space in the process.

4. Get new faucets
If you can't replace your entire sink and tub altogether, there is a much cheaper option that will offer a spruced-up look – new faucets! You'd be amazed at what some new chrome can do. In fact, simply changing out your faucets can change your entire room from vintage to modern!

5. Add light
We don't mean adding a bunch of light fixtures. Instead, if you want to give your bathroom the best look possible, you've got to let as much natural light in as possible! So, add windows wherever you can. Or, if you've already got windows on all of the walls, make the windows bigger. And, if you can, add a skylight. That way, you can inject a ton of sunlight into your bathroom without having to sacrifice any of your privacy.
