If there is no room on the walls near the sink for a hand towel ring or hook, take it to the countertop. Designer Jennifer Foster filled a red tray with a small towel stand for a boy’s bathroom. Decorative hand towels also are an easy way to make a bathroom look more polished, and designers often opt for ones with simple patterns such as stripes.
A corner vanity leaves the majority of floor space open in this traditional, neutral bathroom. A marble countertop and a decoratively framed mirror are simple but effective textural additions. A bright red orchid and hand towel bring a pop of color to the neutral palette.
