Window trim needs updating (don't mind the mismatched tile, that is how the contractor "updated" the bathroom)
How do I update bathroom window trim and medicine cabinet?
Thank you to all who helped me with my "orange peel" living room walls- they came out great! Onto my bathroom disaster. Love the floor, I painted behind the toilet black (now what do I do with it?) I have to update the medicine cabinet in the picture and do something with the window trim to try to pull this all together. Impossible feat I know! Any advice?

I would paint trim gloss white. Change out the medicine cabinet or just remove it and hang a larger mirror there.
Find a fabulous shower curtain that you love. Then pull your favourite colour out of it to paint the medicine cabinet. :)
Since your floor tile is black and white, I'd sand down and tack cloth the window frame, then prime and paint gloss white (using a bathroom durable paint ), with a very thin line of black (or a small stencil of black) down the midpoint of each vertical strip.
Purchase an updated frameless medicine cabinet with interior lighting and adjustable shelves, in either a rectangular of palladian edged style.
The black wall behind the toilet may work to make that wall appear to recede, so keep it if it works for you, but if the room is small, I'd add to that area with a small stencil, matching the tulip design on the floor, to draw the viewer's eye upward.
Good suggestion from Frugal Family Times, it may be a bit tricky with your new floor. The natural wood trim on your window is beautiful, I would hesitate to change it. The medicine cabinet has seen better days, you could replace it or paint. Your bathroom has a lot of neutrals going on, how about a nice teal for the walls above the tile, it would go with your floor and vanity, nothing too dark. The teal would go well with the wood trim on the window.
The black over the toilet has me perplexed, maybe it looks better in person.
Best to you.
You can paint the trim and vanity to match the black. That would tie all that in. Add some teal or other bright color for accent.
Hi Jill: A lot going on here:) Your medicine cabinet looks a bit larger than the normal ones, so maybe decorating the frame would be easier and cheaper. As for that black wall, maybe some white shelving would be good and put black and white knickknacks on it or them, depending on how many shelves you put up. And, perhaps paint the window trim a colour to match the walls so that it blends in a bit more. If you can do away with the blinds and put up some contact paper that lets light in but you can't see through it, even if 1/2 way up, and some cute curtains, or even a cafe curtain and no contact paper, so that the bottom 1/2 of the window is covered, and a coordinating shower curtain would be nice. Good luck
Hi Jill, I suggest painting the window trim and medicine cabinet a fresh glossy white, add a luxious shower curtain that you love, perhpas a white waffle weave with a black border trim or trim it yourself with grosgrain ribbon, add a light canvas print (maybe diy) with some silver and black and lastly add LED lighting. Since your medicine cabinet reflects your shower area, I'd also add an inexpensive (again perhaps diy) light-colored canvas print with a bit o silver, above the tile area to enjoy as you use the mirrored medicine cabinet. I keep suggesting silver since it appears your plumbinig ixtures are chrome.
Throw rug to break up the design on the floor. Plus a throw rug in front of a sink is nice when brushing your teeth on a cold morning.
I would paint all trim (yes even the medicine cabinet) a nice crisp and clean white.
You can paint your tile:

Hello. I would consider painting the vanity black an the wall tiles white to match your floor colors
I'd go for black on both to match your floor. You can add color with towels or a picture on the wall.
White trim, black vanity, neutral walls (get rid of that black wall), black trim around mirror over vanity, change blinds to 2" white instead of mini, black floating shelves over toilet
You can always paint the window trim and medicine cabinet black or other color to either have a contrast or get them to blend in more. Window and cabinet don't show in your photo.

White Trim around the Window. White inside trim and black outside of cabinet, or black inside trim and white outer frame.
You could paint the window trim and mirror in black as well - or a gloss white on the medicine cabinet would look nice too.
Okay, I am not sure what you were going for with the black area on the wall, but, the room looks too small for that on the wall. Since you have black and white flooring I would go for something more light or light gray. I love the original woodwork on the window, and consider a window film so you could keep the blinds open during the day. The wood should clean nicely. I would paint the frame of the medicine cabinet in a soft, pretty color. Did you know tile can be refinished? I redid my kitchen sink with a tile and tub kit from Rustoleum, and it was a bit of work, but came out well. If you want to paint everything white, I would go with a soft white, not a glossy stark one. Anyway, have fun with this, get some paint samples and see how different some colors look with your room throughout the day. Good luck and stay safe!
