For example, Burgundy bathroom furniture in the interior of a small bathroom if the walls will be several times brighter and the furniture will not be too massive.

Most bathrooms are made pretty standard, like there is some unwritten rules – the Cabinet under the sink, multiple floor cabinets, mirror, Laundry basket. This kit often «crowns» ordinary ceramic floor tiles and walls. Approach to lighting also in diversity – one or two lamp on the ceiling and side illumination of the mirror.
