Gray tile. Enough said.

My master bath as well as the kitchen came with drab grey tile. The shower is the smallest shower I have ever been in. The bathroom walls have a fake stucco kind of finish. Weird. Fortunately, it is a good sized room. Houzz and Lowes, come on in!!

Okay this depends on a) how long before you plan on remodeling, and b) how much you want to spend. So, if a total gut job is not in the game plan for a few years . Here goes ; the sink and tub appear to be off white so paint the walls off white over the stucco, ( it will have to be skim coat over someday, or removed altogether and new dry wall ) paint the cabinets the same off white and put new hardware on . These are things you can do yourself without spending a fortune, of course this is assuming you will be remodeling in a few years. Personally the entire bath is a gut someday, but you just want it to be tolerable for now.

The good thing about grey is that you can mix it with so many colors. If you decide to paint your cabinets, say a grey similar to the tub, then you can use an accent color for lighting, or accessories, that you like. Try searching Houzz bathrooms with key words "grey, pop". There are so many. Here is an example

Jenbr323, another easy thing to do would be to change the handles and hardware that is gold, with stainless steel/nickel. I think gray looks much better with that than with gold.

What is in the area behind the tub? Can you post a photo? and also a photo from the wall looking at the door.

I'd paint the cabinets and the walls white so the bathroom looks bigger and the tiles, if you can afford the change.
