The low contrast bathroom sink graphic shows a sink with a soap dish and soap holder, cup, toothbrush holder with toothbrushes, medicine cabinet with medicine bottles, light switch, hand towel, and hairbrush. All the items are a light color against light colored walls and a light colored countertop. The labels on the medicine bottles are printed in a light text against a light background, all providing examples of insufficient visual contrast.
