Small Bath With Major Splash
Impressive ideas for the bathroom―from dramatic sinks to a frosty green color scheme.
Add Interest to Your Walls
Mirrors aren't all that can be mounted in a bath. Hanging a small shelf is an inexpensive idea, and it gives you more storage and display space. In the Baker's bath, a vintage black fan sits high in a corner.
Hike Up the Tile
If you've found a tile you love, make it work for all its worth. Don't just cover the lower half of the wall, take the tiles two-thirds of the way up all around the room.
Quick-Change Decorating Ideas
- Pick a relaxing paint color--a pale blue or green--and continue it onto the ceiling. You don't have to choose two paint chips; Josh and Terry used a quarter of the tint of their wall color on the ceiling. (Any paint store can reduce the pigment of a specific paint to mix a custom color.)
- Try ceramic knobs instead of metal ones. They come in a variety of colors. Josh and Terry used black-and-white checkered knobs to pop against white cabinetry.
