Once you’ve upgraded the lighting quality of your bathroom, paint is the next quick and easy upgrade to the bathroom. Pick light colors for large surfaces like the walls and save the darker, richer tones for accents. Check how your color choices look in your upgraded lighting before you paint, since color temperature can change a color’s shade.
Bathrooms are one of the most popular and commonly remodeled rooms in the home. And since they are a high-traffic space (and one where updates are noticeable), doing so can have a significant effect on resale value.
There are many options for bathroom flooring so first consider our tips for selecting a material for your floors, which will help you choose what works best for your space. In general, larger floor tiles and patterns are subtle and better for small bathrooms. If you put ceramic tile on the floor look for a grade of 1 or 2, a water absorption rating of less than 7% and a coefficient of friction above .60, which are slip resistant and stand up to water.
Define zones in the room by using a different tile in the shower. You’ll want to use a tile that has a water-absorption rating of less than 3 percent (lower than what’s recommended for the floors) and has good traction (a coefficient of friction that’s greater than or equal to .60).
Richly-veined marble in the bathroom can split the space like an artistic statement. By adding warm wooden cabinets, this effect is diluted into a warm and inviting feeling. The zebra art on the wall gives the space a wild feel, while the overall vibe is immersed in bright natural light. You’ll be surprised to see how many stunning details can be found in the luxurious penthouse this bathroom belongs to.
