Put a piece that's really fantastic, really pretty over the toilet," says LaDonna, "because once that door closes, people definitely spend some time looking around and getting an impression." Unless the art's going to be in a central bathroom with lots of traffic, "moisture's not such a worry," she says. "But if you're placing art somewhere moisture might get to it, opt for something that's not that expensive." The bathroom's also a great place for those bright posters and large prints you never know what to do with, says Cy. "You know, the ones you keep around but you think are too expensive to mat and frame? Buy an inexpensive poster frame and hang them in the bathroom. No one cares what the frame looks like there, and if the moisture gets to one and it ripples, you can switch it out.
If the product isn't certified, then you put yourself and your family in danger. Be sure to check for this certification and guarantee that the faucet is lead-free. Look for NSF Seal of Certification. The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) oversees the "certification of plumbing products and materials". It also "helps confirm that they meet applicable American or international standards for a particular use". The NSF states, "Faucets and plumbing products intended for contact with drinking water should be tested and certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 61: Drinking Water System Components." The American National Standard ensures that these products have a limited amount of impurities. Look for the certification mark on the product, such as "NSF 61" (drinking water components) or "NSF pw" (drinking water components and others).
The final selection of your bathroom's color palette will depend not just on the color of your tub or the tone of your tile, but also on the overall look you want to achieve. A bathroom that incorporates white marble, white porcelain and pale wood will have an entirely different look with soft green walls than with walls of metallic blue. Ask yourself: Do I want my bathroom to be relaxing or energizing? Trendy or timeless? Whatever mood you're after, the process of choosing a color will feel less overwhelming if you take it step by step. "First," says Joan Osburn, of Osburn Design in San Francisco, "pick all the colors that you like, no holds barred. Then narrow them down to two or three options. Look at them in different lights and at different times of day.
