Fiberglass gelcoat: Also referred to as a fiberglass-reinforced plastic, the Gelcoat creates a gloss and easy-to-clean surface. It is considerably cheaper than acrylic, but its not as durable and can crack if something hits it hard enough. Ceramic: The ceramic bathtub is often used as an accent piece in old-fashioned bathrooms. It can either be made of smooth, glossy ceramic inside and out, or covered with ceramic tiles on its outer surface. Copper: A copper bathtub is rarely used, but when it is, it can create an elegant feel to any bathroom. Its aesthetic appeal, durability and lack of maintenance certainly are great advantages; however it usually comes with a large price tag. Less is always more in the bathroom, and ideally it should be clutter free with a clean look and feel. Storage options to hide away toiletries, towels, linens and other necessities would make a good addition to any bathroom.
Large scale tiles are definitely on trend when it comes to bathroom floors right now. If you choose to go that direction, you can use the same tile cut in smaller sizes in a different area of the bathroom. For example if you use 12 x 24 tiles on the floor, you can use the same tile on the bathroom floor in 2 x 2s to continue the color across the entire floor, but creating a more slip free shower floor. For the kid's bathroom I wanted to go with something classic and something very light and airy. There are no windows in this bathroom so I wanted something that would bounce around as much light as possible. As soon as I saw this tumbled hexagon tile at The Tile Shop I knew we had to use it on the floor. This was my must have tile and would also act as the show stopper since it is a little bit unexpected and has a lot of pattern. I also knew that I wanted to do grey cabinets to keep with the color scheme of my home, so we ended up choosing a larger than normal scale (4 x 8) matte white subway tile for the shower surround. It comes in both a glossy and matte finish and after getting both samples we are going to go with the matte.
Buy colorful, off-the-shelf window treatments and shower curtains, or consider custom. "That way you can pick pretty fabric that goes with your color scheme and coordinate it to look nice with something on the wall," says LaDonna. "There are lots of options when you go the custom route." If you have one of those bathrooms with the rare empty wall, consider tacking a bright, batik bedspread to cover it, hanging straight down or in easy folds. "Use the top of the toilet for bright, fun items," says Cy. He, for example, placed a bright yellow vase on the toilet tank that picked up other colors in the bathroom and holds corn husk flowers he got on vacation. He also decoupaged fake vases on the wall behind the tank and says his Ugly Duckling bathroom is now his favorite room of the house.
