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.
Black and white, this classic color combination works well for a color scheme for any style of bathroom – from the very traditional to the very contemporary (and everywhere in between and aside). Let's just take a minute to appreciate the lovely wiry chandelier in the background here, shall we? Warmed up grey-blue and white, one way to warm up your lighter bathroom color scheme is to incorporate warm contrasting shades into the space – blue and orange are complementary colors, so this antique brass or bronzed mirror frame and firey-hued flora really bring the bathroom to life. Charcoal grey and white, modern and sexy, this color combination adds an almost romantic vibe to the bathroom. Letting your fixtures (sink, tub, shower, and toilet) serve as the white component of the color scheme enhances the minimalism of a contemporary space and contrasts beautifully against a moody hue.
I painted over the Masonite with a really good primer and then I decoupaged tissue paper in vivid colors over it — indigo blue, sunny yellow, even some silver tissue paper. It looks luminous, freckled, almost like water. Above the shower stall, I did much brighter colors and I sealed it all with a water-based polyurethane." While Cy applied his decoupage directly to the wall, his "simple French" look would work just as well applied to foam core or poster board, framed or not, and then hung on a bathroom wall for a splash of color you could change out whenever you want. "Paint the walls, or if they're mostly tile, paint the ceiling!" says Cy. "If the color doesn't work, you can paint it something else." And should you need to sell the house later, and believe the accepted wisdom that only white walls are appropriate in "For Sale" bathrooms, you can spend an afternoon painting it back. Or for just a minimal change, paint a frame and hang it on the bathroom mirror with Velcro.
