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.
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).
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.
