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.
Drawer units freestanding cupboards shelves with pull-out storage baskets wall cabinets with mirrors full-height units with shelves and/or cupboards. And you don't have to stick to the well-known bathroom brands for furniture – many other stores, including John Lewis and Argos, sell freestanding bathroom furniture and bathroom cabinets. Just check that the furniture is intended for use in the bathroom, as it will be exposed to a lot of moisture and heat. You also don't have to get bathroom furniture. Think also about small-scale solutions that don't involve furniture. For example, would getting a couple of pretty baskets or wire racks to store toiletries work just as well as a cabinet? Again, think about what you will need to store and what space you have. Measure out not only the whole room size but also the 'leftover' space once you have a toilet, sink, bath or shower fitted. Then you'll be able to see what storage you will have room for, which will determine the type you get.
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.
