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.
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.
Bathroom furniture is an integral part of any bathroom, and has to stand an incredible amount of wear and tear, water splashes and clouds of steam. So, whether you're totally renovating your bathroom or sprucing it up with new furniture, it's important to ensure that the bathroom furniture you get will both suit your needs and stand the test of time. That's why we've asked bathroom owners to rate not only the bathroom brand they bought their suite from (toilet, sink and bath) but their bathroom furniture too. Below, you can find out what customers though of B&Q, Bathstore and Homebase bathroom furniture when pitched against online bathroom suppliers and independents. he majority of people we surveyed (55%) bought their bathroom furniture from or through an independent company/DIY store or tradesman (ie a plumber or builder). But of those who bought their furniture from a well-known brand, most went to Bathstore, followed by B&Q and Homebase.
