Repainting or wallpapering your bathroom is an inexpensive way to add color.

In the small bathroom shown here, the one-dimensional look of paint wouldn't live up to the rest of the remodel. Hanging wallpaper would be easy, but the patterns all seemed too busy -- until the owners discovered a line of wallpaper that resembles a faux finish. The one they chose complements the room perfectly with its blend of greens, aquas, and blues.

More Ways to Wake Up Walls:

  • Bold wallpaper makes any dull bathroom dazzle.
  • Paint walls a flat white if you want to add wallpaper some day but can't find one that you like. That way, you won't have to repaint when you're ready to paper, because the white paint will act as a great base.
  • Bright colors, when balanced with white trim, make a strong statement in a small space.
  • In addition to paint and wallpaper, consider other materials, such as cultured stone, for your walls. It comes in various shades and gives the look, texture, and feel of solid stone.
