Bathroom Talk: What are quick ways to refresh your bathroom without undertaking a full remodel?
Bathroom Talk: What are some remodel projects that will give you a high impact in the bathroom?
- Add color and texture with paint and tile:
- Add a splash of color to your morning ritual, by refreshing the wall. Choose tiling for a more in-depth remodel or painting if you are completing a few mini-projects.
- Select the right tile that offers both form and function to ensure it can withstand every day wear and tear.
·Floor vs. wall tile: Floor tiles are usually larger than wall tiles and are easier to install. Heavy-duty floor tile, such as Daltile White Ceramic Octagon Dot Mosaic Tile, can withstand high foot traffic and adds a unique design to the bathroom.
- Glazed ceramic tile, such as the Bright Snow White wall tile, is designed for minimum wear and tear and should only be used on the wall.
·Unique tile options: Daltile Parkwood Brown Tile is great for those who want to keep the look of wood floors in their bathroom and incorporate a rustic style. Multi-color natural stone slate tile, such as the MS International Multi Classic Tile, is great for adding a pop of color and texture to traditional or contemporary styles.
·The right wall color will make your other bathroom updates stand out. For a look that takes center stage, choose a color that complements your countertop, faucet and hardware.
·Protect bathroom walls from water, stains and mildew with hardworking, stain-resistant paint. BEHR Premium Plus Ultra interior paint protects your surfaces long after the paint is dry, is easy to apply and can be cleaned with soap and water.

Bathroom Talk: How can you add a finishing touch to your space?
Add a finishing touch:
·Switch out your bath hardwareCoordinating bath hardware items such as hooks, towel bars and a toilet paper holder can liven up your décor and add impact to your baths overall design. For example, the Delta Mandara towel bar, towel ring and toliet paper holder complement traditional style elements and pull a look together.

Update your faucet: If replacing the vanity doesn't fit in your budget, consider changing out your faucet for a quick weekend project. Updating your faucet with a spot-resistant option that resists fingerprints and water spots makes for easy cleaning and a high-end look. Consider a low-flow model, such as the MOEN Banbury 4 in. 2-Handle High-arc Faucet, for the added benefit of conserving water.
