Strive for cohesion. These shutters are brilliant for lots of reasons. They echo the lines of the subway tiles for an integrated look. They ensure that this on-the-tiny-side bathroom gets a luxe window treatment without impinging on the space. And they provide privacy while letting in light.
If your budget is about $400: Get a new shower head, and then upgrade your bath linens and swap out the vanity light. Fresh linens (and a shower curtain, if using) and lighting will make the space feel cleaner, brighter and more stylish. To avoid installation issues, select vanity lights that mount to the wall in the same way as the old lights.
Pay attention to the age of your home and the remodels done by previous homeowners. Putting new tile over a foundation rife with dry rot or severely outdated or junky plumbing is only delaying a potentially huge problem down the road. You may want to wait until you can do a complete job right.
After finalizing the flooring and faucets for your bathroom, you may be tempted to give the window treatment short shrift. But a thoughtful choice can really enhance the room’s overall look — as these beautiful bathing spaces prove.
