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 Putting new tile over a foundation rife with dry rot or severely outdated or junky plumbing is only delaying a potentially huge problem down the road.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.
It’s easy to overlook a mirror. After all, when we look at one, we see a reflection of so many other things before we even see the mirror itself. But a good mirror is an essential component to many rooms, especially your bathroom. There are many options for size, style and shape to choose from, so I’ve put together this guide to help you put things into perspective and get your bathroom mirror just right.
This bathroom shows an interesting blend of traditional farmhouse and modern shapes. The claw-foot tub and apron-front sinks are classic farmhouse elements, while the angled ceiling is reminiscent of the gables often seen in farmhouses. Hexagonal tiles also hark back to a farmhouse choice.
Warm up with “wood.” Porcelain tiles that look convincingly like wooden planks are gaining in popularity, and it’s easy to see why. Using real wood can be risky in bathrooms, as the moisture can cause damage. Wood-effect floor tiles offer the warmth and good looks of wood while being practical, water-resistant and sturdy. They come in shades from grays to red-browns, so choose something that works with the rest of your home’s style and color scheme.
