Bathrooms should usually be painted in mellow or natural color schemes. This is to keep the room feeling fresh and clean while making it seem larger.

Make your mirror centerstage. Hang it above your sink, and ensure the mirror’s frame offers an artistic and unique take to your bathroom.

Replace the Shower
