I've decided to redo the guest bathroom before the wedding shower for our oldest son and his fiancée. The shower is March 17, less than 7 weeks away. I know we probably shouldn't take this project on at this time, and no one really cares what the bathroom looks like as long as it's clean, but we're doing it anyway. Let's just say that Hubby is not as excited about it as I am. He knows I can be a little slow making decisions. That's why I need your help.
|Our guest bath since the 1980's|
We're hiring someone to put in the tub and tile, the countertop and sinks, and the floor. Hubby will do the plumbing and electrical work, and I'll paint.
I've picked white subway tile for the tub/shower, and I've chosen brushed nickel faucets, lighting, and hardware. The sinks will be white porcelain with a beige/brown granite counter. The existing mirror will be trimmed and framed with dark stained wood. All the cabinets and molding will be white.
We have to remove wallpaper, so the walls will probably need some drywall work or at least some texture. I thought we could use beadboard on all the walls. First question: Should I extend the beadboard all the way to the ceiling or stop at chair rail height?
Now for the wall color. I was thinking about painting it a neutral beige and bringing in color with accessories. I'm leaning towards aqua towels and dark brown accessories. Question 2: Do you have a suggestion for the wall color?
I'm totally stumped on the floor. Last question: What should I use for the floor?
If you have any ideas, please leave a comment. Any suggestions on the walls and the flooring would be greatly appreciated!
