What color should I paint my bathroom? How about the floor? Difficulty: existing wall tiles are pink and I don't know what to do with them. Budget and skills are somewhat limited.
My bathroom is pink. Pinkish walls, pink flowers on the floor tiles, pink pattern on the wall tiles. Pink is my least favorite color and it's driving me nuts. Problem is, I'm terrible at choosing colors. My wardrobe is gray and black because it's easier that way. My husband is no help in this. He'll be happy to help paint or whatever, but coming up with a plan is my job. I'd like to do what I can for $200 or less.
Here's what we're starting with: pic1
. The colors look more true to life in the first photo. My three problems are floor, walls, and the tiles on the wall around the sink and toilet.
Floor: 1'x1' square self-adhesive plastic tiles that look like they were installed hastily. Most of the corners don't match up neatly. White and gray with pink and green floral pattern. On a limited budget, I'll probably need to scrape these up with a chisel and install... something similar? Something that looks less cheap? Are there any better alternatives for someone with my limited budget and skillset?
Walls: pale pink but easily painted, if only we could decide on a color.
Tiles on wall: These are just on one wall: the wall with the sink and toilet on it. Whitish with a design of dusty pink cracks. I don't think we're brave enough to rip these out, rent a wet saw, and try to re-tile ourselves. I'm hesitant to rip them out at all - the wall behind probably has a ton of adhesive on it, right? Would that be very hard to remove? Having something waterproof there seems like a good idea since it does tend to be a damp area, especially the space between sink and shower. I tried searching online about painting tiles and it seems like not a great idea if the area tends to have moisture frequently. So I'm thinking I should leave the tiles and pick wall and floor colors that will look ok next to pink...
The other complicating factor is that our towels (which are very nice fluffy towels that I'm pretty fond of) are red, brown, and tan. Ideally I'd like to keep these and find a color scheme that doesn't clash. I'm definitely up for replacing the shower curtain and rugs though.
So, what do you think?
