The second bathroom pictured here is not only a clever use of space, but also beautiful use of colour. The blue on the walls picks up on the colours of the floor tiles, but only painting the top section of the walls in this colour means the room is still light and bright. I also love the use of gold/bronze fittings to add a touch of warmth.

Thank you for writing such a comprehensive article to finally set my mind straight regarding bathroom tiles. I have been researching this subject on the internet for some time now as I plan to renovate our teeney tiny bathroom. One webpage says small white tiles, the next screen reads large black tiles
Not only have you provided us with the correct information, your explaining the reasoning behind your suggestion is invaluable.
Thank you again
