What Houzz contributors are saying:
Colour up your bathroom suitesNot only did ’80s homeowners have to pick the colour of their bathroom walls and floors, they also had to worry about the shade of their bathroom suites. Baths, sinks and loos came in a range of delightful shades, including a high-tech two tone – yes, this really was a thing. If you’d decorated in the 1970s, your avocado suite was probably still going strong in the ’80s, but all traces of green were ripped out of bathrooms in the years that followed.We’re not suggesting a revival of the all-over avocado bathroom suite (yet), but there has been a leaning toward green wash spaces lately. The shade usually appears on tiles and wall paint, but this beautiful bathroom shows how a lick of avocado on the underside of period-style baths and sinks can look simply delicious.
5. Pick the type of sink The next step is to determine the type of sink, such as an undermount, drop-in, vessel or a wall-mount, as seen here. After that, you can choose the colour and material for your sink, whether it’s porcelain, natural stone or something else.
