Tile half the bathroom wall and paint the other for a fresh, clean and economical look.
Designer Arren Williams overhauled his small former bathroom with a few affordable additions. Paint and tile in a similar shade of aqua offers modern appeal as well as savings. Big box stores like The Home Depot, Lowe's, Rona and Home Hardware sell many inexpensive pedestal sinks and skinny vertical storage cabinets like the ones Arren chose, too. A capiz shell curtain provides a bit of privacy, while still letting in lots of natural light. The budget-friendly cork floor also works well in this space, and is ideal for a humid bathroom.
