Bathroom Before

We moved into our house seven years ago.  I cannot believe it was that long ago.  We purchased the house from a house flipper, and most of the house was essentially brand new. We have enclosed the basement into a play/man room. We wound up having to take on less glamorous projects: entirely new heating and cooling system down to new duct work due to mold and a new roof.  So, the bathroom was moved down the list.

The home was built in 1962, so the master bath is tiny.

 (Now I know you are LOVING the fish door ;)

As you can see, tiny.  We plan to paint, replace the fish door, replace the mirror and lighting, add a fan, and hopefully add a window treatment of some kind.  I am not interested in a major gut of the bath at this time.  The tiles on the wall are white with black flecks in them.  

So, big question, what color?  

The top photo is in artificial light, and the bottom photo is natural light.  So, what do y'all think? 1, 2, 3, or 4?

Any other suggestions?

PS, Check out my new Etsy shop!


  1. First of all I love your bathroom - ( except for the fish door lol ) but I love those original tiles!!! Personally I think I'd go with a grey - maybe a charcoal- to tie in with the black and make the white really pop - but I'm a grey sort of gal lmho - Good luck! It won't take much to make it really pretty!

    1. Great idea! Thanks for stopping by. :)

  2. The original tile is kinda fun, maybe replace the towel bar and TP holder to update a little. Dark gray paint (or maybe even black!) would look great. Best wishes with your makeover!
