DIY Bathroom Makeover




A beautiful bathroom that has been made over by painting the wall and vanity in a dark blue color.

As self-pampering become more important than ever before,  home bathrooms are turning into soothing and restorative escapes.  Transforming a bathroom into a meditative escape does not have to take a lot of time or a special skill set. Built-in tubs are a feature in many older homes and may not always have a pleasing aesthetic. Our budget friendly make-over kept the main elements in the room and upgraded walls, cabinetry, and floors with only a coat of paint.

Three open paint cans with a half dipped brushes.  There is a light warm gray color, a white and a dark, almost black navy blue.

Paint Colors:

Walls: Silver Feather BWC-29  tinted in Interior Flat Finish

Accent wall: Starless Night PPU14-20 tinted in Interior Flat Finish

Trim: Polar Bear 75 tinted in Cabinetry & Trim Interior Semi-gloss

Vanity: Starless Night PPU14-20 tinted in Cabinetry & Trim Interior Semi-gloss

Floor: Polar Bear 75 & Starless Night PPU14-20 tinted in Porch & Patio Floor Paint

Paint can make an impact without replacing large room elements. Neutral colors and limited materials can transform this bathroom into a place of serenity.  Starless Night makes a dramatic and refined accent. Finishing touches such as plants infuse this bathroom with life and color.

A not very exciting looking bathroom, the color of the wall is beige, the sink is made with a natural wood color and the hardware and lighting fixtures are very generic and bland looking.

The walls have been painted in a trendy light warm gray and an accent color called Starless Night.   The hardware and lighting fixtures have been replaced with an elegant brass finish. The floor has a completely new look with a stylish stenciled design.

A couple of few fresh coats of BEHR PREMIUM® Cabinet & Trim Interior Semi-Gloss Enamel  paint can go a long way toward transforming your existing cabinets.  A round mirror soften the hard vanity edges while simple, streamlined sconces omit a warm glow and add depth.

Baths play and important part of restoring the mind and body. Natural elements such as a bamboo stool, natural wood brushes, scented candles, bath salts and oils add a therapeutic and calming quality to a home spa. Lightweight, stylish shelves create interesting silhouettes and help maintain an organized display of  spa/bath products.
