How to improve this bathroom?

talakate22November 25, 2012
Please help me fix this bathroom. How can i put life and color to this small bathroom given that all the tiles are white? I am also not happy with the yellowish grout. Do I really need to change the tiles or can I still do something about this without changing the tiles (painting it maybe?) Please help me, this bathroom is quite frustrating!!

I think the fact that your bathroom is white is perfect. All you have to do is accessorize with towels and shower curtain of your choice. The options and colors are limitless. You can have a few different schemes so you can switch your towels and accessories with the seasons. You can paint the grout white. Ask your paint store for the right paint for this job.

HI -- The yellow grout has to go ! It will be a bit of work but worth it . All the grout can be ground out with a Dremel Tool , which isn't that exspensive or you could rent one . After removeing the old grout then it can be regrouted in a better color , like white or a light grey . This will give the room a new clean look . then you could add some color with accessories like colored towels etc. What color is the accent tile ? Get more of that color for the decor items. All white bathrooms are nice and fresh and clean looking and are the most appealing.

White bathrooms can be stunning. I think the problem with yours is the tile, not just the grout. If you look at the whiteness of the toilet next to the off-white of the tile and grout, that's what is throwing if off.

Have a bathroom company like Miracle Method come in and spray the tiles and grout to match the stark white of the toilet. Then you're more likely to have something that looks like this: [houzz=

Easy, paint the grout gray! Both Home Depot and Lowes have the proper paint for grout. That will clean up the look up immediately and is a cheap way to go. Accessorize using a gray rug and yellow towels. Bed Bath and Beyond has a marvelous new shower curtain in Yellow, Black and Gray that would be perfect.

Usually you can replace tiles pretty easily. I would update the stripe with some glass tiles and add a subtle shower curtain.
