Last year my 82 year-old uncle decided that he would have to do something about his master bathroom. Enough was enough. Even he, a serious household penny-pincher, would have to upgrade - the bathroom was outdated and falling apart!
He wanted to go totally white - but I convinced him to use a little bit of contrast, and we picked out some lovely greys for the walls, flooring and counter top. The room was gutted so that new wall and a new tub could be put in.
What a difference!
