Look For Shower Curtains With Style
Let’s use new shower curtains to be a focal point in your new bathroom. It?s amazing how a simple, vinyl or fabric curtain can add style and aesthetic appeal to even the most plain room. Choosing the perfect shower curtain for your bath is a great starting place as the color and/or pattern you choose will suggest other ideas. There are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of styles to choose from, and pretty much every one will be relatively reasonably priced.. If bold colors and designs are your thing, great. If subtle, classic style appeals to you, go that direction.
When it comes to bathroom wall coverings, most people consider one of three basic choices – painting, wall paper, or tile.
Of the three choices, painting your walls is, by far, the easiest of your options. It is also the least expensive. Painting a bathroom can easily be accomplished on a Saturday morning before lunch. The most time consuming part of painting is masking off the areas that you don’t want to get paint on such as window frames, shower enclosures, tiles, and so on. Once you have used your masking or painting tape to separate the areas and placed your painting tarp on the floor, the actual painting itself is a piece of cake.
If you want to add texture to your wall, you can add sand to your paint before you start. You can’t just add sand that you pick up from your child’s playground, however. You will want to purchase silica sand, which is a special type of sand created specifically for mixing with paint. You can find it at most of the home maintenance centers. Follow the instructions on the bag and you will have no problems. The more sand you use, the more textured your wall will be. If you only want a mildly textured look, simply limit the amount of sand that you put into the paint.
But, adding sand to your paint is not the only way to add texture to your wall. Another method is to add a latex glaze to the paint. Doing this creates a texture and look that can often mimic the look of wallpaper. By using ragging techniques, you can create some spectacular faux finishes that would rival the look of some of the best wallpapers that you can buy.
