A black-painted baseboard could do the exact same job, but wallpaper down to the flooring in a bathroom could return to haunt you.
This tongue-and-groove paneling cuts a striking strip around the bathroom. Be sure not to thin down the effect with a white radiator. Ideally, get your own in black considering that paint isn’t advised for radiators.
4. Paint a Panel
If a half-wall panel simply isn’t enough, take your own approximately the ceiling. You could not be blessed with original wall surface woodwork, however fitting timber paneling is reasonably straightforward.

5. Embrace au Naturel
Tarnished black wood offers a completely various result compared to black-painted walls or paneling. In this seaside bathroom, a smudged wall ramps up the back-to-nature feeling of this area. A sandstone bathroom, travertine-style tiles and beachy devices improve the look.

9. Obtain Horizontal
The result is subtle, however the dark straight lines of this wall covering really stretch the limits of this compact bathroom.
This is an especially brilliant strategy considering that the shower display cuts the narrow back wall in 2. Many thanks to the strong horizontal lines, you barely discover. And also the back as well as right walls circulation into one apparently larger area.
Consider the direction of your ceramic tiles or wall surface panels carefully. Vertical ceramic tiles, as an example, have the prospective to extend your room up.
