5 Ideas for Updating Your Bathroom Walls in Stuart, FL
If you are about to undergo a bathroom renovation, you can’t forget about the walls. Bathroom walls are a bit tricker than other parts of your home because they need to be moisture resistant. While this eliminates some materials, that does not mean you don’t have plenty of options when it comes time to upgrade your bathroom walls.
Here are a few ideas to consider that will turn your bathroom into the envy of the neighborhood!
Vinyl-covered wallpaper is water-resistant, highly durable, and comes in an endless variety of patterns and colors to work with any style of bathroom. It is important to remember, however, that it only tolerates indirect moisture (i.e., steam), so you’ll need a different material for the lower wall surfaces.
Regular flat or matte surface interior paint does not work well in bathrooms. That’s because it tends to trap moisture. Paint with a semi-gloss sheen, however, is perfect because the water will bead on the surface rather than penetrate. It’s worth noting as well that paint is a less expensive option than most other materials.
Elegant and extremely versatile, tile is still one of the most popular choices when it comes to bathrooms. Because tile is 100% water-resistant it’s one of the few materials that can work either inside or outside the shower. Perhaps this is why subway tile, in particular, is a very attractive and popular bathroom wall design.
This material is ideal for bathrooms because of its resistance to water and unique aesthetics. What makes it different is it can only cover the lower part of your bathroom walls. This provides excellent protection while providing you with an excellent opportunity to break up the look of your walls with different materials and colors. Beadboard is particularly suited to bathrooms with a rustic or homey appearance.
Contemporary tileboard is manufactured to perfectly resemble ceramic tile. When sealed with bathroom-grade silicone caulk, this material is extremely resistant to moisture and should maintain its attractiveness for years to come, making it a perfect low-cost alternative to traditional tile.
