The bathroom is the only room in our house that didn't get a fresh coat of paint before we moved in. The previous owners had chosen terrible colors for the whole house and the bathroom was no exception. For the bathroom they tried to match the tile colors, with pink walls and a burgundy ceiling. The dark ceiling made it feel really small, and it's already a pretty small room. While my husband was installing a ceiling fan the dark paint began peeling away. Of course it didn't all come off and we knew it was beyond time to give this room a nice coat of paint. Why would you paint the vent? They painted the inside of the medicine cabinet burgundy too. I just don't understand.
In the store the paint looked like a light gray, but on the walls it looks more blue. At first we weren't sure about it, but changing the shower curtain made all the difference. Having a light colored shower curtain also makes the room lighter and bigger. For the first week after hanging the new curtain there were many requests for 'the yellow submarine song!' The new sink is a really great too. I love it! The previous sink was alright, but didn't have any storage under it, which this tiny bathroom desperately needed.
