You could allow tile to make a statement and cover all four walls, or use it to create pseudo-wainscoting and paint the top half of the wall the color of your choice. Here are five general bathroom tile ideas to apply to your space. Wainscoting is a decorative wall covering that extends partway up the wall. It's typically done in wood and in spaces such as the dining room. However, it can also work in the bathroom as a way to add character. If you want to incorporate tile but are on a budget, try tiling from the floor up and then paint the remaining wall with a gloss or semi-gloss paint for easy clean-up.

They are sturdy and you won't run the risk of smudges or feel the need to dust them every three days as you might with glass or mirrored trays.

If that look is your goal, the key to success is remembering that not all whites are created equal. Be sure to mix in a variety of patterns, textures, materials and shades to help keep the space visually interesting. Other times, white linens are used to provide contrast from the rest of the room.

We love these planters either clustered in various sizes on a side table or all in a row and on display on a window sill.

Since these rooms are so utilitarian, each piece does double duty in terms of providing a function and adding to the overall aesthetic. The fixture options you choose are no exception.

Each of these comes with its own unique price point, life span, level of upkeep and style.
