What Houzz contributors are saying:
Too many towelsTattered and faded bath towels that are past their prime could be taking up valuable space in your bathroom, so do a regular edit and keep just a couple of towels for each family member, plus one or two sets of guest towels. Relegate tatty old towels to the garage or shed, where they can be recycled and used for odd jobs, or reinvent them as pet bedding.
Playing it safeIf you had to guess the most popular bathroom colour, what would you choose? Blue? Aqua? Grey? Would it surprise you to learn that the colour chosen most frequently across the board, for walls, worktops and cabinets, was white? Grey was the second most popular shade, proving perhaps that we’re collectively cautious when decorating this particular space. When it comes to flooring, the majority of you also chose grey, with practical beige the second most popular choice.
Pile up matching towelsThis is one of the easiest upgrades on the list, both to achieve and to justify in terms of price. Towels will always wear out eventually, and older towels that have been retired from display in the bathroom can still get plenty of use as rags, beach towels, pet cloths and so on.Treat yourself to an attractive matching set to make your bathroom feel instantly more sophisticated and tied together. When in doubt, choose classic white for the most high-end appeal, and to avoid fading or bleach spots that will instantly ruin the effect.
