Again with the bathroom paint

June 11, 2008

My bathroom is built under the stairs that go up to the owners’ main part of the house so it has some crazy angles and slants – oh my!

I can’t decide if I should make the slant white like the ceiling or gray like the walls.  The étagère that goes over the toilet is being painted glossy white, so I tend to lean toward painting it gray.  That will also show the angle over the shower better, contrasting with the ceiling white and the lighter tiles behind.

OR… should I err on the side of making it white and lighter?  Light is an issue (no windows, crappy fixture) and it’s SMALL.

Should the gray paint end before the wall angles up?  Or should it go up to the ceiling?  A large portion of the gray on the lower part will be taken up by the glossy white étagère…

Here is a pic showing the spanking new primer 😉



  1. hhmm, my thought is all one color, wall and angle (just thinkin that if it is broken up, you’ll notice it even more). Its really getting close!

  2. I watched this show on HGTV where a couple had an angled ceiling that they painted white. The designer said most people will use white on ceilings to make a room look brighter and give the appearance of height, but in this case it made the ceiling appear LOWER since there was so MUCH white on such a big angle. They actually ended up painting silver stripes on the ceiling…haha…just something to think about. 🙂

  3. Silver stripes??!!?? Think that would be a shiny touch to your home!

  4. Go ahead and paint your vanity and medicine cabinet (just one or two shade different that the sample you choose). It will change the look of the entire room. We did it to ours right before we moved. I can’t believe I lived with it for so long. At least the new owners loved it when they first saw it. SOLD in less than 2 weeks!!
