Bathroom and Whole House Help!!
 
5 Attachment(s)

We are redoing the bathroom in our rental condo, to put it up for sale. I'd like to make it look a little more update without replacing too much. The light bar will definitely be going, as will the brass toliet paper holder, and towel bar.

You can see the bathroom counter is kinda tanish. The kitchen has blue countertops, and the carpet is blue so I need colors that I can use throughout the whole down stairs.

I need to repaint all the cupboards in the bathrooms and kitchen so I need advice that will fit for both rooms. The kitchen is very small and closed in so I can't do anything too dramatic but right now they are white and I would like to change it. Also feel free give advice as far as flooring to be used in both the kitchen and bathroom.

The walls in the bathroom look rough we found out when we started taking down the wall paper that they didn't paint between that in the drywall, but I read we can just fix the touble areas with mud and then prime before painting.

Any advice is welcome and appreciated.

Small bathrooms are a challenge. To upgrade the look, remove the mirror and install one or two picture framed mirrors. You might even consider adding sconce lighting on either side.

The "look" now is dark espresso cabinets and light countertops. However, that can close-in the small bathroom. I would paint the cabinet bright gloss white and remove the pulls entirely or do as Neal said using small pulls to minimize the visual impact. The dark hardware is dated and ugly.

Please see this site for ideas on color options. http://ferchustar.blogspot.com/2013/09/attic-bathroom-attic-bathroom.html

For minimal expense, you can tile the floor. Be careful to leave something dark in the room to anchor the visual. All tan or all white is too monochromatic. .... Oh, the walls? Rip off the wall paper and skim coat the walls (light skip trowel). Prime and paint to coordinate.
