Default Half Bath Remodel Design Questions

My wife and I are going to redo our half bath. Currently there are cherry floors that go through most of the main floor. The vanity is a natural (medium) wood color and the walls are a dark red. I am open to changing out anything other than the flooring. We want to do something other than the typical brown or gray color and are looking for suggestions on the wall color and vanity/top colors. The vanity size is 24" and not looking to go too crazy on budget, like $500-800. I can post a pic of it later today.

Hi phatoe, and to the site.
Your bath doesn't look that bad to start with, so I don't know your needs / wants for it. It's also tough to get a good idea from a sideways bathroom photo...all the water wants to fall out. But I would take my hints from the floor color; maybe adding a tint of red stain to the vanity. I also tend to like neutral wall colors, especially in a small space. Are your fixtures in good shape?

Thanks for the reply, sorry about the sideways pic, it didn't take that way lol. We want to brighten it up for sure. We are going to change out all of the fixtures/hardware from chrome to brushed nickel.
A stain to the vanity would be a good idea. We really just want to make it not so dark, the pic brightens it up, its pretty dark. I wasn't sure what to do with the vanity. We had looked into a white vanity with a dark color top and then light walls as a possibility, but just aren't sure what to do w/ it.

If you have hard water, a dark fixture can show water spots easily, especially black (my sis-in-law's sink...I wouldn't think that would be your direction).
Time to pull out the paint chips!

yeah, I got that part. What color do you want to paint the walls? (hence, the paint chips)
