How tall are the ceilings in this room?
Cheryl McSorley_RebschJuly 25, 2012
I have a very small upstairs bathroom with standard 8' walls. Can I do this wainscot and two tone look in such a small space to make the ceiling seam taller? I'm afraid the dark brown will make the room feel small. I know white is not the answer but really need to make this space feel better.

I think you should concentrate on making your small bathroom charming instead of worrying about making it look larger. And certainly the wainscoting used here will give you some charm. I would do the wainscoting to 36" above floor and paint just one color above it. However, if you really want it to look larger, mirror above the wainscoting to the ceiling on one or more of the walls.

Okay, I did not think to use a bigger mirror or two mirrors in the tiny space. I have a large mirror that I will try out in the space. Thank you

I think you're talking about a bit framed mirror. That might work, but what I meant was the kind that the mirror company comes and installs that goes from wall to wall and from wainscoting to the ceiling.

I agree with above, use one color on the walls and ceilings...there will be no seam and the room will feel larger. Maybe a large curvy mirror ( beveled and frameless, Audrey mirror @ ballards) may work to give the room a little pop? Your bathroom is adorable...Have fun...
