Bathroom: Things not to do and why
Notice that the white subway tile stops about 12 inches from the ceiling. Spray from the shower head will wet and damage the painted wall. Why give yourself another service to maintain. If you tile all the way up to the ceiling you can wash the tile down in one easy step. The way it is now you have to be careful not to get the wall wet when you wash the tile.
Tile the shower all the way up to the ceiling so that wallboard does not get damages. Use subway tile and not beadboard behind sink area because beadboard does not hold up to the humidity of bathrooms in the way subway tile does. Subway tile the angled walls on either side of the shower to prevent water damage. Move the lights down on either side of the medicine cabinet.
Run the subway tile up to meet the base of the medicine cabinet all the way around the room. This will mean less wall to paint and the area behind the sink won't get water damaged.
The white subway tile is classic. The green tile is not and soon will be something you will regret 5 or more years down the road. Don't do it stay classic with all white subway tile.
