Open Thread 11 Boston Welcome to the AT:Boston Open Thread! March is all about Kitchens & Bathrooms — two (very functional) rooms important to a home. Bostonians and New Englanders, join us in the comments for discussion. Tags Open Threads Related Links Share Comments (10) I have a problem with a small bathroom in my house. It is all white and I cannot figure out a way to introduce color (other than accessories). The problem is that the bathroom is floor to ceiling tiles, therefore I have no walls to paint and am unable to hang any artwork, shelves, etc. Anyone have any suggestions on how to enliven dull, white tiles? posted by ShamWOW! on March 2nd 2009 at 11:46am view ShamWOW!'s profile ShamWow, can you use those removable hooks to hang artwork? Other than that, you've got to get bold shower curtain, rugs, towels, and counter-top accessories. A colored basket on top of the toilet to hold TP, perhaps? posted by anne-lise on March 2nd 2009 at 12:34pm view anne-lise's profile But is there something I can do to the tiles? Decals? Tile Paint? posted by ShamWOW! on March 2nd 2009 at 2:58pm view ShamWOW!'s profile You can drill into tile to hang a nail and a piece of art.. or how about vinyl wall stickers or removable wall decals that aren't too busy looking? posted by immaterialgal on March 2nd 2009 at 2:59pm view immaterialgal's profile Hmm. The drilling has peaked my interest. It won't crack and damage the tile? posted by ShamWOW! on March 2nd 2009 at 4:26pm view ShamWOW!'s profile You have to use the correct bit! posted by K T G on March 2nd 2009 at 4:37pm view K T G's profile What bit do you recommend? I think I'll find some left over tile in my basement and practice, practice, practice before I attempt the real deal. posted by ShamWOW! on March 3rd 2009 at 8:10am view ShamWOW!'s profile I recommend researching it on this internet thing, since all I know is different surfaces require different bits for success: http://www.doityourself.com/stry/drillingintotilewall

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Well, in lieu of an actual "kitchen", we have a creative and I shall say, resolute determination to carve out a spot to cook, no matter what the limitations of the overall space. Brava!

There's an idea. Bead board or something low along the whole living dining zone.

A little cramped, but great wall color, and I do like the idea of comfy upholstered chairs in the kitchen/dining area.

Good use of small space but lighter walls might make it look more spacious.
