What can I add to the wall to make it stand out?


I had the blue tile from the 50s replaced in my bathroom with wainscoting. There is one area (see picture) that I would like to have something put in there to make it stand out. The contractor suggested continuing the white “rail” up the wall or having the painter continue the pink as the rest of the wall. any suggestions.

    Wood planks (kits can be found at Home Depot and Lowes), wainscotting, or for an even more inexpensive option, board & batting wallpaper!

    If you replace it there will not be a smooth transition to the ceiling if you’re going for that.

    It would make the room come together to continue up with the mounding and color.

    Have fun with it!

    Its your place so do what you want!

    Consider mirrored tiles

    I’m having a hard time figuring out this wall without seeing how it relates to the rest of the room. Could you take a pic to show what you’re working with?

    They make some really pretty accent tiles that might be nice there. Only thing is you would probably want to carry it all the way around the tub surround.

    Otherwise I would just go with the pink and make your window wall your accent wall. Easily done with a nice patterned valance

    Thanks. It had blue tile in that area before and I liked how it stood out.
