Designer Jacklynn Little shares where to splurge and where to save when designing a bathroom! – As seen in Canadian Home Trends Renovations 2017.

Selecting tile before anything else is key when designing a bathroom. It’s the most used product in the room and the most expensive, with material and labor, to install. It can be used as the inspiration for everything else in the room. For instance, if you select a neutral colored tile with a blue undertone, the vanity can be painted in a dark blue and the walls in a soft blue. You can also select accessories in complementary colors to bring it all together.

For a bold look, accentuate a neutral tile with a small band of colored tiles. The chosen color can then be used to help select the vanity, paint and accessories.
