What Houzz contributors are saying:
Simplicity reduces “designer anxiety” Creating an attractive home is high on many lists and is an engrossing and important part of life. But when it begins to verge on an obsession, stress and discontent take over — is this colour wrong; what if I move this; what if I add that? Learn to prune back decor to its essentials and then sit back and enjoy it — or better still, accept its idiosyncrasies.
Porcelain/vitrified tiles Porcelain tiles are the easiest to clean. Sweep every couple of days with a soft broom or brush, and vacuum once a week with the brush attachment to remove most dust. Once a month, wash with a solution of water and dishwashing detergent. Use a soft mop and leave to air dry. Mop with warm water and a little vinegar for a great finish.Vitrified tiles are ceramic tiles. The clay is mixed quantities of silica, quartz and feldspar, and when they are fired these elements melt and form a glass-like texture throughout the tile. They are non-porous and stronger than regular ceramic tiles. They have a glossy finish and you can apply the same cleaning method as with porcelain tiles. What to avoid: Clean up spills as they happen. Don’t leave them to dry on the surface of the tile as they may cause a stain.
If mid-grey isn’t your thing, go for darker charcoals for a tinge of glamour and sophistication. The industrial-style light (with a yellow rather than white globe) and timber bench top add welcome warmth and moodiness to this space.Browse more grey bathrooms
