Close-Up: A Cheap Way to Add Color to Your Bathroom

Some of our house tour hosts have found a great way to simultaneously spice up their bathrooms, salvage resources, and save money....

Bill Harvey, of Green Meetup fame, scoured a large salvage yard to fill his home. The photo above reveals his children's bathroom, with 'his and her's' sinks. According to Bill, the total cost for furnishing 4 bathrooms in his incredible home was $600!

Raelene and Jose, of AT's House Tour Book fame, used vintage bathroom sources as well. In their meticulously curated modern home they not only brought in mid-century era pieces, but fixtures and floor tiles to match! Raelene wanted to streamline her bathrooms, and because she is persistent and patient, she was able to find matching sinks, toilets, and bathtubs!! Once the sets were purchased, it was just a matter of complementing them with tile, new mirrors and other modern accessories.
