Q: I am in the process of purchasing a 1950's ranch home and I am definitely wanting to do something different with the bathroom. I do not love the pink and green tile walls, but for right now they have to stay. There is wallpaper above the tile, but I plan on taking it down and painting the walls white or gray. My main concern is the floor — while I don't hate it too much on its own, I DO with the pink and green tile walls! I'm just not sure what would look good. My only ideas are plain white tile or black and white checkered tile...but I'm not overly excited about either of those.
Also, does anyone have an idea what could be done about the silver handle on the wall by the toilet? There's another in the shower and I don't like them (nor need them at my age)...but I just don't know what could be done about the holes in the tile.
