Ugly tile bathrooms & fixtures - help!
 
I just moved from Vegas to a cool colonial house in South Carolina. Problem is, it was built in the 70's and the three bathrooms all have those colored tubs,toilets, and sinks. One is putrid yellow, one is hospital green, and one is ugly tan. We can't afford to replace those items now, so I need help in working around the colors to make the bathrooms inviting...at least livable! The tan one isn't going to be hard - my daughter is going to use black accents. The green one and the :censored: yellow one (mine) are going to be the most difficult. Ideas, PLEASE!!! And many many thanks!! I am truly 'in a rut' about this.

Black would definitely compliment with tan. The color hospital green will likely work out if you match it with the same hue in a different shade like jungle green and tropical rain forest while yellow blends nicely with dark brown and orange and lastly don't forget the dim lighting! :thumbup:

good luck!

Thank you.!! I like your green ideas.. We've been wracking our brains trying to figure out how to downplay the green... might as well just work with it, huh? Thank you so much...
