So you are finally going ahead with the challenging task of redesigning and renovating the bathroom at home, and after many hours of discussions, browsing countless shops online and offline and comparing prices up and down the country, just when you think you are finally finished with the planning and can move on to stage two; the buying & fitting, somebody goes ahead and ruins your day by throwing in the spanner of a question, being ‘so, are you choosing to tile the bathroom walls or will you be painting them?’ All of a sudden you are back at the drawing board, back online and re-evaluating how much you are spending and what exactly you are spending it on. Don’t forget also, that if you decide that you are going to be painting the bathroom walls, then you need to get yourself some mold resistant paint, which is specially formulated for using in bathrooms. If you are finding it tricky to find the right colour for your bathroom that is also mold resistant, then you can actually also use paint with a semi-gloss or high-gloss finish, as these two types of paint will also offer some resistance to the damp conditions, and although they are not in-fact mold resistant, they are easily wiped down and cleaned. So if you spend a little time now and again just caring for your bathroom and maintaining a clean room, then you will be able to avoid any issues with mold for many years to come.
Tiling the bathroom will probably be a little more daunting and also expensive, however if it is done right it can make a huge difference to the overall finish of the bathroom; turning a normal home bathroom into an exquisite, classy bathroom that gives off a sense of luxury & success.

You can even buy and tile your bathroom with 3-D tiles which can provide quite an interesting look and feel to the room. Ultimately, if you choose to tile the bathroom instead of paint it, then you are opening up yourself to a great many more options and will be allowing yourself to be a lot more creative with what you do in relation to the tiling. So if you are a creative person at heart, then you should probably go with tiling and enjoy the challenge.
