Tiles and paint? Of course, but it’s not obligatory if you’re seeking greater flexibility with budget or materials. In a large space, or one that links to a connecting dressing room or loo, why not consider wallpaper? There are many wallpapers designed to cope with the steamy atmosphere of a bathroom (albeit not actually in the shower!) and you can find over 130 designs at iwantwallpaper. co.uk, from super smart to seriously groovy.
