Fun Bathroom Fixtures by Artceram – Cow

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

These fun bathroom fixtures are the newest additions to the cool sanitaryware collection by Artceram – Cow. Still in the theme of black and white, one fun decorated option is splattered with cow spots. Another option is quite modern, all black on the outside and white on the inside. The last may be an acquired taste and definitely not appropriate for vegetarians – unless they possess a twisted humor, that is. It is divided by dotted lines into areas that make reference to different cuts of meat. As a group, the decorated versions of Cow bathroom fixtures are clever, bold, fun and maybe strange to some. Either way, they have caught our attention. Learn more at Artceram.

Find information on color, paint and wall coverings to help you make decisions on your bathroom wall finishes.

Using color in the form of paint or wall coverings is a brilliant way to add decoration to a bathroom. It definitely creates the mood and theme as well as wall paper adding texture and pattern.

Often bathrooms can look cold and sterile, all the fixtures are white and stark, the fixings cold and shiny, simply by adding a yellow and white striped wall paper the space is brighter and has atmosphere.

A border can be fun to add, especially if it is a children’s bathroom or a holiday home. You can theme with lots of colored shapes on a border, a border of bubbles, or a nautical themed border for a beach house.

There are so many wonderful designs to choose from.

Wallpaper in this bathroom adds drama and creative flair.

When renovating wallpaper is often a wise selection for the walls. Over time the substrate (wall surface) can become imperfect after years of redecoration and it can be quite expensive to repair and fill or replace to paint over. Wallpaper won’t hide all the imperfections but it will make them less noticable than a paint finish would.
