Even if you can't afford to do a tile wall, a small band of tile above the countertop pulls together the hues of the vanity and countertops. If you have a vanity with drawers, you can decorate the countertop with items such as vintage-looking bottles in the free space that makeup and other bathroom essentials would otherwise occupy.
This kitchen countertop serves double duty as a prep surface and storage compartment that houses crayons, rubber bands and clips. This is a great place for kids to do homework while Mom and Dad cook meals.
This simple guest bathroom features a walk-in shower and dark brown vanity. To give the space a custom look, bands of green glass tiles are used in the shower and a creamy onyx countertop sits on the vanity.
