5. Revamp the wall tiles
Iridescent mosaic tiles are often used to decorate the new bathroom. For the older bathroom that needs the quick fix, you can choose to use the cheaper version like bathroom wall tile stickers. Bathroom wall tile stickers or bathroom wall decals now come with many beautiful patterns that you will find at least one pattern that you love. However, it's a good idea to repair your grout first too.
