Remove tile & replace w/ beadboard??? help
Help! We are doing a mini-makeover on our 50's bathroom.
Just got estimate to chip off old 50s tile off the walls and put up new sheetrock, and then beadboard (white painted) on top. Now this will push off our vanity installation, as this must be done first. We have to make a decision asap! We are debating tile vs. beadboard. Love the beadboard, but wondering if it will be a nuisance to paint every 5 years, or mildew problems, etc. ?? steamy showers every day...
But we don't think we can live w/ gray tile/red tile much longer. what should we do??????
Here are the colors:
Ice Gray 50's tile walls , with maroon subway trim on corners, bottoms and top.
Wall tile goes 1/2 up on wall.
Blue bathtub, and blue toilet. staying.
We got a beadboard front white cabinet, crema marfil marble top, white sink, and white medicne tri view mirror medicine cabinet, w/ coordinating lighting fixture.
For now we have floral wallpaper, like laura ashley, large blooms. Colors in that are baby blue (icy) background, red/geen cabbage roses w/ pinks. I think it looks cottagey and ties in all the colors in this bathroom. Not sure how long we'll keep, it has mold on it a little bit in tiny spots at top.
