Home decorators who want to give their bathroom vanities an update need to consider the products they use to bring about the new look.

For instance, the paint used in a bathroom, whether for walls or vanities, must stand up to the moist atmosphere that's inherent to the space. A high-adhesion primer, followed by semi-gloss latex paint and finished with a non-yellowing, water-based polyurethane are the paint products homeowners should use to make an old vanity look new again, recommends.

Once the paint dries, an easy change in the vanity hardware - or on other bathroom cabinetry - can alter the look from contemporary to traditional, or vice versa. Knobs and drawer pulls come in a variety of finishes, such as metal, ceramic, glass or wood that can be stained or painted to match the cabinets.

Buying custom blinds online will give homeowners a wide selection of window treatments that are attractive in bathrooms and will wear well in moisture. There are many options in colors, finishes and materials that will fit any bathroom décor.

To bring a warm atmosphere to the bathroom, homeowners should consider their selections for a window treatment. Faux wood blinds achieve this in a variety of finishes that will be durable for use in a bathroom.
