    Any idea what colour I should paint this wall?

    It's in the games/play room, where the shelves are white & the fabric boxes in them are red, blue, green & yellow (bright/primary type colours).

    It's been cut into & patched so DH can hang a TV on the wall, so I want to paint it soon but can't decide on colour. I like the feature wall as a concept but I'm not keen on what it is now, especially the textured paint.

    I actually like the grey, just not as texture paint it dates very easy. You could just go white and accessorise?

    Does anyone else have small bathrooms?

    Our ensuite is SO SMALL. And has no function. I really need help redoing it. I'm thinking in main bathroom getting rid of bath all together. What do you think?

    Default Are you building, renovating or decorating?

    I'm loving navy blue or black feature walls these days. Black would make the TV not stand out so much but the white shelves and bright storage boxes would pop.

    You could even do a blackboard paint that the kids can draw on. Then when they're older, you just dust it off and it's an ordinary black wall again.

    In your area I would keep the bath as you want the house to appeal to families and they need baths (in general - I'm sure there are some exceptions)

    What are the dimensions of your ensuite?

    For those who don't have down lights, what lighting do you have? We've been quoted $80 per downlight (including the light and installation) and apparently you should have one every 60cm. In our kitchen, dining, family room and hallway that's about 130 lights!! So obviously we're looking for a modern but cheaper alternative.

    I'll ask DH when he gets home. He's a sparky I know before we left our old house, we replaced the two long fluoros with a large down light type thing. Every 60cm sounds excessive!
    @A-Squared, I actually want to do a blackboard wall outside but wouldn't do it in that room since it's carpeted. Dustless chalk is expensive
