Every been trying to decide between the right wall paint color, tile color, countertop color combination in a kitchen or bath? Well here is a solution...eliminate one of the surface color choices by just using tile for the whole wall. To keep a kitchen or bath design simple but stylish, try tiling all the way to the ceiling. A tiled wall makes a luxe design statement...so why not give it a try?
