Our house, a 4-bedroom, 2-bath rancher, was built in 1986. When we moved here in 1997; we started updating the house and finishes. It's an ongoing process.
The two bathrooms are typical of the 1980s --- rather small, but adequate. We have never replaced the original fixtures, with the exception of the bathtub in the master bath. When we moved in we replaced that bathtub with a walk-in shower.
Time for some new bathroom updates ---
It all started with the need for new water-saving and higher-profile toilets. If we were going to pull the toilets out, we should replace the old linoleum flooring. Right??? And, it would sure be nice to have integrated sinks and new counter tops plus a new paint job. You know how it goes!

still in place. New wall paint.
The house is fairly small, so I like all of the rooms with neutral backgrounds to help with the visual flow. But, I don't want boring with all white or all beige. I like to mix it up a little to give it some texture.
The new wall and trim paint is Sherwin-Williams Pure White.

Not a big difference in the look of the bathrooms --- this redo was all about function and ease of future cleaning.
