Neutral shades are a popular choice for bathrooms, but this should not mean that the addition of colors is totally prohibited. In such a small space, the color may seem risky, but it’s exactly the opposite. On a small scale it is easy to go bold without exaggeration.
Here are 10 simple ways to add color to your bathroom design, while still leaving the space clean and assembled.
1. Paint first
In practice, painting is the easiest and cheapest way to add a great touch of color to a space. We recommend that you first select the shade you want and then build the rest of the room’s colour scheme.
2. Opt for an accent wall
If the idea of adding color to the entire room seems a little too much for your taste, try to make just one. The key here is choosing the right wall to be your flagship: you want one with a strong focal point or the one that is directly in front of the door.
3. Play with colorful tiles
As for the card, the phrase “less is more” is true. Gone are the days of covering the entire room in saturated tiles. Pretty modern bathrooms use colored tiles to draw attention to a focal point. Use it in a rainforest shower similar to a spa or as an eye-catching backsplash behind your vanity.
4. Try the bathtub
A modern option that has an impact is the addition of a shaded bathtub. You can choose from a variety of materials such as copper or painted porcelain, but whatever your choice, be sure to select the shade you like for a long time to come.
5. Make your Vanity Pop
When it comes to adding color to a vanity, you have two options: add color to the top or base. Consider choosing one and keeping the other surface neutral for balance. Coloured bases can often be a do-it-yourself design and work best on large vanity units with room for cupboards or shelves. For ceilings, the best solution is to select a coloured marble or granite.
6. Use coloured towels
Because towels are a great choice when it comes to adding color: they are available in all imaginable shades, are relatively cheap and super easy to replace if you change your mind.
7. Focus on floor coverings
A bath mat or mat can infuse color into space and also has a functional purpose in bathrooms that include a bathtub or shower. Choose a color that moves with the rest of your accents for a truly cohesive look.
8. Don’t forget the decor
A common misconception is that since bathrooms are often smaller than other spaces in the house, there is no need to worry about decorative elements. The opposite is true. Well-positioned decorative elements are the secret to making this space really come together. Consider using candles, baskets or decorative shelves to really drive your design home.
9. Hang a vibrant art on the walls
A well-positioned piece of wall art is an easy way to add a touch of color. Keep in mind that when you find the art of wall art for the bathroom, it is important to take moisture into account. Make sure you choose a water-resistant material or add a protective frame.
10. Get into a little green
If everything else fails to stimulate your interest, incorporate some color from nature. Whether they’re real or synthetic, colorful or simply green, few plants can do much to add that touch of color to your bathroom.
