Choosing a colour scheme for your bathroom can be somewhat challenging, as bathroom renovations can be expensive and require a certain level of commitment.
However, there are many ways you can add a splash of colour to your bathroom decor without any large-scale refurbishment needed.
Despite what social media and interior design bloggers may tell you, bathrooms don’t have to be monochrome or all-white. So, if you want to brighten up your bathroom with a bit of colour – these tips are for you.
1. Create an accent wall
Adding an accent wall to a bathroom is a great way of incorporating a touch of colour or design, without going too over the top as the thought of painting your bathroom walls in one single colour can often seem and look a little overwhelming.
The key to a successful feature wall is choosing one that has a strong focal point, such as the wall that holds the washbasins and mirrors, or the one directly facing the door.
This is a fun and cost-effective way to experiment with colour through a simple lick of paint, or by incorporating a subtly designed wallpaper or tiles that include an array of different tones.
2. Invest in vibrant wall art
If you’re not quite ready to commit to completely redecorating your walls, why not add some interest to them with a vibrant wall art display?
Canvases are easily interchangeable when you want to switch up the look, so opt for a (water-resistant) piece that incorporates your desired colour and choose the perfect place to display it.
3. Add colourful accessories
If you’re working with a neutral-toned or classic white bathroom, accessories are your best friend when it comes to adding a pop of colour.
The great thing about introducing colourful bathroom accessories is that they typically serve a functional purpose too, so you’re getting true value for money. Luxury bath rugs are ideal for keeping drips at bay when you step out of the bath or shower, and they also offer a quick and effective way to alter your colour scheme.
Pair with coordinating towels and bathrobes that tie in with your accent shade to create a coherent look.
4. Change up your fixtures and fittings
There are no hard and fast rules that say your washbasins and vanity have to be chrome, grey or white. If you’re really keen on incorporating a unique colour scheme then branch out into colourful fixtures and fittings.
Paint the doors on your vanity, invest in a stand-out countertop washbasin in a beautiful pastel blue and work in your accessories to compliment.
Naturally, this may be one of the most expensive ways to add a touch of colour to your bathroom but if you want to make a huge impact, this one’s for you.
5. Incorporate some greenery
Simple yet effective, adding elements of greenery to your bathroom can introduce that much-needed pop of colour into your monochrome bathroom.
This is perfect for those who can’t commit to a colour scheme, but know that their bathroom interior is missing something. Whether you choose to go for real or synthetic, choose a variety of small houseplants, place them in lovely little plant pots and arrange them nicely, then you’re good to go.
