Everyone’s familiar with the standard white bathroom design. Typical bathroom fixtures include a white porcelain toilet, sink, and tub. But many other options exist to add color and style to this ultra-functional space. From paint on the walls to tile colors, from faucets to tiles, and many more, there are so many colorful alternatives to add personality and pizzazz to a bathroom. Read on to discover 20 fantastic ideas for bathroom colors.
Mimic a traditional “chair rail” design with horizontal wall paint in a color you love. Blues and aqua tones are popular bathroom choices, as they connote relaxation and a water focus. The staggered floating countertops in this space lend a casual yet modern air to this horizontally focused space.
Glass mosaic tiles are a perfect way to incorporate color into a bathroom color scheme. Whether your color palette consists of neutral hues (e.g., white, grey, and black) or something more colorful, a chunky stripe of mosaic tile adds visual interest and analogous color harmony into the bathroom. This stripe, being framed out by white tile, is particularly effective in this way.
Let’s just cut to the chase, shall we? For the bathroom whose inherent components are relatively un-colored, throw some colorful, moisture-friendly wallpaper onto the bathroom’s primary wall. The mass of pattern, print, and/or color makes the bathroom instantly fun and interesting. (Any time a bathroom can be decorated more like other rooms in the house is a winning situation.)
A bathroom color scheme needn’t be full of garish reds and purples, of course. White paired with beautiful wood finishes, set off serenely by a warm grey paint, with a pop or two of brass fixtures creates a lovely, calm, yet still perfectly colorful, bathroom setting.
