One of the ways in which you can the interior design of a bathroom stand out is through color. Blue is one of the most popular options for this room but the list of suitable shades is a lot longer than that. The bathroom color schemes you can try are very numerous but today we’ll only focus on those involving bold colors.
First of all, it’s important to pick a color that you like, one that makes you feel good. Yellow, for example, is a color that brings cheer and brightens up the room. You can use it in the bathroom if you want to make it seem spacious and fun without using the same old white-based color palette.
It’s up to you to choose the yellow shade that you like best for this space. It can be a darker yellow for a warm and cozy ambiance or it can be a very bright, almost neon shade if, for example, you want the décor to truly pop. It would be nice to also add some contrasting elements such as a few dark accents.
Red is a difficult color in most cases. It has to be used carefully and only as an accent shade. It goes well with white and black and it adds a dramatic touch to the décor. For the bathroom, you can choose to use red for the ceiling and perhaps for a few other elements on the lower portion of the room, such as the tub in this case.
Red is also a color that goes well with natural wood tones. One colored accent wall is enough to make a bathroom stand out. If you want to emphasize the color even more, use mirrors for this purpose. Black and white can be colors that complete the chromatic palette.
Orange borrows the most important characteristics from yellow and red. It’s a fun and cheerful color which also has a strong visual impact on the décor. Various shades of orange can have different impacts on the bathroom in general but usually they all make it look energized and welcoming at the same time.
This strong shade of orange (almost red) is highlighted by the crisp white décor that surrounds it. The chocolate brown on the sink vanity is a welcomed contrast, grounding the color palette and establishing a balanced look throughout.
If you want to stick with the classic blue as an accent color for the bathroom, there are ways to make it look interesting even if it’s the most popular and perhaps overused color for this room. A very simple idea is to pick a shade of blue that stands out in some way. Perhaps a dark tone or one that’s close to purple can work.
