Remodelling a bathroom can be a bit challenging even to a lover of DIY projects. Most of us are tight on a budget, so undergoing a bathroom redoing could be an expensive proposition.
Sometimes we are wondering, “Hmm, everything is functioning well, so is there really the need to overhaul the design of existing bathroom?” We justify ourselves, questioning “But how to decorate the room? Deciding on the perfect bathroom colour scheme can make a huge impact on perceiving the space. The good news is, you are going to learn to love your bathroom again, or maybe for the first time?
I have gathered a handful of affordable and stylish bathroom colour schemes for any size, style and layout of the room. There is one definite statement that you cannot go wrong in pairing a stunning tone with a white base. However, there are plenty of examples of other, inspiring options of colour combinations. I hope I have motivated you enough that, maybe with just a can of paint and a few decor items, you can transform existing design of your bathroom into a space you love. Or, at least, do not hate.
Soaking in Vanilla and Off-white
From a historical view, bathrooms were not traditionally decorated in vibrant, bold colours. People were trying not to draw lots of attention to the room by diminishing the decor and tones of the space. These days deciding on crisp white is a very popular idea. Sticking to a neutral palette- vanilla, off-whites or beiges keeps the room fresh and brings lots of light to the area.
Blossom in Red
You can add a lot of cheerful enthusiasm to your bathroom by bringing red accessories, like cherry red towels, red bath mats or red laundry basket. Deciding on the glossy red tiled backsplash is another adventurous example of adding glamour and energetic vibe to a clean and germ-free space. A combination of white and red elements let us conceptualise beautiful interior with a dash of luxurious breeze.
I am forever in love in pink hues. The hottest and trendiest colour of the season is amaranth pink. You cannot call it pink, and it is not red. It is a stunning cross between the two, for those who would never decorate their interiors in pink. The stylish couple, white and amaranth, you can go wrong with window treatments, or cabinet doors painted amaranth hue. Another great item complementing the colour scheme of your bathroom might be a patterned shower curtain. It is available in thousands of colours and patterns. Choosing an amaranth, bold and graphic design could take your space to another level.
Being an owner of a small bathroom makes you think twice of choosing a colour scheme to enlarge the area optically. Green mint is always an endless option, creating a fresh environment, with a lovely and charming atmosphere. Small-scale wallpaper with a bright pattern will give a warm boost to the bathroom, breaking up the unity of the walls. A decorative mirror in a silver frame, with complimentary nickel sconces adorning both sides will provide a dramatic appeal.
A combination of white and pale blue is always a winning pair of colours. It is traditional, tranquil and reminiscing the dark waters of exotic faraway places. Choosing it for the bathroom colour scheme will not only ensure lots of serene and peaceful moments but also will give so much needed relaxation times. If there is enough sunlight coming in, you cannot help but fall in love instantly in that serene environment.
Follow Mother Nature and go for the ocean-like design of your bathroom. There is something particularly magician about pairing coastal blue tones with crisp, austere whites. It is evident that you will add a sparkle and shine to space by highlighting this gorgeous spa-like room. If you a lover of soaking in a bathtub, give some thoughts on adding mosaic tiles in blue tone to enhance the fresh feeling of the space.
I love to bits rich purple as it reflects many subtle tonal variations in different lighting. You will be mesmerised, with appropriate lights switched on, to see blues, greys, greens and even blacks. You can swap deep purple with many dark colours, but that chosen pair will assure you with a striking bathroom colour scheme. Install white tile flooring with additional sconces and candelabras to see the contrasting between the combination of hues.
Black loves White
The classic colour combination which suits any style of the bathroom. From modern to traditional, even contemporary, you can appreciate the welcoming, clean atmosphere of black tiles and white decor items. To add a dash of glamour, think of crystal chandeliers, providing lots of lights and sparkle to your space.
Grey vs. White
Ultra sexy and the modern combo of colours, creating a romantic spa-like character of the room. You can highlight the minimalism of the design by allowing your white fixtures (sink, shower, bathtub and toilet) contrast with the grey walls. White components will beautifully stand out against the overpowering, contemporary bathroom.
No, I am not talking about your favourite chocolate that you love eating in the evenings. The rich, vibrant hue of a chocolate brown bathroom will significantly boost even the tiny room. The luxurious shade of chocolate brown can make the smallest space feel larger and more spacious. You can break up the monotony of one colour with beige tiles and beautifully ornamented mirror. Bath decor items such as bath mats or rugs come in a variety of textures and patterns, therefore opting for a geometrically patterned rug in light tone will enhance the outstanding style.
The traditional colour of Hollywood houses, the epitome of luxury here comes in a new shade. You can add this gorgeous element generously as accents to beige or vanilla design of the bathroom. Metallic accessories will highlight the sparkling finish of the decor, without the tacky feeling.
It could be a challenge, deciding how to incorporate right colour into your bathroom. Especially when you are on a tight budget, facing small space ideas. Be careful when adding rich tones, as you do not want to overdo it. By layering the accent tones, adding a pop of colour in your backsplash or just small injections you will never fail.
