On-Trend Colour Schemes for your Bathroom

While choosing a palette for bedrooms and living areas can be easy, deciding on a bathroom colour scheme sometimes feels a little limited, especially if you’re working with a small space. However, there are lots of gorgeous on-trend colour schemes that are guaranteed to look great in your bathroom, no matter what size it is.

One of the key things to remember when decorating your bathroom is that you have a number of factors to consider: the bathroom suite, walls, furniture, and accessories. Once you’ve picked a colour for one of these, you’ll find it easier to put together the perfect on-trend colour scheme for you. Here, we share some of our favourite options.

Statement monochrome bathrooms

Monochrome is one of those colour palettes that never goes out of style, which makes it the perfect choice for bathroom décor. You can be confident that a timeless mix of black and white will look sleek and sophisticated, and you can create a number of themes around this colour combination, including art deco and contemporary designs.

Whether you’d like to paint your bathroom black and then add highlights to the room using white accessories and mirrors, or simply introduce touches of black into a predominately white space, there are a number of options to consider. You’ll also find that a monochrome bathroom will not restrict you when it comes to adding different tones, as anything from metallics to bright colours will work well against a black and white background.

Beautifully bold bathrooms

If you want your bathroom to stand out, don’t let tradition prevent you from using your imagination when it comes to which colours you use. Rich jewel tones, such as raspberry and teal, look amazing in bathrooms and will create a space that feels luxurious and indulgent. These colours can be used on a statement wall in your bathroom, or you could choose to purchase towels and other accessories in these tones which will pop against neutral walls and furniture.

Alternatively, opt for bright colours which will liven up any bathroom and add plenty of personality to the space. Want something especially outstanding? Brightly coloured wallpaper can be used to make a fabulous feature wall and will give your bathroom plenty of character. This works particularly well with a white bathroom suite which will simply shine in front of your jazzy décor.

Calming grey bathrooms

Is the thought of relaxing in a warm bath something that gets you through the day? If so, a calming grey palette is the perfect option for your bathroom, as these soothing tones are guaranteed to help your worries fade away. Grey has become increasingly on-trend in the world of interior design recently, and people have been using its different shades in bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms to create sophisticated spaces with plenty of style.

Soft greys are ideal for bathrooms that are made for relaxing in, whereas darker greys are perfect for those looking to make a statement. The beauty of grey palettes is that all of the tones complement each other, so you can mix and match to create a look that suits you. As with a monochrome bathroom, metallics and bold colours work great with greys, and we especially love the combination of soft grey with dusky colours and hints of copper or gold.

Classic white bathrooms

There’s no escaping the fact that a classic white bathroom has a clean and fresh look that sometimes can’t be beaten. White bathroom suites, white tiling, and white walls come together to create a bright room that thrives in natural light, and will never feel dingy, especially if mirrors and reflective accessories are added.

The beauty of a white bathroom is that you can easily update it depending on the season, a shift in trends, or if you simply fancy a change. White bathrooms are effectively a blank canvas, so by adding bath mats, towels, and other accessories in the colours and styles of your choice, you can quickly change the look of your bathroom without spending lots of time or money on it. You might even like to consider adding lush, green plants to your white bathroom to create a natural space that is made for relaxing in.

With so many amazing on-trend colour schemes to choose from, you can confidently decorate your bathroom in a way that suits your style and personality, using the colours you love.
