The Best Colours To Paint Your Bathroom
Introducing paint can bring a whole new lease of life to the bathroom. However, unless you’re feeling confident, the prospect of picking up a paintbrush can prove somewhat daunting. Whether you’re picking a colour for your brand-new renovation or simply planning to refresh your existing room, choosing a colour you’ll enjoy for many years is extremely important.
Factors such as aspect, bathroom style and the look of the rest of your home will influence your choice of colour. North-facing rooms get less light, and the light they do receive tends to accentuate cool colours. You can counteract this by opting for a bright tint with warm undertones. In east and west-facing rooms, light varies throughout the day. Therefore, you’ll need to consider whether you want to accentuate the warm morning light of an east-facing room or emphasise the afternoon glow of a west-facing space
In terms of bathroom style, muted heritage tones seamlessly complement traditional designs, whereas contemporary bathrooms offer a great place to experiment with playful and bold colours. Furthermore, if your bathroom features brass or gold fixtures, you may want to opt for similarly warm colours. Alternatively, cooler hues will work well with chrome or stainless-steel accents.
Hues Of Blue
As with every colour, blue incorporates a huge range of different tints, tones and shades. Create a playful vacation vibe by introducing a powder or cerulean blue. Alternatively, a cool arctic blue can bring a tranquil, spa-like feel to your bathroom. At the other end of the spectrum, a dark navy will establish a luxurious sense of drama. A timeless deep blue hue will make a stunning statement in any bathroom.
Grey All The Way
Graceful grey or off-white will bring an elegant sense of sophistication to any room. Opting for a grey with warm undertones is a wonderful way to introduce subtle character to your bathroom. However, if you’re looking for something bolder, dark graphite makes a great choice. With sleek white bathroom furniture and stylish accessories, this minimal colour palette will help you achieve a beautiful and timeless design.
Pair a muted pistachio or sage green with warm wood accents and stone tiles to create a radiant nature-inspired retreat. Alternatively, a bright modern mint combined with colourful accessories will transform a sunny bathroom into a cool and playful space. Make a dramatic and luxurious statement by complementing an opulent emerald hue with gorgeous brass details. Add an exotic, adventurous touch with a striking tropical print.
Keep It Neutral
Calming neutral tones are ideal for establishing a minimal and timeless aesthetic. Incorporating deep sandy shades into your design will create a relaxing, spa-like ambience. The contrast between your white bathroom suite and neutral décor will emphasise the crisp, clean finish — beautifully elegant yet simple. Natural accessories like shells and landscape prints will help you achieve a chic, put-together look. For a more subtle scheme, off-white or Egyptian cotton can add warmth to your walls without being too overbearing.
