If you own your own home there’s no reason why you should be stuck with a bland builder’s beige bathroom. You can add color to brighten it up, and make it a place of luxury and retreat. White bathtubs, sinks, and toilets are the basis for your new bathroom interior design. Here are some ideas to consider before attempting your next bathroom renovation.
The walls are going to be the easiest way to add a splash of color to your bathroom. You can go as light or as dark as you wish. Since the white color of the fixtures are going to be contrasting with a dark color, such as royal blue, you can effectively utilize darker paint colors in a bathroom. Consider that there may be a white door, white bathroom vanities and white picture or mirror frames for contrast.
If you carefully choose your wall color, it’s possible to match it up with a color in your bathroom linoleum or tile. If your flooring has multiple colors, choose the color that is represented less, such as royal blue, which will match your walls.
It’s up to you whether you choose to have a white bathroom vanity surrounding a white sink, or if you want to opt for a wooden one instead. There are a wide assortment of vanity colors and materials. If you opt for wood, match it up with your other bathroom furniture. Perhaps your mirror will also have a matching color, and other big bold picture frames that decorate the walls.
Some bathroom vanities may have an antique or retro look to them. They may look a lot like a dresser that has been recreated to fit in the bathroom. If your vanity fits a certain period in time, such as Victorian, ensure that it fits in with the colors of your walls.
Plants and Linens
Many people forget that they can place plants in their bathrooms, particularly if there is at least one light source from a window. A dash of green can provide a refreshing look. You can also coordinate your plant’s container or vase with the rest of the room.
Curtains, shower curtains, towels, and pillows can all pull together the final look of your bathroom. These colors may coordinate or contrast with the color of your room. Remember not to make everything the same color. Choose a palette of three main colors and stick with it. For example, white, royal blue, and aqua blue, or brown, white, and pale green.
Don’t be afraid to ask for painting samples, or material samples, so you can get an idea of how the colors will work together in your bathroom. The goal is to never drench your bathroom in color, as you want to achieve a nice balance between neutral and colors. You’ll appreciate how you took time and care with your bathroom design aesthetics, once your bathroom renovation project is done. Soon you’ll have a beautiful retreat within your home.
