Stop. Check. Think. Choosing a colour scheme for your new bathroom is something that needs a lot of consideration. After all, this is a decision that’s going to affect the overall success of your renovation. And the re-sale value of your home. We’re talking about decisions for the long term. Something you can’t change once it’s done…
I get it: now I’ve made it sound really scary. Relax – it’s not as bad as all that! But there are a number of things you need to think about before you sign off on the colour palette for your new bathroom:
Firstly, it’s wise to get advice from a professional. Somebody who’s had experience in interior design and knows the ins and outs. It’s not that your ideas aren’t good, but they can help you take your ideas from good to amazing, and help you create something beyond your expectations! Bathroom renovations are generally costly, so you want to be sure you get it right.
Colour isn’t the only thing to keep in mind when designing your remodel. Consider textures too: wood, stone, glass, stainless steel, copper, rattan, linen, chrome… the list of options goes on and on. Contrasting textures create interest and natural design features every bit as beautiful as the colours themselves.
Now, lets look at a few of today’s popular colour schemes.
White is always Alight
If you want a safe bet, white is always a winner! Whether your style is modern, contemporary or classic, white never fails to impress. It’s bright, fresh, clean and airy. And, best of all, you can pair it with accessories of any colour – change the towels and decor to suit your mood!
However, an ‘all white’ bathroom is too clinical for some people’s liking, so you may wish to introduce another colour, for example, darker floor tiles or feature tiles in the shower recess.
Grey is Great
Another all time favorite. Grey is versatile, always in fashion and can be adapted to achieve whatever effect you’re trying to create: charcoal grey for an extra touch of luxury, light grey for a calming, natural oasis. Think about pairing it with natural stone or wood to create a genuinely organic and slightly rustic feel.
For the Love of Latte
Natural; organic; calming; beautiful. Latte is a colour that’s well worth considering. Paired with white or cream, it connects us with a place beyond the modern world of ceramic and glass. Consider natural stone, wood, and unpolished metal finishes to enhance this palette.
Blue is Beaut
Blue has always been and still is a classic bathroom colour choice. And for a good reason too: its always beautiful. Whether it’s pale blue for a natural, serene ambiance or navy blue for a real colour pop, try to keep the design simple and let the colour be the feature.
