Are you bored of the way modern bathrooms only ever look bland and functional? Do you want to include something more eye-catching than white, white and more white? It sounds like you might need a little injection of colour to save yourself from a Boring Bathroom. Here are a few subtle ways you can use colour in your bathroom (without going overboard).
Out on the Tiles
Tiles are one of the best ways to brighten up a bathroom as they can be used as much or as sparingly as you need. You can tile your bathroom from floor to ceiling in brightly-coloured tiles if you wish but, if you prefer something less garish, a simple line of small mosaic tiles running along the wall can make for an attractive way to bring colour into your interior decor. If you don’t want to tile the walls, you can leave them plain but create a tile surround for your shower or sink to make things more interesting.
Painting or tiling your walls all one colour can be too much so a good way to spice things up in the bathroom is with coloured accessories instead. Liven up plain surroundings with brightly-coloured matching toothbrush holders, toilet brushes, towels and anything else you need, and you’ll instantly give your bathroom a vibrant theme that won’t feel overwhelming.
If you don’t like bright colours but still want a bit more interest in the bathroom, look into freshening up your taps, shower head, door knobs or any other bathroom furniture. Brass and copper taps can bring an air of retro chic to your bathroom as well as being a bit more colourful than standard chrome fittings.
It’s not just artificial colours that can enhance a bathroom; if you can’t decide on a colour scheme, why not try looking to nature instead? Bringing greenery into the bathroom provides life and colour that feels fresh and natural rather than loud and overburdening. Plants are also great for providing interest as they come in all shapes, sizes and colours plus they can be swapped out easily if you tire of them (unlike a big tiling job!).
