How to add colour to your bathroom

Thinking about redecorating your bathroom can feel quite overwhelming. From ceramics and shower enclosures to tiles and accessories, it’s hard to know where to begin! If you’re looking to add colour to your bathroom but are worried about adding too much or too little, we’ve spoken to Bathroom Brands to offer some advice on how to successfully add colour to your space. We hope this gives you some inspiration and helps you to embrace boldness in the bathroom...

Black in the bathroom

A shade that’s elegant, sophisticated and luxurious, black in the bathroom is guaranteed to make a statement. Adding a sense of grandeur to any space, large or small, black is a popular choice in bathroom interiors at the moment. More and more elements of this colour are being introduced into residential and commercial interiors in several different ways. From wallpaper and ceramics to brassware and accessories, there are many options available to help you achieve this look. We love the new Jet collection from Burlington, which was influenced by British Heritage. The Whitby Jet Stone, found along the North Yorkshire Coastline inspired the collection, which offers infinite depth and a daring presence. Achieve a bold, stylish interior, by pairing matching glossy black ceramics with dark tropical wallpaper for a fun and modern approach. For a lasting look, and one that can change easily with moving trends, combine black ceramics with plain wall colours, which can be painted in-line with changing colour tastes.

If you want to use black in a more subtle way, add smaller accessories with black detailing - these taps from Burlington are a perfect choice. Britton offers some lovely matt black accessories too, perfect for a more modern interior. Set against clashing pastel tiled walls, allowing the black accessories to pop from a soft backdrop for a playful interior that is bound to uplift you.

Bold coloured walls in the bathroom

If black is not for you, then a great, simple way of adding colour to your bathroom is by painting walls in one bold colour. Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2020 is Classic Blue and this is the ideal stunning shade for the bathroom. One of the strongest hues on the colour spectrum, blue is believed to bring down blood pressure and slow respiration and heart rate, providing the perfect setting for a relaxing bathroom. Fresh, bright white ceramics (check out the stunning range of ClearStone and Natural Stone baths and basins from Clearwater) will pop against this calming shade, leaving you with a chic, stylish bathing space. If you’d prefer a more delicate approach, opt for wall panels and dado rails painted in the same colour to add interest to your space. Combine with earthy accessories to add depth and detail to complete the look.

Whether you want to embrace full-on colour in the bathroom, are looking for a coordinated, yet on-trend look, or want to add colourful hues in a subtle way, we hope we’ve inspired you to be brave with colour in the bathroom.
