How to add colour to your bathroom

White or neutral bathrooms often seem like a sensible decision but they can leave you feeling like your bathroom lacks that wow factor. Adding some colour to your bathroom is a great way to help make the space feel like yours. Whether you go bold and big or just add a pop or two, colour will help make your bathroom unique. So express your personality and make your bathroom the sanctuary of your dreams by exploring some ways to add some colour to your space.

Basins don’t have to be white

You use your basin all of the time so you should like looking at it. In great news coloured basins are right on trend. No longer is your only choice white. Today designers are inspiring us all to make your basin a thing of beauty. For some inspiration explore Caroma’s range of coloured basins here. From pink to green to grey to black they make it easy for you to make your bathroom stand out from the crowd. Best of all they look stunning as a feature in a neutral space.

Tiles, wallpaper and paint

There are so many gorgeous colours you can bring into your bathroom space. Making a statement with colour can be as simple as a painted feature wall or patterned wallpaper that you love but you can also use tiles to bring a richness of colour. Tiles come in endless colours and can be used in a variety of ways. From floor to ceiling tiles, a feature wall, a feature niche in the shower or even a colourful floor, the tiles you choose can bring the colour you crave.

Touches of timber

Timber is a wonderful way to bring colour, warmth and a sense of nature to your bathroom. Timber vanities, a timber feature wall or even a timber ceiling can bring colour in a more natural way.

Think about tapware

Colour doesn’t have to mean bright shades and hues. It can also mean seductive metallics or enticing blacks. This is easily achieved by selecting beautiful metals for your space. Hardware like taps, showers and accessories are a great way to bring colour to your bathroom. Think of your hardware a little like jewellery. It brings that bit of bling and makes a simple outfit feel special. Try and match your hardware colours, matching your taps to your shower to your hinges and handles helps create that effortless elegance that modern bathrooms demand.

Glorious green

Plants can transform your bathroom. From a green wall to pots or hanging plants greenery can bring that lush feel to your space and stop it from feeling sterile. Just make sure the plants have plenty of natural light and are happy in a steamy space. If you are lacking light or a green thumb artificial plants can give you a similar effect.

Colour you can change

If you don’t want to commit to colour you can have a fling by simply adding decorative elements to your bathroom. Towels and accessories are simple but effective and they don’t have to cost you a lot of money. Whether your towels are pretty and pastel, bright and bold, or richly coloured they can instantly change the mood of your bathroom and give it a whole new look. A pro tip is to go beyond the towels and add a pop or two of the same colour in other ways to really make your eye notice it. Think about your soap dispenser, or candle holder or a vase or trinket. The best thing is that you can change your towels and accessories with the seasons or even your moods.

Art belongs in the bathroom too

Don’t forget that bathrooms can be a home for art too. Brightly coloured artworks are a simple but effective way to bring pops of colour to the bathroom. Just remember to make sure the artwork is fully sealed in glass to stop any steam or moisture coming in.

Have fun

Your bathroom should be a place that inspires you, calms you or gets you ready to take on the day or the world. Think about what kind of feeling you want your space to give you and what kinds of colours help give you that sense. There’s no right or wrong way to do colour, just your way. So bring your colourful personality and have fun.
