Adding Colour To A Bathroom

September 30, 2014 by Belinda

I was very excited to be asked by Perini Tiles to write a feature post for their blog about adding colour to a bathroom. Here is what I shared with their readers……

I am a big lover of colour and the bathroom is no exception. Many people opt for the safety of neutral tones but I think colour is a great way to lift a space and add a sense of fun and personality. Here are my 4 tips for adding colour to a bathroom.

The Hard Surfaces:

If you are starting from scratch, this is a great time to choose what colour you would like to introduce. This can be achieved through the selection of tiles and cabinetry. Or, by keeping all the hard surfaces in a neutral tone, the walls could be painted a feature colour. 05d08125bf064e266ff957b97fff8f8b

In the last couple of years, the range of colourful and patterned bath towels has thankfully expanded.  I often wondered why there were so many bright beach towels available but this never seemed to translate to bath towels.  Towels can act as the ‘artwork’ for the bathroom and are an easy way to introduce colour. 8b66278eb9771020c5061f47f7148331

Foliage and Flowers:

An affordable way to soften all the hard surfaces in a bathroom is to add a plant or vase of fresh flowers. Some plants actually thrive in the moist bathroom conditions. Just a single stem of green is all is takes to bring the outdoors in.

Soap dispensers, soap dishes and candles are inexpensive and can be a more subtle way of adding colour. Introducing furniture such as a coloured stool can be practical for storage but also give the bathroom a ‘spa-like’ feel.
