How to Add Colour to Your Bathroom


Add a splash of colour for a cheap yet dramatic way to revive your bathroom, or work in colour to your new bathroom installation during the design and planning stage.

Whether on the walls or in the form of accessories, a bit of colour can make a huge difference. If your bathroom is modern why not opt for one bold feature wall? If you have a traditional bathroom, a softer more subtle colour on all the walls will give your bathroom that subtle backdrop of colour. Tiles are a great medium for adding texture and colour, although sometimes it works best to stick with more neutral colours and add a pop of colour elsewhere, rather than going crazy with colourful tiles throughout.


Colour Co-ordinates

When choosing a colour scheme for your bathroom, remember that colour can be mood changing. For a relaxing, soft, calming feel lavender, blues and greens are perfect. If you want something a bit more lively then brighter colours like yellow and orange are sure to help wake you up in the mornings. Alternatively why not opt for a striking bathroom wallpaper? Wallpaper is a great way to add colour to the bathroom and a cost effective way to re-decorate.

Dress Up Your Bath

To add texture and colour to your bathroom, tile the side of your bath rather than opting for a plain white panel. Mosaics, large tiles or wooden bath panels will work equally well.


Choose Statement Furniture

Your bathroom doesn't have to be full of colour, simply add boldly coloured glossy furniture for an instant splash of colour.

Hit the Tiles

Coloured LED Lighting

LEDs have not only become a commodity in the bathroom, they are also a great way to add ambience. From LED mirrors, to LED taps and lighting recessed into ceilings, bath panels and floor tiles, the trend is spreading fast.


Bring the Outdoors Indoors

Connect with nature in your bathroom by adding some greenery to your window space. If your bathroom is in the loft space, add a skylight that way you can lie back in the bath at the end of a long hard day and do some star gazing.
