Neutral shades are a popular choice for bathrooms, but this should not mean that adding color is completely prohibited. In such a small space, color may seem risky, but it’s just the opposite. On a small scale, it’s easy to dare without going too far.Here are 10 easy ways to add color to your bathroom design, while leaving the room clean and set up.
1. Painting first
In practice, painting is the easiest and most affordable way to add a large amount of color to a room. We recommend that you first select the desired shade, and then make the rest of the color scheme of the room around it.
2. Choose an accent wall
If the idea of adding color to the entire room seems a little too much for your taste, try making just one. The key here is to choose the right wall to be your centerpiece — you want one with a strong focal point or one that’s right on your doorstep.
3. Play With Colorful Tiles
When it comes to tiles, the phrase “less is more” rings true. Gone are the days of covering the entire room with saturated tiles. Quite modern bathrooms use colored tiles to draw attention to a focal point. Use it in a spa-like rain shower or as an eye-catching backsplash behind your vanity.
4. Try The Bathtub
A modern option that will definitely have an impact is the addition of a shaded bath. You can choose from a variety of materials such as copper or painted porcelain, but whichever one you choose, be sure to choose a shade that will please you for a long time.
5. Make Your Vanity Pop
When it comes to adding color to vanity, you have two options: add color to the top or to the base. Remember to choose one and keep the other surface neutral for balance. Colored bases can often be a DIY project and work best on large vanities with closet space or shelves. For countertops, your best bet is to choose a colored marble or granite.
6. Use Colored Napkins
Why are napkins such a good choice when it comes to adding color: they come in every shade imaginable, are relatively inexpensive, and very easy to swap out if you change your mind.
7. Focus on floor coverings
A bath mat or carpet can bring color to the room and also has a functional purpose in bathrooms with a bath or shower. Choose a color that harmonizes with the rest of your accent colors for a truly cohesive look.
8. Do not forget about the decor
A common misconception is that because bathrooms are often smaller than other spaces in your home, you don’t have to worry about decorative items. The opposite is true. A few well-placed decorative objects are the secret to making this space feel truly collected. Consider using candles, baskets, or decorative displays to really bring your design into the home.
9. Hang Vibrant Art On The Wall
A well-placed work of art on the wall is an easy way to add a touch of color. Please note that when finding wall art for the bathroom, it is important to consider the humidity. Be sure to choose a water-resistant material or add a frame for protection.
10. Apply A Little Green
If everything else does not arouse your interest, pick up a little color from nature. Whether they are real or synthetic, colored or just plain green, a few plants can go a long way in adding that color to your bathroom.
