How to Choose the Most Effective Bathroom Colours

The bathroom is the one room in our homes in which we can truly have some time alone, run a hot bath or fire up a steamy shower and unwind after a long day. It’s fair to say that most people value their time in the bathroom, quiet time to wash and think is therapeutic both physically and mentally; this is why choosing appropriate colours is hugely important when looking to redecorate and remodel your bathroom. Whether you are looking to change the colour as part of a larger remodelling project or you’re just looking to add a new lick of paint and a new feel to the room, picking the right colour for you and your home is a decision you will not regret.

Changing the colour of your bathroom can have a number of great effects on you and your home. Taking a small, compact bathroom and adding lighter colours and a source of natural light can truly bring new life and a sense of spaciousness to a room. Combine this with some carefully chosen accessories in matching tones and colours such as new curtains, washcloth + soap sets, towels and bathmats and you will have successfully changed the appearance and feel of your bathroom by simply altering the colour of your walls and accessories.

If you are looking to create a more modern bathroom then consider adding darker, more stylish colours with some added textures to have the ultimate overall effect. Black or grey granite tiles on the floor and walls are a sure fire way to play it safe and have a bathroom that looks fantastic on completion. Combining these darker colours with stainless steel taps with a quality polished effect your bathroom will have a modern appearance with a touch of class that speaks volumes.

Many people prefer to express their individuality a little more when they redecorate their home, and for those people the bathroom should be no different. Taking care to apply your chosen colours with care and consideration will result in a great looking bathroom that you can be truly happy with, but ensure you don’t go overboard. Apply colours that are bright and vibrant in smaller doses that you would with pale are darker colours; too much florescent green is not easy on the eyes in large amounts so try and apply this colour in the form of tiles, towels and accessories. Contrast this with a more neutral colour for maximum effect without having to compromise on your dream colours!
