When choosing a colour scheme for your bathroom, think about palettes to complement the bathroom features, and those which suit the theme of comfort and cleanliness.
Neutrals always make a great base. Try stark white to create a clean palette or add some warmer beige tones to create a modern, homely feel. Don’t be afraid to mix it up though. Neutrals can be combined in different ways. Try white plus cocoa brown or a light green to create a cool, clean, and classic feel. Green is also an energizing and uplifting colour.
When creating a bold look, a great guiding principle is to pick one neutral, and one darker, rich colour. To do it successfully, think about proportion and rely on a 70/30 distribution: use the lightest colour for 70 percent of the room, and the boldest for 30 percent.
A mostly neutral colour scheme can go a long way toward establishing a bathroom atmosphere of serenity and calmness. Two neutrals, such as grey and white, make a striking colour scheme that doesn’t date, without being boring. For added visual interest, include pattern, such as patterned tiles on a floor, or classic marble on countertops.
Go organic with naturally-inspired hues, such as soft green and duck-egg blue, to give you that stunning classic edge and help to enhance an organic vibe. These types of colours are a fabulous way to help soften otherwise hard edges and geometric shapes creating a classic, classy look.
In all instances, think about the bathroom as an integral part of the house – whatever style and colour scheme you choose, it needs to fit within the broader design tones of your home.
