Learning how to bring color into your bathroom is an essential part of today’s bathroom remodeling experience. Gone are the days of boring bathroom designs that simply revolve around making the space functional. Today’s homeowners are also interested in making this important room aesthetically pleasing … sometimes even a work of art!
Let’s take a look at some simple ways to add color to your bathroom either in a bold way or in a more subtle manner … the choice is yours!
6 Easy Ways to Bring Color Into Your Bathroom Design
1. Painted Accents
Perhaps one of the easiest ways to bring color into your bathroom is through painted accents. These can include entire walls or even smaller wall sections such as you see in this North Tustin spa-like bathroom. A beautiful blue adds a cool, relaxing vibe while simultaneously highlighting the adjacent white semi-custom cabinets and built-in makeup vanity.
2. Colorful Tile Designs
There is so much that can be done with tile in today’s bathroom designs. Whether you want an entire wall covered in brightly colored tiles or you opt for something more subtle, using tile to add color and texture is a popular trend.
In this Foothill Ranch bathroom remodel, the shower niche is beautifully accented by a marble and limestone mosaic design. The same pattern is continued in the backsplash above the vanity, highlighting the neutral colors of the room but also adding depth and texture to the space.
3. Show Stopping Vanities
Single or dual vanities are often chosen for their functionality. While function is critical in this frequently trafficked room, aesthetics matter, too. Add color to your bathroom and elevate the entire design by choosing a colorful vanity. The Maritime Blue Kemper cabinets in this Foothill Ranch bathroom, for example, are a solid color but provide a stunning contrast to the room’s otherwise neutral color palette.
4. Colorful Countertops
The type of countertop you choose for your bathroom is important for usability and durability. But it’s also an integral part of the room’s color scheme. It’s easy to add color to your bathroom with a solid colored countertop or even a multi-colored one.
This master bathroom in Ladera Ranch features a dark colored countertop with matching backsplash. Although it appears to be made out of soapstone, the countertop is actually made from quartz. Its dark color adds a luxurious feel to the space while also making the lighter colored walls and cabinets pop.
In contrast, this Laguna Niguel bathroom remodel uses a multi-colored quartz stone countertop to add pizazz to the room while easily complementing the rest of the room’s color scheme.
5. Mixing Materials
Simply using a variety of materials can bring color to your bathroom as well as create an intriguing design. Take a look at this Mission Viejo master bathroom remodel. Its eclectic materials include floating wood shelves, an accent wall of 3D stacked stone, and porcelain and glass shower tiles. The end result is a rustic modern design that’s both colorful and relaxing.
6. Colorful Linens and decor
Not every colorful bathroom feature has to be set in stone … or wood … or quartz … or tile. If you’re looking for an easy way to bring color to your bathroom but not make it permanent, consider using towels, artwork, or other decor to add pops of color throughout the room. These can easily be changed with the seasons or whenever it suits your fancy.
