Using Bold Colour in Your Bathroom
Using Bold Colour in Your Bathroom
Bold colour is a fantastic way to make an impact in your bathroom. It is also an easy way to transform a room if you don’t have the budget or the time for a full renovation; even just one pop of bright colour will add visual interest and transform the look of the bathroom!
Our guide will offer tips and advice on where and how to use bold colours, as well as what colours to use.
Where & How to Use Bold Colour
Bold colours can work in both large and small bathrooms. We recommend a warm, bright colour such as in smaller spaces with an absence of natural light. For brighter and larger rooms, you are free to play around with darker colours such as black.
Looking to add a pop of colour to a dull room? A bold accent tile can be used as a border to break up a single block of plain colour. It can also be used as a feature wall to highlight certain areas such as a shower enclosure, bath, vanity area, kitchen backsplash or stove. Alternatively, a bold floor tile can completely transform a room!
A vanity unit in a bright colour also makes an eye-catching centrepiece for any bathroom. For example, a yellow vanity will add a stunning splash of colour to a grey bathroom. if you are fitting more than one piece of furniture in your bathroom, make sure they are all in the same bold colour to create a sense of uniformity.
No matter what colour you choose and where you use it, make sure it is the only bold accent in the room. You should also contrast it with a plain colour to add definition and balance to the space.
