There are so many ways to embrace colour in the bathroom.
Most people opt for a neutral colour scheme in the bathroom as it won’t date and is more attractive to potential buyers if the property is put on the market.
But if you have no intentions to sell, why not embrace colour in your bathroom?
How to get the bathroom colour scheme right
When designing your bathroom, there are plenty of colours to choose from.
Opt for colours you love and can with live for 15-20 years and consider how they will work with the interior style of your home.
Blues will work in a Hamptons or coastal interior.
Oranges, mustards and reds will work well in a boho or eclectic style.
Greens are often chosen in architectural or contemporary styled homes.
Colours which are trending now, won’t necessarily be the trend in a years time so that’s why it’s best to choose a colour scheme you love.
Decide how many colours you wish to embrace in the bathroom. It’s best to stick with 2 or 3 colours and abide by the 70/20/10 rule.
70% of the bathroom should be in the lightest shade, 20% the next lightest and the darkest shade should be 10%.
If you decide to only use 2 colours, the darker colour should be 30% and the lighter colour 70% in the room.
Rules can be broken too. If you’re unsure on how to get the colour balance right, get an interior designer to help you.
