It’s a well known fact that colour has a huge influence on our emotions, our thinking and our reactions. Just try to imagine a life without colour! Yet when it comes to interior design, that is all too often what happens. For bathrooms especially, many people mistakenly assume that white is the de facto shade. They worry that bold, bright colours will seem too brash, too vulgar, too intimidating. Well, we think it’s time for a rethink. Bathrooms most certainly don’t have to be neutral. And you definitely aren’t limited to plain, white, simple and boring. If you’re ready to be adventurous, we have plenty of colourful bathrooms ideas to inspire you. Read on to discover how to incorporate colour in your bathroom and create a stylish, modern alternative to monochrome.
Off the wall
If you’re not used to decorating with colour, it can be difficult to know where to start. Think about the shades you know you like, and draw inspiration from that. If you’re not too sure about coloured sanitaryware, why not start with your walls? Simply choose some colours and then experiment with the tones and hues. Make sure you place your shortlisted shades in all areas of your bathroom (dark corners, near the window, etc). That’s because colours can change appearance according to where they are placed and the light they are in.
What do you think of these Ravello Tiles from Fired Earth?
It’s true that light, bright coloured walls can make your bathroom feel open and airy. But don’t discount darker and/or vibrant hues in line with the colourful bathrooms trend. We adore the bold blue of these Ravello tiles from Fired Earth. These were inspired by the tiles found at the Villa Temple Mare in the town of Ravello on the Amalfi coast. Perfect if you’re a fan of classic Mediterranean style!
This Sanderson wallpaper creates dramatic impact in this colourful bathroom
If you want to add colour – but not on every wall – select a statement area. And don’t think tiles are the only option among your colourful bathrooms ideas. In the right location, wallpaper works surprisingly well in bathrooms, particularly in a colourful bathrooms scheme. We think the turquoise and pink colour on this striking Flamingos design from Sanderson adds real interest and visual appeal. Visit wallpaperdirect.com for more inspiration.

The art of accessorising
If you’re not quite ready for pastel sanitaryware, there are plenty of other ways to colour-bomb your bathroom. Mix and match some bold furniture and accessories instead. This is an easy way to introduce bright pops of colour to your colourful bathrooms scheme, without too much expense or commitment. Colour-lover Betina Bianculli shows us how it’s done with primary accents of red, yellow, green and blue. Behold her bathroom on Design Sponge – and we promise, you’ll never go back to beige!
Do you require luminosity in your bathroom? Then
you’ll love our funky flush pipes and brackets!
Updating your existing sanitaryware and furniture with coloured elements is another fast design fix. We supply flush pipes and brackets in any colour of your choice. Make your bathroom zing with flashes of luminous green, or stay subtle with more traditional shades such as copper.
Want something extra from your loo brush? We can
colour-match your accessories to suit your signature colour
They might not be the most glamorous of accessories, but don’t overlook the humble toilet brush, bin or paper holder. Small accessories like this can create a big impact so don’t automatically plump for chrome or white. Our top colourful bathrooms tip is to select a shade that complements or even contrasts with the rest of your bathroom décor.
Citrus colours on bathroom accessories can instantly
bring a burst of colour to the bathroom
Citrus colours such as lime green are a great way to go bold and bright. This matching set from Wesco is a stylish way to dip a toe into the colourful bathroom trend. All three feature a powder-coated steel exterior for extra durability.
If you have other ideas of how you’d like your toilet brush and holder to look, just tell us what you’d like. Retro, powder pink, with gold styling, perhaps? No problem.
