There are some simple ways to introduce and coordinate color to create a pretty bathroom.

The first step to giving your bathroom a makeover is to consider its existing and more permanent color scheme. Examine the colors , patterns and tones used for permanent fixtures such as your bath or flooring as a basis for your design. If the features are all white you can choose a color scheme of your choice. If there is a pattern within the tiles or an unusual color flooring this may limit some of your color considerations.

Generally speaking, bathrooms look their best when kept bright and airy but this doesn’t mean you can’t bring zesty and hot color in as accents. Consider featuring a wall, bath mat, towels or shower curtains in a vibrant color, pattern or stripe. For example, why not keep your walls a neutral shade, or keep them white, and add a funky pink flower arrangement or piece of wall art and coordinate with pink and white striped towels. Because of the inexpensive and flexible nature of accessories you can buy a luxury set of white towels then, as fashions change, buy a handful of vibrant, patterned and high design towels to add to your bundle and create a fresh and new look.

In addition to towels, bath mats and shower curtains why not consider adding color through your window treatments. Shop around or buy a made to measure blind in a vibrant fabric or stripe which will act as the color scheme for the rest of room. There is a huge range of bathroom designed paints and wallpapers which can create a fantastic focal point or feature wall if the room is large enough.

Finally, why not get technical and create a color scheme using light. Speak to specialists who can advise you on the huge range of bathroom safe light fixtures that can sit underneath your bathroom cabinet, sink or shower and throw a burst of colorful light on to your walls similar to the effect seen in bars and nightclubs. Choose from a huge range of colors to reflect your mood and change your otherwise white elements in purples, reds, greens and pinks!

Whatever your choice, be sure to balance the necessity for practicality and desire for design. Create your design using bathroom safe but versatile and inexpensive accessories such as towels, vases, wall art and lighting that can be easily changed as your tastes develop.

Until next time…
