Neutral shades are a popular pick for bathrooms, but that shouldn’t mean that adding colour is totally off limits. In such a small space, colour might seem risky — but it’s just the opposite. On a small scale it’s easy to go bold without going overboard.

Here are a handful of easy ways to add colour into your bathroom design, while still leaving the space feeling clean and put together.

Paint First

Practically speaking, paint is the simplest and most affordable way to add a large punch of colour to a space. We recommend selecting the shade you want first and then building the rest of the room’s colour around it.

Opt For An Accent Wall

If the idea of adding colour to the entire room seems a bit too much for your tastes, try doing just one. The key here is to pick the right wall to be your showpiece — you want one with a strong focal point or the one that’s directly across from the door.

Play With Colorful Tile

Where tile is concerned, the phrase “less is more” rings true. Gone are the days of covering the entire room in saturated tile. Rather modern bathrooms use colourful tiles to draw attention to a focal point. Use it in a spa-like rainforest shower or as an eye-catching backsplash behind your vanity.

Use Colorful Towels

Why are towels such a great choice when it comes to adding colour: they’re available in every shade imaginable, are relatively inexpensive and super easy to swap out if you change your mind.

Hang Vibrant Wall Art

A well-placed piece of wall art is an easy way to add a pop of colour. Keep in mind when finding wall art for the bathroom, it’s important to take moisture into consideration. Be sure to either choose a water resistant material or add a frame for protection.
