6 Bright Bathrooms Where a Single Color Is the Star
Get rid of all those paint swatches. Sometimes the best way to make a statement is with just one color.
Deciding on a bathroom color scheme can be daunting. What color looks good with this color? Where do I even put color? Walls, tiles, countertops, backsplash — the combination of color placement is endless. Before you know it, your entire house is covered in paint samples. Here's some good news that should clear up that color palette confusion. Color can be easy when it’s just one making the statement.
Check out these six bold bathrooms that creatively use one color to make all the difference.
Go Counter Crazy
No need to worry about a paint color for your walls when your countertop is the attention grabber. This bathroom by Eric Spry went big by selecting a vibrant red for the countertop and pairing it with simple white vessel sinks. If you’re planning your own bathroom reno, consider making the counters the focal piece.
Wow With Wallpaper
I’m all about painting walls with colors that stray from the neutral color palette. This powder room designed by Chango and Co. steps it up a notch by adding a floor-to-ceiling graphic wallpaper in salmon pink. Save a Saturday and give your bathroom an affordable makeover with fun wallpaper.
Wall Tile for the Win
Instead of relying on a paint job to add some color, this Asian inspired Zen bathroom by Jackson Design and Remodeling dedicated an entire wall to bright yellow tile. Not only does it brighten things up, the sunny glass tile wall adds visual interest to the overall simplicity of space.
Paint in Perfect Places
Matching cabinetry and mirror trim in an eccentric color? Sign my bathroom up. This bathroom designed by Judith Balis uses bold green in an unexpected way by painting the cabinets and mirror trim with the same rich color. If you have that wow-factor color you’re dyeing to use (no pun intended), spice things up and make your cabinets the statement piece.
There’s nothing better than a hot shower after a long day. This clean and simple bathroom by Ana Donohue made the shower the center piece by tiling the walls with a blue backsplash. The industrial sliding glass door is a fun industrial twist, but leaves all the attention to the tub and shower.
I’ll admit, using wood for the floors and cabinetry combined with a brown brick wall sounds like a lot. But I am loving that the monochromatic palette of this urban bathroom is established through natural materials. Rich wood flooring and cabinets contrast beautifully with the white tub making this spa bathroom a relaxing getaway.
