Red Bathroom Decor
Color is an essential bathroom element. Many homeowners are interested in red bathroom decor for its ability to add bright, bold splashes to any bath space. Red, and the wide range of red-related colors from pink to purple, can provide striking, visually impactful color bursts that can liven up your bath design.
HGTV fan BelleInteriors was inspired by the time period of her early 20th-century home when she remodeled the bathroom. Yellow-green walls and a bold pink floral arrangement provide great contrast between the black marble floor and the room's cool color scheme.
Dash of Yellow
Black walls can make a room look small and dark, but not this bathroom that pulls it off beautifully using a good balance of white, light and a splash of color. HGTV fan KT_Designs incorporated subtle touches of yellow for an element of color against the walls and furnishings. A black-and-white toile shower curtain helps pull the entire look together.
Nothing is more relaxing and serene than the sea. HGTV fan VintageKitchen used sea-inspired colors of green as inspiration for this spa-like master bathroom. The walls are covered with aqua glass tiles that end at an angled beadboard ceiling. A vintage crystal chandelier and white china cabinet lend a shabby cottage feel.
If you can't change your bathroom tile, try decorating around it in a coordinating color. HGTV fan mstupski infused this gray-tiled room with yellow and brought it back to life on a budget. Sunny accessories, paint and a floral bathmat dramatically brighten the gray tile.
Whether you're using red as a theme throughout the entirety of your bathroom color scheme, or simply interspersing it subtly and conservatively to create an understated but still powerful red theme, this versatile color is sure to add warmth, interest and excitement to your bathroom.
Red bathroom decor can be expressed through a full color scheme or a few simple accessories. Many homeowners interested in incorporating a red decor theme will start with the linens in their bathroom. Bath mats, bath towels, hand towels, shower curtains and window coverings are all great opportunities to display a color theme. All of these decor elements are available in a wide range of red shades, in solids, stripes and patterns. From pinks to deep reds to purples, you'll find a deep selection of hues, from bold to subtle, at many home goods retailers, either online or in-store. In the context of a bathroom design that features a full red takeover from walls to floors to accessories, linens can be a key component, but they'll be just as useful in a more subtle color scheme expression where they're the only red elements in the design.
To continue your red theme throughout the bathroom, you might want to feature red as an accent color on any furniture in the space. Benches and chairs can feature red or red-hued cushions, cabinet hardware and crown molding can be painted red, and wooden furniture can be stained or painted in red or shades of red as well. Patterns with red as a featured color can be a striking addition and feature stripes, gingham, plaid, polka dots or floral designs.
Wallpaper is another way to express a red decor theme. Traditional but casual toile, stripes, geometric patterns and floral prints are all types of wallpaper that can be found in red.
Using artwork to carry your color scheme throughout a space is another option. Consider a gallery wall that features black and white photos with red frames, or artwork itself that features red as a primary color. Small statuary or collectibles can also keep the red theme consistent, as can containers for toiletries, bath accessories and linens.
Surfaces are another way to show of a color theme in your bathroom design. Floors, backsplashes and countertops can all feature red tile. Stone and marble can often be dyed to feature red inflections or a full-on red color. Wood floors can even be painted shades of red or pink if you're looking for a bath space that features a red theme from top to bottom.
