We're Crushing On Sunny, Yellow Bathrooms
I'll take a bath and some lemonade, please.
We still can’t get over Beyonce’s Lemonade album release last month. She has us dreaming in all shades of yellow, and with summer approaching, it’s the perfect time to try the cheery hue in your home. Check out these fabulous, fresh-squeezed bathroom designs for inspiration.
A New Take on Subway Tile
Yellow-Tiled Angled Bathroom Wall With Hexagonal Floors
Because pedestal tubs appear to float in their surroundings, they can be a wise choice for compact bathrooms. Not only do they take up less visual space, but their smaller footprint also exposes more flooring, which is preferable when showing off intricate hexagonal floor tiles like these.
Subway tile has been going strong in the design world for quite some time now. Switch out the classic white tile for a playful yellow to give your space some personality.
Small Yet Vibrant Pops
Modern Bathroom With Vanity Storage
For the bathroom of a designer showhouse, architect Gregg De Meza designed a vanity with a sophisticated modern exterior and sunny yellow interior. “The storage was designed with form and function in mind,” he says. “To keep a clean modern aesthetic, the vanity front is clean and simple. Pull it open for toiletries and get a bonus hit of sunshine to kick off the day.”

Maybe you're not ready to bathe your entire bathroom in the happy hue. Instead, consider incorporating small but bold accents throughout the space. You'll never be so happy to open a bathroom drawer.
Yellow is one of the most cheerful wall colors you can choose — it creates the perfect backdrop for fun, whimsical lighting.
Mix and Match Styles

Yellow is also ultra-versatile and works well with a variety of design styles. Try mixing those styles to make your space reflect your taste and your home's roots. Here, Craftsman elements pair with modern touches for a look that's bold but warm.
Glass Tile That Glimmers
Master Bathroom With Yellow Mosaic Tile Tub
This master bath was completely recreated by designer Troy Beasley. The tub is the focal point with a soft oval shape that is reflected in the curved back wall. Colorful yellow tiles were applied to the tub face and all the way up the back wall for a vibrant, fresh look. Designer tip: Go bold with single color in small tiles for a huge impact.
Opt for a yellow glass-tile surround to help reflect light in your bathroom, especially if your space lacks windows.
Let Your Vanity Do the Talking
Bright Yellow Cabinets in Contemporary Bathroom
As seen on Love It or List It, Too, designer Jillian Harris converted a spare bedroom that was cramped and dingy into a stunning bathroom, complete with a clawfoot soaking tub and walk-in shower. A bright yellow cabinet pops against the black and white color scheme.

Make your vanity the star of the show by giving it a coat of sunny yellow paint. This might be just the solution if you're working with a bulky, outdated piece.
Neon Stripes Energize Small Bathroom
In the bathroom, neon stripes invigorate the simple fixtures and pared-down accessories. A narrow ledge offers much-needed shelf space behind the mounted sink.

... Or Water Down Your Lemonade
Bold is not always better — especially if your design style tends to be soft and light. If you fall in the watered-down category, opt for this subtle shade of lemonade.
Daring and Bright Bathroom With Asian and Midcentury Touches
This master bathroom exudes a Zen quality with clean lines in the double vanity, mirror and shoji-style sliding door. Bright yellow tile and glass pendant lights invoke touches of midcentury style while infusing energy into the otherwise serene space.
Pair yellow with purple to pack a powerful punch. Don't be afraid to try different hues of the complementary colors to find the pairing that best suits your space.
Zesty Accent Wall
Opt for a yellow accent wall to bring some zing to a sleek, clean space.
