Purple bathroom decor can come in many forms, from a few simple accessories to an entire theme seen throughout the space. One of the first elements to consider incorporating into your purple bathroom decor theme is the linen collection in the bathroom. Towels, bath mats, shower curtains and window shades are all great candidates for carrying a color and hue theme throughout the space. They're also widely available in a range of purple, lavender and lilac colors, from light shades almost bordering on pink to striking, powerful and dramatic deep purples. Even in a design that doesn't feature purple as a primary color or even an accent on walls, floors or fixtures, these linens and other accessories can be a great opportunity to add a pop of purple to any bathroom space.

For an even more consistent theme, consider featuring purple as a primary or accent color on furniture. Cushions on benches or chairs, hardware on cabinets or even the cabinets themselves can feature shades of purple effectively. Don't be afraid to use patterns, either—bold stripes, polka dot designs, plaid and gingham can all feature well on cushions and other areas.
When it comes to wallpaper, you'll have plenty of choices among designs featuring purple. Playful yet traditional toile, modern geometric patterns and more style-neutral stripes and solids are all available and can be an effective way to incorporate purple into your bathroom design.

Artwork can also be a great way to add purple to a bathroom decor scheme. Impressionistic or modern designs featuring purple as a primary color are plentiful, and they're only an Internet search or trip to your local art gallery away. Wall art or small statuary pieces can be a great way to incorporate any color in a subtle yet strong way.

Countertops and flooring can also feature purple in your bathroom design. Some forms of stone and marble can be dyed to your specifications to carry the purple theme, or you can opt for artificial surfaces in hues of purple. Floors can be created from purple tile in a wide range of materials, and wood floors can be painted purple as well.
