With sunnier days on the way, it’s time to update your bathroom. A hint of colour will bring a unique statement to your bathroom while still looking fresh and clean. Here are our top ways to add personality to your next bathroom design.

Wall: Paint, Tiles & Features

One of the simplest and cost efficent ways to add colour to your bathroom is painting the walls with a fresh coat. Your first step is to choose the colour you want to use to achieve your stylish design and then build your room around that pallete.

Tiles used in a minimalistic way can leave a great impression on your bathroom. Instead of covering your whole space with patterned tiles try incorporating tiles sparingly. This could be on a splashback or an accent wall in your shower.


For something a bit more daring, go for an attention grabbing feautre wall. For the best result, choose a wall that has a focal point (usually the wall first seen when walking into a bathroom, the wall with the vanity or bath).

Adding blues to your bathroom can make your space feel inviting and cosy when paired with natural light. Choose to use it as a feature colour or the main contributor. Lighter blues are perfect for making the bathroom feel welcoming, clean and bright. Alternatively, darker blues and navys are perfect for giving a cosy feeling. Go for a darker blue to give your bathroom a luxe impression.

A great way to achieve a beautiful bathroom is through a stunning vanity. One of the easiest adjustments you can make to your vanity is by adding colour to the top of the cabinet. It will be a stand out! Consider keeping the top neutral when pairing it with your cabinet’s statement colour or vise versa.

For countertops, there are several interesting colours and materials to choose from that will make your vanity pop. Investing in a marble or stone top with unique texture can take your bathroom from the ordinary to extraordinary!
