The bathroom is the place where most of us kickstart our mornings and wind down at night – so it’s important to create a space that not only looks beautiful but also makes you feel good.
When deciding on what colours to use in your bathroom, you should first consider how you want to feel in your space. Do you want to create a sanctuary where you can relax at the end of a long day, or a place that you can emerge from each morning feeling energised and raring to go?
Here, we explore how a splash of colour in your bathroom can completely transform your mood:
According to colour psychology, pink evokes feelings of nurture, love and femininity – perfect for introducing some romance into your space. The colour is both soothing and aesthetically pleasing, making it a great choice for creating a tranquil and relaxing space.
Pink is also thought to boost creativity - so be playful with pink and consider painting your Heritage cast iron bath in a statement raspberry shade.
If you’re looking to make a statement with your bathroom design but find bright colours intimidating to work with, dark shades of grey are a great alternative and exude sleek sophistication.
When grey or black is used on an accent wall, consider breaking it up with wall panelling This makes the perfect backdrop for a statement centrepiece like our matte black freestanding Osterley bath.
Traditionally a calm and relaxing shade, green is often described by colour consultants as being balanced, harmonious and refreshing.
Because of its connotations with the natural world, green is also the perfect colour for bringing the outdoors in – making it great for city homes with very little surrounding greenery.
Vibrant yellow is unsurprisingly connected with feelings of joy, optimism, and energy. Emulating the warmth of sunlight, a splash of yellow will evoke positivity in your home all year round.
Whether you opt for a darker mustard shade or a splash of sherbet lemon, introducing yellow into your bathroom colour palette will instantly brighten up the space and enhance your mood.
If you’re not sure how to incorporate this colour into your bathroom, why not start by introducing some yellow accessories? Or, for fans of bold design, go all out with a statement yellow wallpaper.
White and neutral tones never go out of style, and this classic bathroom colour palette is both versatile and mood-enhancing.
