Bathrooms can pose a challenge to a lover of home design – to most of us on a budget, they're an expensive proposition to overhaul, and it can be difficult to justify a remodel if everything's functioning. But how to decorate the room? Choosing the right bathroom color scheme can make all the difference in how much you love your bathroom…and the good news is, you CAN learn to love your bathroom again (or for the first time?). Below are lots of ideas for bathroom color schemes for almost any shape, size, and style of bathroom. While it's hard for anyone to go wrong in pairing a beautiful color with white as a bathroom color scheme (plenty of examples below), there are lots of other options out there, too. We hope you're inspired enough that, perhaps with just a coat of paint and a few accessories, you can change the entire space into a space you love. Or, at least, don't hate.
The Pantone "color palettes" that are released each year can give you good ideas for bathroom color, "and I love them," says Cy. "Next year they'll come out with a whole new set and those will be out." Instead, says Cy, "choose what you like." But he's got a few caveats. "Peach looks like a bad '80s hotel room," he says. "We're not over it enough to laugh at it yet." The light in the bathroom should also influence your decision. "Really dark colors can be fabulous, but you have to make sure the bathroom gets enough natural light, or put in some other lighting, if you want to use them. Otherwise, the effect is just dark, and you need to be able to see to shave and put on makeup." The idea of looking at yourself in the mirror with these colors framing you brings up another issue. "Even when it's just extra color, you shouldn't put anything in your bathroom that will make you look ghastly in the morning, like lime green — a mistake I've made before — and yellow, unless it's a real warm shade." "More than anything," says Cy, "remember that it's your house. The color you choose should express who you are -- unless it's peach.
Luckily, says Cy, there are dozens of ways you can add color without ripping out tile floors or walls, installing new tubs, sinks or toilets. And they come right back out of the bathroom if you need to move them to another room or another place. "There's nothing wrong with a colorful bath rug, but why stop there?" says LaDonna Pare, a franchise owner for Interiors by Decorating Den in the Bowling Green, Ky. area. LaDonna and Cy share these ideas for adding quick — and easy to change — color to the bathroom: Daring Decoupage,cy and his partner moved into a 1907 home in Minneapolis, housing a 1970s bath, all dark brown and mustard and Mediterranean plastic, with walls of floral Masonite, he remembers. The two were working so hard on so many other rooms, Cy did a quick-change in this one, turning to collage artist Matisse for inspiration.
