The final selection of your bathroom's color palette will depend not just on the color of your tub or the tone of your tile, but also on the overall look you want to achieve. A bathroom that incorporates white marble, white porcelain and pale wood will have an entirely different look with soft green walls than with walls of metallic blue. Ask yourself: Do I want my bathroom to be relaxing or energizing? Trendy or timeless? Whatever mood you're after, the process of choosing a color will feel less overwhelming if you take it step by step. "First," says Joan Osburn, of Osburn Design in San Francisco, "pick all the colors that you like, no holds barred. Then narrow them down to two or three options. Look at them in different lights and at different times of day.
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.
