Bathrooms weren't traditionally very colorful spaces; historically, they didn't tend to draw much attention in the décor/color scheming way. If your bathroom is a traditional style, you might enjoy keeping the color scheme pretty neutral – creams and whites. The look is not only fresh, but it's light and bright as well. Glossy red wall tiles and red bath mats are a cheerful and bright way to add spunk to an otherwise white bathroom. The color scheme is hospital-esque, likely because it emits a clean and germ-free aesthetic. It's a hot color right now, and for good reason. Amaranth is not pink, it's not red, but it's a beautiful, rich cross between the two that is neither too frilly nor too masculine. We love the unexpected coordinating shower curtain and cabinet doors here. Fresh and unfailingly cheerful, mint and white make a lovely color scheme, particularly in tiny bathrooms where every square inch matters. An encompassing small-scale wallpaper print in the color scheme break up the solidarity of the walls and make the space feel larger. And flanking silver and white sconces add to the fresh appeal.
For smaller bathrooms with tighter quarters, sometimes a smaller multipurpose vanity or a custom vanity with open shelves can make the room feel bigger. Another way to get the most out of a smaller bathroom is to choose an open vanity without cabinets. Mounting cabinets to the wall as opposed to having them under the sink will give your eye some breathing room, create easier foot traffic and potentially keep the doorway from being blocked by cabinet doors. Once you know how you want the space to function, you need to figure out the look and feel you want your bathroom to have. Use your cabinets and vanities to drive home the design, whether modern or rustic. Floating your cabinets is ideal in small bathrooms or as a way to make your room feel more open. Use vessel sinks that sit on top of your bathroom vanity to create a more luxurious look.
I painted over the Masonite with a really good primer and then I decoupaged tissue paper in vivid colors over it — indigo blue, sunny yellow, even some silver tissue paper. It looks luminous, freckled, almost like water. Above the shower stall, I did much brighter colors and I sealed it all with a water-based polyurethane." While Cy applied his decoupage directly to the wall, his "simple French" look would work just as well applied to foam core or poster board, framed or not, and then hung on a bathroom wall for a splash of color you could change out whenever you want. "Paint the walls, or if they're mostly tile, paint the ceiling!" says Cy. "If the color doesn't work, you can paint it something else." And should you need to sell the house later, and believe the accepted wisdom that only white walls are appropriate in "For Sale" bathrooms, you can spend an afternoon painting it back. Or for just a minimal change, paint a frame and hang it on the bathroom mirror with Velcro.
