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.
Black and white, this classic color combination works well for a color scheme for any style of bathroom – from the very traditional to the very contemporary (and everywhere in between and aside). Let's just take a minute to appreciate the lovely wiry chandelier in the background here, shall we? Warmed up grey-blue and white, one way to warm up your lighter bathroom color scheme is to incorporate warm contrasting shades into the space – blue and orange are complementary colors, so this antique brass or bronzed mirror frame and firey-hued flora really bring the bathroom to life. Charcoal grey and white, modern and sexy, this color combination adds an almost romantic vibe to the bathroom. Letting your fixtures (sink, tub, shower, and toilet) serve as the white component of the color scheme enhances the minimalism of a contemporary space and contrasts beautifully against a moody hue.
Bathroom furniture is an integral part of any bathroom, and has to stand an incredible amount of wear and tear, water splashes and clouds of steam. So, whether you're totally renovating your bathroom or sprucing it up with new furniture, it's important to ensure that the bathroom furniture you get will both suit your needs and stand the test of time. That's why we've asked bathroom owners to rate not only the bathroom brand they bought their suite from (toilet, sink and bath) but their bathroom furniture too. Below, you can find out what customers though of B&Q, Bathstore and Homebase bathroom furniture when pitched against online bathroom suppliers and independents. he majority of people we surveyed (55%) bought their bathroom furniture from or through an independent company/DIY store or tradesman (ie a plumber or builder). But of those who bought their furniture from a well-known brand, most went to Bathstore, followed by B&Q and Homebase.
