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.
Typically when we start a bathroom renovation we have one tile that we dream of including in our design. Sometimes it is a really special or unique accent tile and sometimes it is as simple as knowing that you want white subway tile. Either way, take that dream tile and use it as the starting point for the other tile you will choose for your bathroom design. Taking your first (must have) choice as a starting point, use it to make the decisions for the other tiles you will include in your design. If your must have is a really unique color or pattern and is going to be the focal point of your design, pull more subtle colors from it to use in your accent tiles. If however your first choice is really plain (like a white subway tile) you may want to add an element of interest with a colorful accent tile or even a smaller scale white penny tile to change it up and add interest.
Although many designers like to test paint right on the walls, color consultant Paulette Diamond, ASID, vice president of the International Association of Color Consultants - North America, suggests buying 8" x 10" flat canvas boards from an art supply store and painting one in each of the colors you are considering. "This system allows you to move the paint color samples around the room easily," she says, "while eliminating the mess and confusion of having several different colors painted on the wall." Finally, once you are pretty certain you have found the best color for your bathroom, "Just go for it," Joan says. "Remember, it's only paint. If you aren't happy with it you can change it very easily.
