More ideas and helpful tips on developing bathroom colour schemes

Bathroom colour schemes palette coordination

Before making a decision on any of the bathroom colour schemes, consider the colour palette already used in the rest of your home. Bathroom colour schemes should harmonise with other colours and finishes in the home – or it should echo, emphasise or contrast with accents used elsewhere in the home. For example, lime green in the bathroom might look very modern and refreshing in a home where base colours such as grey, and accents such as orange or turquoise are used – but could look quite ghastly in a home full of peach or apricot tones. It can take great skill to successfully combine bold colours in home decor so if in doubt, go for warm or cool neutrals in tiling and fixed finishes.

Hottest bathroom colour schemes for 2016

You just can’t go wrong choosing either all-white or neutral bathroom colour schemes. However, many renovators love to use the latest fashionable accent colours in bathroom colour schemes. What’s hot for 2015? According to examples shown of Dulux Colour Award Winners for 2015, here are some of this year’s most on-trend colour combinations: royal blue (especially combined with a lighter and or flatter shade of blue, such as duck-egg blue); pure red (with charcoal grey, or black and white); mid-green teamed with mint green, bright yellow and white; monochromatic greys blended with mushroom; midnight blue with white and taupe; cool jade green with pale blue accentuating dark red accents.

Easy ways to update bathroom colour schemes

One of the easiest ways to change bathroom colour schemes is with the Elite range of bathroom vanities, exclusive to WHO. Drawer facings can be changed in a matter of seconds. If bathroom tiles are dated or mismatched, these can be sprayed over with another colour. Bathroom walls that are only partly tiled would allow for the remaining wall sections to be painted in a different accent colour, or perhaps white, or the same colour as the ceiling or tiles for a more spacious look. Changing towels is the easiest way to update colours in the bathroom. Today’s hottest colour trends, such as combining royal blue with duck-egg blue, allow plenty of creative scope for combining base colours and accents.
