Tired of white or monochrome bathroom? Inject some personality and life into it with some colours. You could start small by just changing out your fittings or go all out with multi-coloured tiles and brightly painted walls. Here are some ideas to get you started.

#1 Add pink hue for a feminine allure

The millennial pink trend doesn’t seem to be going away and is very much celebrated in this bathroom. Here, a playful exploration of the hue has been reimagined as an unexpectedly artful statement. Whimsical wallpaper and textured elements like mosaic and scallop tiles, beaded vanity timber and fluted glass work together to tie the space for a one-of-a-kind look.

#2 Experiment with colour blocking

This bathroom is a reflection of the couple’s outgoing and fun-loving identity. Plastered with yellow mosaic walls, green subway tiles, turquoise frames and mint green walls, the uplifting palette makes time in the bathroom a lively affair.

#3 Pair bright accent with deeper shades

The colour scheme of this master bathroom gets a lot bolder in contrast to the rest of the condominium apartment. Here, brick-like tiles adorn the walls of the master bath, bathing it in the auspicious colour of crimson. Black and white accents inject contrast further, making the tiles pop. The light wood cabinetry, on the other hand, lends warmth while keeping the space airy.

#4 Create contrast with just two hues

It’s possible to create a colourful effect in a space using only two colours in varying shades. While the classic blue vanity immediately catches the eye, it’s the striking pairing of blue and white subway tiles that creates a strong colour contrast. Spanish-patterned floor tiles simultaneously play up the visual drama here.

#5 Go full on polychromatic

This kaleidoscopic treat is prove that several vivid colours can converge beautifully. Pink, orange, green and blue appear on the brightly painted ceiling, door and vanity as well as on the tinted shower enclosure, and floor and wall tiles. With so many colours present in one space, the bathroom still looks serene and relaxing. The trick is to keep surfaces devoid of clutter.

#6 Achieve glamour with metallics

Nothing screams luxury quite like gold. The glass mosaic tile in this bathroom has an iridescent golden sheen that instantly elevates an otherwise cookie-cutter bathroom. Everything stays the same; the WC and washbasin are as ordinary as they get. And yet, the bathroom looks polished and grown-up with just the addition of metallic tiles.

#7 Create a pleasing ombre effect

This guest bathroom details balance elegance and whimsy with its appealing colour palette. A rain of tiles featuring graphic shapes sprinkles down the walls and then concentrate onto the floor. The ombre or waterfall effect give the illusion of a taller ceiling as the ceiling, walls and floors appear to be a homogeneous surface. Not to mention, the bright pop of blue fittings is an unusual albeit fun choice.
