Bathroom remodeling can transform a boring bathroom into a spa paradise. While many homeowners will put a lot of thought into the small details, they often overlook the importance of choosing the right colour for the space. Most bathrooms are also lacking in natural sources of light which makes colour choices even more important. Merit Kitchen and Bath has years of experience in bathroom design as a premier contractor. We have used our experience to put together a simple guide to help your bathroom look amazing after your renovation.
Don’t Be Afraid to Go Natural
Natural, subtle colours like robin’s egg blue, seafoam green, light violet, and beige offer a more natural aesthetic. If your bathroom fixtures have hard edges, natural tones can soften them and balance the appearance of the room.
Stick With Two or Three Colors
Only using one shade in your bathroom will be monotones, and using too many colours will be too busy. When using multiple colours in a room, limit yourself to 2 or 3. There are also a few things to keep in mind when using multiple colours. With each colour, try to only use it three times during your decor in the room. You can mix neutral shades in a 70/30 ratio if you prefer not to use bold colours. When all your choices are neutral, add texture to increase the character of the room.
Choose Complementary Shades
Colours that are located across from each other on the colour wheel will complement each other when used in a room. Choose combinations that fit your personality and your home aesthetic for the best results. If you are not sure about your choices, chose a neutral colour such as beige and add a couple of accent colours for pop.
Make Use of Dark Shades
Dark rich colours like navy blue or coffee brown look stunning with bright contrasting trim. Dark colours will make the space feel more modern, and the light touches will draw the eye. Contemporary finishes that have clean lines pair well with dark colours.
Pull Ideas From Other Rooms
Although every room in your home is a standalone area, it makes sense to have an overall cohesive theme. Look to other rooms in your house when thinking about colour patterns and decor for your bathroom. This will ensure that your entire house has a unified appearance.
Balance Your Bathroom
Using colourful accessories and pieces of furniture is the best way to introduce a pop of cooler in the bathroom. If the rest of the bathroom is neutral, it balances the bold areas for a creative and welcoming final look.
