Bathroom Inspiration

Bathrooms are often one of the smallest rooms in the house and a space where you spend less time, giving you the chance to make a real statement if you wish. Add character with bold colours and extravagant accessories for a dramatic, cosy feel or use a lighter palette to enhance space. If you’re looking to add smaller accents of colour, paint the underside of a roll top bath or style with painted furniture such as a decorative side table or stool.

Colour

Colour affects mood wherever it is used, and bathrooms are no exception. Before selecting a colour, consider the usage of your space; family bathrooms have a different requirement to en-suites or cloakrooms frequented by visitors. Think also about the style of your bathroom and the sanitary ware, furniture and accessories to establish the overall ‘look’ you’re trying to achieve.

Modern

Team monochrome colours with bright accents for a modern twist on a classic look – black and white with accents of French Green No.187, Lolly Pop. No.275 or Pimlico No.136 will make a striking style statement.

Country

Opt for pretty pastels such as Mews Blue No.98, Beauvais No.195 or Early Lavender No.260 teamed with a soft palette of neutrals for a classic country scheme. Accessorise with floral prints or toile du jouy and a period-style roll top bath for an authentic centre-piece.

Be Bold!

Bathrooms are often one of the smallest rooms in the house and a space where you spend less time, giving you the chance to make a real statement if you wish. As you can afford to be more adventurous with colour and style, it’s easy to add character that’s a pleasure to live with.

Bold period-style colours create a wonderful jewel-like feel in small rooms. Try Burlington Arcade No.216, Mortlake Red No.290 or Eccleston Pink No.248 offset with white sanitary ware and gold accessories for a touch of grandeur or chrome for a contemporary mix.

Space

In general, light colours will give an airy, spacious feel whereas stronger colours create a cosy feel. Neutrals are always popular as they are easy to live with and have timeless appeal. But neutrals don’t have to be white! Grey tones give a contemporary feel while red toned neutrals have a warm, friendly feel.

No. 237

Alternatively, add an accent of colour with a feature wall which can also add definition to a space. Try Maritime No.236, Bloomsbury No.267, Oratory No.237 or Piccadilly No.194 – wonderful as a frame to basin and vanity areas or behind a bath.
