Putting Color Back in the BathroomFor so long now, all I can remember is white bathroom fixtures. Toilet, bath, shower, vanity, basin. They are all white available in many different shapes and sizes, designs and styles but predominantly white. I was recently scrolling through Unsplash, where I get inspirational photos and I found these images of bathroom fittings and walls that were a little bit different so I though I would share them.
I love pink! Do you think you could live with a pink toilet, cistern and pink walls? Well I think they should have had a pink toilet seat. The white just doesn't cut the mustard.
A pink bath and pink wall tiles in these two images. Great action photo.
We only see a small part of the bath and wall here, can you imagine the what the whole bathroom looks like?
Green, now this color was still found a little when I was young but I haven't seen it for a long time. I could live with this and it is used here with traditional lever faucets, so it has heritage design, probably in a bathroom of a 1950's home.
White - we have all seen this type of toilet set but have we seen the walls before? If you have a look in the image below, they are actually a collection of colorful sequins and glitter type of finish. I have never seen it before, so I challenge you to let me know if you have and where to get it. It's is quite unique.
A very different way to add color to a bathroom.
Lilac, soft and subtle, calm and relaxing. I like this use of color in a bath and wall tiles. I could use a bathroom with this color and it isn't too over powering like the pink we saw in the first images.
Very intense blue tiles shower - I love it as it shows a willingness to add color and personality t a bathroom.
Black tiles and white fixtures - I was actually looking for black fixtures as they seem to be the trend right now. Black baths, black basins, black toilets. But no images to be found yet, so I have settled for the black walls instead. A lot a lighting required in this bathroom.
Potent peach. Now I am not afraid to admit when I don't know something, and I don't know what this room is used for? Not sure what the blue hose is but for the purpose of color and bathrooms - I surprisingly find the peach color quite fun.
I just had to show you the toilet and bidet fixtures - look at the floral design on them, a first for me. I love them, not sure where I will ever see them again.
Keep smiling - these are all just design color ideas, presented to make you think.
To summarize, why stick to safe white in your bathroom, think outside the square and add a little color. I hope these images have given you some inspirational ideas, or not!! It's always good in design to know what we don't like and rule that out, saves a lot of time in your design process.
Oh, you are probably wondering about this image? Well. I have been up since 5am because I couldn't sleep, so when I saw this image it made me laugh, and my editorial judgement is not so good at this time of the morning. I hope it makes you laugh too. Feel free to add your comments, I'd love to get your thoughts on this color topic.
