Colourful bathrooms

Contemporary bathrooms can act as a blank canvas for an injection of colour. Create a wow-factor scheme with statement shades to bring your bathroom up to date

Paint effects

‘Use natural breaks, such as corners, alcoves, shelving, dado or picture rails, to start and stop different colour choices,’ says Crown Paints’ colour consultant, Judy Smith. ‘If you don’t have a picture or dado rail, try painting up to that height in one colour, mask with tape, then paint above in another.’

Light and shade

Shutters are a great solution for bathrooms, allowing daylight in and privacy when needed. If you have a neutral scheme, try using a bold colour at the window; add vibrant accessories and your space will be transformed.

Bold contrast

Team bright furniture pieces with a dark background for dramatic style. Fitted designs, such as this Vogue range in Lime Silk, not only make good use of space, but are also ideal for hiding pipework for a streamlined finish. This collection by Mereway has flat slab doors and comes in a range of contrasting colours and finishes with different handle options.

Colourful tiling

Vibrant tiles look stunning when teamed with a white floor and understated furniture. Keep the rest of your scheme simple and pared-back for an up-to-date style that allows your chosen colour to shine through.
