Inject all your wonderful energy and personality into your small bathroom with bright pops of pink with plenty pf texture. 

“Choose eye-catching accessories such as your best towels, rugs, or shower curtains to add a playful touch to the space,” suggests Nina Lichtenstein, principal designer and founder of Nina’s Home Design.

She recommends combining these accents with neutral backgrounds (Lick's White 07 Paint is illuminating and has nothing but white in its undertones) to let the pink elements truly shine.

2. Bring in retro with pink tiles

Channel gorgeous and glamorous mid-century charm by incorporating pink tiles into your bathroom design. 

“Opt for retro-inspired geometric patterns or classic subway tiles in shades of pink for a vintage look,” Nina explains.

Be sure to use these selectively on walls, floors, or as accent features to infuse your small bathroom with nostalgic appeal ('newstalgia' is one of the hottest interior design trends for the year, FYI) without overwhelming the space.

3. Choose a wall-mounted sink

Paying attention to practical features is just as important as bringing in decorative ones. For example, it’s worth being mindful of small bathroom sink ideas.

“Integrating multi-functional furniture can significantly enhance the utility and aesthetic appeal of a small bathroom,” says Nick Chatzigeorgakis, design expert and CEO of Intrabuild.

“For instance, a pink wall-mounted vanity can free up floor space while providing ample small bathroom storage,” he adds.

You can enhance these even further by adding under-cabinet lighting. These Helplex Puck Lights from Amazon are dimmable, can work on a timer, and can even turn pink, adding even more to the dreamy aesthetic.

4. Bring in gold touches

Elevate your small pink bathroom with chic gold accents to make your bathroom feel regal and refined. 

Nina says, “Introduce gold fixtures, mirrors, or lighting fixtures to complement the pink palette and create a luxurious ambiance. The combination of pink and gold adds warmth and sophistication to your small bathroom.”

If you’re going to choose anything, we recommend grabbing a beautiful mirror (the Regina Andrew Candice Mirror from Saks can be spot-cleaned and is a substantial size) and placing it on the opposite wall to a window, in order to make your small bathroom look more spacious.

5. Paint your walls

A coat of one of the best paint colors for small bathrooms can transform your bathroom, which is where grabbing a tin of pink comes in.

“One trend we’ve successfully incorporated involves using lighter shades like pink to not only brighten the space but also to make it feel larger and more inviting,” Nick says.

“When choosing paint, I recommend high-quality, moisture-resistant paint designed for bathrooms, as it helps prevent mold and mildew,” he adds.

Nick’s favorite is Benjamin Moore’s Pink Bliss, as this can complement small spaces without overwhelming them. He recommends grabbing this in Benjamin Moore's Aura Bath & Spa (all Benjamin Moore paints come in this type) because it’s specifically formulated for high-moisture areas.

6. Hang up wallpaper

One of the most dramatic ways to make a statement in a pink small bathroom is by hanging up pink-themed wallpaper featuring whimsical patterns or botanical motifs. 

“Choose designs that reflect your personality, from floral prints to abstract geometrics,” suggests Nina.

Apply wallpaper to a single accent wall or the entire bathroom to introduce personality and charm. 

We also recommend looking for ones that are water-resistant, such as the art-deco style Willa Arlo Interiors Middlet Roll from Wayfair.

7. Add marvelous marble

You can make your small bathroom look luxe and lush by pairing up pink accents with elegant matching marble finishes. 

Nina says, “Install a pink vanity or countertop with marble veining to add a bit of sophistication to your small bathroom.”

She suggests combining this with mirrors and brass fixtures (the Goldenwarm Brushed Brass Cabinet Pulls from Walmart are made with zinc alloy, giving them a sturdy and smooth finish) to achieve a timeless and refined aesthetic.

Whether you prefer a subtle style or an all-out glam look, pink small bathroom ideas are chic choices for for creating a stylish and inviting space. 

“Experiment with different shades, textures, and design elements to personalize your bathroom,” Nina finishes by saying.

If you’d rather go for a shade that’s still playful but is brighter, green small bathroom ideas may speak to you better.
