Choosing the Right Color Scheme for Your Bathroom

Did you know that the average American spends one hour in the bathroom every day? That totals up to roughly two weeks per year. Since you spend so much time in the bathroom, it’s a good idea to make your space as pleasant as possible. The colors you use to decorate your bathroom can affect your mood as well as your appearance in the mirror, so choose wisely. As you decide on your bathroom’s color scheme, remember that you can use decorative tile for the backsplash or in the shower to add even more interest to your space. Read on to learn how to choose a color scheme for your bathroom.


White is one of the most common colors in bathroom decorating, and for good reason. A white bathroom is bright, which helps you feel invigorated in the morning, and conveys an air of cleanliness and freshness. Instead of leaving your bathroom stark white, think about colors you can use to make your space more welcoming. A dark, rich blue accent wall makes a great backdrop for decorative tile pieces as well as lighter accessories such as towel hooks. If you put on makeup in the bathroom, you may want to stay away from certain shades of gray and yellow as these can affect your complexion in the mirror.


Just because your bathroom is decorated with a neutral color scheme doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Neutral bathrooms have a certain sophistication to them, and you can add pops of color using decorative tile mosaics or bold towels hanging on the wall. You can create a feeling of calmness by using a few different neutral colors together, and adding patterns to flooring or walls can make the bathroom more visually interesting. A neutral bathroom is serene without being stark, and allows you freedom when choosing your decorations and linens because more colors will match.
