Are you a lover of colour? Is your bathroom lacking a splash of fun? If you answered yes for both, you might want to consider injecting some beautiful colourful hues into your bathroom décor?
Adding a lick of paint, or some funky wallpaper are some of the best ways we can add character to the cloakroom, en-suite or main bathroom. We have put together some amazing bathroom ideas to help inspire beautiful family-friendly interior style. It’s time to say goodbye to the neutral bathroom and welcome the new colourful bathroom era!
Let’s get started!
Start With The Walls
If you are dedicated to a colourful bathroom interior, painting the walls is one of the more cost-effective ways to update and brighten your current space.
If you’re done with the white wall, then let’s explore some of the best colour options to keep your bathroom a modern, relaxing and stylish space.
Add a Touch Of Blue
If colour is introduced into the bathroom, we typically see shades of blue. Blue has always been a colour associated with the bathroom.
It’s the perfect option if you are trying to keep a calm and relaxing atmosphere and great for evoking a tranquil space. Be careful about going OTT with the lighter tones as you will run the risk of creating a room with a cold feel.
We recommend using darker blue hues; navy blues, teal and royal blues offer a more welcoming connotation. Sticking to colour schemes is good but not always essential if your going for a truly wacky unique look.
Splashes Of Orange
Orange sounds a scary colour to paint the walls but if you shop around there plenty of gorgeous subdued orange paint.
According to very well mind, ‘orange can be a very strong and energetic colour’. If you are seeking a warm Scandinavian space, orange should be your go-to colour.

If you’re looking for a calmer colour, why not opt with green? Olive greens, lime greens and pastel greens all work well on a bathroom walls.
Pastel greens work particularly well with black fixtures, the intensity of the black against the cool green is the perfect choice for a bathroom that pops!

Paint It Pink
Like orange, pink can be a daunting colour to dedicate an entire wall to. However, if accessorized right, pink will help create an artistic, dramatic urban room. I mean, take a look at this gorgeous pink bathroom!
Coloured Bathroom Wallpaper
Many people believe that you cannot have wallpaper in the bathroom due to the amount of condensation, moisture and that the damp environment will cause the paper to peel away from the wall.
This is not true. Since we hit the 21st century, there has been specially designed wallpaper called ‘waterproof paper’ that’s great for humid, wet environments.
With this innovative wallpaper you can now have colourful walls with patterns, scenic backgrounds or geometric shapes without the fear of it peeling away.
Wallpaper can be a little overpowering. Especially if bright colours are involved.
So, we would recommend choosing a feature wall if you’re opting for a super intense paper. We love an intense patterned paper in a smaller space such as a cloakroom.
Remember, to always have your feature wall as the same wall where your basin sits. This will give your bathroom a powerful focal point.
Floral wallpaper is a brilliant way to inject plenty of colour into your bathroom. We wouldn’t recommend it for the faint hearted but if you love rich and lively interior décor then floral wallpaper could be the option for you.

If you’re looking for a calmer, more casual vibe, we would recommend a more playful wallpaper. Take this blue, fun pattern paper, the bright colour and energetic pattern keeps the basin area look fresh and stylish. Mix it with black fixtures for a really eclectic look!

If a splash of colour in your bathroom is all your after, then welcome to the bold look. Inspired by abstract art, this fresh and urban paper will give your bathroom a contemporary feel.
One of our favourite coloured bathroom looks has to be a coloured tile. Well, not just any coloured tile but a pastel coloured tile. There is something all so soothing and welcoming about the pastel colour palette.
Wall or floor tiles, pastel will help brighten up your bathroom and keep it airy, which is perfect for maintaining a healthy wellbeing.

Use pastel pinks, greens, and blues for a bright, tranquil space. What makes these colours even better is how great they look against black, brushed gold and oil rubbed bronze fixtures.
Use the bright tiles as a gorgeous feature wall or splash back area on either the basin or shower area.
Coloured Freestanding bathtub
If you’d prefer to leave the walls alone, then why not invest in a beautiful coloured freestanding bath? This will instantly brighten up your bathroom and give it a real modern glow-up.
The most popular coloured tubs are hot pinks, oranges, blues and greens. However, it does not stop there. You can now buy bathtub paint and create your own coloured tub.
Coloured Vanity Units
Diminish the shades of grey and add pops of colour with a coloured vanity unit. If you’re on the more eccentric side, then coloured vanity’s will be the perfect option. Use a traditional navy-blue unit to add a regal feel to your space.
Or if you are really creative, try and upcycle your current furniture into bold, modern and colourful bathroom pieces.
Coloured radiators sound interesting, right? Wait until you see how beautiful they can look!
Why not change your white rad for pops of bright, fun and mood boosting colours. We have all the colours of the rainbow available; red, pinks, blue, orange, green, purple and yellow hues.
Our coloured radiator collection could be installed throughout the home. Why not introduce colour into your living room with our olive green rad?
Make small changes for a brighter space with colourful accessories…
You might be thinking, painting, wallpapering, and changing furniture isn’t in your budget, would be far too time consuming and you’d much rather make small, quick vibrant changes.
One of the easiest ways to freshen up your existing décor is to swap your old white ones with plenty of funky colours, patterns and prints.

You can have so much fun choosing a bath mat for your colourful décor. Similar to towels, a bath mat can make a huge difference to the overall look of the room.
So, don’t settle for the boring greys, blacks or whites. Spice things up with animal print, hot pinks and slogan mats!
Don’t Forget About The Little Things
If you’re happy with your white bathroom but still want that colour fix, then turn your attention to the finishing touches. Soap dispensers, diffusers and picture prints are all the small details that make up a room. So, if you’re not looking to paint why not up your décor game.
Change the dull soaps/dispensers to more funkier designs.
