Bathroom Colour Trends: Dark Walls Make for a Cosy Bathroom
Posted on 11th January 2017 at 15:23
Many people automatically choose light colours for their bathroom walls, aiming for a bright, relaxed space that feels airy and larger than it is. But there is something to be said for painting your bathroom walls a rich, dark colour or choosing darker tiles, because it can give your bathroom a very cosy feel. It doesn’t have to be the deep green so favoured by our Victorian forbears, either.
Check out current interior design trends and you’ll soon see that dark, moody colours are making a huge comeback.
Deep purples, plum and red hues, blues and especially shades of grey are used for everything from feature walls to floor tiles.
Match dark colours with sparkling white sanitaryware, gleaming chrome or brass taps and fittings, and cleverly chosen accessories and we’ll guarantee that your bathroom won’t feel claustrophobic and closed in.
Instead, you’ll be creating a room that blends a feeling of deep relaxation with touches of mystery and luxury. Somewhere warm and quiet to relax at the end of the day, somewhere calm and elegant to get your morning off to a good start.
If a new bathroom is on your to-do list this year, then why not consider something besides the cream and white, neutral and white or pale blue and white colour schemes we’re all so used to. Why not, instead, explore midnight blue, aubergine or charcoal grey as in the image above?
Chocolate brown or deep red make for a very luxurious bathroom, especially if you choose gold or copper accents and accessories and cream-coloured tiles and countertops.
And brick red and forest green can combine to create a friendly inviting look with a rustic feel.
A dark bathroom colour scheme will work equally well with traditionally styled or modern fittings, so whether you are planning a period bathroom, something ultra modern or a bathroom that every person in your family will love to spend time in, you’ll find something to suit.
Tiles and bathroom furniture with a gloss finish will help add light. As will mirrors. Large tiles and perfectly finished walls will help make your bathroom look and feel spacious.
We work with a range of both tile suppliers and bathroom manufacturers, so finding the ingredients for your dream bathroom won’t be as difficult as you might think. Bring your mood board or colour scheme and we’ll help you mix and match colours and textures until you have just the look you want.
