When considering redecorating your home, it’s a good idea to do some research on colour combinations before choosing a new design scheme for your bathroom. This will ensure that you don’t end up living with a room full of clashing colours or uncomplimentary tones. We’ve investigated this year’s top interior design shades in order to come up with some colour combinations to create a harmonious home and a relaxing bathroom environment so read on to find out more.
Which Colour Combinations Are On Trend For Bathroom Decoration?
Putty and Moss
Two of the most natural shades in the colour spectrum, these shades coordinate exceptionally well and create a relaxing spa-like atmosphere in the bathroom. These complimentary colours bring the outside in with a combination of shades that are regularly found together in the garden and, as such, they look great with natural materials including wood, wicker and stone. Moss and putty is a classy combination regularly found in heritage properties which therefore makes a decor look expensive and furniture more substantial. These neutral shades are great if you don’t want to make a big statement with colour in the bathroom but are more impressive than standard magnolia. These neutral tones will also tie in well with the white ceramic of most bathroom suites on the market today.
Marsala, Pink and Blue
As Pantone’s Colour of the Year was the warm dusky burgundy shade ‘Marsala’, we’ve looked into other colours that will coordinate well with this popular purple so that you can use it in your decorating projects this year. Pastel pink and baby blue are ideal colour combinations as they allow Marsala to take the limelight in a room without clashing or looking out of place. These complimentary colours bring freshness into any room and will reflect light around the space, ensuring that the deep dark warm tones of Marsala don’t become oppressive. Alternatively, navy blue is another great combination for Marsala as it is equally rich and together the two colours will result in a room that feels cosy, calming and warm – ideal for encouraging you to relax in the bathroom!
Mustard and Grey
Grey continues to be a key colour in interior design and the addition of mustard in a colour scheme brings it right up to date. It’s a strong, masculine colour scheme and the juxtaposition of cold and warm tones creates a cosy, comfortable atmosphere. If you’ve already gone for popular grey in previous years, simply painting one wall of the room in a mustard yellow shade will make the room warmer and it’s a low-cost way to redesign your bathroom without undergoing a complete redecoration. This feature wall can also help to create a focal point in your bathroom on which to place an item such as a stunning bath or grand basin. Again this colour combination occurs in nature – think sandy beaches and sea-washed stones – so the two tones are guaranteed to sit well together in your bathroom to create a tranquil feeling.
These are just a few suggestions of popular colour combinations that will bring your bathroom on trend. If you aren't brave enough to add strong colours to the walls of your bathroom there are two other popular ways to bring a splash of colour to the room - many people opt for a feature wall or surround using coloured tiles to create a focal point for the room. Alternatively the fabulous range of coloured bathroom furniture now available can create a similar effect. Whatever you choose to do you will love the impact the right colours have in creating the perfect bathroom space for you.
