The majority of UK bathroom suites are white, sometimes off-white, so really any colour goes. Colour in bathrooms today tends to come more from tiling, accessories and blinds than from basins, toilets and baths. So, what colours work well?

What Colour Bathroom Should I Choose?

Deciding on the right colour choice for your bathroom is understandably important – take into account both the size and shape of your family bathroom, en-suite or cloakroom as well as personal choice before you make the decision you will live with for the next few years.

White suites are light, modern and give the smaller rooms in the house a sense of space. When it comes to accessorising white goes with everything so the choice is yours. Both wall and floor tiles provide the biggest opportunity to inject colour into a bathroom – the key decisions to make are how much of the wall do you want to cover with tiles and whether or not you want the colour scheme to complement or contrast with your sanitaryware? Bold, dark colours such as navy and racing green are currently popular. Combining black with white is timeless, incorporating matte black fittings makes it contemporary, muted colours provide a sense of serenity and heritage while pops of bright yellows or greens can completely transform your bathroom.
