Giving your bathroom a makeover is one of the most worthwhile home interior remodeling projects. However, many homeowners are not fully satisfied with the result of their makeover because they make the wrong color options. To help you avoid ending up in the same situation, we created a basic guide to picking the most suitable colors for your bathroom.
Take Your Schedule Into Account
The color of your bathroom will set the mood for the space. Bright color hues have a more energizing effect, which is great for starting the work day, while more subdued tones help create a more calming effect. Pick your color based on whether you spend more time in the bathroom in the morning or after a day’s hard work.
Consider Other Parts of the Home
Harmony is always a good thing when it comes to designing the bathroom, so pick a color that complements the rest of your home. Consider using color swatches from your recent kitchen remodeling project. If you want, you can even take color cues from your home’s exterior, such as the roof or the windows.
Use Another Color as Background
Visual unity is important in bathroom design, but you can’t just use one color in your bathroom without making it look bland. By choosing two colors – one as a background and the other for highlights – you can have a great looking bathroom while also being able to highlight certain areas in your bathroom, such as the bathtub or sink. Common background colors include neutral hues such as white, beige and gray.
Don’t Forget Lighting
The colors you use for your bathroom remodeling project can vary greatly, depending on the time of day. A bathroom illuminated by sunlight through a window looks very different during nighttime, especially if you have warm yellow lights. Make sure you pick something that you will like under various lighting conditions, or you might get caught off-guard by the result.
