3 Statement Colour Schemes That Will Make Your Bathroom the Star of the Home
Over the last few years, we’ve seen the colour slowly drain out of many Perth bathroom renovations. Homeowners have increasingly erred on the side of caution, sticking to a simple white scheme. Sure, some incorporate stone or statement tapware to add a little extra interest, but it usually still feels quite… well, bland.
Given the bathroom’s “questionable” history with the use of colour, this is somewhat understandable. In fact, fixing a dated colour scheme is one of the main reasons behind many bathroom renovations in Perth. And, given how expensive a bathroom renovation can be, it’s easy to see why people prefer to play it safe.
However, there is no need to fear colour – particularly in an area like the bathroom. Colour is critical to creating atmosphere and can help make the space as serene or invigorating as you like. It can also inject personality and energy, making your bathroom even more joyful and delightful to be in.
Incorporating colour into your bathroom renovation design is a real balancing act. It needs to be on trend enough to make a statement, but classic enough to stand the test of time. Your use of colour also needs to be strong enough to be a feature but subtle enough not to overpower.
To help you with this, we wanted to share our top three bathroom colour schemes. Each of these are right on trend but will continue to look great for years to come. Best of all, they are adaptable and can be worked into any Perth bathroom renovation design.
Bathroom Renovation Inspiration #1: The Warmth of The Earth
Many design experts expect that 2021 will be all about natural neutrals. As part of this, the professionals predict that earth tones – think soft browns and stone greys – will be particularly popular. As quite a muted option, this is great for anyone that’s nervous about having too much colour in their bathroom.
Working this colour scheme into your Perth bathroom renovation couldn’t be easier. We recommend starting with a pale neutral tile and paint colour and pairing this with black tapware and dark grout. For a more designer finish, consider featuring a more complicated tile pattern – like a chevron or herringbone.
If you’re feeling a little bolder, try adding a feature tile. Sage green works very well with this colour scheme and will help reinforce the “natural” vibe.
Bathroom Renovation inspiration #2: The Cool of The Sea
According to leading trend forecaster, WGSN, one of the key colours for 2021 is A.I. Aqua. While this colour was selected for its connection to technology, we see it’s great potential as a bathroom feature colour.
Blue has long been a popular choice for bathrooms. While this is often a literal connection (water = blue), the colour is strongly associated with calmness and serenity. Blue also fits well with the aforementioned trend toward natural neutrals.
To bring the energy and depth of blue to your Perth bathroom renovation, we recommend starting with a cooler neutral. You can then build on this with brass tapware and rich timber finishes. Finally, work in the blue – we suggest a teal or midnight blue – through your cabinetry and/or feature tiling.
Bathroom Renovation Inspiration #3: The Drama of Contrast
Pantone has once again broken with tradition and picked two Colours of the Year for 2021 – Ultimate Grey and Illuminating (a vibrant yellow). While this exact colour scheme may not be for you – the combination has had mixed reviews – the concept is undeniably beautiful. And using two strikingly different colours in your Perth bathroom renovation design will create plenty of visual interest.
To help keep this look timeless, we suggest starting with a crisp white tile and sleek black tapware. This provides a clean canvas, which you can then add visual drama to with a statement floor tile. Depending on your personal taste, this could be monochromatic (to really amp up the contrast) or coloured (to add extra depth).
