In the bathroom we need to feel as good as if we were in a cocoon. To create this warm welcoming atmosphere you need great colors. Here are a few bathroom color ideas to get you started, but don’t limit yourself, colors are powerful even if their effect is the object of controversy.
Here are some bathroom color ideas by personality type:
For those who have a hard time to get going in the morning:
Red is strong and peppy color. If you are sluggish in the morning opt for red, if the bathroom is a place to relax it is also a place to reenergize yourself.
For people who have a need of evasion:
Blue is the color by excellence for evasion, it is the color of the infinite sky, the sea… yes vacation. Blue comes in so many hues from a dark night blue to lapis lazuli blue, turquoise, pastel or navy blue, or even indigo for a warmer tone. It can be associated with yellow or orange.
For people who prefer a calm, voluptuous atmophere:
A minimalist approach with natural colors will encourage relaxation. Bathroom colors like egg shell, antique white, taupe or grey are ideal for a soothing and peaceful atmosphere. A return to basic that facilitates introspection.
Strong colors are to be preferred in bathrooms where space is not a problem, for bathrooms in small spaces you should avoid these colors as they tend to draw the space onto itself. Choose white, a lasting bastion of bathrooms everywhere, there a whole array of whites to choose from and is always ideal in the bathroom.
It is often through the use of accessories that colors find the impetus to animate the bathroom. Choose accessories with strong colors and bold designs, and have fun. Accessories today mean more than the obligatory toothbrush holder or soap dish. You can find amusing toilet paper roll holders, or bathtub stoppers like this one, or a dental floss dispenser. Bathroom ideas and colors are all around and designers are having fun just coming up with new ways to trigger your own creativity with one or two of their products as the starting point.
I just love the Alessi collections. Here are a few fun ways to add a splash of color to any bathrooms.

The Umbra collection of bath accessories is another (perhaps more mature) one that has strong elegant design with an organic form and bold colors. They are made of practically unbreakable melamine, a material that is also super easy to clean. I can only include a few items as examples, you can see the whole colors collection by choosing a color below.

Finally here is a photo gallery of bathroom color ideas to help you find the color that will best fit your style. Note that some of the images feature the same bathroom with a different color idea. Don’t limit yourself and explore, live with the paint you have selected and if you need to adjust in a few months so be it. Paint is an inexpensive way to redo most any room, especially small bathrooms as long as you have an item you really like as the central element around which to coordinate the colors.
