If someone asks you the colour of your bathroom you will probably tell them either the colour of your walls or the colour of your bath or basin.
But whilst they are the dominant colours of your bathroom there are other colours in there complementing or competing with the prevailing colours.
No doubt you have vanity units, bathroom cabinets, radiators and towels that are all adding colour to your bathroom.
It is easy to forget that everything in your room adds to its overall effect.
It is quite easy then to subtly change the look of your bathroom by changing the colour of one of these other elements.
Or you can introduce a new element such as a bathroom mirror or new cabinet to add a new dimension to your bathroom.
A room can start to look a bit staid but if something different is thrown in it can refresh your room.
It will suddenly make your room seem a bit more dynamic. It is amazing how the introduction of something new can reinvigorate your bathroom.
For instance you could introduce an oak vanity unit to your bathroom and suddenly it will be transformed. The lightness of the oak will work with most colours and suddenly you don’t just have a great new vanity unit you have also regenerated your bathroom.
The design manuals say that you should have a minimum of three colours in a room and a maximum of six.
You don’t, of course, have to follow the rules and you can use as many colours as you like.
As a word of warning I would say that the bathroom is a place of sanctuary and you don’t really want the colours in your bathroom fighting with each other.
It is far better if they are friends. This will make your bathroom a more relaxing and rewarding place to be.
Towels, flannels, sponges and even your rubber duck adds to the colour palate of your bathroom.
So like a painter you can see that by changing just one colour in your bathroom will affect the way the other colours are received by the eye.
All that is needed to refresh a room is just that extra touch of colour.
