Color coordination in your bathroom

Color coordination in your bathroom

When you are planning your bathroom, there are so many things to be taken into consideration. What kind of bathroom suite would be best? Should you choose a tub or a shower? What kind of bathroom tiles should you purchase? And the list may continue. There are so many models to choose from and the decision is overwhelming. One of the most common problems that occur is choosing colour palette. Coordinating the colours can be challenging, but, if you follow our advice, you shouldn’t encounter any problems.


1. Begin with the floor and work your way up. First, choose a base colour for your floors. To coordinate, you will need to use the same colour on the countertop as well. For example, if you chose a light brown, the same colour should be found in both the tiles and countertop, but they don’t need to have an identical look. You can use, for instance, granite for the the top and porcelain for the floors, each having their own insertions and particularities. However, make sure the insertions are alike. If you have warm colour accents on the floor, your need warm colours on the top as well. 2. Make sure all your fixtures have the same colour. If you go for white, stick with white. 3. Choose an accent colour (complementary to the base colour). In our example, that can be a dark-cherry red. Use it for borders, wall tiles, decorative tiles and, if you like, in furniture.. Keep in mind, the complementary colour doesn’t have to be bolder or darker. Tip: If you have a small space, use the same type of tiles on both your floors and walls. This will create the illusion of a larger room. Are you afraid of using bold colours? No problem, whites will always be in fashion.
