Changing the color in a room is a great way to change the entire feeling of the space. It is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to redecorate a room. There are lots of ways to alter your bathroom from installing new fixtures to changing the shower door. You might even decide to just fix a few problems and complete a shower door repair or improve the plumbing. However, you might also want to jazz things up more and really give the room a new look. The great news is since the room is small it is usually not too expensive to make really bold changes. You should begin with a plan and determine which colors will work best for the space. Use a color wheel and figure out what seems harmonious in the space. You need to feel happy and comfortable, and like any space, the bathroom should be welcoming for everyone in your home.
Those going for a bold look should choose a high contract color scheme. This means you are going for colors on the opposite side of the color wheel. This will create a vibrant feeling in the bathroom and the space will have high impact. Colors such as yellow and navy are an example of a high contract scheme. The colors are not always bright, but they certainly can be. The important thing is to have two very different colors working together.
If you prefer something a bit more subtle, consider a more monochromatic scheme. This means choosing colors that are closer together on the wheel. You might opt for violet and blue or green and blue. Some people believe this is more relaxing, but it does not have to be. For instance, red and orange are both very vibrant colors even though they are right next to each other on the wheel.
Next determine if you want a warm or cool feeling in the bathroom. A lot of people like bathrooms to feel clean and cool. They use colors like gray and blue, along with cool textures like tiles and metals to keep the space feeling clean. While this is a great idea, it might not be perfect for everyone. Those who live in a cold environment or a place that has cold winters, you might prefer a warmer toned bathroom. Imagine getting up on a bitter cold, dark morning and trying to get ready in a room that feels cold and sparse. It will not be much fun. In this case, consider warm woods in deep hues of brown and colors like deep reds, burgundy, and orange. These colors will create a warm space on the coldest day.
Finally, consider your personal style. If you are more of a subtle person and you have decorated with neutrals throughout your home, do not go overboard in the bathroom. It is a small space and ideal for taking risks, but do not force yourself to be someone you are not. If you prefer subtle hues, use pops of color on a base of subtle, calm colors.
