Be it for brand new bathroom designs or budget bathroom remodel projects, the one of the best idea to uplift the overall design is through the use of colors! As colors do have the power to create its own story hence, make sure to use it to your own advantage to create an interesting yet a practical space.

And since just splashing colors around won’t let one achieve a perfect bathroom, therefore, I am listing out the tips for choosing a bathroom color scheme along with various bathroom decor ideas that would complement each other and help in creating a well-balanced look.

KNOW THE ROLE OF LIGHT WHILE CHOOSING A COLOR SCHEME FOR BATHROOM

Did you know, light plays an important role during the color play? Yes, it does! As light has the capability to change the colors appearance dramatically during the day as well as the night time and it can manipulate the colors characteristics.

Even the artificial source of light exhibit variations in color.  For instance, the bathroom light fixtures with incandescent lamps tend to produce more red and yellow light hence appear to be “warm” in color. Therefore, I would advise choosing both the light fixtures and bathroom colors together to avoid design disasters.

HOW TO CHOOSE COLOR SCHEMES TO GET THE BEST OUT OF YOUR BATHROOM DESIGNS?

The first step towards choosing your bathroom paint is to consider how much light the bathroom receives. Secondly, consider the size of the bathroom, if the bathroom is small or with just one window opt light colors that given an open, airy feel. Whereas larger bathrooms get the privilege to have experimented with various colors.

Following these two steps would help one to decide with the bathroom color schemes. Additionally, it is even important to consider your own personal style and this you need to ask yourself if you want your bathroom to be relaxing or energizing.

No matter whatever colors you choose, this process of choosing a color in the bathroom will make you feel less overwhelming if you take it to step by step.

Swirl the color wheel as it will give you instant and easy color solutions. How about opting for purple and yellow for a bright and energetic look? These two colors on the color wheel are placed across from each other, making them complementary colors. Whereas the calm, refreshing green and blue or green and yellow are placed next to each other on the color wheel, making them analogous. So, it is quite easy to give your bathroom a  good background by following the color wheel.

COLOR WHEEL IDEAS - THE RULE OF THREE COLORS

If you want to make the color concepts more interesting, implement the use of three colors. This color concept is about using the neutral (lightest) color for 70 percent of the bathroom, the second lightest yet a rich color for 20 percent, and the boldest as an accent for the rest 10 percent.
