The bathroom is our temple for care and cleaning, the space where we are going to start the day. And its decoration has been transformed to give it back the main place it deserves, since before it had always been relegated to the background. What do these changes translate into? In which we can already find full- color bathrooms, where the most diverse chosen pieces are stained in the most diverse shades. It can be the coatings, the countertop, the furniture and even the toilets.
From the traditional bathroom with finishes in white or, sometimes, in blue colors that refer us to water, we went on to proposals much richer in nuances. Discover the world of possibilities that a full-color bathroom offers and give your bathroom a new look.
Tiles in combination with wallpaper
Combining tiles in the water area as a wainscoting and wallpaper in the upper area is a success, creating an interesting contrast. The interior designer responsible for designing this bathroom, Noé Prades, says that “the bathroom is a space that allows me to be more creative, where I like to surprise, create the ‘wow effect’. Color well used with textures and materials is a good element to surprise and create a different environment. This is a room where you can take risks, a theatrical space where it’s worth using color and having fun”. Specifically, it uses pearl gray tiles in a high-gloss finish, by Porcelanosa, and a wallpaper in coral tones with bird motifs.
Likewise, textiles, such as towels, curtains or blinds, can also be a good occasion to bring a note of color to the space.
A green bathroom… in every way!
This bathroom environment stands out for the beautiful freestanding bathtub stained in gray but, above all, for the green that floods the walls and countertops, a tone that gives freshness and calm. The quartz slabs belong to Silestone’s Sunlit Days collection, neutral in carbon emissions, a sustainable option that we see in the Posidonia Green color but that we can also find in clay brown, a gray chromatic or a very elegant blue.
A powerful red
Sometimes we insist on cold colors for the bathroom, such as whites and blues, when the warm ranges give the environment a pleasant feeling of warmth. For example, Estudio Muher decides to coordinate the wallpaper in this bathroom with the tiles in an intense red, which captures all eyes. The paper is the Ikencho model by Jannelli & Volpi, with vegetal decoration in black.
The warmth of wood and grain
In this generously sized bathroom designed by Estudio María Santos, color enters mainly through these elements: the floor and the shower screen with organic lines in wood and the wall and floor covering in the water area, in a stone natural from Naturamia with showy veining.
In bathrooms, wood is often painted but, as we can see, it also looks spectacular, perceiving its color, its veins and its knots.
Color in the toilets?
The toilet, the bidet and the sink have a star color that is present in most interior designs: white (usually in a gloss finish). Well, the porcelain group firm Noken breaks schemes and presents these toilets in an elegant matte gray, thus multiplying the aesthetic options for the bathroom.
The color possibilities of the Essence C compact collection are very varied and include, for example, various shades of greens and blues, canary yellow or black.
Patricia Bustos is a lover of color and she shows it in this space, inspired by the aesthetics of the 60s and 70s and invaded by blue and pink. “Pink means a lot to me –he tells us–, and it has a magic that can turn any serious environment into playfulness, modernize the most classic piece or refresh the most sober and boring environment”. Pastel blue, also very present, is responsible for reinforcing a sweet and delicate look.
Pop style furniture
The Italian firm Antonio Lupi presents a series of furniture that, in the Bemade collection, is sometimes tinted in very cheerful and vivid colors, as in the image proposal that combines red, yellow and white, all framed in black to enhance the change. color. Contrasts produce a vital and dynamic effect.
If you do not dare to use a piece of furniture that mixes several colors in the basin, as we saw before, in the market you will find countless proposals in a single color, such as this wardrobe in a vital yellow with black handles, the same color as the taps.
By the way, the trend of the moment is that the profiles of the shower screens are selected in black, as happens in this bathroom renovated by FFWD arquitectes. You will be able to fill the space with sophistication.
A striking electric blue
Can I add color if I have an open sink? Although they are usually accompanied by boxes and baskets for interior organization in fairly neutral colors, such as white, sand or gray, yes, if you opt for ones that offer a note of color to the decoration. In this proposal by Thehallstudio, the boxes are a vibrant electric blue that repeats the color of the pavement , decorated with hypnotizing geometric motifs.
Plants for a very natural bathroom
In this bright bathroom designed by interior designer Raúl Martins, gray is present in practically the entire space, such as the furniture, the floor and the wonderful wallpaper. To break with the prevailing sobriety, a lush indoor plant is placed. The plants provide a fantastic natural touch and in bright bathrooms you can introduce varieties such as sansevieria, poto or aloe vera, which adapt well to the humidity conditions of the bathroom.
We have seen examples of bathrooms in which color is introduced in small or large doses, but here it is present in absolutely any corner: furniture. curtains, walls, floors … This project is signed by Carlos Tomás, from EstudioReciente, who tells about it that: “it is a very peculiar space. It is located where the kitchen originally was. small dimensions, a special composition could be made, away from the usual distribution of elements in a bathroom. The custom-made washbasin becomes the most important element, and the toilet and the shower are separated with pink curtains”. The floor is a multicolored terrazzo. To achieve visual harmony and continuity, the same material is also used on the walls.
