Changes You Can Make To Bring Colour To Your Bathroom

If your bathroom feels a bit bland and sterile, there are some really easy things you can do to inject some colour into your décor. There’s often lots of white tiles and white porcelain left, right and centre, and whilst it might seem a little overwhelming, it is actually incredibly easy to work with this kind of décor.

These easy tips and ideas will have you falling back into love with your bathroom in no time!

Towels, Bathmats & Shower Curtains

Possibly the easiest thing you can do is get your hands on some new, colourful towels and a matching bathmat. This really works wonders. Likewise, changing your shower curtain from white to a fresh colour really brightens up the room as it is quite a large block of colour.

The added benefit of keeping the room neutral but using towels to add colour is that you can change the colour every week if you wish, letting you change the room to suit your tastes.


Adding a soap dish or dispenser in your chosen colour is another easy way to breathe a new lease of life into your bathroom. Pair with a toothbrush holder or perhaps a small plant pot for a plant that like damp, humid conditions. Including these small items can really lift a room just by hinting at a colour theme.

These little nuances in your room will add flourishes of colour that lets you tie in your décor with items such as towels or shower curtains.

A New Window Blind

Your window shouldn’t be neglected when it comes trying to brighten up your window and now blinds companies can provide custom blinds just for your bathroom, so that you don’t have to worry about the blinds getting wet. Not only can you bring some fresh colour to your bathroom with a blind, but they also provide functional benefits. Firstly, blinds such as venetian blinds, give you privacy but you can also control how much light enters the room. 

Due to the fact that windows take up a large area in the room, you can have some real fun choosing a fresh and zany new colour to brighten up your bathroom and then even match up other aspects of your bathroom to the colour/design of the blinds for a nice theme.

Improve the Lighting

Whilst looking for ways to brighten up your bathroom, take a moment to look up at the lights. They may be old or dusty and in need of some TLC or replacing entirely. Fitting brighter bulbs will brighten up your room and even help to change the feel of the room itself. You may be able to get more or position the bulbs to light up other areas of the room to eliminate shadows.

Bigger Mirror

Mirrors are a great way to bounce light around a room and make it feel bigger and brighter than it actually is. If you haven’t got one, get one. If you have one but it’s a little on the small side, replace it with a bigger mirror. Consider picking a mirror with LED lights that can really brighten up a room and also assist with your morning ablutions.
