We’ve all heard the saying: less is more. But what about when it comes to colour? If you're looking for bathroom design inspiration then look no further than the glitzy bathroom suites found in hotel rooms. The use of colour is often minimal and this is based around the idea that a tiny bit of colour can actually be a very powerful design tool.


Over recent years there has been the temptation by some to inject a lot of colour into bathroom, the popularity of bold feature walls can't be denied, but sometimes there is another way to use colour in a bathroom. If your bathroom is open and spacious, you can get away with using more colour. If the bathroom is small, bolder colours or large areas in a solid colour can make it appear even smaller and more cramped. For that large bathroom, try using a statement colour on your walls, but keep all your appliances in a plain single colour.


The white fixtures will contrast the bright colours, being easy on the eye but very stylish. The contrasting black and white have a minimalistic and very stylish feeling that makes the room look much more expensive, its also a very popular colour scheme at the moment. Many of these types of rooms can hide personality though, so to brighten them up a little, try installing some colourful accessories. Just make sure that the accessories are all in complementary colours to avoid your once stylish bathroom looking overly cluttered
