Colorful Bathroom Ideas


A colorful bathroom adds personality to your space. It can even help you start your day off with a smile. Colorful rooms can be modern or work in a kid's bathroom. Decorating with color can be inexpensive but still makes a big impact.

Colorful Tile

  • Tile is one of the more permanent ways to add color to a bathroom. Mosaic tiles often have several hues of the same color. Try a metallic finish for an updated version of mosaic tile. For a monochromatic space such as an all-blue bathroom, lay tile on the diagonal for added interest. If you are working with inexpensive or plain tile, mix and match several colors together. Create a checkerboard effect in the shower with green and white tile for a vintage inspired space.

    Colorful bathrooms can still be elegant. If you have a neutral color palette, try Moroccan star tiles that add a graphic punch in color combinations like blue, tan or black.

Art Inspired Bathroom

  • Base your bathroom around your favorite piece of art or turn your space into a work of art all its own. Paint can transform a bathroom inexpensively. Artwork uses vivid color palettes and combines hues in ways that you might not have thought of before. Continue the art onto the wall by using the same color palette or painting a grid inspired by the art piece directly on the wall. Paint a bathroom with stripes to bring in several colors. Vary the width and color of each stripe to create a focal wall.

    Paint can update the bathroom vanity. If you have flat-front cabinets, use the area as a canvas. Paint a single graphic flower on the doors in bright orange or pink that will pop against white walls. For a kid's bathroom, paint each door a different color like magenta, green, orange and blue. Continue the eclectic theme by adding several different colorful drawer pulls to each drawer.


  • Liven up the flooring in a neutral bathroom. Make a statement with blue tile or try a terra-cotta tile for a Spanish theme that adds color to the bathroom. Install linoleum in a funky pink or orange for a retro flair. Linoleum comes in many different patterns and colors and is one of the least expensive flooring options. This means that you can change the flooring out when you are ready for a new color palette. It's also water resistant and very durable for bathrooms.
