Small Bathroom Color Schemes

Choosing a color scheme for any part of your home can be a daunting task. Fortunately, the bathroom is usually one of the smallest rooms in the house, and one of the easiest to decorate. Like the room in your home, the most important part about choosing a color scheme for your bathroom is to use the colors and decorations that you like, not just what is trendy or displayed in magazines. We spend a lot of time in our bathroom, so it's important for us to like what we see every time we are in the room.

Your first step in choosing a color scheme for your bathroom is to determine whether the room will show color through paint or accent decoration. If you decide to paint the walls with bold colors, like red, chances are you need to reduce the decorations a little so they don't overwhelm the room. If you use a more neutral wall color, like yarn or white, you can be a little more creative with the color of the decoration.

For bathrooms that are painted in colors other than white or cream, let the color of the wall be your point of work to choose the rest of the color scheme for the bathroom. Remember that rugs, towels, shower curtains, pictures, and other accented objects must be neutral in color, or complement the color of the walls. For example, if you have a red-accented wall in the bathroom, you want your carpet to be black or cream, or a color that matches red, like burning orange. As a general rule, there shouldn't be much else in the bathroom that exactly matches the color of a thick painted wall.

Small Bathroom Color Schemes

Bathrooms that are painted in neutral colors have a little more space in terms of choosing a color scheme. Choose carpets, towels, cup holders, paintings, and other decorations with colors that you like. Or, choose two complementary colors, such as teak and chocolate. Some splashes of color in major places can turn a bland bathroom into a beautiful space. You can also choose a beautiful shower curtain as the basis for the color scheme in the neutral bathroom and remove the color from the curtain to use as a carpet or painting displayed in the bathroom.

Whatever color scheme you choose for the bathroom, you also want to make sure that your hardware is suitable. Even though you have flexibility in metal coating that works well together (like brush nickel and silver brush), keep in mind that this type of hardware needs to look cohesive. Modern chrome faucet will look silly in the bathroom equipped with a claw-foot tub and bronze cabinet device. Because bathrooms are usually very small, it is important that each element of the room work together to create a harmonious space. Avoid mess with decorations and if possible, always follow more or less motto when dealing with bathrooms.
