We Answer Wednesday - Colour in my all-White Bathroom

"We live in a new home and we were able to pick all of our interior finishes.  We both love a white bathroom - it is so clean but our master bathroom is completely white and although we love the white it's just too white! What can we do to add some colour to the bathroom without an expensive renovation?"

White is a great 'colour' for a bathroom - it's clean, it's fresh and it's timeless! But you are right too much of anything isn't good.  Any room in one tone starts to look and feel a little one dimensional over time but have no fear, we are here to help!

Even though the bathroom is a small space, you do have a lot of opportunity to add colour, texture and personality to your bathroom.

1 - Shower Curtain - pattern, colour and maybe even texture.  To keep it simple, use the shower curtain as your inspiration or jumping off point for the other elements like the linens, paint etc...Be sure to have a liner so your shower curtain is protected from the water in the shower

2 - Lovely linens - towels and a bath mat can add colour, pattern and texture. The texture of the linens adds some softness to the bathroom (which is already full of hard and smooth textures) and try mixing some colour and pattern with your towels.

Black + Yellow + White. Love this cute little bath with pops of yellow, glass enclosure shower and fully tiled walls:

3 - Framed art - look for some wall space to hang some colourful or calming art.  Photography is also a great way to add some personality to the bathroom. Find art that adds to the mood you want in the space.  there is no wrong answer and no price tag...go with what works!

Very nice bathroom remodel with creative use of of the upper window:

4 - Unique lighting - lighting is a great way to add some personality.  Overhead, vanity, sconces - bathroom lighting doesn't have to be boring.  It can add drama, glamour, elegance or even a funky vibe to your bathroom.  There are so many options for lighting and it can really enhance the look of your space - not matter what room it is!

Bathroom - Beautiful mosaic tile carpet with a back splash wrapped around the graceful tub.  More than adequate storage with wall sconces & a graceful chandelier hung in front of an arched window.  Total elegance!:

5 - "Custom" mirror - replace your builder grade basic with something framed - there are many options - this automatically and (easily) adds a custom look and feel to the bathroom.  Double sink, add 2 matching mirrors and matching vanity lighting - a very upscale look (this is also a great upgrade if you are considering selling your home).  We love this image because it mixes the framed 'custom' mirror with bold wallpaper and these sconces.  such an elevated and upscale powder room

We love this dramatic bathroom remodel.  Transform your space with new tiles, a decorative mirror, and unique lighting.:

6 - Display space - small floating shelves over the toilet or maybe a small corner on the counter top or maybe even around your tub (it depends on the layout of your bathroom and the amount of space you have).  Try adding some plant or flowers, candles and vases are also a nice touch.  We love using a small tray to group your display items together.

for my bathroom counter:

7 - Touches of wood - a few wood accents can really break up the wood and add an organic spa feel to the space. Think small accessories, wood frames mirrors, bathroom stool even wicker baskets for toiletries

8 - Paint!  adding paint colour (or wallpaper) to the walls will definitely change up the look of the bathroom and give it instant personality. Be sure to think about how you want the bathroom to feel and let that steer you towards the paint.  Something calm should have a soft and soothing tone but it you want drama opt for depth.  Because the base is white you have so many possibilties

Fresh, clean and neat...LOVE!:

9 - Get Creative - try using an unexpected piece in the bathroom like a stool or side table, these are great by the bathtub and it really adds some personality, too

A Country Farmhouse Blog: Upstairs Master Bath. The blog is about a couple's renovation of an old farmhouse. Love the plant stand.:

The great news about having an all white bathroom is that you truly have a blank canvas and you can add any accent you like.  Wood and other organic textures with calm tones can give your bathroom a beachy or spa feel; black and a metallic accent like gold can give the room a luxe or glam feel; adding aqua or even a soft pink gives the bathroom a retro look....the possibilities are endless!
