So, you’re in the process of building your dream home and are starting to think about colour schemes.

Should you go bold and bright? Pattern-crazy? Or all out stark white minimalistic? Choosing a colour palette can be daunting, least of all because you are deciding how your home is going to look for the foreseeable future.

While trends come and go, there are some ways to ensure the colour of your bathroom feels fresh, relaxing and inviting over the years.

Keep it simple

A simple colour palette is timeless. Patterning tiles adds a subtle design feature without the need for in-your-face colour and lets you have fun with stylish exposed shower plumbing.

Open-concept designs work particularly well with this trend, as the light and space work together to make a generous space feel even bigger.

Keep it neutral

Think beyond beige: woody browns, mushroom greys, fern greens, misty blues, and off-whites are the new neutrals.

Earthy tones bring the outdoors in, without the need for copious amounts of attention-hungry plants. They have the added benefit of a calming influence, so whether you’re starting your day or ending it, a neutral colour palette promotes a more serene environment.

Make a statement

On the other end of the neutral trend is bold black. Incorporating contemporary darker hues into your bathroom design creates a high-end feel, without the need for splashing your cash.

And rather than making a room feel smaller, a darker colour like matte black, forest green or navy adds depth and contrasts the brightness of white finishes.
