Amazingly colourful bathroom ideas to freshen up your home

For an easy way to add colour to your bathroom, highlight a single wall in a bright shade – such as this cool yellow in the scheme above – and team with neutral wood tones or simple white for a smart look. Pops of bright colour can change an otherwise simple and plain white bathroom. These contemporary radiators from Bisque make a bold and fresh statement. When we said ‘colourful bathroom ideas’, we meant colourful!

Consider switching up classic white sanitary-ware for something bold – and how about this black and gold toilet and bidet? Definitely not for everyone but the gold finish is fit for royalty.

Pooky‘s bathroom collection is just as cool and quirky as their other ranges. Hazel wall light in glass with swan-neck fitting in brass, £114.
It’s all about the black frames, which contrast sharply with the pastel shades of the aqua wall tiles and grey flooring. The touches of gold complement them perfectly. I’ve got such a soft spot for a tile, and this range of hexagonal tiles from Bert & May makes this bathroom scheme my favourite.

Watch The Bathroom Sessions: ways with colour and pattern

Pair wall tiles in a deep colour with patterned floor tiles for a bright and eye catching wet room. Tiles are a great way to achieve a high-end look for less, especially if you opt for porcelain. I love this luxurious scheme which feels really textured and innovative. Find more tips on buying tiles here.

Patterned tiles are still a huge trend. Choose a bold and interesting pattern that you love on the floor and pair this with simple walls to create a sanctuary with bags of personality that is still family friendly.
