Bathroom designs are usually more challenging for homeowners to visualise. To most people, the bathroom is perceived as a less significant place in their house, and they pay less attention to its interior design. However, choosing the perfect colour schemes for your bathroom can make a whole lot of difference to your experience (as well as your guests’).
Let’s jump straight into our top 10 picks of colour schemes for bathrooms!
For people who prefer the minimalist and clean look, cream and white are good colour schemes to keep your palette neutral. The sleekness and purity of the colours can not only make your bathroom look bright, but also fresh and clean. If you like this scheme, you can consider using wooden-framed mirrors as well to add more depth and colour.

Whether it’s dark or light, gray as a colour can reflect a refined, sophisticated taste. If you go with this colour scheme, you can play around with various textures of shades in the same colour as well. Gray is also good at keeping potentially dirtier, wetter areas clean as compared to lighter colours. With gray tones, you can consider using gold fixtures and accents for better contrast.
