Bathed in Color to Get White Right from the Toilet

There are plenty of gorgeous, vibrant bathrooms on , but let us concentrate on white bathrooms this week. White is a popular option for bathrooms because we associate the colour with purity and cleanliness. But most find all-white spaces stark, cold and boring. The secret to working with whitened would be to pay attention to the materials used — specifically to their texture and sheen. You also have chances to play up interesting accessories in a white area, because the hue is a terrific sterile canvas. I suggest putting some wood components or hot neutral tones to counteract coolness, also.

Continue on for more tips to creating a light and inviting white toilet, and examples of whitened done correctly.

A minimalist white toilet can easily veer toward institutional and cold. Have a hint from this magnificent bathroom by adding lots of warm wood via the lavatory cabinet or the flooring. It will ground the space and give it a homey and inviting feel.

If you have concerns about installing hardwood flooring in a wet area, have a look at some of the wood-like flooring tiles now available.

The counter tops and tile in this lovely modern bathroom have nice patterns that include visual interest in a space with a very limited color palette. Because warm whites were utilized, the toilet doesn’t feel cold or austere, despite all the white.

If you opt for an all-white bathroom, pay attention to the details, since they can make the difference between dull and sublime.

Bright, bold colour is an easy way to add drama. However, you might also add oomph through abundant textures and materials. I like the interplay of the handsome wood-clad wall and the tasteful wall and flooring tiles in this toilet. The mix is very chic.

This bathroom’s pure white walls and interesting ceiling layout have an elegant artwork gallery vibe. In case you have unusual architectural components that you would like to take centre stage, a palette of white and light neutrals will help play up them for optimum impact.

If you like white bathrooms but need something more minimalist and more modern, inject classic elements to the area. This delightful bathroom might have a simple color palette, however its claw-foot tub, pedestal sinks, oversize styled mirror and retro fixtures ooze charm.
