Bathroom Colors - Using Color Theory for Stunning Results
Bathroom colors in all the splendid varieties and combinations are an integral part of bathroom designs that work.
Your Bathroom Colors
You may want to use soothing colors and create a harmonious palette. Or, you may want to make a bold statement with deep hues or vibrant colors.
There is no specific rule about the right or wrong colors for bathrooms! We all look at colors in a subjective way. Colors are evocative and will bring out different emotions or reactions in individuals and modern bathroom design is open to interpretation.
Generally speaking though, we can give attributes to the meaning of colors:
Naturals: Earthy, gentle, relaxing
Primary colors are red, blue and yellow as contained in the inner circle. Primary colors cannot be mixed from any other color, but by mixing the primary colors, you can make up all the other colors. We'll show you how even primary colors can be used successfully in a bathroom.
Secondary colors are created by mixing two primary colors as can be seen in the second circle.
Blue + Yellow = Green
Tertiary colors are created by adding more of a primary color to a secondary color. And this is where it gets interesting when you start playing around with different hues.
Yellow-Orange through Red-Orange
Tints are produced by adding white to colors.
Shades are produced by adding black or grey to any of the colors.
When planning your bathroom colors, it is the effective use of complementary (or contrasting) colors that can add the professional touch. Complementary colors are always opposite one another on the color wheel.
