5 Quick Ways to Add Color to Your Bath Room

I love a neutral color scheme in a bath, but I also REALLY LOVE to see a bathroom with pops of color. A colorful space is great refresher when you're getting up in the morning. My opinion is that colorful spaces make you happier. What better place to put you in a happier mood than in your bathroom?

Here's simple ways to bring color in your bathroom:

Change your Towels & Bathrugs

Your bath towels and bathrugs are a very inexpensive way to bring in color. The best part is that you can find so many different kinds and styles at most stores. My favorite place to buy them from are Target and Bed, Bath, & Beyond, because you get a variety of colors & styles at many different price points.

Install a Colorful Shower Curtain

Your shower curtain is very inexpensive way to bring in color. I would suggest getting two different ones that can be changed out every couple of weeks or so. It would be a fun way to switch it up for guests, or for yourself and your household. Just make sure that they both match the color scheme of the bathroom. (Unless you want to change up the entire color scheme every couple of weeks)

Paint your Wall

Paint may definitely be the biggest way to make an impact in a space. I love the dark gray in the below picture, but I usually prefer a brighter color in a bath, especially in a bathroom used often.

Add Colorful Artwork

I love to see colorful artwork in a bathroom, especially a small space (it just seems so much cooler with art)! I think bathrooms are a great way to bring in bold art pieces, especially if they're colorful. Guests love to get surprised by a fun piece of artwork!

Plants are a great way to bring in more color. Other than the green from any leaves on your plants, they're an unlimited amount of plants you could consider for your bathroom that could bring in pops of color.
