Bathed in Color
February 4, 2019
There is a reason so many baths in high-end restaurants have reddish walls — it is a flattering colour for all skin tones. The proprietor might be expecting that looking good in the bathroom mirror means you are going to feel good about frequenting the institution. But red can be a tricky colour to pull off in a small space that gets little mild, as is true in many residential baths. Warm colors are to advance, so a red toilet will feel smaller and more shut in than the usual neutral- or cooler-hued space. But additionally, it will have a warm, comfy and calming feel. For people who favor contemporary minimalist distances, an injection of bold red is a good method to protect against a space from feeling cold and sterile.
Listed below are a handful of my beloved vibrant red paint colors and a selection of ravishing and inspiring red baths.

You’ve got some options in regards to red. There is obviously true red, but you can also select a cooler red — one that has a blue in it, veering toward burgundy or fuchsia. You can also veer toward warmer reds with a peppy orange-red.
Be ready to apply several coats of paint to find complete coverage. Consider using a tinted primer to begin with to maximize coverage.

The magnificent glass mosaic tiles really dress this up particular bathroom. The tiled wall seems to be lit from within, as a result of its smart recessed lighting at the back of the medicine cabinet. If you’d like a dash of red in your toilet but still want the room to feel full of light and open, be sure you have loads of good lighting.

Reddish-orange walls look crisp and modern when paired with colors of white, gray and black.
Mix crimson orange with timber and oil-rubbed-bronze finishes and accents for a warm, comfy vibe.
I am a big fan of tile always search for options to it for clients who do not like the look of grout lines nor the maintenance needed to keep them clean and pristine. This bold red bathroom is clad in a commercial-grade epoxy paint, for watertight surfaces that are simple to clean.
I love this elegant bathroom’s bright red glass tiled walls and ceiling. Consider your grout colour when selecting tile to get a space. I often try to match the grout colour to the tile to lessen the appearance of grout lines. This is a smart grout colour selection — the wall sconces will get lost against of a grid of white grout lines.
If you’re a lover of red but do not wish to totally cover your toilet in it, add a couple red accents instead. This is a cheap and low-commitment approach to inject bold colour into your home.
I have fallen hard for vintage claw-foot bathtubs in fun hues. This enchanting red toile wall covering is another fantastic way to bring colour into the space.

This dazzling bathroom features a stunning accent wall of red and orange mosaic tiles. I like the contrast of the warm wall color and timber bathroom cabinet against the cool stainless steel sink and toilet accessories.
