Awesome Color Palette Ideas for Bathroom Remodeling

Awesome Color Palette Ideas for Bathroom Remodeling

The powder room serves an important, but ultimately mundane function. However, it does not have to look mundane. Since the only people that would normally use the powder room are houseguests, it is an excellent opportunity for you to wow them and make a personal design statement. Here are some awesome color palettes you may want to think about when you embark on a bathroom remodeling project.

Black and gold

Black bathrooms and gold bathrooms both look stunning but putting these two colors in one room results in an explosive combination. Black provides a perfect foil for gold accents, so black tile backsplashes flanked by brilliant yellow tiles go very well gold-streaked black granite or marble vanity tops. Add black-shaded sconces, chrome fixtures, a large round mirror, and a few smaller ones, and you have one high-impact powder room.

The sea and sand

A small bathroom calls for lighter colors, so consider Mediterranean-style blue and white tiles on a white background and sand-colored floor tiles. Add in a sunburst mirror and you have a complete picture of a nice day by the sea. Let your imagination run away with you when adding details for your by-the-sea powder room.

Fancy flight

Wallpaper is not particularly trendy, but there are exceptions to the rule. The flamboyant pink of flamingo wallpaper strikes a chord of fun, making any bathroom look fantastical and appealing. Counteract the flaunting image with a solid white stone vanity top, plain fixtures and mirrors, and you have a fan favorite.

In the navy

If you have a larger powder room, you might want to think about going a little darker and elegant with navy blue walls. Continue the look of luxury with a classy chandelier, mosaic floor tiles in lighter shades of blue, white marble vanity, gold fixtures, and gilt-edged mirror. It is sure to give your guests a sense of refinement.

Au naturel

Wooded floors are not normally a good idea in bathrooms, but it is an excellent one for a powder room. Go for the natural look with recycled wood floors and granite stone wall tiles for the back-to-nature theme. Install a low-flush toilet to make your powder room even greener.



While one color may not seem to be anything startling in the bathroom, it does depend on the color you choose, and the accents that go with it. Choose a vibrant hue, such as lavender or sunshine yellow, and go to town with it. Replace the vanity top with granite in a matching hue, and add pewter or brass fixtures to give it depth.

Big and bold

Mosaic tiles can display an interesting pattern on the walls. Use a white background to bring these patterns into sharp relief, and go big and bold with it. Try a damask pattern, or a Moroccan design, and add some unconventional accent pieces to make it more interesting.

Black on white

You can start with a standard white powder room and give it new life by putting in black and white mosaic tiles for the backsplash and putting in a floating marble vanity. Add in a beveled edged mirror and stainless steel fixtures for an edgy, modern look.

That 70s look

Feeling a little nostalgic for the good old days? Consider bringing back the 70s by using the color palettes of the decade. Earth tones were hip back then, and it can be hip today. Think harvest gold, beige, earthy brown, avocado, rust, or mustard yellow in solid and patterns for the walls, the floor, or in your accents, and you are definitely on the right track. Add some distinctive accents such as colored toilet or toilet seat for a groovy vibe.


Why not make the most of your bathroom remodeling dollar and go all out on a theme? Let your personality shine through and still keep it functional. These color palette ideas are sure to make your plain, old powder room a conversation piece on your next dinner party.
