Colour Schemes For A Future-Proof Bathroom

If you’re looking to redecorate your bathroom, you want to choose a colour scheme that will stand the test of time.

Bold colours and the latest trends are all well and good, but trends come and go and your bathroom could rapidly look out-dated, which won’t serve you well if you are looking to sell your house in the near future. This doesn’t mean you have to be stuck with a plain white suite though! There are colour schemes you can incorporate that will future-proof your bathroom. 

If you read our blog post on How To Use Grey In Your Bathroom you’ll know that this timeless colour scheme is a great option! This is a chic, modern colour palette that will create a sophisticated look that never goes out of style. The great thing about this colour scheme is that it works well with brighter coloured accessories, so you can add a pop of bold colour such as pink or green.

In a similar vein, a monochrome colour scheme is a classic choice for the bathroom. Black and white tiles are again a great backdrop for bold colours if you want to brighten things up with your accessories, but monochrome also works perfectly as a standalone. This is a striking combination that won’t date, so your bathroom always looks it’s best. Check out our post on Monochrome Bathroom Design for more ideas.

It might sound like an obvious choice, but a neutral colour scheme will guarantee you longevity. Warm cream and beige tones with wooden fixtures and fittings will create a welcoming environment that will stand the test of time. It’s more of a classic choice than the monochrome colour schemes and fits well with the more traditional country style home. 

Another colour that always works well for the bathroom is blue. In pale, soft shades it is reminiscent of the seaside and in bolder shades it gives a more nautical feel – both classics for the bathroom that will stand the test of time.
