With more and more bathrooms daring to ditch conventional white fittings, coloured basins have experienced a surge in popularity.
From modern, glossy tiles to eye-catching feature walls with contrasting paint jobs. These formally where the methods designers used to add a touch of colour to bathrooms. Traditionally, they turned to walls and floors. However, there are new ways in which you can incorporate a vibrant, colourful look into your bathroom.
Plain white ceramics and chrome fittings have always seemed to rule the roost – so much so that you’d be forgiven for thinking that they were compulsory!
However, in recent years we’ve seen colour being added to bathrooms in exciting new ways. The most notable of which is the bathroom sink/basin.
A distinctive and stylish way to change the mood of your space, colourful basins are now available in more colours, shapes, and sizes than ever before. Adding a well-chosen one to even the most conservative of bathrooms can provide you with an instant style boost.
So, with this in mind, we’ve put together the following guide on how one could benefit you (along with a few colourful basin recommendations of our own!).
Why opt for a colourful sink?
Whether you’re planning a complete renovation or just wanting to spruce up a tired bathroom, adding a coloured basin can provide your space with a host of advantages over a standard white one. We’ve detailed a handful of examples of what they can do for you below.
Change the Mood – Something not quite right about your bathroom? If you can’t seem to put your finger on it, give its colour scheme a rethink. Colourful sinks can serve to change the mood of your surroundings, transforming a space from one that doesn’t stimulate you at all to one that evokes exactly how you want to feel. Need an energising space for those early mornings? Try a bright and bold pink colour, such as pink or green to give you a boost. Alternatively, if you mainly use your bathroom for relaxation, opt for green and blue hues that can help to alleviate anxiety.
Synchronize Your Look – Once you’ve settled on a colourful sink, you can use its colour as the basis for a synchronised look. Choose colourful matching bathroom accessories from our extensive range, such as towels, mats and more. Be wary of overdoing it; too many corresponding colours could make your space a garish and headache-inducing nightmare! We recommend sticking to 3-5 subtly matched items that allow your coloured basin to take centre stage. If you think it’s still going to be a bit too much, go for complementary colours instead of matching ones.
Influence Your Space – The colour of such a prominent bathroom furnishing can even have an influence on how big or small your space feels. Brighter colours work well to reflect light around even the smallest of spaces to make them seem that bit bigger. Conversely, going for a darker coloured basin can make a larger bathroom seem cosier; ideal for those vast designer bathrooms that can lose that homely vibe.
