For those with their fingers on the pulse of what’s hot and what’s not, it won’t have escaped their notice that the age of the clinical white bathroom is over. While many colours are certainly on-trend, pink is having its moment in the style spotlight.
Tiles are once again having their moment too. Gone are the white subway tiles, and patterned, colourful tiles made out of concrete or porcelain are creating statement splashbacks in bathrooms everywhere.
Unless you’re already planning a renovation, opting for a pink bathroom doesn’t have to be an expensive overhaul. It can be achieved with ease in several ways, utilising your existing bathroom furniture and fittings. In fact against a blush backdrop, white fittings really stand out.
Paint is the simplest way to introduce pink into the bathroom, and most paint brands are already prepared for the pink palette trend. There is a beautiful spectrum of grown-up pinks ranging from the palest calamine to those with earthy red pigments from Farrow & Ball, Little Greene, Earthborn, Annie Sloan and Benjamin Moore, to name just a few.
Tadelact – or polished plaster – is another way to bring a beautiful earthy pink pigment into your bathroom or shower area. There are professional firms who can apply it for you and ensure it’s waterproof.
For larger projects, the scope is even wider, with a wonderful array of pink tiles on the market. This gives the opportunity to incorporate two trends at the same time. There are chevron shapes in gorgeous shades of pink.
Rather than tile an entire wall or floor, if you’re just after a splash of pink, think about a tiled splashback next to basin or bath – or in a shower room.
