The bold and the beautiful. Bright colors aren't for everyone but if you have a favorite what are you afraid of? Attention-getting tangerine orange in a powder room is sure to be a talking point and it will cheer up anyone who enters. When a shade of green is this juicy why not blanket your bathroom with it? The bank of mirrored cabinets amplifies the natural light coming into the space and there's just enough wood to prevent all that green from going into overload. Architect Scott Weston isn't shy when it comes to color. In fact Weston sees color as a powerful tool that can set a home apart. This all-blue bathroom is far from cookie-cutter. The frameless shower screen and minimalist sink allow the tiles to be the main event without competition. In the same project — an addition to an 1880s Victorian in Sydney — this bathroom delivers the same quirky twist through the use of another unexpected color.
Glamorous gray. Gray continues to be a top color of choice for new and renovated homes and opting for this color in a bathroom gives it a contemporary edge. In this updated Melbourne Australia period home a neutral palette modernizes while still staying true to its classic roots. There's something refreshingly clean about gray for a bathroom and while both black and white on floors and walls can show dirt a gray bathroom is easy to keep clean. Concrete (and concrete-look tiles) is the material of choice in ultramodern homes and extensions and bathrooms are the latest areas of the house to get the concrete treatment. The wood concrete and black palette of this bathroom continues throughout this Adelaide home. If midgray isn't your thing go for darker charcoals for a tinge of glamour and sophistication. The industrial-style light (with a yellow rather than white globe) and wood countertop add welcome warmth and moodiness to this space. You can never have too much marble in a bathroom especially when the expanse of gray is offset by metallic fixtures and a standout vanity. Marble tiles manage to be classic and contemporary at the same time a great choice for the cutting-edge addition to this home.
A monochrome bathroom can make a dramatic statement that's modern glamorous and edgy or it can create a serene and soothing space. Opt for just one little feature that breaks slightly from the theme or cover everything with your chosen color — if you dare. It certainly won't be boring. Here's how to get it right.
The man of the house. If you're outnumbered by the females in your household or you tend to take a back seat when it comes to the home could it be time to take a stand — literally as well as figuratively — and put your own stamp on the bathroom?
This sleek oval soaking tub gives the bathroom an industrial shine. Although stainless steel's durability and easy maintenance are huge pluses homeowners will also appreciate how the metal helps bathwater stay warmer longer.
Whose towel is whose. Alternatively you could employ the same strategy of demarcating sink space even without a trough basin by mounting your towel bars just under the lip of the countertop. Especially in a guest room or kid's shared bathroom this makes it easier to identify whose towel is whose compared with a catchall hook mounted somewhere on the wall.
