Colours and materials
Harmonious design concepts can work wonders, and choosing the right colours and textures to suit your bathroom & personality is crucial.
A few tips:
- In general, light shades give the illusion of space and make small bathrooms look bigger. Dark colours bring walls and ceilings closer and make large bathrooms look smaller.
- Various materials can liven up a bathroom. But be careful, wood and natural stone also have differing shades that must work together.
- Colour combinations only look harmonious if they follow the same values. Bathroom furniture in warm taupe and a floor in cold grey, for instance, will always jar.
- Complementary colours and in-between shades such as blue-green create a cosy atmosphere, especially in combination with authentic-looking materials and plants which make us feel connected to nature.
