4 ways to embrace colour in your bathroom

After a year spending more time at home than ever before, having a bright and inspiring space has never been more important. But colour needn’t be limited to a feature wall or statement cushion – the bathroom is a great place to have fun with colour too. Here’s the essential Ripples guide to injecting colour into your bathroom.

1. Banish boring basins - Our collection of concrete basins have swiftly became Instagram favourites and it’s easy to see why. Boasting beautifully textured surfaces in everything from vertical flutes to horizontal waves, these basins are available in 28 irresistible colours, ranging from deep blue to blush pink. Prepared to go bolder still? Our exclusive collaboration with designer Sam Lander features concrete basins made using centrifugal force. The aptly named ‘Whirligig’ basins are handcrafted by Sam using a range of coloured concretes. Choose one of Sam’s colour concoctions or pick your own for a truly bespoke basin.

2. Choose a bright bath - The statement piece within any master bathroom, the bath is a great place to add a big splash of colour. We can colour match with any RAL shade on a number of our baths, so you can have a bespoke bath in your favourite hue. “Never be afraid to go bold with your choices”, says designer Mark. “Go as bold as you dare and we can always tone down other aspects to make the scheme work as a whole.”

3. Add style with your tiles - Tiles are one of the easiest and most cost effective ways of injecting colour into your bathroom. There are almost endless styles to choose from, across a huge range of shapes, patterns and colours, from metro to mosaic and everything in between. Pink works particularly well as a base colour for tiles as it complements an array of other tones. Clay pink tiles have become especially popular in the last few years as the hue pairs well with monochrome brassware which has also grown in popularity.


4. Pick a radical radiator - Gone are the days where radiators are either white or chrome – you can now choose from a kaleidoscope of colours. Our expert designers can give you advice on which colours work well together and can even give you radiator samples to take home. It’s always helpful to look at colour samples in the space you plan to use them in; colours often look different in different lights so it’s handy to create a moodboard of all your samples and look at it within your bathroom space.
