Does your bathroom have that dull feel to it? A lack of color could be the problem. Plain, neglected white walls seems to be a common theme with almost every bathroom we see these days. White walls have been around since the victorian era as a way to promote cleanliness, however, times have changed and fashion has stepped in. There are other colors that still allow you to see the dirt if you choose and there are plenty of cleaning options to keep your bathroom up to the highest standards. The easiest way to combat the dull bathroom syndrome, “DBS” as we call it, is to add a little color to your washroom walls.
One way to add a splash of color to your bathroom is by accenting only one wall. Using this simple tactic you can easily rejuvenate your bathroom without over doing the color or spending a ton of money redoing your whole bathroom. If you choose to only highlight one wall, make it a solid color, it will keep the bathroom simple and elegant.

If you want to refrain from painting all together, consider just replacing the fixtures in the bathroom. Lighter colors such as green and yellow tend to be revitalizing and easy to spot dirt and grime. Also remember, fixtures work best if they match. As shown in both the photos above and below, fixtures that are solid colors and match can really make the bathroom seem modern.
If you want to dive all in, why not paint the whole bathroom? Lighter colors tend to be rejuvenating, but as you can see in the photo above, the contrast between the dark walls and all white fixtures make the bathroom pop and give the bathroom a very clean and modern feel.
Don’t feel like painting your whole bathroom? No worries, small accents in cubbies or around the edge of the ceiling are great places to draw your guest’s eyes. If you don’t want to use paint, look at the tiles around the shower or on the floor. Tiles are a great way to add simple square colors to you washroom space.
