Different shades of green for a peaceful and calm bathroom

A more simple and more “natural” way of living is one of the top current trends, which has a significant impact on home design as well, and green is back as one of the 2024 bathroom colour trends. To evoke the peaceful feeling of nature, you can opt for olive, sage, mint or water green. Duck green, which is darker, also creates a soothing and elegant effect.

Different shades of blue for a soothing bathroom

The ultimate colour when it comes to calm and inner peace, blue is a timeless choice for a bathroom colour, also strongly associated with water. From deeper and richer blues to light and soft blue hues, you cannot possibly go wrong.

Among other things, you can take your inspiration from the Sherwin Williams colour of the year, Upward SW 6239, which is a light and soothing shade of blue that pairs perfectly well with white and natural wood tones.

A little bit darker but just as peaceful, the Blue Nova CC-860 colour of the year by Benjamin Moore reminds us of the depth and richness of sea beds. This elegant colour might spark in you the desire to travel and will definitely catch your eye when incorporated into your bathroom design.

Light pink and pastel colours for a bit of sweetness

Among the trendy colours for 2024 bathrooms, take a chance and opt for a colour that evokes sweetness and innocence. Peach, light pink or purple with pink undertones, are all delicate colours that are sure to cater to your need for tranquility and comfort. Pastel colours are incredibly inviting and soothing, and pair perfectly well with trendy metallic materials like copper and brass.

Light and neutral colours for a refined touch

Minimalism is a true philosophy, which certainly has its rightful place in a bathroom. Light and neutral tones are perfect for this spirit of refinement, where an uncluttered space will leave you feeling at ease and rested, in body, mind and spirit. Moreover, there is little risk of neutral tones becoming outdated after a few years. When it comes to colour choices, this is definitely a safe bet. 

When it comes to a minimalist design, your door selection can have a significant impact over your final design. Our partner, Dörr Industries, is the ultimate cabinet door manufacturer in Quebec.

Earth Tones

While water is a colour that brings up feelings of calm and peace, earth tones evoke a feeling of stability and balance. Renew your contact with nature in a warm environment with colours that will remind you of sand, earth and clay.

The neutral Satin colour recommended by Sico will brighten up your space while also offering good versatility. Browns, beiges and terracotta create a rich and welcoming atmosphere. You can explore different possibilities by creating you bathroom plan online.

A bathroom with wooden accents for more warmth

Wood is a timeless choice that brings warmth to any room. It also helps balance colder shades and pairs well with any other colour. Create a peaceful relationship with nature with this noble and versatile material.

Black, another timeless choice

For a bolder look, black brings a modern and sophisticated touch and can be used to create more striking contrasts. You can try Behr’s colour of the year, cracked pepper, for a bathroom with a very distinct look. Black will allow you to let your creativity shine, as it pairs well with several different colours and textures.

Mixing colours

By pairing different colours together, possibilities become endless. You can create a beautiful seascape with blue and green, rely on modern contrasts with black and white, or play around with several different neutral hues for a peaceful atmosphere.

Classic combinations like blue and white will always be in fashion, but you can also pair blue with earth tones for a design that mimics a natural landscape.
