With Christmas just around the corner you’ve taken the leap and installed a new bath in your bathroom. Your visitors are going to love it and you don’t have to be embarrassed as they bathe in an old and very worn bath.
Often baths just don’t blend in with your bathroom design. Maybe you have lots of light oak around your bathroom, as I do in mine. My bathroom has oak doors, an oak vanity and oak shelves and while a white bath will look good in my bathroom, I wanted to give it that final touch.
You don’t have to just accept the bath you get you can add bath panels to give it that final touch. Bath panels come in a selection of colours and sizes to fit your bath with ease and the bonus is that I found a light oak, which just enhanced my bathroom space, finishing it off perfectly.
Many bathrooms still benefit from white due to their compact size. A smaller bathroom will always benefit from very light colours to make the bathroom feel more spacious. If you feel it looks too clinical in all white, add brightly coloured towels or a bold coloured blind to give it that splash of colour and take the emphasis away from the white.
As you get to the larger bathrooms you can experiment, go for something unique such as purple or green or if you prefer black. Many bathrooms look fantastic with a black and white colour scheme, but don’t overdo the black.
Even the most spacious bathroom can begin to look small with too much black. Choose black bath panels and a black bathroom cupboard and keep the rest white, this will work beautifully with a black and white tile on the floor.
It’s important that whatever colour bath panels you choose they don’t stand out, your bath panels should blend in with your overall bathroom design. If you are unsure rather choose the colour you have used for all your other bathroom products, such as your basin and toilet.
Make a Statement
You may have a bathroom that is completely white with chrome taps and radiators. These bathrooms can sometimes look bland and if you are lucky enough to have a spacious bathroom you can make a great bathroom statement by choosing a different colour bath panel that can give your bathroom a “wow” factor.
