The proper use of red can make your bathroom go from dull to stunning in an instant. Here’s how!

Are you tired of using the same old dull colours in bathrooms? If yes, we have just the right bathroom design ideas for you!

Although they are uncommon, red bathroom designs can look absolutely stunning and create a lasting impression on visitors.

Now, when you think of a red bathroom, you might think it will look too flashy and drop the idea. But rest assured that if designed correctly and with expertise, a little red in your bathroom can totally elevate its look. Whether you use red bathroom tiles or wall art, or decor — this one colour can bring up the style quotient of your bathroom while still maintaining its elegance and simplicity.

Without further ado, let’s explore some fantastic red bathroom ideas that will undoubtedly enhance your appreciation for this colour, if not compel you to revamp your bathroom!

The Interplay Of Black, White And Red

Red sits very well with a combination of black and white, and this bathroom design idea is proof of the same.

Our designers have used a combination of black and grey and white and grey mosaic tiles for most of the washroom. But in the shower unit, they broke away from the monochrome scheme and used red bathroom tiles instead. The result is a classy, elegant-looking bathroom.

This colour combination is a classic, but our designers here have managed to give a unique touch to it. It looks smart and radiates simplicity, but at the same time, is not dull or mundane.

A soft brown wooden cabinet, a table-top washbasin, some basic steel hardware, and bathroom accessories complete the bathroom’s look.

Go All Out With A Red Wallpaper

If you’re a red lover, this bathroom design idea is for you.

Using red bathroom tiles can turn out to be a little on the expensive side, but that shouldn’t stop you from displaying your love for red and going all out. Instead of using red tiles, you can use red wallpaper in your bathroom. It works like a charm and is cost-effective too.

A red wallpaper is a bold choice, but it can totally elevate the look of your bathroom if done right. In this image, the red wallpaper completely changes the look of this small washroom. Moreover, the print is such that it instantly makes the room look royal.

When opting for a red wallpaper, you can try to keep the other elements of the bathroom on the subtler side. For instance, you can opt for a white commode and washbasin and simple, silver-coloured bathroom fittings. This way, the red wallpaper will be the highlight of your bathroom, and the whole thing will look pleasant on the eyes.

If you have a big bathroom, you can fill the space up with some furniture, like this cushioned chair shown here. Now, if you choose colours like black, white and grey in your bathroom, some red furniture can be the perfect choice to add a dash of colour.

This bathroom design features white, grey and black marble work. The textured tiles add an exciting element to the washroom, but the sprinkled red further brings up the washroom’s look.

Even if you don’t have a bathroom as big as this one, that’s not a problem. You can still use red accessories — like a red soap dispenser, tray, toothbrush holder, etc. This can make your bathroom look rich and elegant without it looking too loud.
