How your choice of bathroom colour can influence your mood

The choice of colour scheme for a room can have a huge impact on our mood and emotions. It might seem like a superficial matter, but psychologists believe that colour really does affect the way we are feeling. As the bathroom tends to be the place where most of us begin and end our day, it’s important to set the right tone.

Here’s a look at how the most popular bathroom colour schemes of the year measure up.


Pink bathrooms are still somewhat divisive, despite a resurgence in popularity in the last few years. They can feel cute and retro, and pink is traditionally associated with warmth, joy, kindness and comfort. Not a bad way to feel as you start the day! However, the shade of pink is important. 

Soft, lighter pinks are considered to be the most elegant and charming solution for a bathroom. Some splashes of stronger dusky pinks or vivid candy pinks can add drama and interest, but beware as some people find that bright pink can make them feel agitated. 


White is a perennially popular colour for a bathroom. It is slightly less fashionable than it once was, as tastes are finally moving on from the starkly minimal aesthetic that has dominated the past couple of decades. However, it is still a great choice, especially for smaller bathrooms because it can help them to appear larger.

White is of course also associated with purity and cleanliness, so it can feel like a very natural choice for a bathroom. It is a peaceful colour, but it can also feel cold and clinical. To avoid this feeling in your bathroom, add interest with textures such as marble veining or glossy ceramic tiles. A few colourful accessories and plants can also add some personality. 


Green bathrooms are very on trend this year, especially sage and rich emerald tones. Green can help us to feel connected with nature and make us feel calm and refreshed, making it an ideal choice for a bathroom. It’s thought to be a colour that puts people at ease, which is why it is often used to decorate public places such as restaurants and stores. 

Some people also find that green helps them to feel creative and motivated, as it is associated with approval—think of the phrase ‘given the green light.’ Green bathroom tiles look stunning when set off with brushed brass or gold fittings. 


Blue is a colour traditionally associated with tranquillity and stability. It’s a traditional colour that works well for bathrooms, although some people find it cold and even associate it with melancholy moods. 

For a modern take on the blue bathroom, you could try using bolder inky tones of blue, or more muted gunmetal shades teamed with white or grey sanitary ware. On the other hand, softer sky blues can feel uplifting and inspirational.
