In general, most bathroom designs tend to use a pretty limited palette when it comes to colour. Light-coloured marbles dominate the field. And the bathroom wall panel colours available from different manufacturers tend to reflect this.
There are other, stronger colours available but the choice is much more restricted and bright, bold colours are almost entirely absent.
A large proportion of bathrooms are quite small with limited natural light from small windows with obscured glass. This is one of the main reasons that lighter colours are the most popular.
Choosing the right bathroom wall panel colours can help brighten up the room and keep it airy. You want as much light reflecting around the walls as possible.
Here we give some examples of wall panel colours available on the market.
Colour plays an important role in the finished look of any bathroom makeover. There are two fundamental routes you can take when embarking on your design:
- keep all colours neutral – this enables stronger colours to be added in via ancillary items (rugs, towels, blinds etc)
- choose a strong theme colour and stick with it
Option 1 is the option used by customers the most often. It allows you to change your mind in the future. And it allows you to re-imagine the room without the need to completely refurbish it. Just change the ancillary items.
Option 2 is great if you have a definite plan for how the room will look and are happy to stick with your choice of bathroom wall panels for the long term.
Grey Wall Panels
By far our most popular colour choice although there is some debate as to whether grey is a colour at all. The lack of colour works to its advantage as it means it remains very neutral. It can be enhanced by adding stronger colours into the room by way of flooring, towels, rugs, blinds etc.
Every manufacturer offers a grey marble as they as such a hit with customers. There are also tile effect and mosaic effect panels available that utilise a marble in their design .
