It’s probably not escaped your notice that pink has moved firmly out of the ‘cute and girlie’ camp and into the ‘sophisticated shade’ camp. So why not think about updating your bathroom in this hot hue?
Like any other colour in the spectrum, there are a multitude of shades to choose; from the palest calamine, powder or blush pinks to the bolder and more striking fuschia and candy colours, plus everything in between.
And fret not, if you think pink may just be a flash in the pan, and you’re not sure you will like it for the long term, there are subtle ways to introduce the shade before you fully commit.

1. Pretty paintwork
Painting your walls in pink is an inexpensive and easy way to update your bathroom, as sanitaryware, flooring and tiles needn’t be changed.
Lakeland Paints do a great selection of pinks that are Anti-mould and VOC free, meaning they’re odourless and non-toxic, as well as gorgeous. The company are still delivering too.
2. Colour clash
Even if you already have a strong colour in your bathroom, don’t let it deter you from adding another. Seen here, these beautiful electric blue tiles have been given a new lease of life with this vibrant splash of fuschia pink, creating a distinct zone for the basin area.
The wooden washstand and the white walls, shutters, bath and basin ground the scheme and keep it the just right side of calm.
3. On the panel
If you’re more sure of your colour likes and dislikes, go for a more permanent option, like this striking candy pink bath panel and vanity unit.
Otherwise opt for a surface that can be repainted at a later date. Harvey George has a wide selection of colourful vanity units.
4. Blush backdrop
This simple white Infinity Divine vanity unit from Crosswater looks super modern against the millennial pink painted wall and terrazzo floor tiles. For an inexpensive alternative, try Walls and Floors for porcelain tiles that look like terrazzo.
In for the long haul? Splash out at Bert & May. The encaustic tile experts have a fabulous choice of colours and patterns for your walls and floors.
These Spanish-style Pradena tiles get their gorgeous colour from natural pigments, making it a softer way to bring in some pink.
6. Pack a punch
These gorgeous Confiserie recycled matt glass mosaics at Claybrook will pack a punch in any bathroom. Available in triangular, square or chevron shapes, these tiles will transform your bathroom from plain to pizzazz instantly.
7. Bathtime bliss
A bateaux bath is the height of luxury, so take it a step further and have the exterior painted in a beautiful bold shade. Most companies will colour match to Farrow & Ball, Dulux and other popular paint shades. Add a blind or towels in complementing colours and voila!
