Tips for a Neutral Bathroom Palette

A well-crafted neutral palette is ideal for a bathroom that feels crisp, sophisticated and modern. Layering a mix of grays, beiges and creams is often understated and, when done right, gives off an effect that is anything but boring, flat or dull. 

Here are 5 tips to maximize a neutral bathroom palette:

  • Add Texture: A bathroom rug or rugged surfaces are a great way to add texture. Use a faux fur or woven rug, choose pieces made of distressed wood or showcase a painted brick wall. 
  • Bring Shine: Mixing materials of glimmering and reflective surfaces adds striking visual interest like this oval sunburst mirror, a treasure of unexpected whimsy. I gravitate towards gold like this garden stool that could serve as a glam side table for your bathtub. 
  • Trendy Patterns: Animal prints and geometric patterns promote a modern aesthetic and are perfect in rugs and wallpaper. This plaid wallpaper crushes texture and trend and a nice patterned rug can break up a monochromatic look. 
  • Simplicity: Bathrooms should feel serene, clean and fresh. Maintaining a lack of clutter and proper organization emanates a feeling of calm. White decor is good for the vibe too like these awesome geo vases from West Elm. 
  • Chosen Materials: Go with sleek, glossy surfaces like marble or granite or add an earthy feel through slate floor tiles or rustic wood beams.
