Infuse a bathroom with colour and energy by decorating it with an orange colour scheme. Orange ranges in shades from soft peach to vibrant coral, and every hue in between. Choose the shade that matches your decor style or design theme the best, to create a personalised bathroom look. If the bathroom already features orange floor tiles or walls, complement them with matching colours and bathroom accessories.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Choose an orange shade or a design theme to decorate around. Pick a complementing colour combination, such as apricot, chocolate brown and ecru. Decide on a design theme that works with the colour orange, such as an island or beach-inspired space.

  2. 2

    Paint the bathroom walls orange to set the stage for the decor look. Choose a soft orange colour to give the room a warm, earthy touch. Brush on bright coral paint to enhance a tropical decor theme.

  3. 3

    Hang a decorative shower curtain featuring the colour orange. Create a natural look with a curtain featuring a cream-coloured backdrop and soft orange and yellow tulip or rose patterns. Go for an island-inspired style with a shower curtain featuring a turquoise blue background and bright orange, red and yellow tropical fish designs.

  4. 4

    Display decorative orange towels. Hang a cream-coloured bath towel topped with a pastel orange washcloth featuring embroidered flower details. Enhance a beach-inspired bathroom with white towels featuring orange and yellow tropical fish or seashell patterns.

  5. 5

    Decorate with bathroom accessories. Choose a wooden soap dish and a burnished gold cup and toothbrush holder set to accent an orange bathroom with a nature-inspired look. Pick a brightly hued fish-shaped soap dish and a matching cup and toothbrush holder to complement a space with a tropical orange flair.

Tips and warnings

  • Since orange can be an overpowering colour, be sure to match in enough neutrals and other shades to give the space a warm and vibrant feel without going overboard.
