Bathroom Color Ideas for a Fresh Summer Makeover

Bright bathroom with freestanding tub and blue tile backsplash.

Bathroom feeling dull and uninspiring? A summer bathroom makeover is a fantastic opportunity to infuse vibrant colors, refreshing patterns, and lively textures into the space.  

Color is one of the easiest ways to make the bathroom feel completely new. Here are some colorful bathroom ideas to help you create a bright and cheerful oasis that will set the tone for your summer. 

Mood board with tropical color scheme.

Tropical Paradise 

Bring the beach vibes indoors by incorporating tropical colors such as turquoise, coral, and sunny yellow. Consider adding wallpaper with palm leaf or tropical flower patterns to create a statement wall. 

Our Favorites – Glass Sinks 

Glass offers opportunities for color and texture that can transform the look and feel of the bathroom. This green glass sink by Kraus is the perfect match for a tropical design with its green palette and organic, leaf-like texture. It sits atop the vanity countertop so it’s on full display and a key part of your design.

Citrus Splash 

Energize your bathroom with citrus-inspired hues like lemon yellow, lime green, and tangerine orange. You can introduce these colors through accessories such as towels, shower curtains, and bathmats for a refreshing summer feel. 

Mood board with blue ocean inspired palette.

Ocean Blue 

Create a serene oasis reminiscent of the ocean by using shades of blue ranging from soft aqua to deep navy. Pair blue accents with crisp white fixtures and natural wood elements to evoke a coastal-inspired ambiance. 

Our Favorites – The Blue Vanity 

The vanity is often the visual center of the bathroom—whether it deserves it or not. A blue vanity ensures that the vanity isn’t only the center of attention, but also that it is stunning. We offer an assortment of vanity styles in blue from transitional wall-mounted varieties to ultra-modern sleek vanities.

Mood board featuring bohemian styles and colors.

Bohemian Chic 

Embrace a bohemian aesthetic by layering rich jewel tones such as emerald green, sapphire blue, and amethyst purple. Mix and match patterned textiles, such as Moroccan-inspired rugs and eclectic shower curtains, to add depth and personality to the space. 

Mood board with sunset inspired palette and products.

Sunset Palette 

Capture the warmth and beauty of a summer sunset with a palette of warm tones like peach, coral, and rosy pink. Consider incorporating these colors through wall paint, tiles, or decorative accents for a cozy and inviting atmosphere. 

Our Favorites – Warm Metallics 

Warm metallics like brass, gold, bronze, and copper are an excellent way to top off a warmer color palette. Choose your faucets and fixtures in the warmer metal finishes to achieve sunset perfection. 


Pastel Dream 

Create a soft and serene atmosphere with a palette of pastel colors like mint green, lavender, and blush pink. These gentle hues can be incorporated through wall paint, subway tiles, or decorative accessories for a whimsical and airy feel. 

Bold Contrasts 

Make a statement with bold color contrasts by pairing vibrant shades with crisp white or black accents. Consider using geometric patterns or color-blocking techniques to add visual interest and drama to the space. 

Our Favorites – Black in the Bathroom 

Though black might not seem like the most obvious choice for adding vibrance to the bathroom, it’s the contrast that makes this scheme work. Black and white is the classic go-to but consider adding other accent colors that black will make even more vibrant. For instance, a bright tiled shower with a black shower faucet will make both elements stand out. 

Natural Elements 

Incorporate natural elements such as wood, stone, and plants to add warmth and texture to your colorful bathroom. Consider adding potted plants, woven baskets, or wooden shelving to bring the outdoors in and create a tranquil retreat.
