As the colour pink continues to make headlines, the pink trend has become hard to ignore. But, when it comes to the bathroom, not many of us can cope with the Barbie Pink Pantone regularly! Yet, with several gentler shades of pink available in both fixtures and fittings, creating a dazzling but calming pink bathroom is certainly possible.
Whether you’re looking to add pink wall treatments or inject some pink accents, there's much bathroom inspiration to be taken from this colour palette. Here, The Bathroom Showroom has several fantastic ideas for your space. Showing you how to incorporate pink into your bathroom design, we help you discover the power of pink when creating an inspirational yet balanced luxury space.

Why Is a Pink Bathroom So Trendy?

The inclusion of the colour pink in the bathroom has always been popular with many homeowners. Whether pink and black, pink and white, or grey pink, a lot of furnishings work well with pink bathrooms. Pink is a captivating colour that can set the mood, creating a bathroom that’s both stylish and welcoming. 
Pink is often associated with femininity, love, and tenderness. It’s a colour believed to have a calming effect on the mind and body, making it an ideal choice for bathrooms where relaxation is important. Also, pink is known to stimulate creativity and inspire feelings of joy and happiness. By incorporating pink into your bathroom design, you can create a space that evokes a sense of tranquillity and promotes a positive mindset.
Ultimately, pink bathrooms have once more become trend-setting with the colour pink being thrust into the spotlight in 2023 as Warner Bros. released their highly-anticipated Barbie movie. 

Different Shades of Pink for Different Bathroom Styles

When incorporating pink into your bathroom design, the first step is to choose the perfect shade that complements your preferred style. Although not everyone is keen on adding magenta pink to this space, those gentler hues and pastel pinks are certainly proving popular in trendy pink bathroom designs. 
Whether you're going for a modern, minimalist look or a more traditional, vintage-inspired design, there’s a shade of pink for everyone that will work beautifully.
  • For a contemporary feel, opt for a soft blush pink or a dusty rose. These subtle shades will add a touch of warmth and femininity without overpowering the space. 
  • If you're looking to make a bold statement, consider using vibrant fuchsia or magenta accents against a neutral backdrop. These intense shades will create a striking contrast and add a pop of colour to your bathroom design. 
Remember, the key is to choose a shade of pink that resonates with your style and complements the overall aesthetic of your bathroom.
  • Pink Bathroom Tiles 
Whether you choose to cover an entire wall or create a statement backsplash, pink tiles can transform your bathroom. 
For a modern look, opt for sleek, glossy tiles in shades of blush or rose. These tiles will reflect light and create a sense of spaciousness in your bathroom. If you prefer a more traditional or vintage-inspired design, consider using pink subway tiles or patterned tiles to add a touch of nostalgia and charm to a vibrant and eye-catching space. 
For colour pop, Rose Matt tile colours from the Soleil range are gorgeous matt-glazed ceramic choices. As on-trend hexagon-shaped tiles, these can be laid in several patterns for the most stunning result.
Our most popular contemporary tile comes from the South Bank collection. And, for an on-trend pink colour, the Blossom choice from this collection is the perfect way to add a splash of colour to your bathroom. 
Offering versatile layout patterns, including vertical, herringbone, and brick bond, the choices are limitless with this tile. With a transparent gloss finish, glazed South Bank tiles can be used all around the bathroom.
  • Pink Bathroom Fittings and Fixtures
For a real statement, adding the colour pink to one or several prominent bathroom fittings and fixtures will create an amazing focal piece.
A superb way of incorporating a pink colour that defines this room is to consider painting your bath. The Heritage Buckingham is a beautifully traditional cast iron bath that’s primed with an undercoat. This ensures it’s ready for you to paint and customise with ease, opting for a pink paint colour that reflects your style.
Adding a dash of pink through your bathroom taps is also a fantastic way to gently introduce this wonderful hue. Rose Gold is a soft shade of pink that’s commonly used for its elegant and indulgent properties. The Roca Ona collection boasts several basin mixers and shower mixer taps in Rose Gold. Beautifully finished, this gentle colour is a delightful addition to any pink bathroom. 
  • Pink Bathroom Accessories and Accents
One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to incorporate pink into your bathroom design is through the use of accessories and accents. From towels and bath mats to shower curtains and soap dispensers, there are countless pink options available to suit any budget. 
By strategically placing pink accessories throughout your bathroom, you can instantly infuse the space with colour and personality. Consider opting for a mix of shades and textures to create visual interest. 
For example, you could choose a set of blush pink towels and pair them with a rose gold soap dispenser and a fuchsia bath mat. These small touches will add a sense of luxury and style to your bathroom without overwhelming the space.

Creating a Balanced Colour Scheme with Pink

While incorporating pink into your bathroom design can be exciting and visually appealing, it's important to create a balanced colour scheme to ensure a cohesive and harmonious look. Pink is a powerful colour that can easily dominate the space if not used strategically. 
To create a balanced colour scheme, consider pairing pink with neutral tones such as white, grey, or beige. These colours will help tone down the intensity of pink and create a more calming and balanced atmosphere. Additionally, you can incorporate other complementary colours such as green, blue, or gold to create a sense of visual interest and depth. 

The Power of Colour in Bathroom Design

Whether you choose to use pink tiles, accessories, fixtures, or bathroom furniture, there are countless ways to infuse your bathroom with colour and personality. Remember to choose a shade of pink that complements your preferred style and creates the desired mood. That way you can effortlessly create a bathroom that is visually stunning and uniquely yours.
