Colorful Bathtub Ideas For A Trendy Bathroom

Modern homeowners, as well as designers, have a lot of emphasis placed on color schemes and style for bathrooms and other rooms around the house. Standalone bathtubs have become an interesting development as a solution for your bathroom, so they make for a different approach to an otherwise boring room of your home.

A colorful bathtub will not only add more life to your bathroom, but it will also help with the color scheme of the entire space as well. No matter what path you decide to take, one thing is that these bathtubs will not be of the boring kind and you will have a truly unique experience for your home. Just note that you will also need to look for a practical blend between style and materials that are easy for bathroom cleaning, so choose wisely.

The following tips will point out how you can create a trendy bathroom with colorful bathtub.

Creating A New & Vibrant Atmosphere

Creating A New & Vibrant Atmosphere

There is a good reason why most painted bathtubs are reinvigorated and repainted older claw-foot style bathtubs. A simple paint job on one of these classic tubs will be a great way to make a solution that is solid, long lasting and stylish without much effort involved. Claw feet can also be painted in a different color and even a more neutral one to create an interesting solution for your needs. Tubs may come in many varieties and styles, each of which may have its own classic rim top, flat rim top and a slipper tub. In the end, the results will be classy and memorable.

Using Antique Claw Foot Bathtubs

Purchasing a real antique claw-foot style bathtub is a pretty expensive move however, so get ready to spend a pretty penny. Modern replicas are a much cheaper approach, as well as allowing you to experiment with the paint job as well. If you plan on having a more contemporary bathroom, then you should go for a softer pastel-colored approach. Gray and black bathtubs will look more modern than anything else, so keep that in mind when you work.

Incorporating Different Styles

Incorporating Different Styles

Colorful bathtubs will not only come in a variety of potential colors and hues, but also a varying amount of styles as well. Red can be a great and invigorating approach to colors, making your bathroom look fresh and welcoming; cool ocean blue can evoke a calming effect; mellow yellow for a gentle and sunlit tone; green for a woodland charm and brown for a calming and warm tone. The combinations can be many, as long as you are fully aware of what you’re looking for when you work on it. Obviously, the color of the bathtub will only work that well if the rest of the bathroom has the vibe to fit, such as flawlessly contrasting colors that work well together like red and black or white and so forth.

Making A Creative Decision

Get creative and don’t hesitate to go one step beyond the usual styles if you feel you it will make a difference. You should however make sure you choose the right materials and stick to a more practical solution since you will also need to deal with floor cleaning, carpet cleaning and bathroom cleaning. Needless to say, it would be preferable if you don’t have to call a cleaning company to deal with excessive mold issues and worse.

Making A Creative Decision


When all is said and done, the end results will be a blend and mesh between your chosen style and the bathtub you have to work with. Do your best to ensure you have things planned well ahead of time, as it will take a small amount of time to complete your bathroom redesign.
