Enhance your bathroom’s natural light

Boost bathroom brightness with a harmonising colour scheme.

Crisp, bright colours are your best friends if you want to fake natural light in a bathroom without windows. Paint your walls pale shades of warm colours, like buttercup yellow, pink and light seaside shades of aqua blue. Then select a colour that is two or three shades lighter to decorate your ceiling. This will define the space and offer visual contrast, as well as lead the eye away from dark corners.

The lights in the bathroom also play a big part. Place warm lighting with a dimmer switch over the vanity and shower to make warm colour schemes sparkle. Want an instant update? A large mirror over your vanity is the best way to soften the look of artificial light.
