When you walk into a home with a pink bathroom, you know you’re somewhere special. Most of us, in our quests to curate truly stunning homes, neglect our bathrooms, instead directing our attention to more obvious spaces, like our bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. A decorated bathroom, then, is a sign of someone who’s put effort into every corner of their home. And a pink bathroom signals even more thought and consideration: This person cared so much about their bathroom that they made it the boldest room in the house.
It takes a special kind of person to make a bathroom pink, and those who do venture into pink bathroom territory emerge with spaces that can only be described as impressively lovely. Some use paint and tiles to coat their walls in pink. Others take advantage of the wonders of wallpaper, adding texture and color to their bathrooms in equal measure. And some creatives use lightbulbs to establish a rosy ambiance.
These design decisions vary in their commitment to the color pink, but all of them achieve the same aim: to transform an oft-neglected space into something truly special—to make every corner of the house somewhere worth spending time.
Read on for 20 inspiring bathrooms that make great use of the color pink.
If you’re committed to crafting a truly bold, truly special pink bathroom, go all in on pink tile. Yes, renovations can be expensive and time-consuming. But if you know you want a daring pink bathroom, a vibrant pink shower is the most effective (and impressive) way of making that happen.
Minimalism and color don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Light pink accents—like runners and lighting fixtures—can warm up your space without ruining your muted aesthetic. And the great thing about runners is: They’re temporary. If one doesn’t fit into your color scheme quite the way you imagined it would, you can always swap it out with another.
If you want to take the pink bathroom idea for a test run, consider swapping your light bulbs out with rosier options. They’ll lend your bathroom a little ambiance without requiring you to do much work—or spend much money. And they’ll still leave your bathroom feeling decidedly (though perhaps subtly) pink.
The simplest way to do a pink bathroom is, of course, to paint your bathroom pink. It’s a little more time-consuming than buying a rug, but way less effort-intensive than a renovation. And you’ll have total control over how it turns out. (If you decide you want a two-tone pink wall, for example, you’ll get to make sure it looks exactly the way you want it to.)
