The classic design of the bathroom is a light, dim palette. But why not go beyond the ordinary and create your own unique environment, and red tiles in the bathroom will help us with this. And our article will tell you all about the bold design experiments with red colors, which have already won their “place in the sun” in the modern world.

Possible combinations of red

Red and white color scheme

It was the tandem of white and red that became the most successful; a bathroom in this style looks surprisingly attractive. White and red tiles in the bathroom are chosen by young couples, people of creative professions who are not afraid to decorate their lives with bright colors.

And now about the subtleties of design. If we talk about the proportions of both shades, then everything depends only on your own imagination. Designers skillfully dilute the main range with additional colors. This is a fairly wide range, including shades of gray, coffee color and even gold and silver.

There are several options for creating a red and white bathroom interior:

  1. In the first case, the leading color will be red. Plumbing fixtures, accessories, including lamps, as well as furniture must be pure white without any additional shades. This is the most common design technique and is especially popular. Such a bathroom, the red tiles of which are perfectly offset by white, looks stylish and tasty.

  1. The second option is the opposite of the one discussed earlier. Here the snow-white interior is diluted with red furniture and the same accessories. This is an equally stylish designer find that adorns the design of many bathrooms. This range will make the room more comfortable, adding elegant romance to it.

To make red really look harmonious, it is recommended to use the following methods:

  • red ceramics arranged in horizontal or vertical stripes;
  • one of the bathroom walls is completely tiled in red;
  • accentuating the mirror with a red border laid out around it.

Red tiles introduced in this way for the bathroom will look appropriate, adding bright highlights to the bathroom.

  1. Use of red plumbing fixtures in the interior. Quite an extravagant option, but nevertheless encountered. Of course, not as often as the first two. Buying a red acrylic bathtub will not be a problem, but a toilet and sink is a more difficult task, which, if desired, is quite doable. True, the cost of such items will be slightly higher than the white classics. But the bathroom will be simply gorgeous.

If red plumbing fixtures are not on sale, this option is possible

Red-black color scheme

Black color will add solid elegance to the interior. In a large bathroom, the combination of black and red will look more advantageous. Additionally, you can enter another shade. The most suitable color would be white or gray. This move will balance the bright red and black tones, slightly diluting the brutality of the latter.
