Recent fashion in bathroom decor has dictated that we all adhere to a minimalist, white, streamlined look, which, although it can make a room seem light, airy and spacious, sometimes sometimes end up feeling a little cold and sterile. Trends and tastes are always evolving, though, and introducing color into bathrooms is becoming ever more popular, in order to inject a little warmth and character back into these rooms that we all use everyday.

Gone forever are the avocado and apricot suites of old and the vast majority of bathroom fixtures and fittings are, and will remain, white. However, with the resurgent popularity of bathroom furniture that has occurred during the last few years, suppliers and designers are now producing a wide array of different colored finishes and styles to brighten up the modern bathroom.

Naturally finished wood bathroom furniture is a great and subtle way to lend a bathroom a feeling of warmth and texture. The organic feel of the mismatched grains and shades will help to offset the more clinical elements of your sanitaryware. A bold and striking choice is to opt for darker woods, such as Walnut or Wenge, which can seem sturdier and more luxurious than lighter woods such as pine and oak.
