What colour should I choose?

Deciding on a colour scheme for your bathroom can be a challenge. When deciding which colours to use in your bathroom think about how you want the space to look and feel. It’s a good idea to take note of how much natural light there is, as this can have an impact on your chosen colour.

Let’s consider the Dulux Colour of the Year 2019 – Spiced Honey – a warm amber tone, inspired by the beauty and versatility of honey itself. Spiced Honey can be soothing or calming, cosy or vibrant, depending on the palette you pair it with.

Spiced Honey has a rich natural character that fills the space between caramel and mocha with a warm and understated earthiness. Its versatility may well be the key to its success when it comes to incorporating it within your bathroom design.


Warm neutrals and honey tones that are positive but calm, soft but serious. Use these to create a space where people need to relax, focus and take the time to contemplate. Muted warm neutrals quietly nourish the mind and Spiced Honey reflects the confident mood of the moment to inspire a feeling of positivity in people’s homes.

Use colours similar to Spiced Honey as the foundation to allow you to experiment with colour when connecting ensuite bathrooms to bedrooms or with cloakrooms to the rest of the interior. This will help you realise a sense of flow between areas creating a unified harmonious colour scheme throughout.

According to Dulux, the colour can be “calming and nourishing” or “stimulating and energising”, depending on the palettes and light surrounding it. “Spiced Honey is a warm caramel with notes of amber, that perfectly reflects our new sense of optimism and resilience for 2019,” says Marianne Shillingford, Dulux’s UK creative director. “Spiced Honey has a raw, natural quality that works like a warm neutral, which makes it so adaptable to pairing with different materials and styles of decoration,” she enthuses. “It looks especially good when teamed with whites and off-whites in furniture and furnishings, which gives it a contemporary feel.”

Neutral tones are easy to work with and have a timeless appeal. They also work well with wood effect furniture – perfect for both traditional and increasingly contemporary bathrooms.Coffee colours work well and Cappuccino is a firm favourite in 2019.

Scene is an advanced composition of mineral compounds, organic polymers and specific additives which are designed to be moulded. It is also known as synthetic stone and is included in a group of “solid surface” materials – skinless synthetic materials whose outermost surfaces have the same properties as their interiors.

The synthetic resin component in its structure gives it a certain amount of elasticity, while the mineral compounds act as a kind of shield that provide resistance to wear and tear, and also give it anti-slip qualities. Principal characteristics: Extremely rigid, Resistance to chemical agents, Hard-wearing, Pleasant to the touch, Homogenous, Ease of cleaning and repair, Non-porous Hygienic qualities, Highly attractive.

When it comes to matching brassware to these natural colours, we think Copper is the perfect finish for taps, showers and accessories.
