Years ago, bathrooms only came in a few colors, and most of the time they were neutral or very feminine colors. Today, bathrooms have become a focal point in many homes to bring drama, mystery and a wow factor! Whether you are looking to impress in your guest bathroom or you want to add drama to your master bathroom, color and light are the two top factors to make it happen. See how your bathroom can become that dramatic space that you always envisioned.
- Bold and dramatic color: If you are trying to turn on the drama in your bathroom, adding dark colors is the top way to achieve this gorgeous look. From wallpaper and faux finishes to chocolate browns and deep royal blue colored paint, dramatic color evokes a sense of mystery and sophistication. To achieve the look without your bathroom feeling like a cave, ensure there is plenty of natural light or a mix of light finishes. Pairing white subway tile, flooring, or wainscoting is a good option for dark walls above.

- Create a focal point: Drama can lie in color, but drama can also lie in where the eyes are drawn to in your bathroom. Creating a focal point in your bathroom, such as using gorgeous vessel sinks atop a bold vanity, or an above ground tub that will make your mouth drop at the first sight of it. Add drama with a valance or fabric swag above your bathtub for added texture and visual interest. Consider adding contrasting hues of tone-on-tone color throughout your bathroom for attention grabbing ambiance.
