Match Colors for Your Bathroom Tile to Room Walls

Updated:2013-12-24 11:15:24
Replacing the tile in the bathroom instantly brightens and updates the room. It can also increase the value of your home. If you already have the wall color you love, it helps to narrow down the range of tile options. Choose the right hue for your tile, and your new bathroom can become a serene sanctuary or a cheery pick-me-up as you get ready each morning for work.

Instructions as follows:

                                                   

Firstly, bring a sample of your wall color with you when you shop for bathroom tile. Use the original paint swatch, or brush some of the leftover paint onto a piece of white poster board.
Secondly, tile has a different texture than wall paint, so even an exact color match will look different once installed. Rather than having two colors that look slightly off, consider a complementary or contrast tile color for your bathroom.
Thirdly, use a color wheel to find pleasing color combinations. The shades closest to your wall color create a serene environment. For yellow walls, try a light green or orange shade. Choose the right tone to match your wall color. A sunny yellow looks cheerful with a bright orange tile, while a pastel yellow is better suited to a more muted pumpkin shade.
Fourthly, make a bold statement by choosing a color that's directly across your wall hue on the color wheel. Pair your bright yellow walls with purple glass tile to create a striking modern bathroom. Try a print shower curtain and striped towels in your chosen colors to tie the elements together.
Fifthly, look for speckled or patterned bathroom tile that contains your wall color. A natural slate tile may have the exact gray-green shade running through it to match your paint swatch. Pair your orange walls with orange and royal-blue hand-painted ceramic slate tiles. The other colors in the tile will help offset any shade alteration due to the different textures.
