The color of your bathroom tile has a huge impact on the age it looks. Even if you install all new tile or invest in tile refinishing, choosing the wrong color can make the remodeling a complete waste. Luckily, the team here at Maryland Tub and Tile are here to steer you in the right direction. Here are tile colors that make your bathroom look outdated (and what you can do to fix them).
Pastel Pink, Blue and Teal
Pastel colors were popular in the 50’s, often paired with black tile borders. While these tile colors will work well in a retro-themed hotel or bar, they aren’t ideal for a modern home. Some light colors are seen in updated bathrooms, like pale yellow or accents of light green. However, most up-to-date bathrooms use neutral colors like grey, white, or natural stone in their designs.
Mustard Yellow, Rust Brown And Olive Green
These colors came about a little later on in bathroom designs, but they are still seen in many bathrooms today. If you have a well-built home from the 70’s, 80’s, or even the 90’s, you may have mustard yellow tiles, sinks, or countertops in your bathroom. The same can be said for olive green and rust brown. These colors instantly date your bathroom and make the space feel older and dingier than it actually is. It might be time for a facelift.
This may come as a surprise to you, but white can be a dated color. It all depends on the application. A beautiful white tub or white tile can look perfectly modern, but it will look dated if your entire bathroom is white. In today’s bathroom designs, it’s all about visual contrast. You don’t have to have sharp contrasts like black and white, but you should have variations of colors that create depth and intrigue. You could keep your existing white tiles and change your countertop color to something a little more exciting, or you could change the colors of the walls and décor to liven up the restroom. There is no limit to what you can do if you let your imagination take over.
