When you love the vintage vibe of a checkered pattern but want something more progressive than just the old-fashioned black and white color scheme, colored checkered bathrooms are the perfectly balanced result! Choose gentle colors, either neutral tones or ones that aren’t too enhanced, in order to allow other decor pieces in the bathroom to be in the center, whereas the floor simply sets the mood for the entire space.
This type of checkered pattern offers a lot of dynamic within a monochrome space. The diagonal shapes give the illusion of spaciousness and even the smallest bathrooms seem like they extend further than they actually do. If you are in love with monochrome bathrooms but worry about them becoming too monotone, a diagonal checkered pattern will not let you down!
Small yellow accents in the gray bathroom such as a stylish stool or side table next to the bathtub in bright yellow, a gorgeous rug in mustard yellow, or even a shower curtain and a few towels in gold or canary yellow can make a huge visual impact. But you can take this a step further with a shower curtain or a tiled shower wall that ushers in bold stripes or even the chevron pattern. Instead of just blocks of yellow set against a gray backdrop, geometric shapes and even eclectic patterns can enhance the impact of yellow, even as the gray background keeps things uncluttered and urbane.
