The pink bathroom ideas below offer up a heavy dose of fresh, modern and on-trend inspiration.

From all the bathroom colour ideas out there, pink is the one that's surged in popularity the most over the past year, with incredibly chic pink bathrooms popping up in designer homes and all over our social media feeds. To avoid looking naff or tacky, the pink bathrooms often feature undertones of either yellow or grey, making them an off-pink shade. Pairing the colour with more edgier details like raw concrete, black taps and Crittall doors gives these pink bathrooms a more cool and modern look, while peachy tones combined with brass and marble create more elegant, sophisticated schemes.

Another favourite of-the-moment look is graphic pink tiles, and tadelact - or polished plaster - is a great way to bring a beautiful earthy pink pigment into your bathroom or shower area. And there are professional firms who can apply it for you and ensure it's waterproof.

Rather than tile an entire wall or floor, if you're just after a splash of pink or a nod the the trend, think about a tiled splash-back next to basin or bath - or in a shower room.

Want to take things a step further? A free-standing pink bath tub is the height of decadence - and many companies, such as Waters of Ashbourne, Victoria + Albert Baths, BC Designs and Albion, will colour match a bath exterior to the exact shade you want.

There's a pink bathroom idea here to suit every home...

1. Graphic lines

Serene yet sexy, dusky pinks and 3D monochrome features transform this chic Parisian bathroom into a sanctuary. Designed by New York-based Crosby Studios, it has strong geometric shapes that ooze a post-modern vibe. Versatile black-and-white bathroom products can be mixed with almost any other colours, while painting the back wall a lighter shade creates a sense of depth and perspective.

9. Sherbert shades

Warmer, sherbet hues – think pastels with a zingy twist – evoke an era of glitz and hedonism.

‘Dial back to Miami in the Thirties and Palm Springs in the Fifties – big ice cream-coloured convertibles, glamorous abodes and pool parties,’ says Louise Ashdown, showroom manager and head of design at West One Bathrooms. 'The true beauty of sherbet shades is that they work exceptionally well with the still-trending metallic brassware we’ve all fallen hard for – try mixing strawberry pink with matt gold taps. The effect is stunning and will lift your bathroom to new heights,’ adds Louise.

Are pink bathrooms on trend?

It won't have escaped your notice that the clinical white bathroom is over. Or that pink is a colour that's having its moment in the style spotlight. So put the two together for a bathroom scheme that's truly on point.

What goes with pink bathrooms?

Unless you're already planning a renovation, opting for a pink bathroom doesn't have to involve an expensive - or wasteful - overhaul. It's a look that can be achieved with ease in a number of ways, utilising your existing bathroom furniture and sanitary-ware. In fact against a blush backdrop, white fittings really stand out.

What's the easiest way to get a pink bathroom?

A fresh lick of paint is the most obvious way to introduce pink in the bathroom. Most paint brands are onto it with trend driven colour palettes and we've seen a beautiful spectrum of grown-up pinks ranging from the palest calamine to those with earthy red pigments from Farrow & Ball, Little Greene, Earthborn, Annie Sloan and Benjamin Moore, to name just a few.

What colour is best for a pink bathroom?

The best pink colours for the bathroom are peachy pink (pair it with brass and marble), or a dusty blush colour with grey undertones (pair it with concrete finishes, Crittall-style shower screens and black taps and brassware). Highlighting architectural features is an effective way to add a flush of blush or a burst of pink toned terracotta. We'd suggest avoiding any sugary, sacharinne soaked shades as these can look tacky.
