Pink may not be one of the most popular colors, but those who love it, do so with a passion. And for good reason, too — according to Color Psychology, pink is a very stimulating and beneficial color. It’s most commonly associated with feelings of love and romance, as well as optimism. It also instills feelings of calmness and safety, having lots of the sensuality and intimacy of red, but without the aggressive undertone.
If you’re in the camp of people who love the color pink, consider incorporating it in your next bathroom remodel or design. With its soothing and gentle psychological properties (via Verywell Mind), combined with its decorative versatility and appeal, you can’t go wrong with adding pink to your bathroom — whether it’s a touch or a swath. Being such an adaptable color, it can be used in any variety of ways, in any number of shades or saturations, etc. Keep reading for ideas on how to make your bathroom a pink-inspired haven.
1. Pink paradise
A vibrant and tropical-inspired pink can easily transform a simple bathroom into a dreamy paradise. Swap out your plumbing hardware for gold to enhance the shade.
2. Moody pink
For a moodier, more demure approach to a pink bathroom, go for deeper and darker shades of pink. You can even go so far as doing a dark pink wall against a dark pink sink, playing with color contrast.
3. Pearlescent pink theme
Pink is a very versatile and easy to work with shade, especially in lighter shades. Find a light, pearlescent shade of pink, and use it in the whole bathroom, including the wall tiles, floor tiles, bathtub, and sink.
4. Trendy and modern
Create a wonderfully modern and colorful bathroom by centering it around a millennial pink color. Add sleek black hardware finishes and classic marble for a lovely contrast.
5. Classic pink and gold
One of the best metal colors to pair with pink is gold, and there’s no better opportunity for this pairing than the bathroom. Pair a pink sink basin with a gold faucet, a pink tub with a gold handle, etc.
6. Half-tiled pink wall
Include pink in your bathroom in a simple but definitely effective manner by tiling the bottom half of your walls with light pink tiles. Keep the walls white, adding in touches of raw, light toned woods.
7. Pink tub
A more unique but nonetheless eye-catching way to include pink in your bathroom is to get a pink bathtub.
8. Hot pink backsplash
While softer shades of pink may be more neutral and easy to work with, few shades of pink are as bold and striking as hot pink. It can easily overpower small spaces like bathrooms, though, so consider only using it for a backsplash.
9. Light pink accent wall
On the other end of the spectrum, very light shades of pink can act as a colorful neutral. Add an extra layer of texture and intrigue by texturizing a light pink accent wall.
10. Modern tropical style
Many shades of pink are naturally very tropical, so if that’s the aesthetic you’re going for, you’re in luck. Enhance it by adding some tropical plants in your bathroom.
11. Minimalist pink accent wall
Minimalism doesn’t have to be drab and monochromatic. Add a simple, clean pink tile accent wall to liven up your minimalist bathroom.
12. Matching tub and sinks
Pink can act as a great contrast color, especially against darker shades. Add a pop of light pink in a black bathroom with a pink tub and matching sink counters.
13. Colorful and classic
Pink doesn’t have to be the only colorful pop in your bathroom. Mix it with shades of blue, green, and other fun colors for a lively bathroom design.
14. Rose petal pink
A sophisticated and elevated shade of pink that would look great in a bathroom is rose petal. Pair it with classic white appliances.
15. Dark and moody pink
Darker, robust shades of pink also look great in bathrooms, and help create a moodier and more intimate feeling.
16. Trendy pink patterned walls
Pink is a very versatile shade, being both trendy and adaptable. Use pink walls to show off a trendy scalloped pattern.
17. Watermelon theme
Another fun and colorful approach to a pink bathroom is to create a watermelon color scheme, using a bright and corally pink, paired with a similarly bright green.
18. Simple pink and white
Add just a pop of color and visual intrigue in an otherwise plain white bathroom with a pink accent wall.
19. Luxurious magenta
Magenta is a deep, purple-toned pink that has a luxurious look and feel. Paint your bathroom a rich, satin-finished shade of magenta for a rich and intimate environment.
20. Trendy flamingo and yellow
Pink and yellow are a trendy and gorgeous color combination. Add some pops of chartreuse yellow to a flamingo pink bathroom for a trendy and slightly retro look.
21. Sleek pink and black
Black and pink can look incredibly sophisticated and luxurious if paired correctly. Pair a light and desaturated pink with black marble for a rich and luxe effect.
22. Marble accents
Instead of adding pink touches to a marble bathroom, consider adding marble touches to a pink bathroom. Go bold with a pink tub, sink, toilet, walls, and decorations, adding marble sporadically to break it up.
23. Pink and copper
Gold is a gorgeous metal color to use in a pink bathroom, but you can amp up the pink vibes by switching it out for copper, which has a natural pink undertone. Keep the pink light, though, so it doesn’t overpower the copper, and vice versa.
24. Mauve pink accent wall
Mauve pink is a deep, purpley shade of pink, and has a very youthful but still sophisticated look. Include it via an accent wall in a luxe marble bathroom for a lovely touch of pink.
25. Pink counters
Another unique way to incorporate pink in your bathroom in a natural, subtle way, is to paint your bathroom sink cabinets. You can keep the rest of the bathroom darker or more neutral, letting the pink cabinets stand out.
26. Light pink chevron walls
Pink is a lovely color for showing off patterns, especially in lighter colors. Add some variation to simple pink bathroom walls by adding a light chevron pattern.
27. Trendy salmon and sky blue
Pink and blue are another amazing, complementary color combination. Add a touch of sophistication by opting for a smooth salmon pink with a sky blue.
28. Dramatic and elegant
If you have a flair for the dramatics in terms of bathroom design, pink is an excellent color to start with. Opt for a slightly busy but still elegant pattern, and incorporate lots of gold.
29. Peachy pink
Peach-toned pink has a lot of orange undertones, but a rich, salmony pink finish. It looks great as either an accent wall shade or for your entire bathroom.
30. Subtle and classic
If you desaturate pink enough, it can look nearly white. This is great for adding a very light and subtle pop of color and elegance to your bathroom.
31. Baby pink and soft blue
For an airier and lighter look in your bathroom, choose a baby pink and soft blue color palette, accenting it with marble floors.
32. Dusty rose
Dusty rose is a rich but refined and classic shade of dark pink, and would look great as a bathroom wall tile color.

Pink and purple are perhaps one of the most, if not the most, timeless color combinations. Add a pink tub to a purple bathroom for an uninhibited feminine vibe.
34. Zen style
Pink is a bit of a lively color, which makes it an uncommon choice for a zen bathroom. However, that liveliness can help create an energetic but nonetheless relaxing and rejuvenating feel.
35. Classic pink accent wall
There’s no need to get fancy with the pink in your bathroom — the color speaks for itself. Add a simple, traditional pink accent wall in a basic bathroom for an easy spruce.
36. Pale pink wall tiles
Another subtle but classy way to include pale pink in your bathroom is by incorporating it via wall tiles. They’ll have a neutral effect, with just a hint of color.
You don’t have to paint all your walls pink to include it in your bathroom design. Tile the bottom half of your walls white, painting the top half your favorite shade of pink.
38. Vintage style
Vintage bathrooms were very commonly tiled in colorful shades — especially pink. Lean into the vintage vibes with relevant décor, hardware, and appliance silhouettes.
39. Luxurious gold and bronze
Another way to lean into the luxurious feel of pink is to pair it with lots of bronze detailing, especially antique mirrors or decorative accents.
40. Pink accents
If you are a renter or just don’t want to commit to a fully pink bathroom, consider just adding lots of pink accessories: hand towels, shower curtains, bath mats, toothbrush holders, artwork, etc.
