Paint your bath tub a bright colour

By Amber Clery in Decorating on Wednesday, July 4, 2012 - 10:02

Are you tired of looking at your traditional white bathroom suite? Well why not change the look of the whole room by painting your bath tub a vibrant colour and adding some brightly coloured towels and accessories? This pretty pink-painted bath really pops in this crisp white bathroom. You'll pick up similar towels at Cath Kidston.

If you're feeling very brave, opt for a zingy lime shade like this one - this will surely wake you up in the morning! Check out We Love Furnishings on Pickit for fluffy brightly coloured towels. 

We love this beautiful deep blue bath tub - especially against the white backdrop.

How about a sunny shade of yellow for your bath tub?

The possibilities are endless. Painted bath tubs are mainly effective on bath tubs on feet which you can paint the same colour for a unified look. Ask an expert at Woodies or a good DIY store on suitable primers and paints for cast iron baths and acrylic baths. Painting a cast iron bath will be a more expensive undertaking as it will need to be sanded and carefully primed but well worth it - remember preparation is the key.
