If your decorating style leans more toward primitive, there's a perfect yellow shade out there for you. Warm earth tones are most common in this style, evoking a sense of authenticity. The most commonly used primitive colors are mustard yellow, navy blue, barn red, and hunter green. Everything also has a bit more of a weathered look like the pieces in this bathroom.
Bright Sunny Hue
One of the best ways to brighten up a room is through color. Yellow symbolizes happiness and optimism, and when wrapped in its colors, it gives off a sense of warmth and inspiration. The large mirrors open up the room even more and reflect the natural light to fill all the spaces.

As one of the brightest colors in the visible spectrum, you literally can't miss the sight of its brilliance. With floor to ceiling yellow color, you'll be enveloped into its positivity. If your toilet is separate from the rest of your bathroom, consider dawning it in this bright sunny hue.
Soft Yellow Walls
If your bathroom is on the smaller side, painting the walls, a lovely, pale shade of yellow will help give the illusion that the room is more significant than it is. It makes the room have a bit of a feel-good ambiance. You won't feel hurried out or rushed when surrounded by this color.
Bright Yellow Cabinetry
Have you ever considered painting the cabinetry in your bathroom? Maybe after seeing this picture, you'll head home and try it out for yourself. The bright sunny yellow adds an impressive glow to your bathroom, especially if your bathroom lacks in natural light. It's a neat color blocking scheme that won't soon be forgotten.
If you feel like you can't fully commit to painting your walls yellow or installing a yellow backsplash, paint with a beige yellow. This mellow color has hints of yellow but isn't too noticeable. This color helps to pull out other yellow tones that you may end up using in this space. This color also helps to highlight gold accents like seen in the faucets.

These Saltillo colored tiles bring a warm, unique look to the space. It very well complements yellow elements as well as the smooth, natural white walls. Experiment with using different sized tiles to create the appearance of different depths in the room.
Colorful tiles such as these liven up the room and give it a fun contrast to the other bathroom elements. Bathroom tiles are a popular option and come in a seemingly unlimited number of shapes, textures, styles, and sizes. This versatility guarantees that you can create the ideal aesthetic. If you have high bathroom ceilings, installing small tiles is a great choice.
Balance of Colors and Patterns
Balancing all different kinds of elements in a bathroom space is key to harmony. It's achievable; you have to know how the different colors and patterns work together. Using glass tiles in place of windows preserve privacy without sacrificing the entrance of natural light.
Tiled Bathroom for Texture
Check out how much texture is added to this bathroom through the arrangement of small tiles all around the room. Each tile has a subtle sheen to them as well as having darker colored tiles sprinkled into the mix. An interruption of color breaks up the monotony that would otherwise be present.
The geometric patterns of this bathroom are intriguing. It's a very minimally designed space, letting the colors and shapes do the talking. The floating white sinks and glass shower keep the design low key and functional, yet unforgettable.
Keeping tones neutral and earthy makes a room seem even cleaner and crisp. Using a combination of colors ensures that the space won't fall flat; a layering of tones does just the trick. Subtle yellow hues can be seen, adding the right amount of cheeriness.
The use of bathroom tiles can go a long way in the bathroom. They add in a level of texture and color that otherwise may not be present. It can be easy to overwhelm a space with too much going on, but these tiles are ideal.
In a stark white bathroom, using lemon yellow puts a little bit of exciting zing. It breaks up the monochromatic tones and is visually stimulating. Bright yellow hardware is another fun addition. Notice the pattern on the ceiling: this is a great way to add more intrigue to a bathroom.
Modern and Glossy
The glossy golden walls of this bathroom craft a very glamorous, modern aesthetic. The floating white vanity transcends space and takes the bathroom to the next level. Installing tall, spindly branches in a vase adds depth and intrigue, and interspersing other greenery adds life.
Pale Yellow for a Soft Glow
The pale yellow paint in this space gives you just the right amount of a happy tone. It helps to widen the area and give it a more open feel. Putting a fresh bouquet in your bathroom is always a good idea. Not only do they add a gorgeous aesthetic, but they also a sense of freshness and growth.
Warm and Inviting
Let your bathtub be the focal point of your bathroom. The patterned tile work surrounding the tub adds a new dimension to the room and is a piece of art in and of itself. The glossy surfaces of the floor and area around the tub complement the tones found in the room.
Brighten up a Tight Space
Cover your uniquely shaped bathroom in shades of yellow to fill in the spaces and bring in the sense of wider areas. Using larger tiles in smaller spaces helps to give the illusion that it's larger as well as providing the floor a beautiful patterned look.
Creamy yellow colors are effortless to pair with bright colors such as this jewel-tone blue. The larger tile on half the wall helps to expand the space, which transitions into little tile work, then proceeds to a diagonal pattern of white tiles. The transition of this space goes a long way to improve the aesthetic.
A Bright Color when Natural Light is Lacking
Since natural light is limited in this bathroom, the use of light yellow expands the room and opens up the room. The shower and bath are covered in earth-toned tiles, grounding the space. The darker colored tiles create more visual interest. With a yellow color like this one, you can incorporate nearly any design style into it.
Kiddie Bathroom Decor

The crisp, clean white cabinetry, vanities, tiles, trim, and tub beautifully contrast the golden hues of the walls and bathroom accents. The wall colors even match the gorgeous fall tones outdoors when that season rolls around. With such simple colors, you can easily add in other accent colors you may want.
Bright Yellow Floral Accent
The bright yellow floral accent does an incredible job of tying the bathroom together. It's the right balance of yellow for the rest of the space since the cabinetry carries most of the color. The light earthy tones of the countertop, floor tiles, faucets, and towels contrast with the sunny hue of the cabinets. Design is all about balance.
Yellow and Black Modern Bathroom
If your favored style aesthetic is modern, this may be the ultimate bathroom inspiration for you. The combination of these shapes, colors, patterns, and textures are ideal. The pairing of black and yellow are bold and unmissable. The white tile and curtains help maintain balance while the plants bring a more natural vibrancy.

The monochromatic grey bathroom is broken up by the use of bright yellow accessories. In an otherwise single-color room, the yellow adds the perfect amount of color. Another thing to note about this bathroom is the way that different textures are used. Balance a fresh color palette with this accent color.
Experiment with Shapes
