The white bathroom suite is everywhere, but have you ever wondered why nearly every suite only comes in that one colour? Seems a bit boring and one-dimensional, I hear you say. Well letís take a look at the reasons why white bathrooms suites are so overwhelmingly popular, and perhaps you wonít think white is quite so dull after all. You might even gain a better understanding and a deeper appreciation of the colour.

Think back to the 80s and those wonderfully avant garde avocado bathroom suites that were all the rage back then. Whatís the first word that comes into your mind now?
Garish? Tacky? Tasteless? I thought so. Well with a white bathroom suite you canít go wrong. White is classic and timeless. A white bathroom suite will never go out of fashion because it doesnít matter what colours are ďinĒ this season, the room will compliment them perfectly, making it the ideal blend of modern minimalism and classic elegance.

With a white bathroom suite, you have an almost infinite choice of highlighting or accent colours for bathroom accessories, bathroom fittings and bathroom furniture. Itís far simpler to replace these than to rip out the entire suite should your tastes change over time. Itís also much easier to replace a damaged or broken part of a white suite than it is to perfectly match a coloured suite, and you donít have to worry about availability 5 or 10 years later. White bathroom suites will always be around.

White has always been known as the colour of peace and calm. Thereís nothing quite like allowing yourself to slowly sink into a deliciously warm bath and let all your muscles relax and unwind. Itís a proven fact that your environment has a strong effect on your emotional state, and a bathroom decorated in a tranquil, relaxing colour like white is beneficial for the body, mind and soul.

For all you landlords or property sellers out there, a white bathroom suite has been proven time and time again to be the most attractive colour a prospective tenant or buyer can see. It doesnít matter what their personal tastes, a white bathroom suite is most likely to please and least likely to offend them. It may even add value to your home if youíve done a lot of bathroom renovation.

If space is at a premium, then a white bathroom suite is your best friend. It will make a smaller bathroom appear brighter and more spacious to the naked eye. Take a look at the two pictures below. Would you believe me if I told you they are the exact same bathroom? The one with the white suite looks so much larger!

White bathroom suites are also generally less expensive than their coloured cousins, for the obvious reason that it costs more to add thick coats of multiple colours in the manufacturing process than it does a few layers of white. Thereís nothing better than white to give the impression of a luxury bathroom suite and still keep your costs down.

However you should take into consideration when planning and designing your bathroom that you can have too much of a good thing.

Too much white, or too harsh lighting and youíll lose the warm tranquil feeling youíre trying to foster in your bathroom, and instead make it seem clinical and surgical. Who could possibly relax in a bathroom that feels like an operating theatre or dental surgery? Certainly not me!

As long as you use a firm accent colour to offset any overpowering, a white bathroom suite will enhance your entire bathing experience, from the instant you step into the room right up to the moment you close the door behind you.
