Think Pink – Why pink bathrooms are as popular as ever!

Throughout lockdown, we have all spent a lot more time at home which has led to a huge increase in interiors spending as we all look to improve the space we live in. Styles and colour play a huge role in our interior choices, are traditionally driven by the fashion industry and then filter through to the world of home interiors. Quite often we see a trend or style that we never thought would come back into fashion, how wrong could we be...

Throughout 2019 and 2020, we have seen pink bathrooms find their popularity throughout the bathroom industry. Known for its vintage feel and cooling aesthetic, pink is soon becoming more about making a statement and achieving that picture-perfect look for your bathroom.

Paired with minimal grey tones or mixed with multiple bold colours, the pink hue is a colourful contender to re-invent your entire bathroom space and leave your guests in awe. Whether you opt for the full effect with bathroom furniture or keep it simple with accessories and ceramics, Calypso has got just the reason why you should opt for a pink bathroom for your next home project.

The style comes with a history...

Would you believe that there is a story behind the pink bathroom trend?

Not just your typical colour palette, pink bathrooms found their popularity in the post-war era of the 1950's, simply introduced to the market as a sign of vibrance against the solemn grayscale of war-time colour schemes.

In the same decade, the current First Lady of the United States, Mamie Eisenhower glorified the trend by re-decorating the private quarters of the White House in pink — so much so that reporters called it the “Pink Palace”. This move alone resulted in over 10 million pink bathroom installations in the USA, highlighting the consumer interest for a brighter bathroom choice.

Fast forward to 2020, the same pink bathroom is back in fashion and is now a very desired style among homeowners.

Why choose Dusky Pink?

Our Dusky Pink finish is now available in not one, but two ranges for you to choose from. Due to popular demand, the finish can now be found in the Chiltern and Brecon collections and can be easily styled to suit any size of bathroom or en-suite.

Our original, ever-popular Chiltern range first hosted the Dusky Pink finish and was a modern enhancement of a reserved, traditional style. With this option, you get the best of both worlds and is unrivalled in its ability to complement any bathroom space you’re looking to transform.

The Brecon range offers even more design potential and caters for modern and traditional choices. The range showcases uncluttered and unambiguous square fascias that will help any size bathroom to become a spacious haven. Especially in the Dusky Pink, you can design around the units with stunning accessories or make them the key focus of attention.

Our Styling Tips

Pink bathroom furniture is typically paired with stunning brushed brass or rose gold accessories, and we admit, this trend is always a winner.

Both the brushed brass or the rose gold enhance the pink tones, and paired with one of our white worktop options, it will make your new bathroom project even more exciting.

For a more vintage feel, chrome accessories will automatically bring you back to the 1950s. Although the chrome basin frames are a thing of the past, chrome handles and accessories will leave a modern nostalgic feeling in your bathroom.

Why not try a neutral palette to make pink the focus of your bathroom? Alternatively, pink can be equally drawn out with matching bold colours such as orange or even black. Pink is completely versatile, and we look forward to seeing what you have achieved with your Dusky Pink furniture!
