People looking to improve their homes can count on HGTV’s Dave and Jenny Marrs’ advice for which colors will look good and how to include those hues. So, when Jenny Marrs supports using a specific color in a bathroom, you should trust her judgment, even if that hue seems unconventional. For instance, the expert proved that pink can look beautiful in modern bathrooms in an episode of “Fixer to Fabulous.”

In the episode, Dave and Jenny showed the couple that the episode focused on their new bathroom featuring light pink tile, and they adored it. “You had told me I could go pink, and I did. This tile, because it’s not solid pink, it has that white mixed in, and it just feels like it’s handmade. It all has unique variations, and I think it makes it a little more subtle, not so in-your-face pink. But it’s also really fun and really pretty,” Marrs said (via YouTube). Don’t be afraid to take inspiration from the show and add retro pink details to your bathroom for a calming yet playful upgrade.

Pink tile is lovely for bathrooms

An excellent way to add a splash of pink to your bathroom is to add pink tile, as seen in the “Fixer to Fabulous” episode. If you worry that bright pink will appear too intense, opt for a pale pink or a blend of white and pink like Jenny Marrs suggests. “I love the pink! Love it! It is gorgeous. It’s retro — it has a little bit of a retro feel. I could see myself taking a bath, reading a book,” the woman seeing the upgraded bathroom for the first time in the episode said, per YouTube. So, why not embellish your bathroom with gentle pink tile?

If you’re looking for a light pink tile, you may want to check out the Bedrosians Cloe 5 inch-by-5 inch Ceramic Tile, available for $10.19 per square foot at Wayfair. The water-resistant soft pink tile has 4.9 out of five stars, with around 140 reviews. On the other hand, the beloved Ivy Hill Tile Fusion Hex Pink Terrazzo 9.13 inch-by-10.51 inch Matte Porcelain Floor and Wall Tile (8.07 square foot case) is available for $7.99 per square foot or $64.48 per case at Home Depot and is a gorgeous option for anyone who prefers the pink and white look. The geometric tiles have 4.7 stars and an 88% recommendation rate.

Other ways to incorporate pink into your bathroom

Sometimes, all it takes is a stylish bath mat or rug to revamp your bathroom. If you like pink, look for a pink bath mat or rug! For instance, the Wayfair Basics Brassfield Bath Rug comes in a beautiful rose pink color for $21.99 at Wayfair and has 4.5 stars with more than 1,200 reviews. The rug lets you add a stunning pink accent to your bathroom for around $20 if you don’t want to spend the time and money on new tiles.

Shower curtains are convenient for adding pink to the bathroom if you want more pink than just a rug or mat but still don’t want to put in all the effort you would need to install new tiles. The blush pink Urban Habitat Kay Cotton Pom-Pom Shower Curtain is available for $28.99 at Target. That light muted pink shower curtain features an adorable polka dot design and has 4.4 stars.

If you want to take the pink look even further, consider getting a pink toilet seat, such as the Elongated Closed Front Enameled Wood Toilet Seat in Venetian Pink Removes for Easy Cleaning, selling for $19.54 at Home Depot. The pink toilet seat has 4.6 stars with over 1,200 reviews. Thus, whether you opt for a pink bath mat, shower curtain, or seat for the throne, pink details can turn up the charm in your bathroom.
