The bathroom is an excellent space in which to experiment with bold pops of color. Why? First of all, the area is small and contained, so it doesn't matter if the hues you use there match the rest of your apartment decor. Secondly, it's always fun to add some pep to a utilitarian space that you'll be utilizing every day, several times a day (hey, we're just being real!). If you love the color pink and are looking to use it in your bathroom, you're in luck—there are plenty of ways to incorporate the shade into this space without having to coat your walls with paint. Below are 14 of our favorite methods to pinkify your loo ASAP.

    If your bathroom has enough space for a stand-alone storage cabinet, choose a piece featuring a pink hue—or make over a thrifted find using your favorite paint. Inside, stash things like extra toilet paper, wash cloths, and hand towels.
