It might be the smallest room in the house, but your bathroom is likely the place where you start and end your day, so the paint colors and overall feel of the space are actually more important than you might think. Likewise, its smaller square footage makes the bathroom an easy and inexpensive room to makeover with color.
Choosing the best paint colors for your bathroom will depend on the type of space you want to create.
Cool & Relaxing Home Spa
If you love the spa feel, but crave more color than the traditional all-white bath, cool colors, such as light blue, gray or pale green can transform your space into a calm and tranquil retreat. Even just one accent wall of color can refresh a room. And since cool colors tend to recede, a small bathroom painted in these hues will appear larger than it actually is.
Warm & Inviting Retreat
A warmer color palette is perfect for those who prefer the sun and heat. After all, there’s nothing like a sunny yellow powder room to help you wake up and embrace the day. However, yellows can wash out some skin tones, so consider soft pinks, light tans, peaches, even a terra cotta paint color for a similar feeling of warmth.
Bold & Dramatic Bath
Darker colors, often discouraged in small rooms for their ability to enclose a space, are no longer forbidden in bathrooms. Especially if your fixtures are white, rich jewel tones or deep earth tones can make the space feel luxurious and cozy. Consider a deep blue, plum, dark forest green or rich chocolate.
Need Help Painting Your Bathroom? Hire a Professional Painter.
Bathrooms are self-contained spaces, and people don’t usually spend a lot of time in them, so they’re an excellent place to try something a little bit daring. However, it’s important to remember that, unlike other rooms in the house, a bathroom’s “furniture” is not easily moved, and walls need to be properly prepped for moisture and humidity.
