Bathroom Paint Colors

Bathroom Colors Guide

Redecorating or remodeling a bathroom leaves you facing a range of decisions - especially when it comes to choosing bathroom colors.
You must choose the type of flooring to fixtures and furnishings. However, one of the very first things you'll want to think about is the bathroom paint colors, as these will help influence the appearance and design of everything else. To help you out before you buy paint online, here's a short list of some of the most popular colors for bathrooms (and how to use them):

Bathroom Colors Guide

Ash Grey

A light, ash grey bathroom color like In The Shadows can be an outstanding choice for more modern spaces and pairs perfectly with stylish marble or granite countertops. Still, it's usually a good idea to choose lighter colored wood or tiles for the floor and lighter colored countertops to keep the room from feeling too dark or gloomy. Another option is to use pure white trim, or use the same white on one wall to help break up the darker grey color. Combined with sleek modern lighting and furnishings, an ash grey bathroom color like In The Shadows ensures a bathroom full of contemporary style and charm.

Powder Blue

Whether it is used on an accent wall or you paint the entire bathroom in this color, a powder blue bathroom color like Bit Of Heaven can be a fantastic choice for a more traditional feel. As powder blue is slightly darker than a sky blue, you'll want to avoid using too many dark furnishings or fixtures unless you add in more white or other lighter bathroom colors to balance it out. One option is to use white trim and fixtures combined with a darker grey for the countertop.

This warm, rich yellow bathroom color has long been a favorite for bedrooms and kitchens, but it also makes an excellent choice for bathrooms. The color is sure to instantly brighten up any darker bathroom, making it feel bigger and more inviting. For an added touch, you may want to consider using brass or bronze fixtures to add an extra layer of richness and style to a room painted in Turner's Yellow.

Bright and Bold

Another popular choice for bathroom colors is a rich teal. Depending on the overall size of your bathroom, you may want to consider leaving one wall white or using a contrasting color to ensure the teal isn't too overwhelming. A color like Aloha often works best with white cabinets and fixtures, although you should consider using a slightly darker grey or beige color for the countertops to balance things out.
