Get inspired by these bathroom color ideas and include the master and guest bathrooms in your upcoming interior painting project.
Relaxing Blues and Greens
Blues and greens, when accented with whites or wood tones, offer a relaxing, natural look that many spas try to emulate.
Blues combined with whites can bring the big beautiful sky indoors or remind you of the sea. Green shades with wood accents can feel like a cabin in the woods or a homey retreat.
Think about how you want guests to feel in your bathroom – relaxed, energized, earthy, or carefree – and build your painting color scheme around it. Blues and greens offer an infinite spectrum of color schemes.
Versatile Gray Bathroom Color Ideas
It used to be that gray paint colors were earmarked for industrial or utilitarian spaces. Oh, but grays can be so adaptable from stylish to sensible, traditional to luxurious.
Dark grays or charcoals combined with white or light gray accents offer a cozy feel that many love. Lighter shades, with white or other light grays, meld into a marble look that delivers elegance and class.
Want something more dramatic? Gray bathroom paint colors can be paired with almost any other color including vivid reds, cheerful yellows, and sleek blues.
Dramatic and Colorful Baths
Are you ready for something bold? Deep purple with white accents is empowering and majestic. Make sure you have plenty of light in the bathroom if you make this choice. The depth of the purple draws the room in, creating a comforting space, and is perfect for larger bathrooms.
Another daring choice is the warmth of a terracotta like Sherwin-Williams color of the year (2019), Cavern Clay. This bright earth tone is great when you use the mirror, as it works with all light sources and skin tones.
The Classic Neutrals
Beige, tan, and taupe are warm neutrals that combine to create one of the most relaxing bathroom color ideas you can choose. Add black and/or white accents and your bathroom takes on the look of a vintage photo. As nature-inspired neutrals, they work with any trim color you can imagine.
White tones can be fresh and invigorating while reflecting more light. But be careful. Pure white rooms run the risk of washing you out in the mirror and may affect shaving or makeup application. Choose a warm white or add it as an accent to soften the effect.
Yes, You Can Paint Your Bathroom Black!
Black is serious, mysterious, and elegant. It is a wonderful choice for a master bathroom, especially with an abundance of natural light.
Choose a white trim for a pristine look. The dark shade pulls the room in, while the white prevents the room from becoming claustrophobic. The combination is also simple to keep clean.
