Too many homeowners are afraid to go bold when it comes to paint colors. And frankly, I don’t blame them. It’s hard to commit to painting your living room turquoise or apricot when you think about how many hours a day you spend in that room. What if you choose the wrong shade? What if you get sick of it? Will people think you’re crazy if you paint your living room orange? While I don’t want to deter anyone from choosing a bright and bold color (as opposed to a safe and expected neutral), I understand that it’s a difficult decision. So, my recommendation for all of you homeowners lusting after bright colors but too afraid to take the plunge is to start with a bathroom. A bathroom is the perfect place to go bold. You don’t spend a lot of time in your bathroom (I hope!), you aren’t dealing with as much wall space, and you don’t have to make the room blend in with any nearby spaces (since it’s cut off with a door). Today, we’ve chosen some of our favorite paint colors for bathrooms. They’re eye-catching, they’re elegant, and I hope they inspire you to choose an out-of-the-ordinary color.
Paint Colors for Bathrooms
If you’ve always wanted to try orange but weren’t brave enough to paint your living room or bedroom orange, why not the bathroom? Choose your shade carefully because orange is an easy color to get wrong. Take your time, bring home paint chips, and test the shade in different lighting. Your best bet will be an orange that’s muted and a little on the rusty side. Steer away from oranges that match the color of clementines or pumpkins. Orange is bold enough on its own; even in a muted shade, it will have a big impact.
Yellow is such a cheery, joyful color, it works well in all rooms of the house. It’s especially great in small bathrooms or those with little natural light because the color mimics sunlight. If you want to tone down that sunniness, try pairing it with black or dark brown furnishings, like in the photo above. Or if you want to amplify it, try adding some bright patterns to the room with your towels or curtains.
Regal, royal purple is a very elegant choice for a bathroom. If you’re looking for something feminine and soft, this is the perfect choice. I love it in a darker purple, muted, and with a hint of gray. To make it look more glamorous, add some sparkly furnishings.
This soft blue with a hint of green is incredibly popular right now for all rooms of the house, but I think it works especially well in the bathroom. Reminiscent of the sky, it really brightens the room and adds a lot of light. Plus, it works well with a variety of accent colors.
For a more dramatic look, try a deep red. This color is not for the faint of heart, but if you’re feeling a bit daring, it really packs a punch. To soften it, add a patterned window treatment or shower curtain. Flowers or another plant with also help tone down the harshness. But if you like the drama, include a lot of straight, blunt lines (like you can see in the mirror and sink above).
If you’d rather keep the color natural and relaxing, how about a lovely sage green? This color is still bold, but it won’t feel like you’re jumping too far outside your comfort zone if you’re used to beiges and whites. If you love being out in nature, this is a great way to bring the outdoors into your home.
I hope one of these paint colors for bathrooms stuck out for you, but if not, maybe they at least inspired you to check out more shades of a certain color. Maybe you like the idea of the green above, for example, but sage isn’t quite right for you. You could look into a minty green or more of a blue-green.
