When it comes to choosing colors to paint a bathroom, some designers recommend cooler shades of paint colors to make the bathroom looks wider. But you need to make sure that your bathroom gets enough natural light because cool colors tend to make the room looks gloomy without it. Warm colors might stimulate sunlight, but they tend the make the room looks smaller. Don’t be overwhelmed, we’re here to help. Here are some best colors to paint your bathroom, based on designers’ recommendation:
If you want a classic, timeless look, white is the perfect color to paint your bathroom walls. If pure, bright white feels too stark for your taste, choose white with a pink, peach or yellow undertone. To avoid boredom, try to add some accent such as sky blue, pale yellow, or try to decorate the bathroom with wood accessories.
2) Pearl Gray
Most of the gray paint colors are dull and will make your bathroom looks cramped. But pale, pearly gray with a slight shimmery undertone glistens instead of looking boring. The shimmer will make you imagine sunlight, make the overall look is elegant and stylish, as well as spacious.
3) Pale Pink
Pale pink is the best combination of cool and warm color tones, but be careful not to choose a too-powdery pink. Pale colors provide serenity, while its rosy shade warms the room up. Pick your pink very carefully. Pink with yellow undertones will reflect the sunlight, and pink with blue undertones will be rather cold. Pink also flatters complexions.
As the color of sunshine, yellow will always warm up your bathroom even if it doesn’t have enough natural light. You can choose various shades of yellow, such as buttercream, pale yellow, Venetian gold, or Tuscany yellow. However, if you have a rather small bathroom, you can't paint it with too bright color or it will look smaller. Choose the lighter shades and mix them with white trim.
This is a cool paint color that will make your room looks glowing. It’s perfect for a coastal look, as the fusion of blue and green color will provide the feel and imagination of the tropical sea. To make your bathroom looks bigger, paint the walls with pale aqua. You can mix it with pale yellow trim or white ones to warm up space. Try to decorate your bathroom with a gilded antique mirror and illuminate it with warm light bulbs.
