So, you want to paint your bathroom? Whether you are looking for a soothing oasis, a modern vibe or a pristine latrine we have the color for you.
As a paint company (non-toxic at that!), we see a lot of paint colors in a lot of combinations in a lot of spaces. Some work better than others. So we've rounded up our absolute favorite colors for all kinds of different spaces. Today? We are talking bathrooms. What makes a good color for a bathroom? Well, it depends on what look you like, but one thing is important regardless: it has to be flattering. That's right. It needs to be a color that will create a flattering type of light regardless of the time of day, light source used, etc. And so, here are our all time favorite paint colors for a bathroom, beauty (and safety!) guaranteed:
1. Classic White:
It's a crowd pleaser. It speaks of cleanliness (a must in a bathroom). It's bright and will always work regardless of the space. Our bright white, Whisper, is the perfect white to create this type of bathroom look. Crisp, clean and ready for any accessories you choose.
2. Not so classic White:
Still white, still clean. But not so stark. A warmer white will also create a beautiful bathroom, but lends itself well for more rustic spaces with warmer accents (like this wood floor). Our warm white cuddle is a beautiful choice that will add just the right amount of lightness to your space.
3. Light Gray
One of my favorite choices is a light gray like our color Mist. When used with white it still gives a bathroom that clean, crisp feeling, but feels updated and modern. I love it with a splash of color in the towels. Mist is the lightest of grays which provides a nice contrast to a bright white. Try it with Whisper to create a bathroom like this.
Black is becoming more and more popular in all kinds of spaces, and why not the bathroom? It provides a great backdrop for color (like that beautiful painting with the pop of yellow), is modern and envelopes a room with deep color. It creates a luxurious feeling for the room. Our Vintage Tux is a black with just the right amount of fading. It isn't true black so it won't feel like too much. It's just almost, oh so close to black in the perfect way. Again, using it with a bright white like whisper is a great way to add depth.
5. A light and soft yellow:
When using yellow make sure you use a warmer one without any green behind it (which can make the space feel sickly). Our color Melt is a great yellow for a bathroom with the right amount of warmth and pigment. It's soft and sweet and oh so flattering.
6. Just the right blue-green:
If you are looking for a little more pigment pick a color that is soothing while being saturated like our color Torn Skirt. It's perfect next to a crisp white and gives color without being harsh.
7. A great neutral:
Oh neutrals, what a bad rap you've been given lately. People tend to think of them as boring or bland, but when the right one is chosen they are anything but. Our color Puff, one of our best sellers, is a lovely neutral. It would be perfect in a bathroom going for a little color and warmth.
8. True Gray:
Talk about a popular color. Grays are really in right now and there's no question as to why. They are beautiful and rich and lovely. They are timeless and not a color you will easily tire of. Try our color Fedora if you think a bold gray like this is the right choice for you. Be sure to add touches of crisp white to keep the space feeling fresh.
And last but not least... a light blue with just a touch of gray and green. Our color Seaglass is by far our best selling color and perfect for many spaces, including a bathroom. If you want to create a soothing oasis and don't want to use all white, this is the choice for you. It's soft and subtle, but still classic.
And there you have it. Our nine favorite colors for the bathroom.
Later this week we will share our favorite kitchen colors!
