Your bathroom is the first place that you visit after you wake up in the morning. Hence, you need to paint it in a way that not only helps you rise and shine, but re-energizes you for the rest of the day. However, that doesn’t mean that you choose a shocking blue or a fluorescent yellow that just bolts you out of your sleep. Painting a bathroom requires as much care and consideration as other rooms. Also, it is important to choose a high quality paint for longer life and better feel. Coating your bathroom with the right hue can add style, ambiance and character to your bathing space. So depending on whether you want your bathroom to look contemporary or timeless, add a sense of space to it or shrink it, you should pick your palette. Remember, the color scheme you choose should create the desired mood, must look natural and comfortable, and should make your skin look good. Here are some options for bathroom paint colors.
This is the most common choice for small and dark bathrooms. Not only does it look classy, but bright too. You can highlight white with pink, peach or yellow undertones. The resultant effect would be a subtle tint that will keep the room from looking too stark and blank.
Team this cool color with slight shimmery undertones that will glisten instead of looking glum and drab. The hint of shimmer will create an optical illusion of shifting sunlight. Result — a cool and elegant looking bathroom that looks spacious too.
Pink is a very serene color that tends to recede, but it is the rosiness that warms the room. Pink also flatters most complexions. You can fix yellow bulbs to complement the color with the lighting and use pink bulbs to minimize wrinkles and make people look younger.
Yellow, the color of sunshine is another ideal color for bathrooms. You can choose from buttercream to pale to Venetian gold and more. If your bathroom doesn’t receive adequate natural sunlight, yellow is the color to go for. Paint the trims of your bathroom in crisp white and the walls in light shades for best effect.
This is the coolest color for a bathroom as aqua walls make a room glow. You can try various shades in a mix of blue and green. Aqua will bring in the expansive feel of a tropical sea to your bath space. Paint the walls in pale aqua to make the bathroom look spacious. For a warm hue, mix aqua with gold.
