Bathroom Ideas - Finding The Right Color For Your Space

Turn a blah bathroom into a serene spa or a modern oasis with the right paint colors!

Looking for some great bathroom ideas for your space? Relax, we are here to help. Bathrooms used to be designed for functionality, with little regard for beauty and aesthetics, and paint colors, flooring, and accessories reflected that. However, making a bathroom a peaceful retreat for relaxing, or turning it into a pleasant space for getting ready in the morning is becoming more and more appealing to home owners. Here are some great bathroom colors that can change the entire feel and theme of your bathroom.

Bathroom Colors

Bathroom Color - White Sage

A soft, delicate green color can inspire tranquility and bring in a feeling of nature to a bathroom, and White Sage is a beautiful option to use. Complemented by both natural light and artificial light, the pale green of White Sage is soft enough to look great most skin tones for getting ready in the morning, and it creates the perfect atmosphere for unwinding after a long day. This is a color that can be paired with a wide array of trims and colors, but deep, rich chocolate brown and soft, creamy whites will continue the nature theme and add to the soothing feeling of the bathroom.

Bathroom Color - Soleil

Soleil is a gorgeous pale cocoa color that makes a lovely backdrop in a small bathroom or a bathroom that does not get much natural lighting. Warm without being dark, this is a shade that can open up a room and make it feel bright and will provide a calming feel, even with artificial light. This paint shade is especially good when used in areas where you may be applying make-up as the warm neutral even complements skin tones.

Bathroom Colors

Bathroom Color - Alaskan Blue

Alaskan Blue is a medium shade of blue that has a sophisticated coolness to it. This is a color that would work well in a guest powder room or a master bathroom, especially when paired with brushed nickel or silver accessories and crisp, white trim. If you are seeking a cool, calming color to create a spa feel in your bathroom, this is a great option, too.

Bathroom Color - Gray Stone

Gray continues to be a very popular paint choice for nearly every room in the house, and there is good cause. It lends a sophisticated and modern feel to nearly any room and it looks great with a wide array of other colors, giving you a lot of options for decorating. Gray Stone is a cool silvery-gray that can make your bathroom feel like a modern spa without feeling busy or jarring. It looks beautiful with crisp white trim, but you can also pair Gray Stone with a pale blue or pale pink color to create a serene environment. If you prefer drama, try a vivid blue, such as Cobalt Glaze.
Painting is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to change the feel of a space. However, when you are choosing a bathroom colors, be sure to take into account the lighting the room receive and the colors in the flooring. Finding the right color can easily transform a drab, dated bathroom into a gorgeous retreat, so take your time to decide what will work the best for your home.
