Bathrooms are the perfect spot to experiment with color. They are smaller than other rooms and primarily out of sight. If you’ve been wondering how to make a statement in your bathroom with paint, the experts at Red Star Paint are sharing some of our favorite ideas.
Use an Unexpected Color
Using a surprising color, like bright yellow, will make the bathroom appear more spacious. Yellow is also a great way to make a room feel cheery. This is especially true for bathrooms that get little natural light. We love the way Sunny Days brightens a room. Pair this happy hue with cream or eggshell-colored floors for a polished appearance.
Painting the cabinetry in your bathroom is an easy way to give the entire room a facelift. Shades of blue and green evoke calm and relaxing moods, making them ideal for areas where you start and end your day. A light sage color, like Four Leaf Clover, will pop against darker walls, while a deeper hue, such as Amazon Moss, will stand out against light-colored walls. If you prefer soothing shades of blue in your bathroom, consider Florida Keys blue or the darker Tucson Teal.
A monochromatic color scheme works well for any size bathroom. Another perk is that you can choose any color family you like. If you’re not a fan of bold hues, you can use shades of white. There are hundreds of different shades of white, so you’re not short on options. You can also create visual layers of interest by using textures on your window treatments, bathmats, and towels.
Create an Intimate Space
Since dark colors make a space feel smaller, you can make any bathroom feel cozier by using darker shades on the walls and cabinetry. Like the monochromatic route, you can choose any shade that speaks to you. However, deep neutral or gray shades are best if you want to elevate your bathroom to a more sophisticated aesthetic. We recommend Deep Taupe or Midnight Oil. Dark colors look fantastic paired with vinyl flooring with a finish mimicking the appearance of darker hardwood.
Painting the floor in your bathroom is faster and easier than replacing it, and you can create fun patterns or go with the classic checkered tile look. If you decide to paint your floor, ensure it has been thoroughly cleaned, sanded, and primed before you begin painting. We suggest finishing up with a sealant to protect the finish.
