Picking out bathroom paint colors is a unique challenge. It might sound surprising, but we’d argue that there are more factors to consider when painting a bathroom than there are with any other wall painting project. You’ve got to consider style, of course, but you also need to think about how your paint color will affect the spatial appearance of the room. And since the bathroom has the most specific purpose of any room in your house, you’ve got to consider function as well.
It’s always important to know how to paint a room in such a way that enhances its size. This is especially true for bathrooms, which (other than closets) are typically the smallest rooms in your house. If you’re feeling bold, try painting the ceiling a bright color. If you’re not so adventurous, try combining two sharp hues, but make use of negative space. This is one of the most effective ways to make a room seem larger. You can also replace ceiling-mounted light fixtures with ones that go above the mirror. This creates a cleaner look that adds visual space. Last, consider a shower curtain that’s the same shade as the paint you’ve chosen.
Bathroom style could be the subject of an entire series of blog posts, so we’ll just point out a few of our favorite paint colors for 2015. If you’re a fan of Benjamin Moore paint colors, check out the “Sun-Kissed Orange Bathroom” color palette. It has a fresh and clean feel that’s perfect for bathrooms, and we love the way that the “Opaline” shade works on the ceiling and opens up the entire room. If you’re painting a master bathroom, check out “Black Tie Bath,” a gorgeously classy palette of Behr paint colors. We love the combination of “Beluga,” “Soft Lace,” and “Sterling.”
Many of the rooms in your house serve multiple functions. Kitchens are for food preparation, but they’re often the place where you eat breakfast, and if you’re cooking with friends, they’re a social area, too. Bathrooms have a much more specific purpose, and it’s important to consider that. Of all the “vibes” your bathroom can give off, we think cleanliness is the most important. A bathroom that looks clean will make guests feel more at home. You’ll also appreciate that clean feeling every morning, since the bathroom is often the place where you start your day. Bright colors are the best way to accomplish a clean, fresh vibe, so start your paint color search there.
