Looking for paint color ideas for bathrooms? We’ve consulted interior designers and paint experts to discover the best shades guaranteed to elevate any bathroom color scheme.
Paint color ideas for bathrooms come in all hues, from calm and relaxing to bright and bold, so there’s something for everyone.
Bathrooms can often be neglected when it comes to color, with white being the default 'safe' shade chosen by many. However, things have moved on somewhat and instead of just being a functional room, bathrooms are becoming places to relax in style. With that movement, we're seeing bolder bathroom trends where color is used more liberally to express personality.
“We’re seeing a demand for people injecting their own style and personality into their bathrooms, and there’s no sign of this slowing down for 2023,” says Emma Bestley, co-founder of YesColours.
"When deciding on colors, it's important to consider the fittings and fixtures already in place in your bathroom," advises Paula Taylor, head stylist of paint specialists Graham & Brown. "Rich navy and green are a good choice for complementing metallics, such as silver tap faucets, to accentuate the overall look of your bathroom."
With that in mind, here are the expert-recommended paint colors that will bring your bathroom up to date.
