The Best Paint Colors for Bathrooms 2020
If you’re looking to transform your bathroom into a spa-like retreat, or it simply looking to give it a refresh, you’re going to love these paint colors.
While you can, of course, paint your bathroom any color you like, the best paint colors for bathrooms are soft muted shades of green and blue. Why? They are calming and relaxing.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to start my day in a room with a paint coloring that’s screaming in my face. I also don’t want to end my day getting ready for bed by staring at black, red or aggressively yellow walls.
These soft and serene paint colors will start and end your day off right!
I’ve painted our bathrooms multiple times over the years, and suggested countless paint colors to my e-design clients for their bathrooms. Without fail, these paint colors have remained the tried and true favorites about the past 6 years years…and for good reason!
How Do You Spend Time in Your Bathroom?
The bathroom is a deeply personal space and the answer to this question may partially dictate the paint color you choose. If you are simply looking for a paint color for a small guest powder room, you can afford to go bold. If it’s a kid’s bathroom, maybe a more saturated color would be fun. However, if this bathroom is your space to relax, take a bath or long shower and unwind at the end of a long work day, then you’ll want to choose colors that help evoke that mood.
The Best Bathroom Paint Colors
- Green – light, muted shades of green are calming and relaxing. They have a sense of bringing the outdoors in.
- Gray – gray paint colors are fresh, modern and don’t need to feel cold. Choose warmer hues to offset lots of white in a bathroom.
- Blue – you can’t help but feel relaxed when surrounded by blue. Try shades of blue-gray for a real spa-like feel.
- Light Beige – Warmer than gray, but still has that neutral feeling that is classic.
- White – paired with warm wood tones or a blue vanity is truly stunning
Whether you favor neutrals, greens, grays or blues, pick a paint color for your bathroom that flows with the rest of your house, energizes the space without being too bold, and yet also creates a sense of calm.
