repainting your bathroom is an easy decision to make because it is also easy to correct in case you do not get tired of the chosen color soon, but above all, because it is an inexpensive change, quick to carry out and with a brutal effect. But there are other changes that you can also make relatively easily and without overspending. Do you want to see them? Well, keep reading.

GREEN I WANT YOU GREEN

Pantone chose greenery as the star color of 2022 and, several years later, it is still a choice 10. It is a vital and fresh alternative to painting the bathroom in color, to which you can give a sophisticated touch by combining it with golds. Here, in addition, the “color-block” has been chosen and even the furniture is green. 

THERE ARE AS MANY GREENS AS THERE ARE BATHROOMS

If you have already seen that green works well, you should know that, in the bathroom, it does so in any of its shades. And there are materials that will help you take it to places where a conventional plaster wall cannot be installed. Thus, microcement is a new material that allows it to be tinted with various pigments that help bring color, even to furniture. 

COLOR YES, BUT AT TWO HEIGHTS

Color also triumphs in small bathrooms, but what to do so that it is not overwhelming and makes the space too small? Paint the walls in color at different heights, as in this proposal. And the ceilings, better white. 

A GRAY AND WOODEN BATHROOM

Gray brings a serene and stately touch to this  rustic bathroom . This is achieved by the color that has been chosen for the walls: anthracite gray, which is one of the most “solemn” colors that we can choose. The wood in the rest of the decoration raises the temperature and installs this bathroom in its most mountain side. 

BATHROOMS IN PEARL GRAY, ELEGANT AND BRIGHT

How soft and how much light gives off this bathroom that needed clarity due to the wooden walls, which darken the environment. This pearl gray color is delicate and offers an exquisite result. And it is that light gray works like white, in terms of clarity, it receives the light and bounces it, but nuanced.

GREYISH BLUE, THE BEST OPTION FOR MOUNTAIN BATHS

If you want a warm and cozy space, pay attention to this idea to paint the bathroom walls. Surround them with wood paneling and paint it a grayish blue. It is a bright, elegant color and perfect even for a small bathroom like this one.

Petrol gray is perfect for spaces with a classic touch, but also in rustic spaces like this one. Combined with wood it is warm and welcoming. Of course, this color is only for very spacious bathrooms or those that receive a lot of natural light because it is a tone with a lot of presence.

A BLACK BATHROOM, WHY NOT?

Yes. A very high ceiling helps make an exquisite combination. White tiles and toilets will help keep black from looking so powerful, while wood accents help warm the whole. The contrast between the two causes the white to still look much whiter. 

A PINK BATHROOM, HOW FEMININE!

Pink is one of the most popular colors to decorate. It gives a chic and very, very modern touch. In addition, it is also a feminine, cozy, sophisticated color and perfect for a small bathroom in which light is sought. If you combine it with gold details, the effect will be very glam. 

A BLUE AND WHITE BATHROOM

Blue is one of the most popular colors in the bathrooms of the “Mueblers” (the readers of El Mueble, of course). And it is that it is a choice with which you will hardly be wrong. It is fresh and bright, and in a tone as intense as this one, it welcomes.

CAN THE TILES BE PAINTED?

Clear! The paint is not only suitable for tiled walls up to medium height. It is also suitable for tiled walls up to the ceiling. Choose special tile paint. Not only will it grip perfectly, but it will also hold up to moisture well. Do you want to know how to paint bathroom tiles ?

Mint green is a tone that is not lacking in details or trendy spaces. It’s cool, smooth, and very happy. Here we have chosen not only to paint the walls but also the carpentry and even the old-style bathtub. Unique.

COLORS IN THE BATHROOM THAT ARE ONLY FOR THE DARING

This combination to paint the bathroom walls is for daring and free spirits: a piece of furniture with a certain rococo air, a large mirror, teardrop lamp, gray mid-height tiles, hydraulic mosaic floor and … fuchsia on the walls! Risky but, really, it is scary. Look at more examples of classic bathrooms like this one, you’re going to fall in love!

A TAUPE BATHROOM, A SAFE BET

If you do not dare to give your walls a powerful color, stay in the range of grays that tend to brown. They give warmth while decorating with style. Here, the taupe color of the paint also stains the furniture in this bathroom decorated by Iñaki Mújika.

A CREAM-COLORED BATHROOM, A CLASSIC THAT ALWAYS WORKS

Beige tones, more or less intense, and sand , always triumph. In timeless or rustic-style bathrooms they look great because they add warmth to the environment. In addition, they are long-lasting and last perfect for longer than lighter colors. 

SOFT YELLOW, PERFECT FOR BRINGING WARMTH

bathroom painting ideas-17

In a large bathroom, painting the walls white can be a risky option because it is cold and expands the space too much. So you can use a soft yellow, like this one, to bring warmth without losing luminosity. 

COLOR-BLOCK IN THE BATHROOM

bathroom painting ideas-18

Not only paint the walls, also choose the tiles of the same color and take the roller to the doors. The effect is 100% enveloping and beautiful. To choose this option, it is best to have a bathroom with lots of natural light because, depending on the tone you choose, it can make the space somewhat smaller.

HOW TO PAINT SMALL BATHROOMS?

The blue light works very well because it produces an effect of “distance” between the walls, which visually wide space. In addition, it transmits serenity, privacy and relaxation, ideal sensations for an intimate space such as the bathroom.

  1. I find strong green, orange, and yellow on the walls are very unflattering when I’m trying to prep for the day in a small bathroom. Other people may have a similar experience with other colors.

    But I love most of the rooms in this article! I have several (small) bathrooms in dire need of re-doing, and I am thinking of going bold and dark in at least one of them!
