The best paint colors for bathrooms depend upon the space itself. As you’re trying to select the best color for your bathroom, consider the amount of light you get in your space. Color will change in the presence, or absense, of natural and artificial light—so testing color samples on your walls is essential. Many bathrooms have very little natural light, so if that’s the case for your bathroom, you might want to try lighter colors like Opal Silk Green or Swan White.

Many people enjoy a spa-inspired bathroom. It’s relaxing, clean and inviting. Incorporate colors like blue, grey and teal to capture that calming atmosphere. To really bring the look and feel of a weekend retreat into your bathroom, start with a sea-inspired paint color that sets the tone and makes an impact. Eggshell is an excellent color choice for walls if you’re looking to keep it simple. And white is always a classic choice for molding and trim. There are other color options too. Blues and greens are calm and soothing. A soft grey can be a pleasant neutral and a bright teal can be energizing.

Paint isn’t the only way to bring color into your bathroom. Towels, window shades and curtains can jazz up a neutral grey or white palette, giving a space a shot of personality.

If you’re up for a DIY challenge, use tiles to create a backsplash that takes a bathroom from simple to sensational. Swan White works as a perfect neutral for colorful accents like the one above. There are so many choices for bathroom colors that it might seem impossible to choose just one. Take your time and have some fun along the way—you’ll find the perfect bathroom paint color in no time.
