Ah, the old design myth that crisp white paint will make tiny rooms, like small bathrooms and vanities, look much larger. Sure, it rings true sometimes, but it’s definitely not the only option. Sometimes the best way to make a small bathroom more spacious is to enhance it with dark, bright or experimental colors. To open everyone up to the vast world of small bathroom paint colors, we’ve highlighted our favorite shades below. From neutral shades to moody hues and vibrant pops, you’ll find a little bathroom paint color idea to inspire your weekend home project (because small space = less painting time, so you can actually do it in a day! !).
1 soft purple
Color blocking is a great way to play with color if you don’t want to cover the entire room in an experimental hue. Here, Heidi Caillier chose a muted purple for the line of chairs below to give the rustic farmhouse bathroom a more romantic touch.
2 light gray
For such a small dresser, a mirror hanging at an angle above a corner sink maximizes every inch (and the clutter can be hidden behind the fabric skirt). Wedgwood plates and round accent table help counteract the boxwood feel and add charm. To add a little more sparkle and intrigue, the walls are painted in a soothing light gray. Perabot Unik
3 forest green
With a slim cylindrical sink and single pendant light, this bathroom is perfectly proportioned. But since there’s no room for decorative extras and even essential pieces can’t take up too much space, the only way to make a powerful design move is with an eye-catching paint color. We’re digging the forest green shade chosen by Fiona Lynch Studio. Household appliances & Furniture
4 red wine
This bathroom designed by ETC.etera for Firehouse Hotel is the perfect balance between the serious and the particular, the exclusive and the modern. Wine-red cabinets are the focal point of the bathroom, accented with marigold zellige tiles. Together they create a story of warm colors.
5 crunchy white
Okay, we know we said we’d stay away from white, but here’s proof that sometimes it’s really the best option for small bathrooms. Alexander M. Reid opted for a bright, bright white for this traditional bathroom, then added touches of blue for a classic combination. Graphic floor tiles enliven you and white walls make a perfect backdrop for the artwork gallery. Perabot Rumah Tangga
6 light green
The floral border sink vanity and complementary green painted walls make every day feel like a fresh spring morning in this cheerful Madcap Cottage bathroom. The two shades of green paint speak to the many shades of the floral fabric skirt and wallpaper. Property News
