White continues to be a popular color choice for bathrooms for a few reasons. The first is because white looks clean and, of course, a cleaner bathroom is more desirable. The second is because, in small spaces, white—and other light colors—can make a space feel bigger. There’s no reason to be constrained to it though! If you want to try something new, we’re all for it! A little more color in the form of a new coat of paint can definitely refresh your space. Here are bathroom colors you may want to consider:

1. Blue

If you’re not ready to go too bold with your colors, blue may be the hue for you. In its darker shades, it comes close to becoming a more muted color while still retaining a hint of color. It’s a softer alternative to grays and blacks and works well as an accent in a bathroom with white finishes—like the one shown above.

Create a tranquil space with a blue wall, light wood, and some greenery in a bathroom. All these elements together will feel like you’ve brought nature into your home.

2. Purple

Evoke the calming feeling of a bright and breezy day in the middle of lavender fields with purple walls. To add visual interest to your bathroom, try pairing your soft-colored walls with striking details. In the photo above, the mosaic teal tiles elevate the rather sparse bathroom. Potted plants breathe life into the room as well.

Meanwhile, the strong black lines of this purple bathroom immediately catch the eye and the fuchsia rug makes a great accent and finishing touch.

3. Pink or peach

Pink and peach can be a unique, delicate color for bathrooms. It can bring warmth and contrast to cold, stainless bathroom fixtures. For example, in the bathroom above, the pastel pink wall beautifully balances out the gray shower tiles and vanity top. Being a soft color, it’s also able to brighten up small spaces and rooms with little to no windows.

Check out this peach bathroom too! In this one, focus is placed on the wall color as the rest of the hues introduced in the room are more subtle such as the light gray and light wood decor and white tub.

4. Taupe

A muted color palette in neutral hues—one with a dominant taupe in it, for example—can help you relax. The bathroom above feels both cozy and luxurious at the same time. Who wouldn’t want that, right? The black wall-mounted lights make great additions to the space as well and stand out against their muted backdrop.

5. Color Combo

Can’t pick between two hues? Maybe you don’t have to. Try something a little off the beaten path and go with two wall paint colors. Just make sure they go well together. A safer choice would be to follow the example above and go with a neutral color, such as gray, paired with a color with more personality like yellow.
