For a clean and fresh look, light neutrals give your bathroom that appealing ambience, very fitting for a place where you do your bathing rituals.
Light neutrals are also safe backdrops for white bath fixtures, chrome or brass fittings and glass, and would give the illusion of space. The purity of porcelain, the gleam of chrome and sparkle of glass against a light neutral background also give a feeling of understated luxury.
For those who rent, you can easily banish any dingy feeling that the bathroom gives you by cleaning it thoroughly first of all, then by applying a coat of paint.
Disclaimer: These colors may not exactly match actual paint.
Tip: Nothing dates a bathroom more than colored fixtures. Choose white lavatories, basins, and bathtubs because not only is white a classic and will never go out of style, but it would also be easier for you to unload the property should you want to sell it. New homeowners usually want a neutral canvas to begin with to imprint their own character on the space. The same is true with the color of walls.
