Small Bathroom Design Ideas: Choose The Right Paint

If you are looking to renovate your bathroom and don’t want to splish splash all your cash, maybe consider a fresh coat of paint. Using the right colour of paint can transform your bathroom into a space that demands attention, as well as promoting tranquillity, creating a restful oasis for you and your family to enjoy. Here are some of the best-recommended paint colours for a small bathroom design:

Teal
If you’re the bold type, and traditional bathrooms for you just don’t cut the mustard, then a vibrant teal bathroom may just be your cup of tea. While having a busy and colourful bathroom may be daunting, if done well, it can be a statement feature for the whole house. Teal is a great modern colour that demands attention, whilst making your tiles and artworks pop.

Taupe
While neutral colours may be considered on the safer side, playing around with natural and organic tones can leave you a world of possibility when redesigning your bathroom. Not only do warm-toned taupes warm up a bathroom space, but they are also paid very well with pastel colours like blue, green and pink that can be accentuated through towels and shower curtains. This shade will make even the smallest bathroom designs feel luxurious and serene.

Baby Blue
Using a soft shade of blue will give your bathroom all the coastal vibes, making it feel peaceful and fresh just like the ocean. Blue is a very traditional bathroom colour that never ages, and can be warmed up and brightened with hues of bright, sunshine yellow. Did someone say paradise?

Crisp White
While a white bathroom may scream boring and traditional, it actually creates the perfectly clean canvas so your fixtures and textures can do the talking. If experimenting with colour isn’t your forte, a sharp white paint coat will give you the freedom to decorate with towels, artworks and toothbrush holders to your heart’s content.

Black
Black screams sleek, modern and expensive and combined with silver accents, it can bring a sophisticated look to any bathroom. Consider a shimmery silver mosaic tile as the backsplash to make the space really shine.

Leafy Green
If you are looking to transform your small bathroom design into a natural and calming haven, then using earthy and organic colours will bring a slice of nature into your home. Not only will this shade usher the outdoors in, but it will also relax the space when paired with complementary accent colours like sandy beige. A white tub brings breathing space to the look.

Light Grey
A light grey shade will look just as fantastic in your small bathroom design as it will the rest of your home. While this shade doesn’t demand attention, it is bang on trend and will complement white finishes nicely while highlighting the natural beauty in marble flooring or tiling.

Vibrant Red Or Orange
Bright colours like red and orange can do wonders for a bathroom, and they don’t have to just be used on the walls. Painting a wooden vanity a fierce shade of fiery red or blood orange will be an unexpected, yet cheerful way to start the morning.

Pink
Pink may remind you of Aunty Shirley’s bathroom equipped with all the frilly, girly trimmings – however, when done correctly and paired with charcoal, black or white accents it can make the space bang on-trend.
