For many, the bathroom is just a room where you spend as least amount of time possible on daily grooming. But what if your bathroom was decorated to be a space where you love to be; where spending time relaxing in the bathtub or performing daily grooming rituals was a pleasant experience rather than one to complete as quickly as possible?

Today's bathroom should be more than a bland, sterile room and trends indicate that several popular paint colour trends can be used to give any bathroom personality. In this article, we take a look at some of the most popular colours used for decorating a bathroom if yours needs a new look to turn it into an inviting space.

A modern combination of grey and beige, greige is a neutral paint colour that brings warmth to an otherwise cold bathroom. Greige is also the perfect paint colour if you prefer pastel colours for your bathroom textiles such as towels and shower curtain, etc. Use greige in a modern bathroom where the space needs a touch of luxury or warmth.

 

CORAL FOR A WARM, VIBRANT BATHROOM

For an east-facing bathroom that doesn't get a lot of natural sunlight, or a bathroom that needs a bit of a pick-me-up, then you might want to consider coral. This paint colour is a combination of red and orange without the boldness but has just enough warmth to heat a cold bathroom. Red and orange set the pulse racing, so coral is the perfect colour if you need a kick in the butt to get you started in the mornings.

Whether used on walls or to paint bathroom furniture, nothing beats navy blue as a classic colour with high impact. You can pair this colour with white, grey, red or neutral hues for a timeless look that pairs with traditional or modern bathrooms. Navy blue is also the best colour if you are looking to bring in a nautical or coastal theme to a bathroom.

If you are wondering what colour to use for decorating a traditional or vintage bathroom, seafoam has just the right amount of green to look great in combination with white bathroom sanitary ware or brass accessories. This colour also has far-reaching appeal when used in a spa bathroom where you want to create an atmosphere of relaxation and calm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

GREY FOR CONTEMPORARY OR INDUSTRIAL-LOOK BATHROOM

 

 

 

Grey has become a popular paint colour in the last few years, but you have to be careful to pick the right hue and shade for grey or a room or paint furniture can end up looking more like office furniture than modern furniture for a bathroom. Keep it light and opt for cool with just a hint of blue, or match it to bathroom tiles or concrete countertops if you want more of an industrial-feel in a bathroom.
