BATHROOM COLOR IDEAS & INSPIRATION
Even the smallest bathrooms play a big role in your day—so don’t let paint color be an afterthought.
The bathroom is where you and your family get prepped to face the world, and it’s your own private retreat when it’s time to recharge. Set the right mood with a look-good, feel-good bathroom paint color. Benjamin Moore Aura® Bath & Spa Paint is the only paint with both mildew resistance and a luxurious matte finish that stands up to humidity, so you have a stylish spectrum of worry-free color options.
Check Your Look
To get an accurate read when you’re grooming or applying makeup, pick a paint color that doesn’t recast the light in an artificial or unflattering way. It’s helpful to know which colors will alter the light: Strong blues, greens and yellows have the most impact; creamy whites and soft grays are safe choices.
A master bathroom is where you grab some “me” time. Choose soothing paint colors that ease you into a Zen attitude. Whether it be a light and airy pastel or a calming watery blue, this is your most personal space, so pick a color that you love. Here’s one caveat: For visual flow, choose paint colors that share either cool or warm undertones with an adjoining bedroom.
Little Bathroom, Big Look
A powder room doesn’t have to be forgettable—the pint-sized space offers an opportunity to use strong color. If the powder room doesn’t have natural light, vivid or rich color can play with artificial lighting sources to make a strong style statement. Or, experiment with painting the ceiling for additional color interest.
Soft Effects or Staying Neutral
With tiles, mirrors, fixtures, bathrooms are full of hard surfaces. So allow the wall color to bring a sense of softness to the space. Warm whites and neutrals are very flattering in bathrooms and complement the hues found in many countertops and tiles. Benjamin Moore Aura® Bath & Spa paint has a soft matte finish that provides a low sheen level and resists the damaging effects of moisture and humidity, while also locking in color.
