HGTV asks a variety of experts for tips in choosing the best bathroom paint colors for your new or updated bathroom.

While there are notable exceptions, white toilets, tubs, and sinks remain popular in bathrooms across the US, so pairing white with the right wall color is a key aspect of bathroom design success. Suggested shades include “Restoration Hardware’s Silvery Sage” and “metallic blue paints in the Ralph Lauren line.” These tones make a great backdrop for colorful accents like towels or hooks.

There are practical considerations to account for as well when searching for the best bathroom paint color. For instance, if it’s a space where you will be applying makeup, it is preferable to choose a color that is complimentary to your skin tone.

Consider “peach, terra cotta, and pink tones” while veering away from “gray and deeper yellow-greens.”

We often strive to make a small bathroom look bigger, but another approach is possible – use the room’s compact dimensions as a design element rather than trying to disguise its size. Create the effect of “a little jewel box” by drenching the walls and ceilings in a vibrant hue.

With the rising popularity of stone flooring, it’s important to take into account not only the white of the bathroom fixtures but the natural tones present on the stone floor as well. It is not recommended that you try to match the walls to the floors exactly, but be sure to choose a color that pairs well with the stone.

Plants are not only green, so all flower colors can also be rightly considered natural hues.

Another natural bathroom element is marble, often used as a tub surround. A lot of marble includes gray lines, so you want to utilize paint colors that will harmonize with these. One option is to complement the cool gray with another cool color by using “deep violet paint.” Alternatively, you can offset it with a warm hue by painting in “blue or green with a yellow undertone.”

Many homeowners are choosing vintage or vintage-style vanities for their bathrooms. If your vanity has a distinctive look associated with a particular time period, it is a good idea to select paint in a color that was common in that era. For instance, “raspberry or sage green” would work well in a Victorian-themed bathroom.

With these helpful hints from HGTV, you can choose paint that makes your bathroom the perfect palette for other lovely elements like the vanity mirror and glass shower.
