On average, Americans spend over 30 minutes a day in the bathroom. There is nothing worse than walking into someone's guest bathroom and realizing it's a dingy, boring mess -- especially when you are a house guest staying over for the holidays! Ensure your bathroom is as cozy and comfortable for your guests as possible by using a coat of paint to bring it to life.
Add dimension to your guest bathroom with subtle, neutral colors. The right cream or beige can really wake a space up, especially if it is small like this bathroom below from The Levine Group. Light grays add a level of sophistication and are very trendy this year, as you can see from this bathroom below featured on Caitlin Wilson. Soft, light hues of more daring colors, like this beautiful sea foam green space featured on Color Chats, above, are another great option. These colors are a little more inconspicuous but will still brighten up a space while making your guests look great in the mirror.
If your interior design style is bold, pick a darker or more vibrant color. This dark gray bathroom from The Yellow Cape Code is absolutely stunning with those pops of red, while this dark purple bathroom featured on Pure Inspiration is equally chic! (Both below.) Dark hues like these will really make the white porcelain of your bathtub, toilet, and sink pop. Add other neutrally colored spaces to the bathroom, like a white shower curtain, so the room doesn't become too busy!
If you are worried about overwhelming your guests with color or are having trouble committing to just one hue, experiment with accent walls. Painting just a wall or two instead of the whole bathroom can be more manageable both mentally and physically. Remember: if you love it, you can always paint the rest of the bathroom and if you hate it, you can always paint over it! The bathrooms below from It's A Baltimore Life and Raleigh Cary NC show how the concept can add interest and dimension to both small and large spaces.
