What are your painting ideas for a small bathroom?
I have two small bathrooms with wainscoating (SP?) and I'd like to redo them. I'd like to leave the wainscoating – I plan on painting that white- but how should I paint the walls? Any ideas? I'm open to all colors, but I'd like to make the bathroom seem more open and clean looking.
Pait the biggest wall purple. Leave everything else bright white. This will give the appearence of a larger room, while adding some demention and color. Periwinkle, sage green, and purple go very well together.
i think blue or green
Stay away from dark colors in Bathrooms. Benjamin Moore paints have 2 great colors i like to use called Linen White or White dove they accent white wainscoating nice. let your accessories color your room…..
Use a Light Pastel color, one of your favorites. I always like my Bathrooms and Kitchen to look Bright and Light and have that Sunny feel to it.
Sponge painting has always been my favorite kind of paint technique! I tried it on my bathroom walls and I truly love it. I have 2 tone green tiles, light and dark green textures. I sponge painted the walls in 2 light green colors, one being darker than the other. the tiles are light tan. It makes my bathroom look and feel so fresh.
Mirrors or mirrored tiles
I have a very small bathroom. I used a light gray with a nice light border. Gray and white look very clean and airy. I love it.
fresh coat of white or offwhite paint. you could also use a tan or a light yellow, but i would stay away from any loud colors because loud colors will make your bathrooms unappealing
We have a really small bathroom that we painted red – I'd call it Chinese red. Mixed with the white porcelain and stainless steel (light fixture/mirror frame) it looks really nice. we also have black tile w/white grout in the room.
Stick to light, neutral colours for the open feeling that you want – anything too strong will make you feel enclosed. if things then look a bit boring, add little accents of colour with the items that you put in it.
I found that brighter collers made mine look more open
to make it look bigger, use lots of mirrors but not on two opposite walls, otherwise youll get a horrible effect. for pain colour i would suggest a really really light shade of lemon/peach/blue
