Cerulean blue is one of the most popular bathroom paint colors at the moment

You probably know the old rule – if your bathroom is quite small, it’s best to avoid dark hues, as they will make it seem even tinier. While this is definitely true, it doesn’t necessarily mean you are stuck with plain white walls forever! One way to include color in a small bathroom’s palette without optically shrinking it, is by opting for lighter hues, combined with an accent wall in a bright, vivid shade. Including white wooden paneling is another great solution, as it will create a bright, balanced look. If you prefer, you can replace paneling with tiles in light colors.

If your bathroom is bigger, or has windows that supply enough natural lighting during the day, you can experiment with deeper and darker colors. Navy, red and even black have become increasingly popular in recent years. They are excellent choices and will add a lot of character to your bathroom, but it is advisable to combine them with furniture in lighter colors, in order to avoid oversaturation.
