If your outdated bathroom is in serious need of a makeover, you may opt for a complete remodel. One fun aspect of remodeling your bathroom is choosing the new paint and decorative colors for the space. However, be aware that picking the wrong colors or color combinations can negatively impact the bathroom.

Here are a few simple tips to help you choose new colors for your bathroom.

Begin by Choosing the Main Color for the Space

The main color of the bathroom of your bathroom will set the tone for the rest of the space and choosing the wrong colors can make your newly renovated bathroom seem even more dated. Additionally, if you are renovating your bathroom before selling your home, you need to keep the tastes of potential buyers in mind as well.

Here are a few simple tips to help you choose a new paint color for the bathroom:

  • Choose a theme. Whether your love sleek and modern or are using the beach as your inspiration, choose the colors based upon a theme. This will help you narrow down your choices.
  • Use dark colors cautiously. Painting the bulk of your walls a dark color will make a bathroom feel much smaller than it really is. If you have a smaller bathroom, lighter colors will reflect more light and make the space feel more open.
  • Use colors in your home for inspiration. Continue the colors from another space in your home, such as your master bathroom or kitchen in the bathroom. This will make your home feel more cohesive.

If you are selling your newly renovated home, consider neutral colors or a shade of white, as these safer options tend to attract more buyers than bolder colors.

Choose Accent Colors and Patterns

Next, choose the accent colors in your bathroom, based upon the main color of the bathroom. One simple option is to choose a complementary color to the color on the walls. For accent colors, keep the finish of your cabinets and fixtures in mind to create a more cohesive finished appearance.

For example, if you have warm-toned fixtures, such as brass, bronze, or gold, then cooler-toned colors, such as a light blue or green will create a unique contrast in the bathroom. Finally, don't be afraid to use patterns, especially if you choose white or a neutral tone for the main color.
