Are you thinking of Painting your Bathroom Walls?

All too often the bathroom gets neglected when it comes to paintwork. Okay, you might spend a small fortune of a luxurious bath or a shower with super-powers, Italian marble floor tiles or under-floor heating. painting your bathroom walls tealBut all of these great bathroom features can result in a disappointing finish if no real thought has gone into the colour you are painting your bathroom walls.

The question is – do you want to go pale and safe or vibrant and daring?


Of course pale colours can still be interesting and if you have a small space painting your bathroom walls in lighter colours like aqua, peach or shades of white can be really effective in making your bathroom feel more spacious. A few bright accessories will add a touch of daring without making the small space feel cluttered.

Cool neutrals with a hint of blue give a feeling of serenity and tranquillity, conjuring up images of a spa retreat with fluffy white robes and luxurious bubble baths.

A sophisticated style with rich warmth soft yellow walls with elegant accessories will brighten up your day.

If you’re a lover of green – not everyone is – be sure to get it right. Unless you want to be in the ocean or a forest, try a subtle shade matched up with crisp white skirting and doors to create a fresh, fun bathroom.

For the larger bathroom a strong shade of blue and white woodwork looks wonderful. With a claw foot bath, chandelier and antique fittings you can enjoy a modern bathroom with an air of a bygone era.

If you are looking for something different when painting your bathroom walls why not consider a feature wall? It is the ideal way to bring your bathroom decor to life without overwhelming a small bathroom. Try to choose a wall with nothing on it where you can use a bold colour that will give the wow factor to your bathroom.painting your bathroom walls black

For those who want to be really daring consider painting your bathroom walls in a strong dark colour like maroon or black even!


If there is ever a room in your home that can get away with this it’s the bathroom. It’s not a social space and people don’t usually spend long periods of time in there so you can afford to be daring and try out an unusual colour. Offset with much lighter fittings, pictures and accessories it can look amazing.
