Best Colors For Bathroom

  • Sophisticated off-white paint colors are always a great choice. Favorites include Chantilly Lace OC-65 and Ballet White OC-9.
  • Soft pinks and blush hues such as First Light 2102-70, from the Color Trends 2020 palette and Cream Puff 2174-70, are popular alternatives to off-whites.
  • Greens can be incredibly soothing in a bathroom, bringing the refreshing tones of outside, in. Use becoming hues in your bathroom like Van Alen Green HC-120.
  • Blues promote a sense of tranquility in any space. We love November Skies 2128-50, a soothing silvery blue that always looks fresh and crisp.
  • Keeping a similar undertone from room to room creates a soothing vibe. Choose paint colors for your bathroom that have the same cool or warm undertone of adjoining rooms for a seamless visual flow.
Always test your color options as lighting impacts how paint color reads.

Master Bathroom Paint Color Ideas

An area where 'me time' takes top priority, the master bathroom is the most personal space in your home.


Create a spa-like mood with paint colors that nurture rest and relaxation.


Calming hues include soft grays like Metropolitan AF-690, our Color of the Year 2019, and soft pastels like Palladian Blue HC-144, Italian Ice Green 2035-70 and Gray Cloud 2126-60.

Small Bathroom, Big Look

A modestly-sized space offers an invitation to play with color, and small bathrooms are no different. Saturated colors pop in small places, as seen here with Old Claret 2083-30. 

Deeper, richer colors, combined with the right lighting can bring outsized ambience to a small space.

Have fun: Try painting the ceiling an unexpected colour such as Fruit Shake 2088-60 or Windmill Wings 2067-60. 

Consider painting inset towel shelving or other bathroom accents with Black Ink 2127-20 or Deep Space 2125-20—two dark hues that provide a striking contrast against white or off-white tile and walls.


The Soft, Fresh Feeling of Matte Walls

Good news! A gloss or semi-gloss paint finish isn’t your only option when it comes to avoiding the unsightly effects of bathroom humidity.
The matte finish of AURA® Bath & Spa also provides exceptional durability, color retention and mildew resistance in high-humidity environments.
A matte finish delivers a sense of softness to bathrooms where hard surfaces like tile, mirrors, and metal fixtures abound. Committed to higher sheens in the bathroom?
Keep in mind that a paint with a higher finish or sheen may create an overabundance of shine, especially when combined with typical bathroom surfaces.
