Bathroom Paint Colors to Avoid

Is it time to give your bathroom a fresh coat of paint? If so, you might be wondering what color you want to choose. There are a lot of options, and you should ultimately select a color you’re going to be happy with. But there are also some things to consider beyond whether you find a color attractive or not. Here are some bathroom paint colors you probably want to avoid.

Bold Peach Colors Can Look Very Dated

Peach was a popular bathroom color in the 1960s, but now it can make a space look unappealing and dated. That doesn’t mean you can’t use it for accents like rugs, or even one wall. But adding it to all four walls is generally a bad idea. It could make you want to leave the space, instead of stay in it and relax.

Avoid Pantone, and Anything Else Brownish-Green

These colors are generally associated with lower moods and levels of happiness. It can decrease your energy and make you feel depressed. Some people see this color as looking dirty, as if the walls needed to be cleaned. While that’s not to say that some people won’t like this color, it’s probably one that’s best avoided. That’s especially true in a small space, where there isn’t as much room to break up the wall color with otherthings.

Bright Yellows and Bright Oranges

Yellows and oranges are cheerful colors, but that doesn’t mean they’re right for you. They can also cause anxiety in some people, and make them feel frantic or hurried due to their brightness. If you want to have a yellow bathroom, consider a more muted shade. That way you can have all the cheerfulness without the level of anxiety that can come with overly bright colors. The same is true with orange, as choosing a more muted or pumpkin-based option can be a better fit.

When you hire a painting contractor for your Rhode Island home, make sure to talk to them about the bathroom colors you’re considering. There are so many options that you’ll want to look at samples to help you decide. You may also want to choose an accent color for one wall, and leave the others white or off-white to avoid too much color in a small space.
