If you’re looking to give your bathroom a fresh new look, you’ve come to the right place! Painting your bathroom is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to give it a makeover. But with so many colors to choose from, it can be hard to decide which one is best for you. To make things easier, we’ve rounded up the four best colors to paint a bathroom.

First up is a classic: white

White is a timeless color choice that will never go out of style. It’s also a great choice for small bathrooms, as it will make the space look bigger and brighter. Plus, it’s easy to match with any other colors you may want to use in the room for accents.

We love the way @theadlerhouse painted this bathroom in Sherwin-Williams Alabaster (SW 7008). Over at Craftwork, we’ve seen our customers choose a similar color for their bathrooms in Charlotte, NC neighborhoods like Dilworth, Noda, and Sedgefield.

Next is a cheerful color: yellow

@idccarolinas painted their bathroom with stripes by using Sherwin-Williams, Blonde SW 6128 and Pure White SW 7005.

Yellow is a way to add a pop of color to your bathroom without being too overwhelming. It’s also a great choice for bathrooms with lots of natural light, as it will reflect the light and make the room look even brighter.

@idccarolinas has the perfect recommendation for adding a pop of color, “Want a pattern without the cost of wallpaper? Add vertical stripes!” We couldn’t agree more and love the way this bathroom in Charlotte, NC turned out with Sherwin-Williams, Blonde (SW 6128) and Pure White (SW 7005).

Third is a calming color: blue

@mandakate82 used Sherwin-Williams Mineral Gray (SW 2740) to paint their bathroom.

Blue is a great choice for bathrooms, as it’s a calming and soothing color that will help you relax after a long day. It’s also a great choice for bathrooms with limited natural light, as it will make the space look brighter and more inviting. Check out how @mandakate82 used Sherwin-Williams Mineral Gray (SW 2740) to spruce up their space.

Finally, there’s a bold choice: green

Green is a unique way to add a bold statement to your bathroom. It’s also a great choice for bathrooms with lots of natural light, as it will make the space look even brighter.

Craftwork painted Jhillika and Connor’s home, near Camp North End in Charlotte, Sherwin-Williams Aquaverde (SW 9051). Our customers were so happy with the end result, and you can read their review here.
