Popular Bathroom Paint Colours to Consider

Sharing is caring!

Remodelling your bathroom?

Perhaps you’re just looking for a way to make that space better reflect your sense of aesthetics. Whether you recently purchased the home or you’ve lived there for years and want a refresh, painting a bathroom is a great option. This is particularly true today with a wider range of colours and colour combinations. Not sure what your options are today? Below, we’ll walk you through some of the most popular and appealing paint colours to consider for your bathroom.

Blue and Black

If you’re looking to add visual drama to your bathroom, then a blue/black combination could be a great idea. By using black on the lower half of the wall, and adding a rail or other demarcation, then finishing the wall out in a stone blue colour, you can create the illusion that your ceilings are higher than they really are while also adding a touch of elegance to the room.

However, note that because these are dark colours, they should be avoided in small bathrooms.

For smaller rooms, opt for a combination of light colours, such as yellow and white.

Blue Ombre

Love blue? Adore the ombre paint effect that lets your walls move from one colour gradient to another? Blue ombre is an excellent addition for many bathrooms and adds a subtle touch of elegance and beauty. Of course, it’s not for all bathrooms. Again, smaller rooms should use lighter colours to avoid feeling even more cramped.

Pale Oak

Pale Oak is a proprietary colour developed by Benjamin Moore. It’s similar to tan, with a little bit more warmth and a touch of elegance. This allows it to pair very well with natural stone, such as marble. It can be used to create a softer contrast with darker floor tiles, to tie into natural stone vanities and vessel sinks, and more.


Grey is hugely popular right now for use throughout the entire home. Light grey in the bathroom can help you add a luxury note to your space, and because it is lighter, it doesn’t make small bathrooms feel cramped. It also works well with most any material, from natural stone to wood, and can pair perfectly with just about any type of fixtures, whether you’re into chrome, prefer brushed nickel, or you’re on the cusp of style trends with gold or bronze.

Blue Green

You’ll find a number of paint companies with similar shades. For instance, consider “Tranquillity” from Benjamin Moore. These are blue-green shades with a touch of cream thrown in to mute them. The result is a stunning paint colour that exudes elegance and peace. It also works well with white, black, beige, cream, and other colours, giving you free rein for bathroom decorating.

Coral and Grey

We’ve already touched on the popularity and versatility of grey, but we haven’t mentioned coral just yet. It’s more than pink – it’s a powerful fusion of several different colours into a unique combination that can be beach-y, refined, fun, or elegant depending on how you use it.

Combining coral and grey (light grey walls with coral accents, for instance), gives you a way to add a splash of bold, vibrant colour to your bathroom while still anchoring it with a sensible, elegant base.


In the end, these are just some of the popular colours and combination options out there. Interested in exploring your choices?
