So many of our clients have been asking us for trends in bathroom colors 2019. I think this is a perfect example of what is hot in luxury bathroom design these days. The grey trend is still very much alive this year, whether that be in kitchens, living areas or bathroom color schemes. Last year we saw these shades frequently used as wall paint, but this year we are seeing it used on cabinetry and vanities like in this stunning on suite bath. I personally love this idea because I have grown tired of those traditional white finishes that have been so popular recently.
Let’s talk about trends in bathroom paint colors for 2019. In past years we have seen subtle blue palettes as the gold standard in home design, but now warmer neutral shades as seen in this beautiful master bath are gaining in popularity. We used to utilize bathroom wall colors to make the primary design statement, with tile, fixtures and countertops being secondary. However, this year, we see that trend being turned upside down. Now paint colors are merely an accent to bolder decorative accents, intricate tile work, and stylish vanities. This master bathroom offers a great example of how you can use these bathroom color ideas to transition your current decor to a more update style.
I have spent quite some time browsing bathroom paint ideas lately because we are in the middle of a home remodel. It’s so hard to sift through all the photos to find a design that is perfect for our home. This beautiful bathroom is the closest I have found so far. I love how the designer used bathroom paint colors that are bold and earthy rather than all of those stark whites and greys that are so popular these days. I would consider my personal style to be rustic with a twist of contemporary. So for me, the dark wood with sleek lines and muted browns really stand out to me. I love how the mosaic tile on the shower and jacuzzi pulls in all of the colors throughout the room and really unifies the look.
We have been compiling our list of popular bathroom colors for 2019 and are finding some rather interesting trends. The year 2018 saw a lot of white and grey tones, with a renewed interest in marble (both real and faux) paired with shiny polished chrome fixtures. Designers seem to be moving away from those color schemes this year, and instead have begun embracing more earthy tones. The bathroom paint colors in this home are a great example of this. I love how the blend of taupe, khaki and ivory creates a monotone palette that screams understated elegance. In fact, between the gorgeous natural stone tile and the wall colors, the entire space has the look of an upscale spa — isn’t that what we all want our home to feel like! For 2019 we are also seeing new product lines come out specifically formulated for bathrooms.
Selecting the right bathroom paint colors for a small space is an important part of maximizing the appearance of size. Light and bright paint colors make a room seem larger and more open, whereas dark tones give a cramped and enclosed feeling. In my experience, the best small bathroom paint colors are those in the beige or tan family like in this room. These shades are in that light neutral palette you are looking for, but they still have an element of style to them. Just because you are working with a limited floorplan, does not mean that you cannot still have a great looking space. The simple tan bathroom colors shown here make the room feel elegant, while at the same time keeping it quite open.
Bathroom paint is one of those key design elements that is often overlooked by the time you are finished picking out tile, vanities and fixtures. This is unfortunate because wall color can actually make a huge difference in the overall look of a space. This is especially true for bathrooms because they generally have a relatively small floor plan. As such, the wrong bathroom paint colors can make an otherwise lovely design fall flat. A shade too dark may give that cramped cave-like feel; whereas, a bright white shade may highlight every speck of dirt in the tiny space. The best bathroom paint colors are ones that add a pop of color without overwhelming the space.
