I think that the stunning gray bathroom wall colors in this home are absolutely to die for! Usually I would not gravitate to something this dark, especially in a bathroom, but something about the richness of the gray bathroom paint that they chose makes the space feel ultra chic and lux. While I do love the wall paint, there are a couple areas of the space that I personally would have changed. First, the concept of the tile focal wall behind the tub is fantastic, but I do not like that color of tile paired with the paint color. They are alike enough that the contrast is not pleasing -- I would have done a lighter grey tone or even some sort of marble design.
I think that picking out the right bathroom wall colors is by far the hardest design decision to make. Unfortunately I am notorious among my family and friends and not having the ability to pick paint in general and, more specifically, I am just horrible at bathroom colors. I think that the reason that I struggle is because there is rarely natural light in these spaces, so it is hard to match up the undertones of tile, fixtures, countertops etc. and whatever shade is on that tiny little card. I can't tell you how often I have had to repaint spaces because they just don't work. I finally redeemed myself with the bathroom paint colors 2020 redo that we did in our master bath.
In a sea of neutral bathroom wall colors, I have been enjoying experimenting with different types of wall paper in order to bring a different texture and personality to the space. Most people don't think beyond your typical bathroom paint ideas, but these are actually fantastic spaces to try out some beautiful wallpaper patterns because they are relatively small (budget and time commitments typically remain pretty low). I love the stunning beige crocodile print that this designer used in the vanity portions of the large master suite. They utilized bathroom wall ideas to portion off the space and create different zones.
I will totally admit that I would never in a million years think to use these bathroom wall colors, but I actually love how the space turned out. We asked my sister in law to design our guest bathroom because she is starting to dabble in interior design and wants to build her portfolio. Seeing as how we wanted to redecorate our guest bath, it seemed like a win win (and it certainly was). She told us that the most popular bathroom colors for this year and beyond into 2020 are grey and subtle seafood blues. This was fine by me because aqua is my favorite color both for clothing as well as home decor. I was definitely not expecting her to suggest that we cover the entire space in bathroom wall tiles, but I went with her vision and cannot believe how well it turned it.
As a rule, I like to keep bathroom wall colors simple and fresh so that they leave the space with that quintessential light and airy feeling that makes you feel clean and refreshed every time you walk in the room. A lot of people agree that the best paint for bathrooms fall into a neutral palette like this lovely beige and white room, not only because of the ambiance it evokes, but also because it is obviously fantastic for resale. Admittedly, it did take me awhile to settle on this particular shade because I had a hard time matching the very warm granite coloring on our vanity countertop. It is a large custom piece so we wanted to make sure to focus our bathroom color schemes around it rather than ripping it out and starting fresh.
As far as bathroom wall colors go, I feel that you can never go wrong with a subtle neutral shade especially if you use tile accents in places other than the floor and shower. I will admit that it did take me awhile to figure out what shade of bathroom wall paint would blend well with the beautiful granite tile design that our guest bathroom has. As you can see the granite is a warm beige shade with a lot of depth and variation in pattern. I wasn't sure if I should pick paint that blended right in to the tile or something that would provide some contrast. A lot of people told me that light calming shades are the best bathroom colors because they make the room feel open and give a very relaxing ambiance.
