I need a second opinion -- do you think that gray bathroom paint would upgrade this space (along with freshly painted white trim) or do you think that it does not go with the overall vibe of our space? I know that it would probably be a lot of the same color given the distressed grey finish on the cabinetry, but I really don't like the taupe shade that we have on the walls right now. I think that all of the bathroom paint colors blend together and there is no real contrast. The grey paint that I would use would probably be more white than anything, with just a subtle hint of grey to give it some dimension. I thought that it would make the rest of our grey bathroom ideas pop and brighten up the space in general.
Is this gray bathroom paint not absolutely to die for -- I mean it totally takes this design to the next level!! Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that grey and white are super popular bathroom colors these days. I truly do like that color palette just as much as everybody else, but I have never been one to outright copy a design or go right along with the trends. I want my home to feel unique and one of a kind, rather than like it could be anybody else house on the block. We have already committed to painting bathroom cabinets white in the master, and I think that doing a faux finish on the walls like this would totally take the design to the next level.
When we moved into this home we inherited this awful 1990s style stucco gray bathroom paint. The rest of the room is so delightfully updated that I did not really notice the faux finish when we first moved in but, now that are here, the bathroom paint is all that I can see. I have heard that removing or painting over this particular material can be challenging because of the texture. Some people just paint over it and hope that you will not notice the additional textured finish, other people sand down the entire wall to create a smooth finish. Because the powder room is so small I think that we will just spend some extra time to sand it down to its original smooth finish.
Does anybody know what this specific gray bathroom paint that they used on the cabinets here is? It looks like a Benjamin Moore shade that I have seen used in other homes on here, but I really don't know how to figure out the exact color so that I can use it in our home. I have heard that Benjamin Moore has some of the best paint for bathrooms because their formulas are specially made to withstand the humid and high traffic environment of these rooms. I don't mind spending the extra money that I am sure it must cost in order to get that high quality product. Most of my favorite bathroom color ideas feature this cafe au laut gray shade but, alas, every time I try to look for it in the store, there is nothing that really compares.
I really enjoy the subtle simplicity of the soft cool-toned gray bathroom paint that we used in our guest bath. Installing this steam shower inspired me to create a very spa-like vibe in the room and I began looking at bathroom paint ideas 2020 to identify which color palette would help embody that. Time after time I saw these grey bathrooms that had a very subtle elegance to them, but that also embodied the organic look that I really wanted to achieve. I was so dedicated to this paint shade, that we picked the color for the walls and all of the other materials followed. If you are wanting to create a similar gray bathroom, look for Sherwin Williams cloud grey and then go from there.
As I began planning out this remodel, I could not believe how hard it was to pick a shade of gray bathroom paint! I had a pretty good idea of the look that I wanted to achieve in here, mostly due to the help of home design galleries and Instagram pages. Grey was one of the most popular bathroom colors that I saw, so I sort of figured that there would be one shade that everybody tended to gravitate towards. Nope! Boy was it hard to find that perfect neutral grey with just enough warmth to feel inviting but still cool-toned enough to pair well with the marble tile that we chose for the floor and walk in shower. After going through the process, I certainly recommend grey as potential bathroom color schemes if you are in the market, but take your time choosing the shade and definitely swatch a spot in the room first!
