Our tips for choosing a bathroom scheme
Check Your Look
Be sure to pick a paint colour that does not recast light in an artificial or unflattering way and cause problems when applying make-up or grooming. It's helpful to know which colours will alter the light: Strong blues, greens and yellows have the most impact; creamy whites and soft greys are safe choices.
A master bathroom is where you grab some "me" time. Choose soothing paint colours that ease you into a Zen attitude. Whether it be a light and airy pastel or a calming watery blue, this is your most personal space, so pick a colour that you love. Here’s one caveat: for visual flow, choose paint colours that share either cool or warm undertones with an adjoining bedroom.
Little Bathroom, Big Look
A cloakroom doesn’t have to be forgettable—the pint-sized space offers an opportunity to use strong colour. If the cloakroom doesn’t have natural light, vivid or rich colour can play with artificial lighting sources to make a strong style statement. Or, experiment with painting the ceiling for additional colour interest.
Soft Effects or Staying Neutral
With tiles, mirrors and fixtures, bathrooms are full of hard surfaces. So allow the wall colour to bring a sense of softness to the space. Warm whites and neutrals are very flattering in bathrooms and complement the hues found in many countertops and tiles. Benjamin Moore Aura® Bath & Spa* paint has a soft matte finish that provides a low sheen level and resists the damaging effects of moisture and humidity, while also locking in colour.
