Choosing a Bathroom Paint Color

Choosing a bathroom paint color can be a fun but challenging aspect of a renovation. Dramatic upgrades like moving from a “blah” shower insert to a gorgeous glass enclosure or hanging a stunning framed mirror above the vanity go a long way toward giving your bathroom the spa-like ambiance you desire.

However, the effect will not be complete without the right color on the walls. So, as you consider steam shower options, compare vanities, and select your free standing tub, don’t forget to take some time to find the perfect paint color for your updated bathroom!

Benjamin Moore’s Sharon Grech - - offers helpful insights into choosing the ideal bathroom paint color in light of today’s décor trends. Whether they’re seeking cool sophistication or luxury with a bit more warmth, modern decorators are selecting neutral paint colors that complement the natural materials, such as wood and stone, which have taken center stage in recent years.


Sharon begins by suggesting a couple simple gray hues that have the advantage of matching any décor style. If, however, you appreciate the versatile neutrality of gray but want to cheer up the space with a hint of color, she suggests looking into cool blues and greens. A gray-blue or gray-green, for instance, might give you just the right blend of radiance and neutrality.

For those drawn to a warmer palette, Sharon recommends “pale corals or warm golds” while cautioning that yellows and green-yellows are unflattering to many skin tones. While they can work well elsewhere, this might rule them out in a space where people typically shave or apply make-up.


Choosing bathroom paint revolves around selecting a color, of course, but finding the best finish – from matte to high gloss – is also crucial, and Sharon touches on this issue. Past home decorating wisdom urged homeowners to only and always use high gloss paint in a bathroom setting because of its ability to resist water spots.


However, aesthetic trends currently favor the cozier look that only a matte finish can give. A new type of Benjamin Moore paint, Aura Bath and Spa, blends a matte finish with resistance to moisture, making it a great product to look into for your bathroom remodel.
