Should I Paint a Tiny Bathroom Dark Brown?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I have a very tiny bath room (about 5'x8'). The shower is tiled in very nice sand-colored tiles that are staying, and the walls of the room are tiled in high gloss tan tiles (which are going). I've already got a color scheme of dark brown with wee touches of orange, teal and a limey green.

My idea is to paint the room a dark chocolate brown. I've never, ever, made such a bold (for me) color choice before, and I'm not sure it'll work in such a tiny space. The room gets decent daylight, and I plan to upgrade the lighting, so I'm not worried about "light". Any thoughts, ideas, warnings to share?
