Style Forecast: 5 Upcoming Bathroom Wall Paint Colors

Painting your bathroom walls and hoping to look forward to a color that's not on the way out? Here are some bathroom color ideas to consider that won't look tired as soon as the paint's dry:

  • Warm gray is a great neutral for contemporary or traditional styles. It's everlasting, easy to coordinate with just about any accent, and isn't quite the landlord's boring beige. Check out Sherwin Williams' Analytical Gray.
  • Dark plum isn't for the faint of heart. But if your bathroom has a window and you're looking for drama, this moody tone may be just right for you. Imagine it accented with turquoise. Check out Benjamin Moore's Deep Mulberry.
  • Peach tones don't have to be applied like they were in the 1950s. Think allover monochrome with natural wood accessories. And imagine it casting the glow of early morning or evening light, any time of day. Check out Valspar's Slipper Shell.
  • Hot pink, again, is for the bold and the brave. But once it's up, it will cast such gorgeous warmth and will wake you up in the morning. Use this as an accent with a faintly greenish putty color if you don't want it everywhere. Check out Benjamin Moore's Peony.
  • Light yellow-green is officially a cool color but is citrusy enough that it's almost warm. It's a cheery color without being straight up yellow. We love it with black and white as seen in the example. Check out Dunn Edwards' Perfect Pear.
