77+ Top Bathroom Paint Colors Schemes for Your Bathroom

Decorating a small bathroom can be tough and choosing the perfect color scheme can be even harder. If you’re looking for some design inspiration, let us guide you.

Step out of your comfort zone and try one of these bright and bold color palettes that will add some spunk (and style) to your plain-Jane powder room.

Bathroom With Orange Subway Tile Wall

If you like a lighter touch with your color, you might want to consider a simple subway tile wall, like in this example from van Ellen Sheryn. Bright white grout highlights the white tub and surrounding wall, and a darker floor adds a touch of muted comfort.

Serene Green


On the lighter side, try a soothing shade of green. When paired with all-white fixtures, you’ll get a tranquil and rejuvenating space to freshen up. After all, Greenery is Pantone’s Color of 2017.

Neon Yellow


Brilliant yellow stripes bring a fun, youthful vibe to a small bathroom. Keep the fixtures and accessories minimal to not overwhelm the space.

Powder Blue


Not into the bold, vibrant colors? Try a more subdued hue like this baby blue bathroom. A sunny shade of yellow pairs perfectly with the space to liven it up.



Pink creates a flattering glow and feeling of warmth in a bathroom. Pairing it with white or black, as Jamie Drake did in his Manhattan master bath, keeps the space looking modern rather than girly.

Vibrant Teal


A bright shade of teal makes quite the statement in this modern bathroom design. Choosing a vivid color for the walls and ceiling really makes the subway tile backsplash, artwork and fixtures pop.

Bright White


This classic shade creates a crisp, clean look and reflects light, helping to make small bathrooms feel just a little bit bigger. Choose a hue that matches your tile and bath furnishings to keep the look cohesive. Here, a true white brightens a bathroom in Martha’s Vineyard.

Cerulean Blue


This bright and beautiful blue is the color of the sea—specifically, the kind of gorgeous water you see at a tropical beach. Even though this color is bright, it’s incredibly calming, making it a perfect choice for a family bathroom. It instantly creates a relaxed, beachy style that will leave you feeling those vacation vibes all year long. Try pairing it with crisp whites for a more traditional nautical-inspired look, or more vintage-toned whites and pops of tropical brights for a beach house style.



This green is a little more vibrant than the light pastel greens we mentioned earlier. This shade brings a burst of energy to your room without being too in your face. It pairs perfectly with bright white accents to create a sleek and sophisticated bathroom style. If you want to tone it down a bit, pair it with natural woods and browns for a more earthy vibe.
