This Year's Bathroom Paint Color Trends Are Straight From Your Favorite Spa

Soothing Pinks With Blue

Bring dreamy hues into your bathroom by turning to shades of powder or pale pink, says Studholme. She suggests using silvery Light Blue on the walls and ceiling of a bathroom, opting for a higher gloss on the ceiling to make a subtle impact—and layering in pinks for a sense of serenity.

Warm Sunset Tones

In contrast to the cool colors that have been popular in recent years, warm pinks, yellows, and oranges are making a comeback. "Bathrooms are often the first room we enter in the morning as we get ready for the day, so selecting an uplifting shade with vibrant warmth helps you start your day with a positive outlook," says Sue Kim, director of color marketing at Valspar.

Deep Orange and White

Aside from vibrant citrus hues, we are seeing deep, earthy oranges with fresh undertones. "Within the bathroom space, earthy and energizing hues like Persimmon inspire an environment that feels uplifting and rejuvenated and create a colorful contour when used throughout prominent fixtures such as cabinets, tiling, or linens," says Ashley Banbury

Complex and Moody Blues

Shades of blue are always popular choices for the primary bathroom, but this year's popular hues are "more complex and moodier" than in the past, says Kim; think rich midnight blue and dusky mid-range tones. "Blue tones encourage us to decompress and renew," says Kim. "We'll continue to see popular shades and color choices used in the bathroom that are more often connected to natural elements, which is attributed to the longevity of the colors in the home.

Light Blue, Dark Blue, and White

Don't overlook tonal combinations, say our experts—layering two shades of blue with a crisp neutral, like beige or white, offers controlled contrast. "New color Kittiwake [a warm, lake blue] could be used on the bottom of the walls in combination with All White and Wine Dark stripes," says Studholme.

Canary and Brown-Gray

Canary and brown-gray might be an unconventional choice for a bathroom, but hear us out. "For those with bolder tastes in family bathrooms, the warm but clean tones of yellow Babouche might be used in a diamond pattern with earthy Tanners Brown on the floor or bath panel," says Studholme.

Olive Green and Forest Green

Rich shades work well in powder rooms, too, which can handle more dramatic aesthetics. "In the powder room and the smaller guest bathroom spaces, people are more adventurous and have a little bit more fun with color," says Nicole Gibbon, founder of Clare. "In a powder room, we're seeing colors like [olive-toned] Dirty Martini and Current Mood, which is a rich, moody green."

Tranquil Green-Grays and Neutrals

Pale neutrals, sea-glass greens, and grayed-out aquas turn your daily shower routine into a spa-inspired soak. "Primary bathroom spaces where people get ready every day tend to be lighter and fresher," says Gibbon, who often recommends Chill, an understated gray-green, for this room.
