5 Bathroom Color Trends You Need To Try

Color Tips

The bathroom is more than just a place where you do your morning hygiene. When expertly decorated, it can serve as a relaxing retreat where you can soothe away stress. It can be an energizing space that expresses your personality or even a bright, clean spot to start and end your day. This means that for many homeowners, this favorite room deserves a thoughtful color palette that complements its function and overall mood.

We’ve seen a lot of earthy hues and soothing, nature-inspired shades this year—perfect for those seeking a relaxing and rejuvenating space. However, deep, saturated shades are also becoming more popular in bathrooms for a more dramatic look where bold choices aren’t likely to overwhelm. So whether you’re looking to refresh or design an entirely new space, take inspiration from these 2022 bathroom color trends to help bring your vision to life.

1. Soft Blues

Blue has long been a fan favorite bathroom paint color for years. The appeal has only increased as people seek to create calm, serene spaces throughout the home. To fully utilize this bathroom color trend, we recommend painting the walls in a soft shade reminiscent of the sky. Then, continue the color onto the ceiling to give your bathroom a larger feel.

2. Earthy Tones

Bathroom color trends are experiencing a warming effect, which means we’re seeing more of the cozy, earthy hues that make us feel grounded. But, of course, we’re talking beige, cream, taupe, and terra-cotta—color schemes that have been popular in kitchens for years but have now made their way into bathrooms!

Try pairing organic hues with natural stone tile or countertops and rich wood finishes for a warm, grounding impression.

3. Bold Black

If your looking to make your bathroom stand out, consider adding a dark paint color. It’s no longer taboo to use intense hues like black and charcoal gray in the space, and these colors can help achieve a sophisticated, modern vibe or envelop the room in a cozy feel. For example, try a tuxedo-inspired combination to create a classic, sophisticated look. This look is achieved by pairing jet-black colors with bright white. Or go for a tone-downed look with softer shades that verge dark gray.

4. Luxurious Jewel Tones

If you’re looking for a way to shake things up in your bathroom, try a bold color.

The bathroom is the perfect place to experiment with dramatic jewel-tone colors that might be too much for other rooms in your home. For example, sapphire blue walls might overpower a large living room, but they’ll shine in the smaller confines of a bathroom. Instead, consider rich, saturated shades of blue and green—even yellow—for the walls and ceiling. This bold bathroom color trend works incredibly well in small powder rooms or guest bathrooms, where it creates a jewel box-like effect.

5. Go Green

Green is currently a top color trend of the year for homes; it works exceptionally well in bathrooms. In bathrooms, green paint colors such as olive, moss, and eucalyptus help establish a tranquil mood. Try Pairing a muted green vanity with warm white walls for a simple nod to nature, or wrap the entire room in green for a lush look.

This is my second time using Pro 1 Painters. So, yes, they are good. This is the second room I've had the popcorn ceiling scraped and painted and walls painted. There is no way around it, scraping a popcorn ceiling is a messy job but they kept it contained. This time my first contact was with Marissa, the production coordinator. She was very... pleasant. helpful, and professional. Her voice sounds like a smile. Seab came out to see what needed to be done. He was very friendly and professional. He did all the measurements and listened to what I had in mind and made suggestions where necessary. He got the estimate to me promptly. Jaime and Ruben scraped the ceiling and painted. They are real pros. I can't believe how smooth they got the ceiling. It's beautiful. This is an old Fairhope house, so after the ceiling dried, even though they had done two coats, yellow came through in some places. So I called Marissa and in a matter of a few days, Jaime and Ruben came back and painted it with Kilz and repainted. Jaime and Ruben were great .... good at their job, worked hard, very pleasant, no swearing and no smoking.I thought the price was very reasonable, not cheap, but for what I got very reasonable. It's the old adage, you get what you pay for.In a few months I hope to tackle more rooms and I'll be calling Pro 1 Painters.Judith Robertsread more

Pro 1 Painters did an excellent job on doing interior and exterior painting on the Fort Morgan beach house. I had the exterior trim and interior touch up along with having the porch floors finished with a coating. Pro 1 was able to adjust their schedule to our needs since we also had a couple of exterior doors replaced and the recent storms we... had put my schedule for repairs behind in getting the doors hung. Pro 1 was able to return and finish up painting the doors once they were hung.My only complaints were a cut in the screen enclosing the back porch. Probably cut when the crew was finishing the back porch floor. Easily repaired but it was left unfixed. There also were some splatter marks on the exterior which was minor but touch up could have been done. I recently had the landscaping renewed and the crew did not take any due care to protect the landscaping.Overall, a happy customer and the complaints are easily taken care of. I do endorse Pro 1 Painters for your next painting project.read more

Ours was a particularly hard job, 1000 sf great room with 20' ceiling, lots of trim, doors, windows, etc; and lots of issues, like sheetrock cracks, backed out nail heads, etc. The Pro1 crew tackled the job like champs, keeping the mess to minimum, using the best paint products, making great sheetrock repairs, and applying the paint in crisp lines... with little to no slosh over. We are very pleased with the final job and the Pro1 personnel, especially Jamie, the job manager, and his crews. All the Pro1 staff (beginning/end) acted in a professional and courteous manor. We would be pleased recommend Pro1 to anyone.read more

Had my popcorn removed. The team was promptly on time everyday. They were very respectful to my 77 year old mother which was appreciated. The finished job on the ceilings look like they were smooth finished when built. Mess was a minimum and they cleaned up daily. I would absolutely recommend this team for your project. I will use them for... interior painting next.read more

We were able to schedule the work the same week I called. The team did a wonderful job of correcting a very rough concrete finish. They have a good color selection for the finish they applied to our sunroom and patio floors. The men performed the work in a very timely manner, and the result is beautiful. We highly recommend Pro 1 Painters for a... guaranteed beautiful floor finish that will hold up for many years and be comfortable underfoot.read more
