Tiny Bath? 8 Space-Smart Color Choices
So often we paint tiny nooks white to make them appear larger, but opting for a dark, dramatic wall color like this one—Benjamin Moore's Iron Mountain (2134-30) can feel just as serene and space-expanding. It's all in the details: The hue feels extra glamorous with a detailed mirror, vessel sink, and fringed towel.
Highlight architectural details like a slanted ceiling using bold, contrasting paint for the walls. Navy blue pops against the white of the ceiling, tub, and white woodwork, elevating this small setting to master-bath status.
The cheerful quality of lemon yellow is undeniable, especially when the color is paired with white details and a classic black-and-white tile pattern on the floor. Consider the color of the room your bathroom opens onto—here, fresh yellow pairs especially well with the soft gray of the bedroom beyond.
A bold pink commands attention in any room. Prevent the hue from overpowering a small space by balancing its strength with ample white in tiles, woodwork, and textiles. If you're renovating a modest bath with a linen closet, consider removing the closet and using the space for a double vanity with storage underneath.
