What Paint Should You Use for Your Bathroom?

June 21, 2018

Picking out the right fixtures and features for your new bathroom is super fun, but before you can make informed decisions on what you’re going to put in the room, you need to finish the room itself.

That means it’s time to think about painting your bathroom! Bath Doctor is here for all your bathroom design/build needs.

What Paint Should You Use for Your Bathroom?

Let’s Talk About Colors.

As far as colors go, the possibilities are virtually endless. Your bathroom can be any color you like. What you should keep in mind is how colors make the room feel and the colors of particular pieces you know are going to go into your bathroom.

One of the basics of interior design is understanding the psychological impact of certain colors. For example, red usually inspires passion and excitement, whereas blue offers a more calming effect. Think about the way you want your bathroom to feel; it may be a good place to start.

You should also take some time to study up on your color theory so that you don’t end up falling in love with a bunch of colors that don’t actually go together.

Let’s Talk About Finishing Coats.

One important feature of the bathroom is that it is usually a place that gets wet, and that may affect your paint choice. As you consider the different finishing options for the paint in your bathroom, pay special attention to semi-gloss.

A semi-gloss finish on your bathroom’s paint can help to keep moisture from wreaking havoc. Though satin, eggshell, and matte finishes may be attractive, steam from your shower is going to do more damage to them.

A glossy finish can also help darker colors pop in the event you choose a gem tone or other dark color to paint your walls.
