Interior Designers Love These Paint Colors for a Small Bathroom 

Sacha Strebe

If we had to play favorites, the bathroom would outrank every room in the house. While we love a stylish kitchen, a luxe living room, and a blissful bedroom, nothing compares to the peaceful respite the bathroom offers. It's a place of refuge where we wash off a hard day's work, cleanse the soul, and beautify ourselves for the day ahead. It's a time for reflection and relaxation. (Who doesn't love a bath? Especially in a freestanding tub…) Decorating a bathroom can be challenging, especially when it's a small one, but the most transformative tool in your decorating arsenal is a paint brush.

Interior designer and author Abigail Ahern agrees that "bathrooms aren't the easiest spaces to make homely or stylish," but a dark paint will stop it from veering into the "sterile and soulless" territory. "Going bold with your color choice is an instant game changer," she told MyDomaine. "It's a myth that dark colors are unfit for small spaces. Forget about bland beige or blah pastels; it's not fooling anyone or making the space seem larger, snug, cozy, intimate, and sophisticated." We tapped several interior designers for their favorite out-of-the-box small-bathroom paint colors.
