If you feel that any room in your home is looking a little drab, then it might be time for a bit of a makeover. Painting a room can do wonders for the atmosphere and really change the whole experience of walking into the room.
When it comes to the bathroom you may be limited with the colours that you have to play with as the fixtures and the tiles will all be a certain colour and the paint will need to match. So how do you make the most of the bathroom without a complete remodel? We’ve got some tips that will help you not only pick out the right colour paint for your bathroom but also make the room really stylish.
1. Look at what you have to work with
Take a look at the colour of the bathroom sink, the tub, tiles and toilet. This is your starting point and unless you have the budget for a remodel, you’re stuck with this base colour. If you like the colour then that’s great. If you hate it, don’t despair, there are still many things that you can do.
2. Pick out some options and get some samples
You can paint a few sections of the wall so that you can see what your preferred colour choices look like in your bathroom. This is important as your bathroom my rely heavily on artificial light that might be very different from inside the store where you bought the paint. Once you have seen what the colour looks like on the wall you should then be able to make the right choice when it comes to your bathroom paint colour.
3. The shower curtain
Now that you have painted the walls it is time to find a new shower curtain. You will be able to choose from a near unlimited range of colours. These are fairly affordable so if you want to try a couple of different styles and colours then it is not the end of the world if you are not a fan of your first choice.
You can look for additional ways to add a little bit of colour to your bathroom and really make the whole room into something special. You could look to changing the taps for coloured ones, they don’t have to be silver.
A trip to your local hardware store will give you an idea of what options you have. If you have a freestanding tub then a popular trend is to paint the underside of it in a colour that contrasts to the rest of your bathroom this is a great way to add a nice bit of colour to neutral bathrooms.
5. Bathroom accessories
Every bathroom needs items like toothbrush holders, waste paper basket, shower mat and hand towels. These can all be carefully selected to match the colour palette that you have chosen for your bathroom.
6. Speak to a professional
If you want to make sure that you don’t make any mistakes, especially with the painting of your bathroom, then you should speak to a professional interior painter. Painting a bathroom is not as easy as painting the rest of your home, which is still challenging. There are so many more areas in the bathroom that you don’t want paint to spill such as the tiles and the mirror. These surfaces are not easy to remove paint from and even a few drips or a careless brush stroke can undermine all of your efforts.
