Be daring with your choice of bathroom paint and take a leap into the dark side. Not quite brave enough to opt for a pitch black? Consider a deep inky blue, forest green or dark grey. We think a bathroom is the perfect room to take risks with paint as most bathroom designs incorporate a lot of tiles, so there isn’t an abundance of free wall space, meaning you can definitely make a statement with your choice of paint colour.

Without thinking about it, a lot of us paint our ceilings white even though we’ve opted for a creative paint design on our walls. But, why is this? Think outside the box and consider painting your ceiling the same colour as your walls or even a contrasting design, which will definitely add drama!

Bath backdrop

Use paint as a backdrop to your bath to zone off different areas of your bathroom design. Is your bath something you’ve heavily invested in and want your design to draw attention to it? Painting the wall behind it a bold contrasting shade is a great way of doing this. It’s also an opportunity to introduce colour into your space without committing to an entire room design.
