Paint has the power to transform a room. The right paint color can make a small space feel bigger (you can't go wrong with classic white) and certain shades — think energetic yellow tones or pastel blues — have a way of brightening windowless rooms. When it comes to settling on the best bathroom paint colors, it pays to take your design aesthetic into account, whether you're partial to farmhouse looks or sleek modern spaces. And don't forget about choosing the perfect paint finish. For instance, you might consider semi-gloss to help mask scuffs and keep mildew at bay.

If you're having a hard time choosing a bathroom paint color, this roundup is full of inspiration. Here, you'll find practical ideas to design around subdued neutrals along with creative layouts that rely on dramatic colors. These bathroom paint colors are worth a look if a renovation isn't in the cards for you this year.
