4 Bathroom Paint Colors Interior Designers Swear By | MyDomaine
It's no secret that paint can transform a space. Whether you're looking to refresh your small powder room or revamp your master bathroom, a fresh coat can quickly take a room of any size from drab and dreary to open and bright or moody and sophisticated. But, as anyone who's wandered down the paint aisle at their local hardware store can attest, choosing a paint color is easier said than done.
When it comes to selecting the right bathroom paint color, there are a number of factors to consider that are specific to that space, particularly if you're freshening up a particularly small bathroom. Will a dark hue make the room feel sophisticated and modern or cramped and cave-like? Will a crisp shade of white look too cold and stark in a room without windows? Because paint colors can be so hard to envision, naturally, we turned to the pros to narrow down our swatch selection.
Keep scrolling to find out why interiors designers call these the "best bathroom paint colors."

13 Tricky Interior Design Terms, Defined
When you’re renovating your place – or even just looking for a new rug – the last thing you want is to be bamboozled by interior design terms you’re unfamiliar with.

Banquette: a built-in bench along a wall.
Chaise: a chair with a longer seat, so you can recline on it.

Drop-leaf table: a table with a hinged flap (or “leaf”) on one side that can be lowered or raised to decrease or increase surface area.
Ikat: fabric made using traditional Indonesian tie-dye weaving techniques.
Jute: a natural fibre use for rugs and baskets. Typically softer than other natural fibres, including sisal.
Kilim: hand-woven fabric made in the Middle East that traditionally features geometric patterns in rich, saturated colours. Often used for wall hangings.
Limewash/whitewash: a treatment for wood or masonry, to give an aged, translucent, washed effect. Often used on floors.

Sisal: a natural fibre made from the leaves of agave plants, often used to make rugs and baskets. Sisal is incredibly durable.
