Upgrade Your Bathroom with a New Coat of Paint
Bathrooms now beat kitchens when it comes to the most popular space for a home remodel. No need for even the modest expense of updated fixtures or cabinet hardware because you can completely transform your bathroom simply using well-chosen new paint colors. A fresh coat of paint can make an incredible impact on any room, and the bathroom is certainly no exception. Taking the size and shape of your bathroom and the psychology of color into account when selecting hues, new paint on bathroom walls can literally do wonders.
Mood and Color
There is proven psychology behind colors, meaning that certain colors create predictable responses for most people. The paint you choose for your bathroom upgrade can create the desired ambiance.
Do you need all the help you can get waking up in the morning? Why not put your bathroom walls to work for you? Paint your bathroom with warm colors because they typically arouse and stimulate the senses. Reds, yellows, oranges, and some tans and browns are considered warm colors.
If you would like a bathroom that evokes feelings of being physically warm and cozy, choose yellow or orange. But for a cooling atmosphere that feels downright chilly but at the same time calming, paint your woodwork or walls icy blue or green.
Sometimes choosing the right color is a balancing act. For example, you might want gray shades in your bathroom because the color provides a strong infusion of sophistication and elegance in your home. There are some grays, however, that can be depressing, murky, or too serious. Getting it right is worth it, especially considering that gray is trending as the most popular paint color for at least two years running. Benjamin Moore paints that look great together in a bathroom include the gray hue of cinder (AF-705) for the walls matched with sweet bluette (813) on the upper or lower walls and cloud white trim (OC-130).
There are some simple paint color principles that are helpful for rooms of unusual size. If, for instance, you have a small bathroom, a lighter color will give the appearance of being more spacious. A darker paint hue will create more intimacy in a large washroom. To give a low ceiling the effect of being higher, paint the ceiling a lighter color than the bathroom walls.
Type of Paint
The constant moisture and humidity in bathrooms make them challenging environments for any type of wall coating. For this reason, choose only the highest quality paint for your bathroom remodel.
Consider using the new paint products which are “paint and primer” products. They serve to prime and paint at the same time. Like primer, these paints are excellent for hiding existing paint color and forming a washable, durable, and stain-resistant finish. This type of paint can also make shorter work of your remodel because only two coats are typically needed, as opposed to one coat of primer plus two coats of the desired paint color.
Paint your bathroom with only 100% acrylic paints, for the same qualities just mentioned.
