Forget Basic Beige — Give Bold Bathroom Colors a Shot
It's time to stop playing it safe!
When it comes to decorating a home, bathrooms aren't usually the top priority. They frequently end up forgotten all together, or put on the back burner while more high profile rooms — bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, etc. — get all the attention. So most bathrooms are relegated to a life of beige walls and half-hearted designs.
But why? We spend a considerable amount of time in our bathrooms, and their small size makes them a breeze to update. All you really need to transform the space is a pop of color on the walls — but no, I'm not talking about painting those beige walls off-white or ivory, I'm talking about something a little more daring. Read on for 8 bold bathroom color ideas to try this year.
Unapologetically girly, fun and bright...what's not to love?

This highlighter-inspired shade is not for the faint of heart — but it's perfect if you're craving a truly daring design scheme.
BLUE - Studies have shown that blue tends to be the most beloved color. This is due in part to the fact that seeing the color blue causes the body to produce chemicals which calm the nerves. Wisdom and loyalty are often associated with blue which is the reason many uniforms sport different shades of this color. Since blue is the color of water and sky, itâs a popular designer choice for bathrooms and spas.
Blue may not seem like the boldest choice, but this deep, saturated shade is high-impact without being over-the-top.
