I have a wonderful house I’m trying to do some DIY upgrades on. I have NO EXPERIENCE. I really could use some help with EVERYTHING. Today’s question. Can I paint both of my bathrooms the same color? I have already painted one in the color “Raib” by Sherwin Williams. I have another can of the paint and wonder if it is weird to paint the master bathroom in the same color. Choosing paint for the whole house is the most challenging thing. I never knew paint was going to be such a pain. I need help!!!!!i know what color palette I want to use but which color where? What looks right where? I’m STUCK. So back to my first question. Can I safely paint both bathrooms the same color and not screw up right out of the gate??????SONEBODY STOP ME!!!!!

    I meant the color “Rain” . Seriously, who out there is good at choosing while house colors? Here is a picture of the colors I would like to do the house in. My mom picked out the material years ago and I am fixing up my house in her honor and going to leave my house to her great great great grandchildren.

    Yes, you can paint both bathrooms the same color if that is the shade you like. It is all about your taste and what you want to live with. The rooms are separate from each other so it really does not matter but it is nice to try and keep some cohesiveness to your painting colors throughout your home. Grab a color chart or a color wheel and select which colors you like best and what will go with them if you want to change a little. Keep in mind what furnishings you have and the décor you want.

    Why not. Your house... your taste. You know the color pallet so get some sample color cards and tape them up in the rooms you want to paint. Leave them up for a few days and look at them at different times of the day. Colors change with changes in natural and artificial light. They may look great in bright daylight but off at dusk, nightime, and artificial light,

    The paint salesman or person in that dept is very knowledgeable. Don’t be afraid to ask.

  • Sure, paint them the same color! Honestly, I think picking out paint colors is one of the most difficult things. We are frugal, but were gifted two hours with an interior decorator when we moved in. It was the best thing. She came in helped me pick all of the colors for our walls, floors, and cabinets in less than an hour. Best investment ever. It might be an option for you. Good luck!

    What colors do you like? You favorites. When I had the right to re-do MY room I want with blue/white panelling, white ceiling, beige carpet and Red on white sheer curtains. Also had white furniture. It was me then. Me now is to deal with the plain vanilla kind of apartment painting.

    As we used to say, "Do your own thing." You have to live there and someone else's idea will take it away.

    How do different colors make you feel? How do you want to feel when you walk into the master bath? (Different than the other bathroom?) Do you want to create a sense of calm or do you want it to be bright and vibrant? There are no rules since you are not preparing to sell.

  • All my bathrooms are painted the same color. There are no rules, do what suits you. By the time the generations down the line inherit the home, tastes, styles and trends will have changed several times over. Paint what makes you happy. Do it old school way, pull out a color wheel! Enlist the help of a designer, they are not as expensive as you might think. If you are using a stand alone type paint store, they can help you too. My HD and Lowes are staffed by high school and college kids, they know nothing about color coordination, much less owning a home.
