What color should I paint my small guest bath?

Answered
I am removing 37 year old wallpaper but keeping the ceramic tiles which come up to four feet on the walls. The tile is slightly textured and is beige in color. The shower enclosure is tiled as well with even the drop ceiling in the shower tiled. The tile is in such good shape, I don't want to remove it. I want to paint the upper walls in a good color since we are trying to sell our house. The vanity top will be a lighter granite. Trying to show color with photos. Don't know why they are sideways.

    Lighter colors would be best to try and make it seem larger than it is. Pastels work great.

      Coordinate it with the adjoining bed room. You can also paint it a solid color then take it off with masking tape and paint it in a coordinating color. Then remove the tape and you will have wallpaper look that if you are tired of you can paint right over it and not have to contend with removing paper.

  • I think of beige the way I would look at skin-tones; some skin tomes can't take certain colors.. I think many varieties of blues would look nice. A sunny yellow would make it much brighter. It really will matter how you stage it for sale.

    It is best to stay with neutral color especially when trying to sell your house. Choose a beige slightly lighter than your tile. Put pops of color with towels and don't put a bath mat or toilet rug down when your house is being shown.

    I would recommend a pale shade of the tile to blend everything together.Keep it simple as chances are the new owners will re-paint anyway.good luck

    Selling your house? Neutral is the way to go. I'd go cream. If you want to pop with color, use it in patterned towels and floor mat.
    No window? How about a large mirror to reflect light or a picture of a window. Keep it simple.

    Colors simular to Copen Blue and Cafe Cream. You will want to keep it to a lighter or neutral shade. Those colors seem pretty in right now and should be appealing to buyers(: Best of luck!

    more details of your bathroom would be great. Vanity, floors, wood trim, etc. I would definitely keep it neutral if you decide to sell the home in the future

    I would recommend using styles that match the age of the home. A light beige or off white would give it a vintage look. I would avoid bright and bold colors because they can be off putting. OR you can use a light robin's egg blue which would match the time period and it looks modern as well.

    You can paint it any color you like! Beige is a neutral so it goes with everything. My bathroom was late 60s or early 70s and I totally redid the whole thing except for the shower!
