Guest Bathroom Color Ideas

Not every homeowner realizes that the color they paint their rooms can have a huge impact on how people feel when they spend time in that room. While it’s important to take into consideration how different colors make you feel in each of the rooms of your home, it’s especially important to pay attention to the colors you use in the spaces where your guests will be when they come to visit you at your home. Color can affect how people feel differently, but certain colors will get the same reaction from most groups of people, and you can use these colors to influence how your guests feel when they are visiting your home. Before painting your guest bathroom, it’s a good idea to think about how the colors you are going to use will make people feel and decide if those are the emotions you want to inspire in your guests.


This is a classic and popular choice for bathrooms, and for good reason. It makes people think of sunshine, and they will automatically be happier after spending time in a yellow bathroom. It’s a very cheery color, and will make your bathroom seem bigger than it really is. In addition, it tends to have an uplifting and energizing effect on people, which is a perfect way to start the day when you are in the bathroom waking up.


Long considered the most restful color for the human eye, green is very popular in bathrooms as well, as it will both refresh and cheer up your guests. When used in a large amount, it tends to be calming to people in the room, but bathrooms are usually the perfect size that it will relieve stress and encourage unwinding. If you want your guests to feel like they are on vacation at a spa, then green is the right color choice for your bathroom.


Another great choice for your guest bathroom is to paint the walls a neutral color such as beige or gray, and then use a brighter color as an accent in the room. Neutral colors are incredibly versatile and will look great with most any color you want to use with them. White is an ideal choice for a guest bathroom, as it looks clean and refreshing and will make your guests feel like they are in a sanitary environment. Pairing white walls with a living plant or some bright curtains will keep the space from feeling sterile.

While each guest bathroom is different, paying attention to the color you use can have a huge impact on the feeling people get when they are in the room. Using these color choices as a general rule will give you a good starting point for picking the next color you are going to paint your bathroom. Remember that smaller rooms will feel like a cave if you paint the walls a very dark color, and light colors will open up any size space.
