Hello, yellow! Waking up to bright and bold color is an obvious way to give your bathroom an energizing effect, but it’s also great because yellow hues like Daisy can brighten a space where natural lighting might be limited. If you’re worried about yellow being too much, simply use it in a smaller dose as an accent color.

Cavern Clay

Bold doesn’t have to mean bright. This rich shade of burnt orange makes a statement without the intensity of a neon hue thanks to its deep level of color saturation. Pairing Cavern Clay with white trim and brass accessories allows this color to stand out as a bold neutral.

Exuberant Pink

Sometimes a pop of color is all you need to make a space feel more energized. Exuberant Pink has a saturated hue that’s great for adding a subtle burst of color in the bathroom. Explore using this popping shade of pink in an unexpected place like a vanity or the fifth wall.

If you’re torn between choosing a bathroom color that’s traditional or invigorating, why not find a hue that’s a little bit of both? Indigo features a classic shade of blue with a little more saturation. Pair this hue with crisp shades of white to create striking contrast.

  1. Hi There:
    I am painting my bathroom. I am getting my vanity and doors painted Pussywillow. There is no windows in my bathroom. What color would you suggest to go with Pussywillow? I do like grey color paint.

  2. Great article! Choosing the right colors for your bathroom can have a significant impact on the overall look and feel of the space. Energizing bathroom colors, such as bright yellows, greens, and blues, can create a refreshing and invigorating atmosphere that can help start your day on the right foot. It’s important to choose colors that complement your design style and personal preferences, while also taking into consideration factors such as lighting, wall color, and flooring. Adding pops of color through accessories, such as towels and rugs, can also be a great way to incorporate energizing colors into your bathroom without committing to a full wall color. Overall, energizing bathroom colors can be a great way to infuse your daily routine with a sense of vibrancy and positivity.
