Painting any room in your house can be a problem. Of course if you get the color wrong, you can always repaint over it, but who would like to waste money and time repainting an area if you don’t really have to.
One of the most commonly judged rooms in the house is the restroom, so once you’ve made up your mind to give the room a fresh lick of paint, and you’re happy with your chosen decor, you will then need to choose the right color.
By taking the steps below you can ensure that you are painting your bathroom that perfect color.
1. Decide whether you will just be painting your bathroom, or if you will be redecorating.
2. If you’re repainting although not changing all the various other things within the bathroom, you will want to opt for a color similar to the one you have. If you are redecorating the whole room entirely, you will need to choose the style first, and then base your paint color around that.
3. When you know what style your bathrooms will be, whether altogether new, or perhaps the same, visit the local hardware store and choose color samples which you think may match your room.
4. If time permits, take the samples back home and hold them against one of the walls of your bathroom so you can see more or less how each color would look. Also hold the samples towards the different objects within the room, such as a shower curtain or rug.
After completing these steps you ought to be able to select a color for the bathroom. You should remember that you might have to repeat a few of these steps many times to get the color that you need. Choosing the right paint color for just about any room takes time, and it’s certainly not a process that should be rushed.
Remember, your bathroom is one of your smaller rooms in your house, and that means that dark colors could make the bathroom appear even smaller. Essentially, unless you have a very large bathroom, you will need to make sure you choose a light shade of paint.
