It can provide a wonderful facelift for a room at little expense. You can use decorative paint finishes or a traditional paint finish.

Generally most people’s bathrooms are small, therefore the colors that are selected  are most frequently very light and airy, often soft pastels or natural neutrals, this allows the space to seem large as the light reflects making the room brighter.

If dark colors are used it encloses the space as much of the light is absorbed.

White is probably the most common color used, but it does provide a great base for adding accents, be it accessories like towels, soaps or tiled or wallpaper borders and stencilled friezes.
