When it comes to decorating a bathroom, a bog standard bright white may feel like the easiest solution, but is it the best?
There is a level of fear around choosing the right colour for any room, and especially in a bathroom it may feel daunting to go wild with some colour. But it has the power to completely change a space and create that spa like sanctuary.
Not sure where to start? Here are some of the best Dulux bathroom paint colours to add colour and personality to your space for 2024 and beyond.
The Best Dulux Bathroom Paint Colours Ideas For 2024
1.Create A Restorative Feeling With Green
I’m a huge fan of the Dulux Heritage range, and if you’re looking for a more luxurious feel or a specific colour for a traditional space, then they’re definitely worth considering.
Stone Green is on-trend and perfect for creating a relaxing bathroom space. Pair with white for a crisp, natural contrast and intersperse black accents for a touch of definition.

2. Combine Earthy Neutrals
Earthy neutrals are set to continue their popularity through 2024. There’s something comforting and relaxing on the eye about them.
Overtly Olive is one of my favourite olive, earthy green shades, pair with creams, whites, browns and some black accents throughout the space to pull the look together.

3. Introduce An Unexpected Pop of Pink
Ever thought about using pink in a bathroom?
This unexpected pop of pink looks beautiful with the separation of colour with the white dado rail and introduction of green through the curtains. It brings warmth and colour without feeling overly feminine.
4. Use A Warm, Modern Neutral
The most popular neutral for a reason… Egyptian Cotton is a warm, beautiful shade that is so versatile for every room in the home.
It can be a great alternative to a bright white as it brings more warmth. Because of its yellow undertones it’s also great for windowless spaces and North facing bathrooms.

5. Add Some Definition With Denim Drift
Consider using a darker hue for your bathroom, if you lean into the darkness it can help to create a cosy, spa-like sanctuary.
Denim Drift is a great shade, it has warm blue undertones and pairs well with other blue shades or more defining hues like black to add warmth and depth to the space.

6. Dare To Go Black
Black doesn’t have to be an oppressive colour in a space if it’s used in considered and measured ways.
A simple half wall panelling look with a black like this adds definition and modernity to a bathroom. It looks striking and is perfect for a modern bathroom design.
The trick is to opt for a shade that is not a true black as it brings a bit more warmth and depth to the space.

7. Create A Gorgeous Contrast With Teal & White
Teal is one of those forgotten colours, but it can totally transform an interior.
It’s a bit warmer than a navy blue and it’s a sumptuous colour that looks great in traditional and modern home decor schemes.
Pair with other royal colours like green, even if it’s just through foliage and house plants for a warm, complementary feel.

8. Create A Feature Wall With Colour
If you’re not feeling brave enough to use colour throughout, opt to add colour to just one feature wall. This would work well on a bath or vanity sink wall.
Tranquil Dawn is an on-trend, soft sage green which looks beautiful in a bathroom. The beauty of this colour is that it pairs so well with both neutral, pastels and more defining shades.

9. Use Blue For A Relaxed, Coastal Feel
If you have a windowless or North facing bathroom, blue will only make that space feel cooler. But if you have a sloped ceiling in your bathroom with lots of light or a sunny South facing room it can help to neutralise the intensity of the sun and create a beautiful balance.
Celestial is a gorgeous shade that brings a really relaxed, costal feel with it.
Paint Colours Used: Moon Sand and Celestial
10. Half Wall Panelling For Depth & Character
This is one of my favourite bathroom looks using Dulux and it’s a pre-cursor of what colours we can expect in 2024.
Richer, warmer colours are going to be at the centre of interior design over the coming year and Brave Ground brings the perfect balance of warmth, depth and definition to a space.
Use on a half wall panelling look like this for a crisp contrast that helps to draw the eye up, giving the illusion of a bigger space.

11. Colour Drench The Ceiling
Colour drenching usually involves painting the entire wall and ceiling in the same colour, but this is a great alternative that is a functional choice in a bathroom.
The white tiles add some brightness to the space, whilst we get lost in this gorgeous forest shade, the result is an enveloping, cosy space that helps to create that relaxing sanctuary that we all desire from a bathroom.

12. Create A Cosy Sanctuary With A Deep Blue
Another colour that’s perfect for creating that relaxing, sumptuous feel in a space is a good navy blue.

13. A Cooler Neutral For Definition
You can’t go wrong with a classic grey hued paint. Warm Pewter is a gorgeous grey that has warmer undertones than a traditional grey. Pair with natural materials such as wood and rattan for an earthy, warm feel.
A perfect look for creating a cosy and inviting small downstairs toilet or bathroom.
