How to Maximize Your Powder Room with Color

Powder rooms are the jewel box of home decorating. A powder room doesn't have to be too in-sync with the rest of your decorating palette. You can also choose to take color and design cues from the rest of the house, but amp up the style to make it a beautiful little retreat. Don't forget the accessories that complete the luxurious look of your powder room. Lighting, linens, and artwork can tie everything together with your new bold color.

You Don't Have to Worry About Making the Powder Room Look Larger

In your powder room or any other small space, color is the quickest and easiest way to create instant style. The beauty of a small room is that you are not trying to make it look larger because it's not possible and totally pointless. Instead, focus on choosing bold or dark colors that you'd never use in a small room. Here are five paint colors that will look large in your tiny powder room.


Peony 2079-30 | Benjamin Moore

A vibrant fuchsia like Benjamin Moore's Peony, is a daring paint color choice, even for a powder room. A small room that is used only briefly can handle a strong and cheerful color like this. Creamy white trim, dark wood or tile floors, and a white stone vessel sink can balance this bold paint color. All shades of pink and peach are exceptionally flattering to skin tone in a vanity mirror, but a bright fuchsia may need some help. Decorate your fuchsia powder room with soft lighting to minimize the brightness and glare of vibrant wall color.


Marine Blue 2059-10 | Benjamin Moore

Deep blue can be a surprisingly glamorous paint color choice for a powder room. The secret to using a dark blue, like Benjamin Moore's Marine Blue, is to pair it with crisp white, metallic accents, and a fabulous light fixture. Swap out the usual bathroom mirror for a luxe style with a glistening and ornate gold or silver frame.


Peppercorn SW 7674 | Sherwin-Williams

The secret to choosing a dark paint color like Sherwin-Williams Peppercorn is planning your lighting carefully. Wall sconces on either side of your powder room's vanity mirror can illuminate the wall, and a delicate chandelier can add ambient light overhead. To add a touch of glamor, consider using a metallic silver or pale blue paint or metallic finish on the ceiling to enhance the chandelier's glow and add extra light to the room.

Gingery SW 6363 | Sherwin-Williams

For Craftsman or transitional decorating style, a rich neutral color like Sherwin-Williams Gingery adds drama without straying from the overall vibe of the home. A warm yet vibrant rust or brown is a great alternative to the traditional red colors used in many powder rooms. Brushed metallic accessories and natural stone finishes pair beautifully with this color.


In the Tropics CSP-640 | Benjamin Moore

Benjamin Moore’s In the Tropics is a refreshing paint color choice for a beach-inspired powder room that needs some drama. While green may not be your first paint color choice for a bathroom, teal has just enough blue to keep making it more flattering. A versatile teal like this can be paired with natural woods and accessories, or made more luxurious with a glamorous mirror and light fixture.

People happy with our services

Spectrum team was diligent, respectful, hard working and a pleasure to have here!
Joseph C. | Jun/29/2016
One of the very best you will find in this area. Highly competent, punctual and with an aim to please. Spectrum has painted most of the interior of my home and most recently, my large outdoor deck. When they are here, I can relax knowing they will treat my home like it's their own. There's an added comfort knowing that there's a responsive team leader present on each job to whom I can address any questions or concerns. Don't go for the low-end companies. Price is what you pay, but lasting value is what you get.

The Spectrum Team always delivers perfection. Reliable, professional, and responsive. Our #1 service provider. We have counted on them for 10 years. We have them come often to paint, spackle, do hangings, mend trim, fix siding, seal shower, refresh grout. Love the "Painter for a Day." They are the BEST around. Thank you!

Absolutely never go with anyone else. Always an amazing job and always worth every penny. They clean up and it's like they were never here when they're done. Our crew today was Marcin, Alejandro and Jose and we were thrilled with the results. Previous Review: I absolutely loved everything about Spectrum. We did not have an easy process but they were great the whole way through! First, about a month ago I called and spoke to Rich about an estimate based on square footage. He gave me one that I knew was out of our budget, but then worked with us to see what we can get done for what we could afford. We ended up well within our price range and with a beautiful painting job and flat walls. We were asking them to come to see our new condo during closing so that they could paint before we moved initially. Finally our sellers decided we will close on a Tuesday and Rich came in that day, gave us a hard number and had his guys come paint on Thursday!!! I had an incredible experience on a very strict budget and cannot recommend Spectrum enough.

Appreciated promptness of appointment, knowledge of job and procedure. Crew was well prepared and helpful.
Mary M. | Aug/30/2016
We had Spectrum Painting power wash and paint the outside of our house. They did such a fantastic job that we tripled the scope of the project during the process and the results are phenomenal. We wound up having them do the siding, window trim, doors, lights and much more. The end results is better then I expected. The entire Spectrum team was amazing throughout the process and on several occasions went above and beyond. I would highly recommend them.

Perfect work, responsive to ideas and questions. Clean, meticulous workspace when finished. Have known Rich for years - he and his team are the real deal - exactly what you would hope for when hiring someone to do work at your home. Would not use anyone else for painting/floor coating but Spectrum!
