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.

From the estimate to final walk through, every aspect was done in a friendly and professional manner. Could not be more pleased with the final product, a beautifully stained bow and kitchen window. Jose' and his helper did an excellent job and went above and beyond to make sure we were completely satisfied with the work. Second time using Spectrum and I highly recommend them.

We just had our deck stained and are beyond satisfied. Everyone from the young ladies that set up the estimates to the crew that does the work were very professional and friendly. The 2 gentleman worked hard until the project was absolutely complete. Our deck looks fantastic! Thank you and we look forward to doing more business with you.

Very professional, prompt and reliable. Liked the estimating and contracting process. Contract was well prepared. The crew showed up timely, worked efficiently. Pam from Seela's (color consult) was a fabulous perk of Spectrum and she is awesome!

Hello - I can't tell you how completely satisfied I am with the work done/the workers and their attitude/ the efficiency/ the wonderful way the day went. I will tell anyone who asks that your company and staff are the very best in my 40 years of hiring someone to work in my home. The new ethic is totally different and you hold the good standards that make the work pleasant, pleasing and profitable for both sides! Thank you very much!

Our master bedroom and bath have never looked so beautiful- thanks to Spectrum Painting. Throughout the entire job the staff was professional, courteous, knowledgeable, honest and most caring of my concerns as a homeowner.

Spectrum Painting was recommended to us by our fence company when we recently installed a picket fence.. They did a great job. They arrived punctually, were highly professional and made sure that the job was done properly. I would definitely recommend them and use them again.

Have used Spectrum Painting for interior painting of our kitchen/nook, dining and living rooms as well as power washing of our deck. Spectrum is a very professional, efficient and thorough contractor and the results are excellent. From initial booking through site survey, cost estimate, contracting, scheduling, on time arrival, schedule adherence, friendliness of crew, clean up and follow up, they excel. Will not hesitate to use Spectrum again soon.
