The best bathroom colors for you will depend on your design preferences and how bold or understated you want your bathroom to appear. Green is a favorite home decor color these days, and there are several shades of green that will complement the bathrooms in your home, whether the space is for you, your guests or your children.
Olive green is a classy shade that gives the bathroom a welcoming but rustic feel, so it's good for the guest bathroom or powder room. This variation of green is not visually overpowering, so it's perfectly fine to paint the whole bathroom in this color even if the space is small. Accenting the wall paneling with gold or bronze paint is ideal and will match olive green well. Olive green plant arrangements, like synthetic vines and white grapes in gold or bronze pots, can grace the bathroom counter or the shelves above the toilet, and olive green scented candles look good against the bathroom's marble countertop.
Lime green is a vibrant shade that works well in a child or teen's bathroom and complements dark gray and black well. Adding bright green handles to black bathroom cabinets, or painting lime green stripes on a black vanity adds a modern burst of color to a classic furniture piece. The shade is too overwhelming to use on all the bathroom walls, so apply fluorescent green to the shortest wall in the bathroom for a tasteful burst of color. Lime green shower curtains and bathmats make the bathroom especially inviting; your kids can add colors like blue and purple to the bathroom decor to complement this bright shade of green.
Vivid and refreshing are the feelings that come to mind when you see Kelly green, making it an ideal shade for the bathroom since this is one of the first rooms you enter at the start of the day. Metallic shades look good with Kelly green, particularly bronze and silver, so bathroom cabinets in these colors will accent a green accent wall well. Kelly green linens on a bronze towel rack are both elegant and modern, along with Kelly green scented candles on silver shelves installed on the wall.
Emerald green gives a sense of royal elegance to the bathroom and adds a classy but eye-catching color addition to a neutral-colored bathroom. Dark shades of brown pair well with emerald green, so walls painted in a cinnamon or cumin color will stand out with green-painted paneling. Emerald green linens trimmed in gold or silver make the bathroom look even more regal, so a bronze basket filled with these decorative towels and washcloths is a practical and attractive addition to the master bedroom. You can further personalize this space by painting the linen closet in the bathroom light green instead of painting the walls.
