Best pink for a bathroom: pink bathroom ideas

While blue may be the most popular paint colour for a bathroom there is no reason why you can’t – and shouldn’t – paint your bathroom pink.

Pink is a lovely colour which can be warm or cool, depending on the undertones, making it well suited to a bathroom and a bathroom suite.

There are a lot of different shades of pink, finding the right shade for your own bathroom depends on what kind of impression you want your bathroom to make: soft blush pink = soft and cosy paradise, creamy-beige pink = modern cool Scandi, deep fuchsia = big statement and wow-factor.

Bathrooms are a great place to experiment so I would go for the deepest pink you can handle, but there is nothing wrong with keeping it classic and chic either.

Matte and eggshell paint isn’t ideal for bathrooms. You want your paint to be hardwearing since bathrooms deal with a lot of moisture so your best bet is paint with a satin or gloss finish. You can get bathroom specific paint, but it’s not essential.

What pink colour makes a small bathroom look bigger?

For a room to look bigger you want light to reflect and bounce around the space, therefore, the lighter and glossier the paint, the bigger the room will look.

Should bathroom walls be lighter or darker?

There is no one size fits all when it comes to light or dark walls in a bathroom, monochromatic looks can make it feel light and airy, but then a white suite can look really smart when it ‘pops’ against a dark backdrop.

Speaking from experience here, I have a pink bathroom sink I’m obsessed with; it wasn’t very expensive and it looks as good right now as it did the day we installed it.
