Help With Brown Bathroom!


Hi. I am not sure if this is the type of suggestions you are looking for but here goes. I would paint the bathroom walls a light beige, the trim and cabinets white. Then have towels and other accessories that have the 3 colors in them. It will make the bathroom seem bigger and coordinated. Just my suggestions

I would try the "oops" paints at Home Depot or any paint store, they are usually $4-$5 a gallon and browns/neutrals and usually available. Just make sure it's at least an eggshell finish. I did my living room trim in dark brown which remind me of dark chocolate and then the walls in a lighter chocolate milk brown. Associating it will chocolate seems to help! You might want to check out www.tincansally.com, there might be a Hershey's light switch cover or you can send in a tin and have her make one. That would tie it all together. Good luck!

Useing "Kilz" primer paint worked for my very dark brown trim. Be sure to ventilate the room until dry, the smell of that stuff can really get to some people.

WOW! Brown!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everything brown well you can relax its not a bad color. Just need to change a few tone lighter for the things that ae not so expensive in your bathroom. Why don't you try light beige or fawn shade contrast to go with it. like the shower curtain the wall colors.

That's what I would suggest. Beige is a lighter color but will compliment the brown.

Right
Going too white/light would emphasize the brown

However, I hope the OP hasn't been waiting four years to decide what to do
