With spring upon us, it’s time to start thinking about small bathroom makeovers you can make for your South Shore home. While large renovations require planning and money, a small makeover can be done with minimal resources, yet can turn your bathroom into something entirely new. One of the easiest ways to begin small bathroom makeovers is to consider color. Plain white walls can make your bathroom look open and welcoming, but choosing new colors can have all sorts of effects. Consider the latest trends for 2012 in bathroom paint colors, and decide on a scheme that works best for your home. Here are to top bathroom color trends for 2012.
2012 will be a year in which bold and bright colors are on their way out, especially when it comes to bathrooms. Forget about reds and pinks, and make your South Shore bathroom a calm place that suggests relaxation. Blues of various shades are in vogue this year. Go for Montpelier, a steely and grayish blue that will give your bathroom a colder feel. Conversely, go for a color called Amethyst Shadow, more on the purple side of the color spectrum. Amethyst Shadow adds a small amount of brightness without being ostentatious or over the top.
Other calming colors for small bathroom makeovers in 2012 are grays, also calming for your South Shore bathroom. Grays such as Stardust and Nimbus Gray are smoky shades that look exquisite without being abrasive. These colors can give your bathroom a dreamy and calm look that is right on trend for 2012.
Earth Tones and Neutral Tones
As with calming colors, earth tones and neutral colors are great for small bathroom makeovers this year. Because it is so open, white is always a favorite for bathroom walls, and can offer some relief if you’re going from bright and loud colors. If white is too conventional for your tastes, however, you can opt for subtle off-whites, such as Pashmina and White Dove. These allow you to be daring without going overboard.
As far as Earth tones go, you can’t go wrong with pale greens and browns. Such tones as Farm Fresh and Fresh Olive are perfect for remaking your bathroom into a more toned-down or outdoor theme. In particular, go for Earth tones if you plan on remaking your bathroom with plants or flowers.
Small bathroom makeovers are an easy way to completely change the feel of your bathroom without breaking the bank. Knowing exactly what colors are in style this year can help you design a bathroom that you can be proud of showing off to your guests.
