When we plan and design our bathroom, we frequently opt for a range of tiles, stone and waterproof materials. However, an oft-overlooked decorative element is the simple and effective option of paint. Paint works exceptionally well in the bathroom, and despite common misconceptions, is perfect for wet and humid spaces. Not only available in a range of colours and styles, paint is also extremely inexpensive when compared with other alternative wall treatments.

Today we’re going to be showing you some stylish ways to employ paint in your bathroom, along with a few helpful tips and tricks. Sound good? Read on below and learn more with our handy guide!

1. Look at mixing and pairing colours with your tiles and/or other decorative elements in your bathroom

2. For added elegance opt for a different shade of your existing tiling. This room is a brilliant earthy and luxurious example

3. If you are worried about waterproofing your room, opt for a half wall of tiles, and finish with brighter wall paint

4. Tile certain ‘wet’ areas of your bathroom, while leaving the rest open for a fresh and lively paint hue

5. Always choose water resistant paint varieties, and remember to seal your bathroom or toilet appropriately before applying any wall treatments – especially paint

6. Remember that ceramic does not necessarily indicate water resistance, you need to protect your walls correctly, or paint will crinkle and flake from your walls
