Bathroom Cabinet Color FAQs

Should bathroom cabinets be lighter or darker than the walls?

We love when the cabinets are a different color than the bathroom walls. Don’t be scared to add a splash of color to your bathroom cabinets. It is the perfect place to have some fun with color. If you have a small space, you may want lighter walls to help brighten the whole space.

Typically cabinets end up being darker for this reason. However, we do love a nice crisp white cabinet in a bathroom design. Architectural Digest gives a few awesome tips on how to help lighten dark bathrooms such as layered lighting and adding extra reflective surfaces.

What appears to be the most popular bathroom cabinet color in 2022?

Looking at our list of bathroom makeovers it appears that different blue cabinet colors seem to really be making a splash in these DIY makeovers. From the classic Hale Navy-inspired color to a more muted Charcoal Blue, blues seem to be the new gray cabinet color when it comes to the bathroom.

Hello! Thank you for such an informative and really useful article, I am very glad that I came across it on the Internet. I also adhere to the opinion that if there is an opportunity to paint the furniture and update it in this way, then this should definitely be done because much more money will be spent on buying similar new furniture. And I also really liked the color of the Hale Navy Color Match in Behr Paint, I think it is really worth the money, in the photographs this color is just amazing and will perfectly suit my bathroom.
