Small spaces need BIG COLORS

Posted by Amy Siders on September 12, 2022 0 Comments
Navigating paint colors and wall treatments for small spaces (like powder rooms, breakfast nooks, laundry rooms, and even main bathrooms can be daunting.
Will a dark color make your room a cave?
Will a bright color overwhelm your senses in a small space?
The answer to both of those questions is maybe.
Depends on the space.
Depends on the light.
Depends on you.
Color choice is very personal.
Waterhouse wants to let you know that whether you choose a moody blue or a vibrant pink, you can't go wrong.
Color can change.
Walls can be repainted.
We're all about trial and error. Taking risks with design.
Check out a few cool options for your small spaces...
Waterhouse wants to remind you to be strategic with color pairings.
The color here?
Farrow & Ball’s Carriage Green No. 94
Using a dark green paint color in this small bathroom blurs the lines of the room and made the room feel more expansive, since it’s harder to see where the corners come together. Pairing it with a creamy tile, white fixtures, matte black and gold accents keeps it from feeling overly cavernous.
Come to the Waterhouse showroom to fill your head (and your home) with colorful ideas!
Bathrooms can be small.
Powder rooms are small.
Just because they're small, doesn't mean they can't be BIG ON STYLE!
Want a quick DIY project for Sunday afternoon (when the Waterhouse bath & kitchen studio is closed?)
Why not try one of these daring colors to (literally) brighten up your space?
Shown here: Benjamin Moore’s Peony
Benjamin Moore’s Soot adorns the walls of this (not so small) main bathroom. Deep color on the walls makes the space more intimate, makes your gleaming white freestanding bathtub gleam even brighter and serves as an impressive backdrop to those chrome and crystal lighting fixtures.
You can get everything shown here (except the paint) from Waterhouse.
Moody contrasts and rich colors yield gorgeous and distinct spaces. This eye-catching mudroom project leans on Sherwin Williams’ Jasper for a memorable pop of color.
Waterhouse tip: All white will never go out of style—just remember to bring those other color elements in. Bathrooms, powder rooms, breakfast nooks, laundry rooms -- each and every one of these smaller spaces can benefit from a new color perspective.
Navigating paint colors for small spaces can feel daunting. After all, how do you balance personal preference with paint color trends? Whether the goal is a moody mudroom or a vibrant lounge we've been celebrating some Waterhouse-approved paint colors, tips, and takeaways for transforming small rooms into stylish jewel boxes.
This reading nook embraces nature’s vibrant side.
The color: Benjamin Moore’s Very Green
The tip: Don't be afraid of jewel-toned greens in small spaces -- think laundry rooms, bars, powder rooms. Because it relates back to nature, green is bright, without being overwhelming, while exuding vitality.
Where in the world would you see this on the walls in a bathroom?
Right here at Waterhouse, of course.
Colors in the correct shades, used in the proper space can be used to make your space feel timeless too.
Farrow & Ball Studio Green (No. 93) in this small breakfast nook proves that "trendy" colors can still garner timeless results.
Waterhouse never shies away from color.
We embrace trends whenever we can.
