tiny water closet off kitchen..

 I have a tiny w/c off my kitchen which I am thinking of painting dark dark brown which would sort of go with kitchen (cream and taupe).   It is 54 by 32  with sink facing toilet long way, door on long side of course. A squeeze for sure. Would a dark midnight blue be better? Sink is a pain but cannot find anything better...corner sink would be good but plumbing is an issue.  Any ideas?  Thanks.  Should I paint out ceiling too or leave it white?

I feel the same the dark colors would just not help you brighten the space.

I would try painting only one wall with strong dark color, otherwise it might overpower the rest of a already small space.

Hello janetita,

I think you should definitely keep the ceiling white, to visually heighten the space, and stick with a dark brown if you want it to flow with your kitchen. Here are some dark bathrooms to inspire you:
