tiny water closet

janetita's picture

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?

Clearly diverse opinions on whether to go dark or light, but just to add my two cents worth: our bathroom has dark blue tile and was painted a light blue and had a dark blue ceiling that matched the tile. I thought the light blue was icky with the tile, and immediately envisioned white, but originally was going to keep the dark blue ceiling - I thought it was kind of cool. But the painter pointed out that a dark blue ceiling would reflect an icky bluish light on my face and did I really want to see my face in an unflattering light like that first thing in the morning? Good point. I had it painted out white. And even though the walls originally were not really a very dark colour, the bathroom does feel 3 times bigger with the lighter walls and ceiling. My personal preference is white and light colours though. What does the rest of your house look like? If you prefer light and white colours too, then you probably wouldn't like a dark bathroom.
