Top 5 Sherwin Williams Bathroom Paint Colors

When you put together a bathroom you want to make it feel fresh and clean without giving off any hospital vibes, right? I chose these colors because to me a bathroom while most of the time they are small, you want to it to feel bright and bright in this case = clean! Crisp neutral walls can do just that!  I am going to chat a little about the colors, the tones/hues, how versatile they can be and share with you some designs I put together. So let’s jump in to my top 5 Sherwin Williams bathroom paint colors!


SEA SALT: This is by far one of the most popular bathroom colors (or house colors, for that matter) that I’ve seen in a long time. It has all of the cool, crisp vibes while also making your bathroom feel like a spa! SW nailed this formula to be a great neutral paint that is also a color. “I want this greenish paint” might cause a little bit of stress but don’t worry. Sea Salt can be paired with some crisp whites, wood tones, or even traditional walnut cabinets successfully.

Cabinet Pairs: White, Gray, Wood Tones
Decor Pairs: Whites, Grays, Wood tones, antique silver or pops of muted colors (i.e: green brings out the green tones in the paint like in this design)

LIGHT FRENCH GRAY: This is a gray that I’ve seen paired with wood floors and wood cabinets more often than not. It is truly a versatile color and right smack dab in between warm and cool. Just a hair warmer than its cousin Repose Gray that is so popular but doesn’t give you a color with no depth. It’s perfect if you love pops of color/decor, too!

Cabinet Pairs: White, Wood Tones
Decor Pairs: Whites, wood tones, black, metals, or muted pops of color

GAUNTLET GRAY: My guilty pleasure is Gauntlet Gray, for sure! This is a tricky color but if you do it right it can be incredible! I’ve seen this color in just about every type of room possible and even some gorgeous exteriors, too. It’s a very rich color so make sure that you have bright “daylight” LED bulbs or a lot of natural lighting to stay away from the dungeon effect!

Cabinet Pairs: White OR use this color ON the cabinets and go for a lighter shade similar to rock candy.
Decor Pairs: Metals, black, or rich wood tones

LATTICE: This color is super easy to manipulate for any color scheme or decor. I chose this one because its a warm greige that is very light and easy on the eyes. You can mix and match with crisp white or grays to achieve virtually any design style. It’s given the phrase “white is the new gray” a whole new meaning, you will get the light and airy feel especially in a bathroom that maybe does not have any natural lighting!

Cabinet Pairs: White, gray, wood tones, black, or vintage white
Decor Pairs: Warm grays, beige, and antique whites

ROCK CANDY: This is one of my favorite “clean” colors! It brightens even the darkest of rooms and pulls together any tone from any color. If you are need a boost of light and fresh, this is the color for you. It will achieve the spa feel without feeling cold like a hospital. It goes great with deep blues and even makes traditional wood cabinets/floors really pop! It’s the perfect background color for bathrooms!

Cabinet Pairs: White, Gray, Wood 
Decor Pairs: Blues, Pinks, and cool grays

#1: Take into account the original wall color. If you aren’t priming lets say a beige wall color, then your paint choices are going to come out a little darker/warm than the swatch. Always do a test patch and check it out! Home Depot sells these little clear sheets so you don’t have to actually paint ON the wall (find them here).

#2: Check your lightbulbs. I’ve chatted with quite a few people who end up unhappy with their paint choice because of a dark or yellow tint. Changing lightbulbs instead of re-painting is MUCH easier. Use an LED Daylight blub! We use THESE and they have totally changed the way our paint color looks without natural lighting but also is not harsh medical lighting, haha.

#3. Find your inspiration and go from there. Even designers need some inspiration! Find a bathroom that you love the style, design, and decor. It’s harder to start with a blank canvas without any direction. Type the paint color into Pinterest and you’ll get tons of real life ideas, too!
