The One Color You Should NEVER Paint Your Bathroom

There’s one color you should absolutely never, ever paint your bathroom.  Can you guess what it is?

This is the color to avoid, my friends:  poop brown.  The above is a “before” photo of a client’s powder room. Small powder rooms should be little jewel boxes, so we chose a beautiful teal color that would pop against the black countertop and floors.

Please share the news with all your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and Google +.  Spread the word that this has to stop:  no more bathrooms the color of poop. Please. And thank you.

It looks fantastic. I so agree with this tip! When I moved in to my current house the first thing I did was paint both the poop brown and nursing baby green bathrooms.

This bathroom is in need of a nice lighting fixture as well!

Actually did this to my daughter’s bathroom. Had regrets as is was occurring. My husband’s comment was “Why are we painting the walls the color of s#%*?” It’s still there though…thanks for the motivation to make a change.

I wholeheartedly support no more poop walls. And to the point of the light fixture-please no more boob lights! The madness has got to stop!

When we bought our house five years ago, the previous owners had painted he entire house what I called peanut butter or paper bag brown. And I mean the entire house, ceilings and all. I’m no longer swimming and what you more accurately call “poop brown”, but there are still a few rooms that are holdouts….Thanks for bringing awareness to this horrific problem. For some reason, this color got a lot of traction in the early 2000. Much better colors this decade!

I was going to guess yellow, but brown is just as bad, if not worse! 🙂 Love the teal.

Any advice on how to nicely tell someone that their bathroom paint looks like poop ? She doesn’t use Facebook so I can’t send this blog to her……

You know she might LIKE her wall color, even if you and Kristie don’t.

I agree on the poop brown colour, when we bought our house the previous owners thought they would update the house by painting the inside and outside salmon pink. I think they got the colour on sale and we heard from neighbours a painter came in, taped the floor and window and spray painted everything. I mean everything, walls, inside of closets, doors, everywhere. But we were able to reduce the asking price as it wasn’t moving because of all the pink inside and out. I have been painting the walls for 3 years now and have the kids bathroom… Read more »

I had painted the plastic arrow
tops of my steel balustrarde fence with an expensive gold paint looked fantastic like Buckhingham palace
for a couple of days then faded to a dull brown. Is there a gold paint out there for outdoor
plastic ? Many thanks
