How to Choose Popular Bathroom Cabinet Colors

by Elias Deukmajian | Bathroom Remodel

Choosing your new home decor is one of the most enjoyable aspects of moving into a new home. This can also come about due to seasonal changes or anytime you’re inspired to change the aesthetics of your home or individual rooms. It can be challenging to decide what type of design you want, and even more challenging to match the furniture, linens, and everything else.

One of the hardest parts of home decor is choosing the cabinetry to have a cohesive look with the rest of your home’s aesthetic. This can be especially difficult in rooms such as the bathroom, which tends to have dramatically different lighting than anywhere else in the household.

This can give you even more trouble if your in an apartment or pre-furnished home for which you had little to no input about the design of the cabinetry. In times like this, the only option you have is the color of the cabinetry. Fear not, you can still have a custom look even if you only paint or stain your cabinets. Below, we’ll give you some basic information about how to choose the perfect cabinetry colors for your bathroom.

Your Personal Aesthetic

Before anything else, you need to determine the type of aesthetic you’re looking for. Keep in mind that typically, the bathroom should be a place of comfort. Here is where you and your guests should feel secluded and at peace, especially you, since you will presumably be taking baths and showers in this room as well. If not, simply focus on the comfort of your guests.

Even here there is a slight exception. If you feel you want to make your bathroom fun and exciting with bright colors such as green and yellow, by all means, go for it! This can be a great design for children’s bathrooms, especially.

Popular Bathroom Aesthetics


People tend to get the “farmhouse” and “rustic” aesthetics mixed up. Although they are similar, they are not the same, so you must determine this line before moving forward with your home decor project. The best colors for a farmhouse-style bathroom are white and brown (from as light as a sandy brown to dark mahogany). For a rustic look, on the other hand, your focus in color and texture would rather emphasize more abrasive textures and veer toward darker browns and other deep, earth-toned colors. Cabinetry for a farmhouse-style bathroom should be dainty or minimalist and smooth. Going too big, clunky, or rough in texture with the cabinetry would push you more toward a rustic look.


Modern aesthetics are often manifested in one of two ways: they are either largely metallic in nature or feature lots of transparent, glass pieces. The bottom line of modern home design is sleek and minimalist with a subtle-yet-satisfying emphasis on geometric figures. For a modern look, you should definitely stick with silver, perhaps even gray, chrome, white, and black.

The cabinetry for your bathroom to fulfill a modern look should be stainless steel or glass, or you could possibly get away with 0..with the right tone and texture.

Personalize Your Bathroom

If you don’t want to match a specific aesthetic and would rather go with the most trendy colors in home decor right now, a few of the most popular bathroom colors are currently:

  • Creamy White
  • Charcoal
  • Navy Blue
  • Seafoam Green
  • Taupe
  • Ash Gray
All of these colors are perfect for complementing the lighting in the bathroom, providing a soft and welcoming environment in which you can feel secure and relaxed enough to take your time in a bath or shower, and generally center yourself while preparing to go out.
