Hi ! I am looking for guidance on what colour to paint walls in newly fitted out downstairs cloakroom. It's only got a small window and when the light is off it's quite a dark room. I am rubbish at picking paint so any advice would be gratefully received !

that looks lovely. a light duck egg or seafoam colour would go very well with the gray tiles and still be light enough in a small space.

where did you get your fittings from? I'm just starting to plan a bathroom and shower room for my extension.

I'd just go for white tbh. If you had white tiles I'd say a colour but with grey and little light then go for white.

I'd accessorise with coloured towels and bathmat maybe purple or as above, duck egg.

How about crowne sail white? It's a white with a slight hint of grey. This may also help for inspiration

Think I'd go for white and add some colourful splashes with accessories to warm it up. (Boring I know!)

Hmm, I think you should go dark. It's a small, dark room already - going dark will help by kind of blurring out the corners. It will also make the space more dramatic, more stylish. How about one of these:

Farrow and Ball Salon Drab:

Inchrya Blue:



Hague Blue:

I'd also definitely go dark. Painted my new windowless understairs cloakroom in Dulux Stonewashed Blue and I love it - sorry no pics. I think a small room can take a strong colour - I don't think I'd be bold enough to do it in a larger room in the house hmm
