Ask a Designer - Master bathroom


"I need some help for a temporary fix until next year. What color would you paint the cabinets and walls.  My master bedroom is a BM beige."

Halo Design's suggestion:

I would be happy to be able to provide some suggestions to your ensuite!  It looks like you receive great natural light in this space.  You mentioned that your bedroom has a Benjamin Moore grey/beige color.  I will suggest colors from Benjamin Moore since you used it in your bedroom.  I have included Benjamin Moore’s Revere pewter as a reference. It is one of my favorite warm grey colors.  I think it would work well with the existing floor tile and tub and tub surround color as well as stone countertop color. 

I have also included Rodeo and Agreeable gray which have slightly different tones (Rodeo is a bit cooler when comparing to Revere pewter) 

I would leave the ceiling and window casing “white”.  A great white for door and window trim is Benjamin Moore decorator’s white.

Since this is a “temporary fix” until next year, I will make recommendations that are not costly. For the cabinets, they appear to be a wood in oak or maple with a stain finish.  I would suggest a paint finish for these cabinets as I assume you will be replacing the entire vanity including cabinet box, cabinet and drawers outright next year.  I would suggest Chelsea gray or iron mountain for the cabinet color. 

Changing the light fixtures would add a lot to the overall aesthetic as well.  I would suggest a nice pendant or ceiling light at the tub and a wall light above the vanity.  New hardware pulls would be nice.
