I have been sponsored by the Glidden® brand paint for PPG to write this post but the thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
Our water closet has been painted!
It's a subtle change but we love it!
I chose a light neutral for the space because I knew that whatever color we picked would also be used in our master closet since the rooms are sort of connected via the rest of our master bathroom.
We had three requirements for the color:
- It needed to look good in natural light (our water closet)
- It needed to look good in artificial light (our master closet) and most importantly...
- It needed to look good with the color of our master bedroom since our bedroom is open to our doorless bathroom.
The winning color ended up being "Smooth Stone" in Glidden DUO Paint + Primer!
I chose Glidden®’s DUO line of paint because I wanted a paint and primer in one. We had to patch a few holes when we removed our towel bar and toilet paper holder and in the past, when I would paint over patched areas, the areas would flash through the paint if I didn’t use a primer. Also, I liked that the paint was Low VOC (important when you’re working in a small, tight space) and scrubbable (perfect for a bathroom)!
I was a little nervous when I opened the can and saw how light the paint was.
I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the paint on the wall though!
The color is a bit of a chameleon. It can read gray or beige depending on the time of day. I've noticed that the color is a little cooler in the morning but it warms up in the afternoon/evening when the sun is setting over our house. It's a great gray and a perfect neutral!
Painting the room was a little difficult because of the tight space.
Tip: cover your toilet with plastic wrap so you don't get any paint on it when you're trying to shove your brush/roller behind it!
I'm not sure if you noticed but I painted the ceiling as well!
The room is so tiny (33" wide x 73" long) that leaving the ceiling unpainted meant there was going to be a hard transition from the walls to the ceiling. To me, it didn't make sense to have a break in the color or to leave the small ceiling strip unpainted so I went for it!
It may not look like we painted the room but I promise we did haha
Here are a few before and after photos to show the subtle color change:
