It's the place where you can escape and tune out the world for a few blissful minutes—or an hour, if you're lucky—in the tub or shower. Plus, a fresh coat of paint is an easy way to refresh this important space without sinking a lot of money into renovations. We asked Kathryn Emery, a home improvement expert, and Meg Piercy, the founder and owner of MegMade, to share their top recommendations.

"Moisture is the culprit when you see peeling paint in the bathroom, so don't skimp on quality," says Emery.

"Neutral tones don't recast light in a way that will alter your complexion in a mirror, so take that into consideration when choosing a bathroom paint color," explains Emery. "Lighter colors reflect light easily, which gives the room a bigger appearance," says Piercy.

Unsurprisingly, a classic white paint is the perfect choice when it comes to creating the illusion of a bigger bathroom. "Many different brands (Behr, Dunn Edwards, and Benjamin Moore) have this same color swatch, which speaks to how popular it is.

It has a hint of smoke that gives it texture so the color doesn't appear dull or flat on the walls."

"But it's neutral enough to create the illusion of light and not make the bathroom feel smaller."

Benjamin Moore makes a color called Shaker Beige that they launched in 1976, and clearly it's a crowd-pleaser given its longevity."
