- Aquatic shades of blue, such as turquoise and seafoam
- Dark and medium greens, such as hunter green (which is similar to Cushing Green above)
- Sunny, cheerful yellow hues

According to interior design experts, some of the most popular bathroom colours or 2020 will include champagne, soft yellow, and pumpkin. Similar options include terracotta, clay, gold, and straw, like Benjamin Moore’s Golden Straw paint colour.
