Well, both bathrooms and kitchens have become very important places in the family life in recent decades. They deserve to be, with the intimacies morning and night in the bathroom and the kitchen becoming a social meeting place beside the importance of healthy cooking. A cozy bathroom with the essential facilities like the shower and storage along with the washing promotes peace and security. Good bathrooms hygienically arranged and pleasantly decorated do promote productivity and good cheer.
Don’t we rush to the bathroom early in the morning and get there again at bedtime each day? The fragrant bath salts do help to get rid of worries as you contemplate sleep and sweet dreams after a challenging day amidst the work drama. No wonder that bathrooms are expected to be stress relieving and pretty. The aesthetics of the bathroom does allow for some adjustments to get the best out of the facility. Color blends and contrasts would make the difference along with the accessories, fixtures and fittings, curtains and installations.
Are the bathroom fittings matching well, maybe more installations are needed
Study the details carefully, because that is how beauty is created. Even tiny accessories have big roles to play in the overall impression. Contrasting colors and materials create a dramatic impact. What colors are the countertops and backsplashes? Does the entire bathroom have a single color scheme with several shades? It is certainly not difficult to make the little things like the toothbrush and soap holders and tissue dispensers to contrast in color with the dominating hues for effect. If the bathroom is green, the accessories could be yellow or white.
If you decide upon gentle shades, they will not get in the way of the serene environment that is necessary for relaxation. Sometimes, we do like harsh and bright colors during festival occasions, but certainly not in bathrooms! Accessories should come in warm and gentle shades and such items would be available at the local home store in many colors and patterns. Have fun with the purchases.
An ornate shower curtain?
Surrounding the shower could be the most colorful curtain designs. Shop online for a great variety. Decide carefully about the matching or contrasting elements. What about the base color or design across the bathroom? Certainly, avoid scenes of violent comic characters or war scenes and opt instead for animals and nature, maybe watercolor paintings by children?
Which will serve as the focus?
An intense focal point attracts attention, arouses feelings and reflects character and mood. Consider colors, designs, and contrasts to express ideas accordingly. Will it be a story of whites and grays or yellows and blacks? The background wall could be dark brown and the white tub in the center on the floor then creates a powerful effect. Make sure that the accessories contrast too, in blues perhaps.
Install the cabinets in dissimilar colors
Some other options too would help create that dramatic ambiance. The colors of the cabinets could contrast with the focal wall and the other walls. What about the light shades, like lavender and pastel aqua? A deep blue-green and watermelon red are also bright shades that create an impression. The dark cabinets with marble white tops stand out in sharp contrast. A vase of artificial pink flowers creates the right spirit of ‘never say die.’
Gentle shades create an aura of a framework for the entire bathroom and promote closeness and a positive halo. Light walls enlarge the ambiance too and create space.
Now for the icing on the cake
If you have observed bathrooms in plush hotels and lavish residences, flowers and greenery, real or otherwise, often play an exotic role. Plants are supposed to purify the air and need to be taken care of. The corners could install potted plants. The vanity and the windows could be arranged with flowers. Vases come in pretty materials, shapes, and colors. Glass vases are particularly attractive. Colors could match the gentle shades across the walls and accessories.
Spend some time in deciding on matching and blending colors. Create an oasis according to personal preferences with an eternal appeal. Let it be tranquil and positive in impact. Don’t forget the fun factor besides installing all the essential facilities to appeal to all ages. Green in policy, perhaps green could be one of the colors included too.
