In our information overload world, one often-overlooked place to get away from it all is your bathroom. It’s the place where you start your day or spend much-needed alone time.
A dark, dreary or otherwise uninspired bathroom space can put you in a funk that lasts for hours. A Feng Shui fail in such an important personal space as your bathroom can negatively affect your mood, to say the least.
If your bathroom doesn’t refresh your mood, perhaps you just need to, “energy up” its ambiance by transforming it into a private oasis with the five helpful suggestions below.
Warm It Up
An easy fix is to paint the walls in a relaxing shade. For years, harsh white has dominated bathrooms and fixtures, why not try warmer colors such as powder blue, soft pink, tangerine, mint, buttercream or warm grey? Take a walk around a paint store. What colors make you feel good?
Bold It Up
A large framed mirror or piece of bold artwork can add drama to the often-reserved bathroom arena. Use it as the focal point to harmonize colors, patterns and materials. It will create a calming, meditative effect for your downtime and breaks.
Green It Up
Plants add a peaceful, natural vibe to your bathroom. They even exhale oxygen during the daytime process of photosynthesis.
Try hanging ivy plants from the ceiling or place Eucalyptus, Cactus, and Aloe on windowsills or along bathtub edges to be admired when you take a long, rejuvenating bath.
Mood It Up
Scatter tiny luxuries for yourself such as beautiful handmade soaps, vibrant patterned towels, and collected seashells or other natural elements. Wicker baskets can hold essential oils, potpourri and other little treasures.
Class it Up with New Fixtures
Fixtures can corrode, stain and wear out after years of use, not to mention go out of style. Think about upgrading your rusting or fading sink and shower faucets to pewter, gunmetal, or copper. Consider replacing your aging toilet and vanity with today’s more inspired designs that you can easily find in home centers and plumbing supply stores.
