What does your bathroom look like?
When it comes to home decor, people typically think of making their living rooms the center of attention. They invest in comfy and soft couches, elegant and modern coffee tables, beautiful books that look wonderful on that new coffee table they got, curtains to control the light and the ambient, and so many other things.
One thing many people forget is their bathroom. I know, you don’t stay in your bathroom as much as you typically lounge around in your living room, but it’s still a very important area in your home.
For me, my bathroom is my relaxing oasis because it is the place where I do my skincare, put on makeup, and do my hair, so I want to feel energized in the morning, but serene at night.
When I designed my dream bathroom, I made sure that it was everything I wanted it to be: stylish, calm, vibrant, beautiful, modern, and simply fabulous. At first, I was tempted to make it orange, but I discovered that this vibrant shade is more likely to make you hungry, and I didn’t want to feel my stomach growling each time I wanted to brush my teeth.
So I decided to make it white and turquoise, and let me tell you that I feel very happy every morning and every night. There’s something about the way the light reflects in my bathroom, and I can’t get enough of it.
If you’re like me and you want to turn your bathroom into a relaxing oasis, the simplest way to do that is by choosing a color that will make you feel like you’re at a fancy SPA. Are you ready to transform your lavatory? Let’s begin!
1. Sky blue
There’s something soothing about looking at the sea, the ocean, or the sky. Some people say that it’s almost impossible to feel sad when you see how beautiful nature is, so if you want to bring the outside feelings in, you need some blue accents in your life.
If you want to feel relaxed and happy every time you enter your bathroom, I think painting your walls in a beautiful sky-blue shade will do wonders for your mind. And if you have white furniture, get ready to be impressed, because everything will look like it’s straight out of a fairytale!
I think that the combination of white and blue is so dreamy, elegant, and charming—definitely one of my favorites!
2. Dusty jade
Do you like spending time in nature? I don’t know about you, but each time I see something green, I immediately think of something pretty and relaxing. If you want to feel like you’re in a SPA, ready to get the most amazing treatment ever, but you don’t have the budget for it, I can teach you how to do that at home!
First things first, you have to start off by painting your bathroom a light shade of green. Then, you can add a few scented candles to your vanity to make the room smell nice, run a bubble bath or a steamy shower, and if you’re feeling extra fancy, you can add a piece of eucalyptus to your shower to make everything seem fresh. Not only is this a great physical feature for your bathroom, but it’s also going to do wonders for your health.
PS: This color looks amazing paired with some white and silver accents! Try out this combination because you’re not going to be disappointed!
3. Light gray
Not many people are fans of light gray bathrooms, but they look absolutely divine, especially if you know what to pair them with. For instance, if you want your bathroom to look stylish and modern but also very soothing, you should combine gray with some wood or earthy tones for a more natural look, but don’t forget to add a few taupe accents to make everything look sophisticated and fabulous.
If you like marble, it pairs wonderfully with the chromatic scheme previously mentioned. We know that it’s not that budget-friendly, but there are tons of options on Amazon on how you can DIY the look, such as wallpaper that gives off the impression you have real marble in your bathroom.
The contrast will be unbelievable, and if you make a clay detox face mask and light a scented candle, your bathroom will be your go-to place each time you need a couple of minutes just for yourself.
4. Tan and eggshell white tones
I don’t know what your thoughts are when it comes to chromatic palettes (make sure you leave a comment down below and tell me), but for me, neutral-painted bathrooms are always a good idea. They’re just so stylish, relaxing, and pretty that each time I see one, I can’t help but admire it for a couple of seconds.
I know that I might sound a bit weird saying that I admire bathrooms, but really, they’re the place I start my morning routine and end my night routine, so they’re very important.
However, let’s go back to this color palette because I’m already rambling: Off-white shades that are paired with wood and tan hues create a stunning contrast that is cozy and rustic but very modern, like a Parisian-chic aesthetic, which you probably like very much. If you have no idea how to paint your bathroom, you won’t go wrong with a tan shade.
5. Navy blue
I know that is probably hard to believe, but if you know the proper way to combine navy blue with powder white and golden accents, you’ll have the most gorgeous bathroom ever! I’m speaking elegance, sophistication, relaxation, and everything else you want. Trust me, this is one of the best combinations ever, and it gives off the feeling that you’re in the bathroom of a very fancy hotel.
So how can you achieve this amazing look for less? Well, things are pretty simple, and all you have to do is accessorize. You can purchase some deep blue backsplash that will turn your bathroom into a relaxing oasis thanks to its soothing and versatile properties.
Then, add a light fixture that has gold accents, and if your furniture is white, then you’re good to go. If you’re looking for a way to spice up your whole bathroom, you can add a small vase of white flowers to your vanity. Not only will it look very pretty, but it will also create a very natural vibe, an image that seems like it’s straight out of a magazine.
Never underestimate the power of a white bathroom! Some people say that a white room might give off the feeling of a hospital room, but that’s not true, especially if you know what hue to use.
A clean white is just amazing for creating a chic and luxurious bathroom that looks relaxing and cozy but is also very stylish at the same time. You can play around with other colors and textures to give it more life, such as beige baskets that are made of straw or golden light fixtures that will create a very stylish and modern look.
This style is also great if you love the Parisian chic aesthetic. You can add some golden little statuettes to make something pretty and shiny, or you can add some colorful flowers to make everything look charming and more vibrant.
