Four Ways to Create the Perfect Relaxing Bathroom Atmosphere

It is perhaps the most undervalued room in the house. The importance of, and the relaxation found inside, the bathroom could be second to none in a modern family home. Taking a bath at the end of a long day of work – drink in hand – is one of life’s true pleasures.

That said, too many people do not know how to recreate the perfect relaxing bathroom atmosphere that is seen so often on television and in films. These four simple steps can help you to realise that dream.

Choose your colours wisely

The days of simply painting a bathroom white or aqua-blue are gone – avocado bathrooms were thankfully cast away decades ago. Colours should be chosen wisely to complement each other – furnishings should offset the wall colours, while towels and bath mats should also be chosen accordingly.

Soft blues, pinks and yellows are truly “in” when it comes to bathroom paint. Consulting with a quality and on-trend provider when renovating your bathroom should make the picture become a lot clearer as to how these colours can match your tub, sink and toilet.

Have a tub big enough for two

Once calming, relaxing colours have been chosen, it’s time to pick out your bathroom fittings. If you live with your significant other, an ideal fitting is a bath tub that is big enough for two, so that you can relax together at the end of busy or stressful days. When bathing alone, the tub will also be large enough for you to spread out, close your eyes and sooth away your troubles.

When looking for bathrooms Wolverhampton or across the midlands, seek out providers who can help you design and then fit the perfect suite for you and your partner to relax in.

Use gentle scents and smells

One major error that can be made when attempting to make your bathroom the relaxing environment you wish it to be is to use scents and incenses that are far too strong. While this may do a good job of eliminating any bad odours, it only serves to afront the nose when you spend a prolonged period of time in the room – such as when having a bath.

For this reason, it is better to eliminate bad smells by keeping the bathroom well ventilated and to flavour the room with gentle tones such as linen, tropical or crisp scents instead.

Finish with soft furnishings

The best-designed bathrooms provide almost all of the relaxation you desire – the final touches are for you to decide on using soft furnishings.

Bath mats that envelope your feet, towels that are fluffy, bath pillows that allow you to dose in the water and blinds that block out the harsh sunlight are all essential in order to create a serene environment. On top of this, you could consider including a chair or two in the bathroom, if there is space. This allows you and your loved one to spend time together, without both of you having to use the bath or shower.

Whichever way you choose to furnish your bathroom, make it personal and unique to you. This is always a guaranteed way of helping find peace and relaxation in any room of the house.
