Great self-care within the home starts with spaces that induce a feeling of stress-free serenity. Many overlook the bathroom as a room to cultivate that type of experience, but with the right design and accessories, it can feel more like a spa than a restroom.
One of the goals of an upgraded, blissful bathroom is to create a clean and relaxing design aesthetic. White walls bring about a sense of purity and cleanliness. Gold accents help create a feeling of subtle luxury, and flowing curtains give the bathroom a light, airy feel, which has a soothing effect on the nerves.
“Neutral tones with a restrained use of soft color, and bringing nature inside with a potted tree or plant are both ways to introduce calmness and serenity,” said Sonya Randall of Best Kind Design in Cambridge, Massachusetts. “Light is very powerful too,” she said. “Our body is wired to be alert under bright light, but using warm, layered light such as focused task lighting, sconces, candles, or even a fireplace, can help transition us out of being highly alert and into a state of relaxation.”
Ms. Randall also suggests using natural materials like stone and wood that “can help ground us” and recommends “offsetting that with soft texture can add comfort and coziness.”
Regardless of your preferred materials or tones, the following products will make your bathroom your new favorite room in your home.
