Bathrooms have evolved a long way throughout the years. Did you know that when indoor plumbing was arriving throughout the country, some people found it strange or even indecent to include a toilet inside the house? Now, we consider bathrooms to be so much more than necessary pit stops in a day. Bathrooms are luxurious places where you can unwind, find peace, and feel pampered.
From luxurious tubs to gorgeous tiles, fancy features, and more, the bathroom is really now an important part of your home that has the potential to make you feel at peace.

If you ever pay attention to the color schemes of day spas, you’ll realize they often use neutral colors. Neutral colors in a bathroom let your eye rest. You don’t feel as if you’re looking in every direction; you can just take in the space and feel at peace. The earthy colors feel relaxing, and if you want to add earthy elements to the bathroom — like wood or stone — the room feels even more like an oasis.
Blue is universally loved for its calming effects. It may guide you to think of the sea or the sky, and it often will allow you to let your mind drift and wander — perfect for when you’re soaking in a tub after a long, hard day. Blue is also very versatile — it goes with so many styles and colors, so you can make the room exactly as you want it.
Yellow is cheerful, conjuring images of sunshine and happiness. A bright yellow will energize the space, while a more muted yellow will calm the space down.
Can’t you just hear the seagulls, smell the salty air, and hear the rhythmic crash of the waves? Seafoam brings the ocean to mind, and instantly soothes. White is a good balance to bring to a bathroom with seafoam colors. Adding natural elements like plants make the space more soothing to look at. And glass reminds of watery images, like the ocean. If the ocean is your happy place, a bathroom that uses seafoam elements will quickly become the happiest place in your home.
If you have a sophisticated taste, gray delivers nicely. Soothing and relaxing while bringing in charisma, gray lets you retreat into a space that is cut off from the tiring cares of your day. When you emerge, you’re better prepared to handle whatever life is about to throw at you.
For a feminine and calming touch, lavender feels peaceful and clean. It works well in cottage-style interiors, and for the right person, it can be perfect.
