The bathroom; you head there first thing in the morning to get ready and prepare for the day that’s about to unfold, or maybe you let a hot shower soak into your muscles at the end of a tiring day to help you unwind. Typically, being one of the smallest rooms of the house, we spend more time there than we probably realize. As also a place to reflect, to finally have a quiet moment to yourself (hopefully you DO have it to yourself!), there isn’t a better place to create a sense of calm – a blissful bathroom you might say!
While a complete bathroom renovation may be a tall order, a bathroom refresh could be all you need to create blissful surroundings. But what makes it blissful? What type of surrounding would bring you joy? Is it a light, airy space, a dark moody atmosphere or pale tranquil hues? No matter the style, a blissful bathroom should establish a feeling of harmony and happiness! A simple change in paint colour can help achieve that.
Traditionally, light and pale colours could be considered blissful and with varying wisps of blue, green and pink undertones, these blissful beauties are sure to bring serenity:
Comfortable and familiar neutrals, or slightly darker tones of colour, can also create an equally blissful atmosphere!
The bathroom is probably one of the easiest paint projects to undertake yourself! An obvious first step might be to implement organization solutions, but after addressing storage and clearing floor and counter space, you’re left with the walls. Ideas of consistency and unity come to mind when establishing a blissful surround, so often the best approach is to create a palate off your existing tiles. Complementary colour undertones pulled from the tile colour can bring a unified and soft palate that indeed creates bliss!
The finishing factor of a blissful bathroom may lie in the product you decide to use for the walls. Typically, a shiner finish would have been warranted for bathroom walls years ago, but now, shiner finishes feel dated and sometimes even cheap. Benjamin Moore’s advancements in paint technology has bestowed a beautifully updated and durable matte bathroom product. The Aura Bath & Spa, only available in matte, remains washable and holds up to the moisture and humidity that is inevitable in bathroom territory.
While your bathroom can be utilized for getting ready and conversely also for moments of relaxation, finding your bathroom bliss can originate from differing colours, from calming hushed hues to clean tinted whites right through to cozy darker tones!
