Whether you live in the big city or a house in the country, you can always benefit from a little relaxation. By creating a harmonious atmosphere in your bathroom, you will soon find inner peace; and by adding a few essentials to your decor, you can easily create a spa atmosphere.
The contrast between shape, color and material give a room character, so keep your bathroom as uniform as possible. Create peace for all of your senses by thinking sober and unadorned. Invest in large tiles in a dark gray or metallic iridescent tone to decorate your floors and walls with. Treat yourself by installing a floor pump for colder days. Larger plates provide a smoother appearance, but use smaller mosaic materials for compact areas such as behind the washbasin. Use natural materials, such as wood, to contrast with the metallic tones.
Stick to a large bathroom window of frosted glass or insert a pair of round windows with a mosaic frame. Hang up a couple of bamboo light blinds over your windows for an exotic feel. Your day begins and ends in your bathroom, so adjustable lighting is something to prioritize. Make sure you get lighting that’s bright, yet easy to damp down. Treat yourself to a pair of spotlights to bring in the suns morning rays.
Add more luxury by investing in a steamer or a steam bath. Dark materials and accent colors add an exotic and relaxed feeling in your bathroom. Stick to a consistent style and use matching furniture. A minimalist and clean bathroom is often perfect for an Asian-influenced style, so stick to open space and decorate simply with the essentials.
Make your own scented candles and give them some color. Place them on the sides of the tub, sink, window frames and shelves. Roll up some bath towels and place them in baskets of bamboo; and hang up a couple of dressing gowns near the shower. Invest in a large bathroom mirror with a gold frame and showcase your collection of scented soaps and aromatic/essential oils in glass bottles. Add glass vases with lily flowers and hang up bamboo plants to make the environment feel more natural. Top everything off ith an ornamental sculpture of Buddha.
