Choose the right Colors For your Bathroom or Perish In Gloom!
When considering the design plan of new homes and apartments, most modern day engineers tend to allow much more space in the bathroom than before. In reality people tend to spend much more time in bathrooms these days. No longer is it just a place to brush teeth, bathe and use the toilet, in fact now bathrooms are being designed as refuges from our busy lives. Thus color choices for the bathroom have become even more significant. However the concern of how to choose from among the 10 million colors available always seems to stupefy a homeowner? As with color in any room, bathroom color should be based on the user’s personal taste and emotional needs. Before selecting a color scheme for the bathroom, one may want to consider the following:
A warm color palette typically is invigorating, while a cool one is calming. It is important to note that analogous colors or neighbors on the color wheel tend to produce serenity, while complementary colors (which are across the wheel) tend to generate confusion. On the other hand, high-contrast color schemes, for example black and white, lends to a more formal look in the bath. On the other hand low-contrast combos, such as beige and shutter green, will create a more casual space. It is important that a homeowner selects bathroom paint color based on personal preference so as to allow for a feeling of relaxation and revitalization.
The best advice for color selection is to keep a color wheel handy in order to consult, before choosing colors for the bathroom. The fashion in bathroom colors is to create harmonious color palettes, using the principles of color and light therapy, to help you heal and live life at the fullest. There are showers with fiber-optic lights in several colors that can be lit selectively according to the feel you want at the moment. Mood lighting in the bathroom and light fixtures that can dim down at night for a relaxing mood but can be very bright when you want them to be can help you have the best bath experience.
When selecting colors do remember that white with beige tends to look dirtier than white with black. Lilac with blue looks bluer than lilac with white. In order to balance rectangular or square tiles and countertops, a home owner should consider adding plants and flowers to your bath to create asymmetrical and natural beauty. This also adds to the experience of allowing a refreshing accent color to your bath. Tiles on walls and for flooring can also add beautiful colors to your bath.
