Create A Bathroom Design That Cleanses Body, Soul and Mind

Many of us dream of a calm, meditative routine for life. But when do we have the time? With our increasingly busy lives, some days the only quiet time we get is in the bathroom. So why not make it a truly healing and rejuvenating experience. And all it takes is a splash of the right colour to fit your personality and the type of energy you need to feel your best. 

Whether your shower time consists of thinking up your next big idea, weighing up important decisions, or pure mindful bliss, enhance your experience through your environment. Colour is more than simply aesthetic. It communicates, heals and evokes emotion. The colours of our surroundings can go as far as to raise or lower our blood pressure, influence our appetite, and change our way of thinking. That’s why it’s so important to furnish our abode with colours and styles that speak to us. 

Discover what different colours can do for your mind, body and soul, and how you can bring this into your modern bathroom design.

Colour Psychology and Interior Design 

Camberwell Unit with Basin in Dusty Blue

Pastel Blue: A Wave of Tranquillity ๐ŸŒŠ

The calmness of a blue summer sky. The peace of a blue, gentle ocean. The blooming of bluebells in summer. 

The colour blue signifies some of the most beautiful elements of nature and brings with it a sense of calm, peace and serenity. It stands for everything that is constant and unchanging. 

Many people associate the colour blue with intelligence, confidence and dependability. So, if you want your mindful bathroom design to inspire you, strengthen your will and broaden your mind, then blue could be the colour for you. Lighter, pastel blues provide a further layer of soothing, calm and balanced energy.

Camberwell Unit with Basin in Earthy Green

Green: Naturally Therapeutic ๐ŸŒฟ

Continuing with the earthly theme, incorporating the colour green into your bathroom design brings the kick of dopamine we get from nature inside the home. Symbolising harmony, tranquillity and peace, green revives the mind by promoting growth, renewal and hopefulness. As with thriving forestry and stunning grassy plains, the colour green is therapeutic and relieves anxiety, rejuvenating our mind, body and soul.  

Green in regarded the most restful and relaxing colour for the human eye. If you’re someone who likes your ‘you time’ to embrace relaxation, healing, and positive energy, add a bit of green to your bathroom colour scheme.

Dalston Unit with Basin in Matt Pink

Salmon: Energise Your Mind ๐Ÿง 

Your quiet time is sacred. It sets you up for the day ahead, restores your energy and stimulates your mind. If you’re looking for an environment that gets you energised and stimulated, incorporate pink into your bathroom design to activate your mind. 

Shades of pink, such as salmon, increase your heartbeat, encouraging action, confidence and excitement. While its intensity makes salmon a very eye-catching colour, it’s best used in small doses to stop your environment becoming overwhelming.

Shoreditch Unit with Basin in Matt Blue

Deep Blue: Let the Creativity Flow ๐ŸŽจ

As seen before, the colour blue holds close association with the ocean and the sky, making it a spiritually soothing colour. Deeper shades of blue can add another layer of energy to your environment. 

The serenity, orderliness and tranquillity that comes with the colour blue helps to lower blood pressure and relax the body. Darker shades of blue add stimulation for the mind by promoting problem solving, decision making and creativity. So, if you use your relaxing time to work through problems or think up your next big idea, this could be the modern colourful bathroom design for you.

Black: Sophisticated Harmony ๐Ÿ–ค

Believe it or not, black isn’t as negative a colour as we might think. In Feng Shui, black can harmonise your home, evoking power, mystery and calm. It is associated with a sophisticated lifestyle, boosting our mood and confidence when present in our environment. 

Black provides a protective and comforting energy to our surroundings. It is strong, contained and mysterious. With all its positive connotations, introducing black into your modern bathroom design produces a space where you can calm the body, enlighten the mind and give confidence to your soul.
