When it comes to making sure that you can appreciate all of the rooms in a house, there is a lot that you will want to consider. Of course, you will want to make sure that the furniture layout is convenient and that you have all of the décor that you can put on your walls, but to really tie the appearance of a room together, you are going to want to make sure that the color of the wall matches the color of the room you want. One good example of this is when you are creating a bathroom oasis. The difference between your standard bathroom and a bathroom oasis is that an oasis is designed to be a room that you can relax in more, such as while you are taking a hot bath. Plain, off-white walls are generally not going to be what people want for an “oasis” setting. When you are thinking about what you want to do when creating a bathroom oasis, the color of the walls is going to play a large role in things.
Choosing the Color for Your Bathroom
A lot of people do not realize that the color of the walls can actually make a pretty big impact on how you perceive a room. Just about everyone knows the trick of using lighter paints to make a room seem larger and using darker paints to make a room seem smaller. This falls into the same category. If you are looking to create your own personal oasis, you are generally going to want to try and pick out colors and hues that have a more relaxing feeling to them. This means that you will want to stray away from neon colors or anything that is too vivid. Most people can agree that neutral and earthy colors (browns, beiges, greys, and shades of crème) are some of the more relaxing colors out there. Other people might find a stark contrast between a colorful house and a dark bathroom to be somewhat inviting or relaxing. For the most part, the exact color you go with will depend on your own personal preferences as well as the color of the bathroom fixtures. After all, you will want to make sure the fixtures match the walls.
If you want to add a splash of color to your bathroom without creating too sharp of a contrast in color, you can consider going with a lighter, milder hue of a color that you like. Blue is considered to be easy on the eyes and the lighter shades can give off the impression that your bathroom is larger and more spacious than it really is. If you are not a fan of blues, lighter greens can also provide a similar effect. What makes these colors even better for your bathroom oasis is that they are often associated with oases, especially in addition with beige or tan countertops and flooring that most bathrooms have.
What About Bathroom Fixtures?
While it is going to be the color of the walls that have the most impact on creating your own bathroom oasis, you will still want to make sure that any accessories or fixtures you add fit in with the colors you have chosen. For blues, you may want to consider light tans, beige, and off-white crème colors for your fixtures. For light green walls, you can consider whites, blacks, browns, and similar colors for shelves and other furniture. Both of these combinations can contrast well while still providing a relaxing atmosphere for you to rest and bathe in.
