Any part of a home can contribute to its aesthetic appeal and the degree to which it does (or doesn’t) make its occupants feel comfortable throughout the day. This includes spaces that homeowners might not necessarily spend a lot of time in.
For example, you probably spend less time in your bathroom than you do in your kitchen, bedroom, or living room. Nevertheless, a well-designed bathroom can make your home a more comfortable place to live.
Thus, it’s worth learning about some basic bathroom interior design tips and ideas. If you want your bathroom to feel inviting and calming, consider the following:
1. Add Some Greenery
You might not have much space in your bathroom for too much decor. That said, there’s probably a spot in your bathroom where you can place some form of greenery. If you can’t find space for an actual plant, you could at least hang a picture of a gorgeous natural scene.
This is a good idea for very science-backed reasons. Researchers have discovered that spending even a couple of minutes looking at a piece of greenery or a natural scene can have a calming effect and a positive impact on someone’s mood. Apparently, this effect is consistent even when the plant “life” in a space is technically fake.
Again, you want your bathroom to be a comfortable space that promotes relaxation. It’s more likely to be if you leverage this basic psychological principle.
2. Make Health-Conscious Decisions
Making certain upgrades to your bathroom won’t just improve your mood and comfort. There are also certain upgrades you can make that can be beneficial to your health and wellness.
For example, you may consider installing a bidet in your toilet. Bidets have grown increasingly popular in many parts of the world because studies indicate they offer a wide range of health benefits. Bidets are also better for the environment than toilet paper, as using a bidet requires less consumption of resources than using toilet paper. That may be something that’s important to you in an age when we have all begun to recognize how everyone can play a part in living more sustainably.
3. Chandeliers (or Similar Lighting Fixtures)
The bathroom is not the space one thinks of first when considering where to install a fancy lighting fixture, such as a chandelier. However, interior design experts have begun to find that installing such fixtures in bathrooms is an easy way to make them feel comforting.
Quite simply, for obvious reasons, many of us naturally think of the bathroom as being one of the less clean spaces of our homes. Thus, we don’t necessarily think of the bathroom as a space that’s even supposed to be all that luxurious.
That doesn’t need to be the case. Your bathroom can actually feel quite elegant with some simple changes. One way to make a bathroom more luxurious is to install a lighting fixture that implies this is a space where one is meant to indulge in relaxation.
Of course, you should also always keep your own tastes and preferences in mind when designing your bathroom. However, if you’re having trouble deciding how to make the kind of upgrades that will genuinely make your bathroom a more appealing room in your home, these tips can help.
