A Visual Display to Create a Pleasant Response
The use of color in your bathroom is a very personal decision. Colours not only arouse our senses and affect our moods; they also help create a particular ambiance in our bathrooms.
As humans, how we respond to an individual hue depends on our inherent nature; extroverts (people who are energized while being in the company of other people) tend to feel happy with bold bright colors, whereas introverted people prefer more subdued tones.
While these are two extremes of the same coin, balance in your bath will normally be achieved through a combination of the two colour psychological combinations.
Through using specific combinations of color, combined with a careful consideration of simple color schemes and the dominance of one preference with accents of the other is often the most effective solution to your lavatory decor decisions. Using these simple principles you too can learn how to choose whats right for your lavatory.
Limiting Your Palette to Retain Consistency
Try not to use more than one or two principal hues in your bathroom along with a contrasting or balancing tone. The best way to choose a background colour for your restroom is by testing a palette of different shades and tones against the colors and textures of the furniture and materials you plan on using in your restroom.
It is also important to remember to integrate the general color schemes of other rooms of your home into your plan so that there is consistency and agreement throughout your home.
Another important point is to take into consideration how the walls define the space in your washroom, whereas the colors, to a large degree, define the psychological mood of your lavatory.
Constructing Mood With Pigments
Through the use of coloured light, furnishing materials, and spatial proportions in our bathing area, we can create a lavatory that is welcoming, usable, and comfortable.
Think of your bathroom walls like background music: each tone is like a musical note that can create a pleasant-sounding harmony while others couldn’t create harmony if their life depended upon it.
The colour with which we surround ourselves with in our washroom will without doubt have a psychological effect on us, and so it is important to feel comfortable with our choices.
If you are still unsure when choosing your colors, a discussion with a professional consultant can help to steer you in the right direction when trying to select an appropriate theme for your bath.
Its all a Matter of Design Balance
As a final note on bathroom design, remember colours can be divided into three main psychological categories: those that stimulate and uplift, those that relax and calm, and those that provide harmony and a sense of balance.
So, having taken a number of things into consideration when decorating your lavatory, such as the size of the space, the amount of light, the function of the room (family or personal oasis), and the style and mood you wish to create, you finally, and most importantly, need to consider the needs of the people who use it and how the colours you choose will affect them when they use the facility.
