Soothing Sanctuary Bathrooms

Your bathroom should be a haven of rest, relaxation and self-care. Too often, we ignore the bathroom in favour of other spaces in the home, yet that may just be the room we visit most often during the day. Whether you love a long, hot bath to unwind in after a tough day or just want your bathroom to feel a little more relaxing, we’ve got a few tips to help you create a soothing sanctuary bathroom at home.

Make It Soft

No one has ever looked at a rough, old towel and thought it was relaxing. Though we might think that a cheaper towel will get the job done, it can leave your skin feeling unhappy and your mind in a similar position. Invest in some Egyptian cotton towels to get that premium hotel feeling right in your own home. Added to this, why not buy a soft bathrobe and slipper set that you can wear exclusively in your own bathroom? This will help you cultivate not only a feeling of luxury, but one of relaxation and recuperation. The things you wear can help you relax just as much as the things you do.

Colour Is Everything

If you want to completely overhaul the way your bathroom looks, choosing soothing and calming colours can be a great way to create a sanctuary there. Pastel shades and softer tones not only help keep the light in during the day, but can also help soothe in the evening, especially against candlelight. Traditional bathroom colours like shades of blue, green and even purple can help you relax- psychological studies have even shown that the colour blue can make people feel secure and calm.

Lighting

Harsh, unflattering and white lighting can make a room feel clinical and uncomfortable, so it’s important to select the right kind of lights for your bathroom to make it feel like a haven of rest. For a small change, pick light bulbs with a more yellow light hue to them. You can build up your candle collection and light them during your self-care sessions – not only do they make the room feel warmer, but they give off a variety of calming scents as well. Even in a smaller bathroom, utilise the natural light that comes in through the window as this can also create a sense of calm without you having to change a thing.
