Bringing fresh new features and colours into your home before summer arrives is a sure fire way to make the most of this time of year. Allowing natural light to illuminate every corner of your home lends an enjoyable and refreshing atmosphere to each room, and by incorporating some bright and cheery solutions to key areas in your household you can be sure to feel the benefit of these simple changes.
Waking in the morning to spend a little time preparing for what lies ahead in a bright, refreshing and vibrant bathroom is sure to give any homeowner a great start to their day. Whether you prefer to enjoy a quick shower to alert the senses or indulge in a luxurious bath to relax the mind before a long day, doing so in a room that really incorporates that fresh feeling that summer brings adds so much more to the experience, and in this quick guide we’ll take a look at a few simple ways to capture this feeling.
It’s fair to say that certain colours and tones capture that ‘summery’ feeling more than others; dark maroons and blacks are certainly attractive when added to a bathroom, but they evoke a more relaxed and ‘sleepy’ feeling as appose to our desired ‘refreshing’ atmosphere.
Light greens and blues are wonderful when applied to a bathroom, and when natural sunlight shines through onto these tones they really seem to radiate life and a connection to nature and the outdoors. Finding a way to create a bright, fresh colour scheme using these tones and colours is a fast track way to making your bathroom ready for summer; be sure to contrast your chosen colour scheme with the secondary colour you apply in other bathroom features and accessories such as mats, window blinds and decorative additions.
Now the colours are taken care of, we can focus on some clever extras you can add to your bathroom to ensure that summery feeling really shines through. There are plenty of scented candles available in fresh, ‘summery’ fragrances; freshly cut grass, pinewood and flower fragrances are easily recognisable and will likely resonate with you or any other users in the room.
Replacing old features in your bathroom with more ‘summer infused’ alternatives can continue to evoke that ‘summery’ feeling. Bamboo bathmats and blinds act as great, sturdy additions to the room and will certainly help bring the whole design and feel of the room together.
Finish by accessorising with some summer-infused toiletries; fruity washing products and washcloths and towels that match colour scheme would create the ideal look and complete the bathrooms fresh, summery design!
