If you’re feeling bogged down, stressed, or if you find it hard to wind down at the end of the day, getting into a better state of mind may be as easy as brushing up your bathroom with a new relaxing color pallet!
The human brain responds to different colors in different ways. Red, for example, has been known to create excitement. It’s also known to boost blood pressure, respiration rates, a sense of trust and hunger. No wonder so many companies use red in their logo! But while red might work for McDonald’s, it’s probably not a good color for a relaxing space like a bedroom or a bathroom.
If you are looking to create a space that helps relieve stress, experts suggest selecting neutrals for your cabinetry. Natural elements such as wood textures and taupes have been shown to boost creativity. As for your walls, experts have suggested going with cool blues to calm your mind, or green if you suffer from high blood pressure. Both cool blues and greens are known to help create a sense of calm and rejuvenation.
While changing up your bathroom won’t stop the emails from coming in or make your grocery list any shorter, having a calm, fresh, clean bathroom will certainly help set the tone for a productive day…and a restful night.
