The Surprising Role of Colour (and Mood) in Your Bathroom


There are a few essential ingredients that go into the perfect bathroom, but not all of them are immediately obvious. One excellent example of this is colour. When you’re reinventing your bathroom, (or creating it from scratch), you’ll probably pick the bathroom furniture and accessories that blend well with each other and the room itself – and that makes perfect sense. But have you ever considered what effect the colour palette you choose may really have on the mood and atmosphere? In today’s blog post, we’ll discover the true role of colour in the bathroom. 

The mood-altering power of colour

It may not be hard science by any stretch of the imagination, but the basic colour palette has an associated psychological element that many of us ignore. Proven both anecdotally and traditionally, these colours have over time become associated with certain moods and feelings. Want specifics? We’re glad you asked…

1. Red is well known for creating a strong, positive energy in your bathroom. If you want to feel invigorated and raring to go after a whirlpool bath, red is a great choice. 

2. Blue is known as a good all-round choice for a bathroom, and in many respects something of a classic. Various shades of blue are available in a host of bathroom accessories, from aquamarine to sky blue.

3. Green is recommended for creating truly balanced, relaxing bathrooms. While it may not be a common choice for walls and bathroom furniture, you can add accents in green with little touches like plants and ornaments.Y

4. Yellow is a colour known for inspiring creativity and confidence. Whether you create a yellow atmosphere with paint, wallpaper, or bathroom furniture, is up to you – but it’ll certainly make you feel stronger!

Colour-matching your bathroom

It’s true that not all whirlpool baths (and other bathroom furniture, like basins) are available in a range of colours. In fact, classic white finishes are probably the most popular. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t create colourful highlights using the shades we mentioned above. There are plenty of ways to do just that, including the use of Chromotherapy LED underwater lighting. Many of these systems give you the option to choose the perfect lighting shade to suit your mood. In addition to lighting solutions, you can also find various colours of whirlpool bath panels – including wooden options and acrylic white. One other elegant way to bring colour to your bathroom is via bathroom furniture choices like vanity units and other storage options. And of course, you can always add a splash of paint or wallpaper to the walls, and bring lively greens through the introduction of plants and flowers too. The choice is all yours.
