We’re in the color year, and this month we’re celebrating yellow: a color full of benefits for our life. In this case, we’ll be talking about yellow paint applied on the bathroom, one of the most versatile spaces in your home when it comes to renovating. Yellow is glowing, pleasant, and cheering. According to color psychology, it lifts your mood and promotes creativity. For that reason, it’s a good idea to apply it in the bathroom. It will give your routine a touch of happiness and motivation from the moment you wake up in the morning and take a shower until you get back home at night and brush your teeth or refresh yourself before going to bed.
In our previous blog, we advised you to use yellow wisely, as it can cause mental fatigue if used in excess. Here you will find a few ideas to take advantage of the color’s potential in a simple, and subtle way. The greatest advantage of applying yellow in the bathroom is the warmth effect it produces. It belongs to the warm color range, so it generates a sensation of high temperature, which is good for any season. Yellow is ideal for small rooms with little natural light (two common features of bathrooms) as it gives the feeling of a larger visual space and enhances brightness, as long as it is properly used. Additionally, yellow conveys a sensation of freshness – a desirable feature in this kind of spaces.
The best thing about this color is that it looks great anywhere. Whether painted on the walls, on tiles, or on curtains, it will give your home ─ and in this case your bathroom ─ a fresh and positive atmosphere. If you decide to paint the walls, it’s advisable to receive guidance and advice from an expert like JMR Home Services, since a poor selection could screw up your entire bathroom. Choosing the right yellow tonality for your bathroom depends on several factors, such as lighting, room size, and decor elements displayed. In small spaces where visual space is a must, soft light yellow tonalities like butter, vanilla, or cream help to make the atmosphere brighter. On the other hand, darker tonalities like mustard or wheat can give a unique and modern touch, especially if the decoration includes some gray. Nevertheless, an expert’s opinion will help you make the right choice.
Here are some ideas to decorate your bathroom:
Some yellow floor tiles or any other yellow touch will work just fine; it’s not necessary to use yellow paint to obtain the desired effect. You can have decor details with a bit of yellow like yellow curtains, yellow-painted wardrobes, yellow accessories like toothbrush holders, soap dispensers, towels, carpets, mirror frames, or solid finishings like wall coverings, combined with other colors, will make your bathroom look great.
