Updating your home, whether it’s a little touch-up or full remodel, can be an exciting experience that makes your home more enjoyable to live in. Not only does it provide you with the opportunity to step back and really think about how you want your home to express those things you love, but it is also a chance to learn something new. One of the most unique routes to creating a space in your home that has purpose in its design is to incorporate culture. Here we will consider incorporating a very tranquil and Zen culture to your home through the Japanese art of bathing. The bathroom is a space in the home that is used daily and the Japanese have redefined this room’s purpose over time from an efficiency-based space to an area where peace and tranquility reign.
When decorating a traditional bathroom both soft tones and bold colours can work well. Strong tones of browns, maroons and greens give a nice warmth to the room, but be sure the bathroom is well lit, maybe with a lavish chandelier. With the right colours, antique gold can look better than chrome. Go for curtains, never blinds. If going for a vanity unit rather than a traditional basin and pedestal, choose an oak or cherry finish; or the white Cynk vanity unit is a good look with traditional baths and toilets.
