1. Add Earthy Furniture Shades

Earthy shades are colours that draw inspiration from the outdoors. They are inviting, friendly and contemporary. These subtle tones are rooted in nature. And these subdued hues are soothing, warm and reassuring. Earthy furniture shades create a more intimate, calm and comfortable atmosphere in your bathroom.

Incorporating natural materials in your bathroom is one of the best summer bathroom ideas. The reason is because natural materials like wood, stone, etc. are timeless and eco-friendly. They create an inviting atmosphere. Quality natural materials like marble and travertine are authentic and have a unique personality.

During the past one year alone, you’ve possibly spent more time inside your home than you have in the last five years combined. So why not bring the outdoors in? After all, natural materials enable you to create a soothing space without much effort. Here are two bathroom accessories that bring the outside in.

Natural oak is classical, all-purpose wood. The Old England Oak Vanity Bathroom Suite  is aesthetically beautiful, easy to clean and durable.

4. Adding a Bit of Green

A green bathroom is the new infatuation. Years ago, people considered wall pastels to be appropriate only for children’s rooms or nurseries. But that’s changed now. This soft family of colours – especially shades of green – lends a soothing tint to your bathroom walls. Pastels are colours for all seasons, not just summer. The good news is people have rediscovered their use in recent times.

We are sure that the soft, relaxing shades of green can quickly change your mood for the better. A pop of pastel green can enliven even the dullest of bathrooms. You don’t need to limit pastel colours to the walls. Breathe new life into your bathroom by colouring shelves and cabinets with pastel colours.

Adding a bit of green is a great modern bathroom idea to create an eco-friendly space. Pick a simple plant and place it on the window. It’s the perfect way to introduce a bit of green into your bathroom. You could quickly turn your bathroom into a little tropical oasis by simply adding some potted plants. Opt for indoor plants such as Spider plants, Snake plants, Philodendron and Devil’s Ivy that grow easily.
