Colors For Your Guest Bathroom
Posted by Sam Sundeleaf on Wednesday, February 03, 2010
Many of us spend hours laboring over paint color choices for our family rooms or kitchens. However, the most visited room in any home is the guest bathroom. Homeowners should strive to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere in this small room.
Paint choices are endless, but nature can inspire us when looking for colors. Consider a walk outside your home and notice the many hues of color. The deep greens, browns and golds associated with winter can create a beautiful bathroom setting. The darkened leaves, stones and pebbles or even a sunset should bring countless color possibilities to mind. Bring these colors to the attention of the Apogee professionals and they might suggest colors like “straw,” “buttercup” or “olive.”
Homeowners should consider several things when choosing from the green, brown or other “natural” color families. Skylights or windows give an outside source of light, which would allow for darker paint color choices. Rooms having no additional outside light source look more open with a lighter wall color. Guests do not want to feel “closed in” from the deep forest green or chocolate brown paint on your walls.
So, as you discuss your bathroom color choices with Apogee Painting, look closely at those colors with names taken from nature like “moss,” “avocado,” or “eucalyptus.” Highlight your newly painted rooms with sprigs of greenery, plants and pebbles. You will be surprised at the calming effect these color choices will have on you and your guests.
