Our last post discussed how to create a zen bedroom. Today we will cover another room in your home. Your bathroom.

Your bathroom in your home should be peaceful and serene. This is key to create a zen bathroom. This is one room you should be able to escape to in your home and feel at peace and 100% relaxation.

There are several ways to ensure your bathroom has a zen feel to it. We will provide a few tips on how to create a zen bathroom you will love:

CLEAR OUT CLUTTER

There is sometimes a tendency to “over design” a room. You should not do this in your bathroom if your intent is to create a zen atmosphere.

Hang just one picture on the wall since another wall will have a mirror on it. The mirror plus one piece of artwork is enough for a zen appearance. You want the artwork to be the focal point of the room perhaps displayed across from the toilet in the bathroom.

You should leave the vanity clear of décor and leave any additional furniture or wide items out of the room.

ONE WITH NATURE

If this is part of a bathroom remodel, we recommend the bathtub be place right underneath a large window. This will let you open the window and be one with nature as you relax in the warm bathtub. There is nothing more zen than a warm bath in a serene bathroom in your home.

Include one small plant somewhere in the décor. This could be a tall plant on the floor next to the vanity or a small bamboo plant or table plant for a shelf.

LIGHT TONES

Paint the walls in a very light and soothing tone. You should also decorate with white towels and tan or brown accessories. A zen bathroom will not feature bold accents or décor but rather subdued tones and colors such as sand or taupe.

FLOW

There should be an open flow to the bathroom. You want wide open paths for walking or caring for your personal needs in the room. You should feel very free in this space, not claustrophobic.
