Colours have meaning. They create an impact on our minds and the way we feel both consciously, and subconsciously. So choosing a colour for your Vancouver bathroom renovation is an important first step to consider before choosing certain installments, fixtures and accessories. There is a helpful process to going about this, and research you can do on the meanings of colours and how they can impact your mood in certain rooms of your home.
Blue emits qualities of trust, serenity and peace. There is a certain ‘clean’ and ‘fresh’ quality about blue that makes it a popular colour for bathrooms. A light and bright blue will open up a small bathroom and help reflect light.
Hues of green feel natural, organic and refreshing. They can make you feel more connected to nature and like your bathroom is an environmentally friendly space full of Earth’s grounding energy.
Whites & Neutrals
Whites and neutrals are safe to use for all bathrooms, and can be easily combined with pops of colour. White will brighten up a space, reflect light and make it look larger than it is while other light and dark neutrals will create a balanced and contemporary effect.
Yellows emit freshness, happiness, positivity and joy. A light pastel yellow will add more light and relaxation, while a more vibrant and rich yellow will add energy.
Purple represents royalty, wisdom, extravagance and magic. Light lilac hues are rarely seen in nature, therefore seen as having a sacred meaning. It is a delicate colour that can bring a relaxing and beautifully satisfying energy to a room.
Most importantly while considering colour meanings, you should seek out inspiration from online mood boards on Pinterest and Tumblr, collect paint swatches and samples from home improvement stores and get second opinions on your finds.
