Why a modern bathroom is good for mind and soul

29 Jun

Many people view their bathroom as a place to simply use the toilet or wash themselves when, in reality, it's much more than that. 

Any room that we spend significant time in can play a major role in affecting our mental wellbeing. We owe it to ourselves to invest in making our bathroom as bright and spacious as possible, which can in turn inspire a positive state of mind. 

Ask yourself this question: Where is the first room you go to after waking up in the morning? 

Now ask yourself: Before turning the light off to go to sleep at night, in which room did you spend time getting ready for bed? 

The answer to both is, of course, the bathroom.

New home, misguided priorities:

When people move into a new home, they often have big plans for refurbishing their porch or hall immediately. 

These are areas that they will only really pass through, but never spend a sustained period of time in. However, because they are the parts of the house that visitors see first, homeowners earmark them for immediate refurbishment. 

Somehow the bathroom gets relegated to the bottom of the to-do list. This is quite remarkable when you consider how much time we spend in it. 

Instead of being so keen to spruce up an area that nobody spends much time in, it is only right to focus on modernising the rooms we spend all of our time in. 

Quite simply a crucial room:

From washing the sleep out of our eyes in the morning (as well as brushing our teeth etc), to showering at the end of the day and all of the toilet breaks in between, the bathroom is a massively important room in human life. 

Refusal to upgrade it is the homeowner's choice, but it's worth considering how much more revitalised you might feel in a bright, spacious and modern bathroom compared to a dimly-lit and, frankly depressing bathroom.
