Zen Bathroom Basics

By Denise Turner, ASID, CID, CMG


The bathroom should be a place where you love to spend time—an indulgent oasis that purifies and rejuvenates your body while washing away the stresses of the outside world.

Through ancient teachings, the design world has learned to achieve holistic benefits by incorporating natural elements—such as color, light, essences, and the traditional five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water—into the home.  When the elements in your bathroom are balanced, you'll have a beautiful, inviting room that affords you the serene atmosphere you desire.

The Zen Bathroom

The Zen bathroom is defined by clean lines combined with essences and organic textures and colors. Earth tones such as greens, browns, beiges, and blues will introduce natural beauty to your space.

All of the bathroom's objects and elements should be thoughtfully placed to achieve a sense of harmony. Keeping your design simple but lovely will improve the room's flow and eliminate clutter—both important to support your mind, body, spirit, and physical well-being.
