Creating the right kind of vibe for your master bathroom depends upon a number things. Naturally you’ll be thinking about what kind of shower and tub you want, as well as whether or not you want a single or dual vanity. However, when it comes to really establishing the feel of the space, there’s nothing more important than settling on the right color scheme.
While some people want a bathroom that’s light and airy, many others want a bathroom that provides a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere. For those in the latter camp, there’s no better color scheme to consider than brown. Because it’s more a neutral color, it creates a bathroom environment that’s thoroughly relaxing – something you can’t get with a brighter color scheme. What’s more is that since brown is so versatile a color, it can easily be complemented by other bits of décor and tile work.
