People enjoy bringing natural elements into their homes. They might pull things directly from nature outside or they might just recreate the feeling of nature in their space. The bathroom is one of the best places to do this. The space is small, so it creates a big impact. It also creates a feeling of calm, which is ideal for a space that is often viewed as an escape. Shower doors and custom mirrors can all be designed to suit a natural theme in a bathroom. They key is to design natural elements that suit the rest of the decor. No matter what style you choose, you can incorporate natural elements into a bathroom space. There are a lot of creative ways to do this, so start by looking over your current decor, determining which changes you want to make and moving forward with your plans.
Natural wood is one of the easiest ways to bring a feeling of nature into a space. Wood is not the first choice for bathroom spaces because people often think of tile and metal in a bathroom space. The good news is wood blends nicely with both of these elements. Think of some of the best spas in the world. They incorporate wood, just as much as more traditional bathroom materials. Wood creates a feeling of softness and warmth in a space. You can bring wood into a bathroom through the vanity, shelving and even flooring.

Colors are another great way to bring the feeling of nature into a space. If you are unable to make big, expensive changes in a bathroom, consider using color to create a more natural environment. Choose paint colors that mimic what is found in nature. A blue sky, green grass, or even the soft gray of river rock are wonderful colors for a bathroom and pair nicely with existing materials, whether they are wood, metal or tile.
Shapes are another important consideration when creating a space that feels natural. Most people think of oval sinks and square tile, but these materials come in a variety of shapes. The more organic the shape, the more natural a space is going to feel. You might opt for a sink that is shaped like a leaf or choose a few accents tiles that have a soft, round shape. Even bathroom rugs can mimic natural, organic shapes. No matter what you do, look for shapes that appear in natural.
Finally, consider natural textures. Use materials that are made from natural materials like bamboo towels. You can also bring accent pieces and accessories in that feel organic and natural. Adding plants to a bathroom is a great way to bring nature indoors. Tropical plants love bathrooms because they get to live in a warm, humid environment. They also provide more oxygen to the space and create a healthier environment for everyone using the bathroom. Making a space feel natural and incorporating things from nature is easy and fun, as long as you make the right choices.
