Actually, there is help. It's called a serenity room, and these rooms are becoming very popular, especially now that the number of empty nesters is on the rise, and boomers have the house more or less to ourselves, at least until the 'boomerrangers' arrive. Here's the idea:
Keep your bathrooms bright and chirpy in the sense that your wall tiles and flooring should not be dark and somber. White is always elegant and can be enhanced with splashes of color in toweling, mirrors, rugs and shower accessories. Bathrooms should be a sanctuary for relaxation, and therefore should not be over cluttered with superfluous objects. Scented candles with soft music in the background is sure to take away the stresses of the day, as you soak your wary body in a luxurious foam bath.
I remember as a realtor going through homes on Monday morning realtors tour of new listings and in this one particular home the carpets were covered with a clear plastic sheet, supposedly to keep them clean, but when you walked on the plastic you could feel a layer of oil, like cooking oil, on your feet afterwards. I could not wait to get home and wash my feet.
A great way to get that perfect centerpiece is to have a plan. Think of the colors that should be incorporated, favorite characters, and accessories. Think about the theme of the house; will it be similar or unique? Having a plan is the best way to get what is wanted and keeping the cost down.
Once you have your serenity room, you'll need to establish rituals for its use. This shouldn't be another 'should' in your life, but a soothing habit, kind of like settling into the easy chair after work with your slippers, the newspaper, and a glass of Gewurtztraminer. In other words, another ritual that reinforces the way you escape from the demands of your day, only a bit different, and a bit novel. Be the first in your neighborhood.
