Wouldn’t it be nice to make regular visits to the spa and enjoy lots of pampering and relaxation? Sadly, for most of us, this isn’t a viable option. So how about bringing some of the spa into your home? One of the best rooms in the house to make changes in is the bathroom. Having a spa-like bathroom that you can relax in and while away the hours is a great alternative. These ways are pretty affordable and can be done in practically any bathroom. So what are you waiting for? Bring the sparkle and luxury of a spa to your bathroom!
Consider All of Your Senses
When you go to a spa, the whole atmosphere is tranquil and relaxing. So it can be a little awkward if you are having a bath or a shower and all you can hear is the roadworks on your street. Having some white noise or music playing is a great way to drown out noise that you don’t want to hear. If the lighting in your bathroom isn’t ideal, then think about how you could change it. Installing a dimmer switch might be a good idea so you can create an ambiance. You could also just enjoy the light from candles perhaps. Think about all of your senses and your bathroom will be feeling much more luxurious in no time.
Think About Layout and Presentation
It is nice to have lovely products and soaps out on display, especially if you want to recreate the feel of a spa. Don’t just have them lined up or piled high on a shelf. Think about having them in some cute little containers or trays. Choosing a few different styles that work together, is a good way to create a luxury feel. You could add some shelving for towels and have them rolled, rather than folded. Then they can just be ready to grab as and when you need them. Some real, or even artificial flowers could be a good idea too. What spa doesn’t have any?
Upgrade Some of Your Bathroom Units
If you have a bit more to be able to spend, then upgrading some of your bathroom units is a good idea. Having a freestanding bath is a really luxurious touch. You could also think about getting a new shower curtain or screen. When you give yourself a barrier from the rest of the house (or room), it can feel more spa-like. After all, a spa has separate little spaces, and it is a place to switch off from everything else. Other things in a bathroom that work could be getting or updating your vanity unit. Bathroom vanities are a really luxurious touch from just having a stand alone sink. It is a great way to be able to display some of your soaps and lotions too, rather than shelving.
