Heading to the spa after a long tiring day at work is always an excellent idea. However, not everyone has the time or money to indulge in a spa treatment once in a while. So why not transform one of your home’s vital space into a sanctuary where you can unwind in pure bliss and solitude?
Tweaking certain features of your bathroom can go a long way in helping you achieve a spa-like environment in the comfort of your home. Here’s how you can improve your bathroom and have the ultimate spa experience:
Switch to Neutral Colors
The colors white, beige, gray, and pale blue are often associated with purity, comfort, balance, and tranquility. These colors offer a calming ambiance that can help ease the mind and induce creativity. Try to incorporate these colors into the interiors of your bathroom and use certain accents such as curtains, tiles, rugs, towels, and toiletry bottles. Remember to stay away from bold patterns and prints as they tend to contradict the relaxing vibe that you want to create.
Invest in Good Bathroom Fixtures
Choose fixtures that complement the overall design of your bathroom—from the showerhead, bathtub, faucet, sink, and toilet. In particular, showerhead and tub play an essential role in providing you with a pleasant home spa experience. Popular choices for showerheads include wall-mounted, handheld, and rain showerheads. Meanwhile, conventional options for bathtub styles include soaking, jetted, and whirlpool bathtubs. In Utah and other parts of the USA, several companies specialize in creating custom showerheads and bathtubs. You can consult them to find out which styles suit your needs.
Maximize Your Space
Maximize your bathroom space by reducing clutter. Store toiletries and other products that you don’t use daily inside your sink cabinets. You can also try to emulate how spa establishments display and organize their toiletries. For instance, add a few baskets to store extra toiletries and towels, use acrylic canisters to store cotton pads and cotton swabs, or place a tray on vanity tops to display hand towels, soap, lotion, and other products. These items not only provide storage but contribute to your bathroom’s overall aesthetics as well.
Integrating a few houseplants and flowers into your bathroom instantly creates a more inviting atmosphere and adds a pop of color to your earth-toned room. However, not all plants can grow indoors, so make sure to consider your bathroom’s sunlight, humidity, and temperature levels in choosing an indoor plant. You can also opt for artificial plants if you are allergic to plants.
Replace Old Towels and Rugs
There’s no better way to cap off a good bath than with fluffy towels to wrap around your body and comfy rugs to rest your feet on. Towels and mats are also essential pieces that help achieve a premium spa-like feel in your bathroom, so don’t be afraid to indulge in quality ones. Ditch your old towels and rugs for fresh new ones. Go for oversized cotton towels and mats as these are softer and more absorbent. Don’t forget to include a set of stylish hand towels to complete that luxe spa-like feel.
Splurge on Scents and Candles
Never underestimate the power of aromatherapy in boosting relaxation and reducing stress. Set the overall spa-like mood of your bathroom by adding reed diffusers, essential oils, and scented candles. Common signature spa scents include combinations of lavender and blue cedar, rosemary and eucalyptus, and jasmine, green tea, and lemon flower. Toss in a few flower petals to your tub for a more luxurious touch.
The next time you require a spa treatment, look no further than your own home. Follow these tips and recreate your ideal spa experience in your home. After all, bathroom upgrades are great investments that can last a long time.
