We all know how hard it can be to budget for a much-needed day at the spa. But why pay expensive trips to the spa salons when you can enjoy a spa-like experience in the comfort of your home? Read on to learn about seven simple tricks you can use to turn your bathroom into a relaxing spa oasis you can enjoy anytime.
“Turn your bathroom into a
blissful sanctuary you’ll enjoy
spending time in.”
Declutter your bathroom to get some space
If you go to any spa salon, you’ll notice that none of them is cluttered and messy. That’s because clutter means disorder, chaos, and you can’t have that in a room where you want to relax and enjoy. Therefore, start your remodeling process by decluttering – get rid of all unnecessary things, like the product that are past their expiration date, and generally things you don’t use. After you’ve decluttered, you’ll need to spend some more time and deep clean your entire bathroom. Mess-free space means peacefulness, and that’s what you should be aiming for when redesigning your bathroom.
Use warm, earthy colors for a sense of serenity
Warm, neutral tones are often found in spa salons, and the reason for that is that they induce the space with a peaceful vibe. Due to their calming nature, neutral colors like beige, blush pink and gray are often being introduced in spaces where we relax, such as bathroom, bedroom and living room. Earthy colors like browns, earth ochres, and muted greens are also good choices for creating a zen retreat. Therefore, paint your walls in the neutral hue you like the most, and if you have tiles, consider updating them – switch your old tiles for white or gray ones, or tiles with marble pattern if you’re aiming for a contemporary look.
Introduce a comfy tub for relaxing and rejuvenating
Every zen bathroom needs to have a comfy tub. In order to create a place where you can relax after work, you need to keep things simple. Design your bathroom with simplicity in mind. Clear lines, transparent glass, and a freestanding bathtub are things you should consider splurging on. The bathtub is often used as a focal point in bathrooms, so you want to choose one that looks good and matches the aesthetic of your bathroom. If you’re looking for comfortable as well as stylish bathtubs, consider investing in quality designer baths, as they will give your bathroom a luxurious flair and provide you with comfort – just like a spa salon would!
Add plants to freshen up your bathroom
We are part of nature, so it’s only natural to want to bring greenery into our homes in order to make it more appealing. Other than clearing the air from pollutants and providing us with oxygen, plants are an instant decorating tool that is often used in spaces where we want to relax and let our minds wander. Plants like aloe vera, dracaena, and orchid thrive in humid areas since they mirror their natural environment. They require a low amount of sunlight, which makes them the perfect candidates for green decor you can incorporate into your zen retreat.
Add soft, fluffy white towels to your vanity cabinet
Soft, fluffy white towels are always welcome in your bathroom since they give off a relaxing spa vibe. White is associated with purity and balance, so it’s no wonder it’s often used in places meant for soothing and relaxing. The fluffiness of the towels will induce a feeling of warmth and coziness into your space and make your bathroom look like a true zen retreat. Stack several of those on your vanity cabinet – bonus points if you learn how to roll them up as they do it in fancy hotels. Go a step further and introduce a towel warmer and take your at-home spa experience to the next level.
Introduce dimmable lights for a cozy atmosphere
One of the things you can do to create a more cozy, relaxing atmosphere in your bathroom is installing dimmable lights. What makes them ideal for creating a spa-like vibe is their brightness adjustability – just by turning the switch, you can easily control how your bathroom looks and the amount of light that is present. Diffused light is soothing and relaxing and as such, it is the easiest and fastest way to give your bathroom a softer look and turn it into a relaxing spa oasis.
Introduce scented candles and oil diffusers for aromatherapy
If you’d like to use less electricity and preserve energy, you can use natural alternatives such as scented candles. Other than being a cheap and green source of light, scented candles will fill your bathroom with soothing fragrances and help you create a space where you relax and let go of your worries. Another way to use aromatherapy in your bathroom is by introducing oil diffusers which you can fill with your favorite essential oils and let the soothing fragrances linger in the air while you take a hot, bubble bath. Pampering yourself while engaging all your senses – it doesn’t get any better than this.
Creating a space in your home where you can relax after a long day of work is essential for preserving your own well-being. By incorporating several items into your bathroom and paying attention to detail, you’ll turn your bathroom into a blissful sanctuary you’ll enjoy spending time in.
