Having a spa-like feel in your bathroom is a perfect way to wind down and relax after a long and stressful day at work. Whether it’s the soft feel, dim lights, or therapeutic scents, you will forget all your stresses and worries in no time. Turning your bathroom into a spa-like retreat is easier than you may think and below you will find 7 ways to do just that.
One of the most important ways to have a spa-like environment is by using the right colors and accents. Neutral browns, light grays or even a pale blue on the walls, with whites and tans as accents will create a calming, relaxed, and inviting feeling.
The scents used in the room play a huge role in how you feel when trying to create the right ambiance. Hang eucalyptus off the shower head, place reed diffusers on the countertops and head on over to your spa and pool store in Forest Lake, MN, to pick up the inSPAration spa and bath fragrances that you can add to your bath water for a soothing “Aromatherapy Experience." Don’t forget to add candlelight and rose petals when bathing to add that final touch of bliss.
Whether you place a nice frame around the vanity mirror, or add a different unique shaped one instead, this small touch creates a peaceful, clean, and beautiful environment in any bathroom.
Place an orchid on the vanity, or add a cluster of houseplants in the corner or on a shelf to give an inviting and possibly even romantic vibe. Not only does it look inviting, but could create the feeling of being outside and in nature. The calming feeling of nature alone is sure to have you relaxed in no time.
Items of Convenience
Whether it’s a bathtub tray or tub-side table, having a conveniently placed table to put your glass of wine, a candle, a book and even of course some chocolates, creates an ambiance of romance and peace. You will have everything at arm's reach while relaxing in your therapeutic tub of aromatherapy and there will be no reason to have to interrupt your time of peace to grab anything you may need.
While this may not seem important, if your bathroom is messy or unorganized it won’t be possible to reach the area of relaxation you are ultimately looking for. This includes hiding anything with labels. For example, transferring cotton balls and q-tips to apothecary jars will take away the packaged look. This creates something much more beautiful and spa-like. Keep the bathroom clean and free of clutter. Be sure to include storage items that help create the relaxation you are going for. Do not use boxes or cluttered looking storage items.
Everyone likes a large tub, and usually the bigger the better. If you have a smaller tub and cannot afford something larger, creating an illusional effect to make it look bigger will make the area and tub feel larger. Adding a rounded curtain rod will do just that.
Everyone experiences stress at work. Coming home to something that you can rely on to give you peace and tranquility for a while will, without a doubt, get you through a tough day. A spa-like bathroom is key to creating this feeling of relaxation and once you find what you’re looking for, you will never want to leave.
