Turning Your Bathroom into Your Own Spa!
Dreaming of your own peaceful retreat where you can relax and unwind in solitude? Transform your bathroom into your personal home spa that you can come home and enjoy every day.
Take a look at some different ways to rethink your bathroom and turn it into the ultimate home spa experience.
If your bathroom is drowning in makeup, toiletries and hair products, cut the clutter by removing items you don't use on a daily basis and storing them underneath your sink in a basket. Keeping your bathroom essentials at hand and everything else neatly tucked away will help maintain a relaxing atmosphere.
Set the tone for your at-home spa by choosing neutral colors such as white, beige or blue to create a soothing and welcoming environment. Bold accents and colorful shower curtains will take away from the calming spa-like atmosphere you are trying to create.
If you have trouble finding a place to store all of your bathroom toiletries and necessities, get creative by adding storage in areas. Use clear glass jars to store cotton balls on the countertop, add a basket to display hand towels or place a tray on top of the toilet for holding hand soap, lotions, and other products.
Pamper yourself by upgrading your shower with a massage shower head. For those of you who don't have a large soaking tub, a luxurious shower head that has multiple settings and a simple design is a must-have.
Incorporate houseplants and flowers into your bathroom to help create a healthy environment and add life to the room. You can also fill a vase with fresh flowers or place potted plants around the bathroom to embrace natural elements.
- Update your Towels and Rugs
Indulge yourself in comfy, warm towels by tossing out your old bath mats and towels and upgrading to new, fresh ones. Add fluffy rugs that match your bathroom colors and that give a clean look to your spa.
Aromatherapy adds the final touch to your home spa experience by evoking emotions, boosting relaxation, and relieving stress. Essential oils, scented soap, and lotions, along with scented candles are the easiest ways to set the mood when creating a bathroom spa. Consider scents like lavender, jasmine or vanilla for a calming effect and relaxing atmosphere.
