8 Ways to Turn Your Bathroom Into a Home Spa

Last updated on September 27th, 2023 at 11:19 am

If you wish you could spend more time unwinding at the spa, why not create a luxurious retreat that you can enjoy right in the comfort of your home? With a few alterations, you can easily transform any lacklustre bathroom into a dreamy nook where you can let any stress just melt away. To help you make the most out of your downtime at home, here are some tips on how to make your bathroom look like a spa.

Get Rid of the Clutter

One of the many reasons why spa-like settings feel so calm and tranquil is because they embrace the art of minimalism – and you can do the same thing at home. If your bathroom is filled with mess and clutter, this is the first step to focus on. Go through your drawers and get rid of anything you rarely use or have not touched in the past year. For items that you want to keep, use baskets or containers to keep them tidy and organized. Having a clean and uncluttered space with only the essentials will help you create that relaxing ambience.

Choose Colours That are Calming

Spas hone in on the details of their design to create that soothing and tranquil atmosphere they are renowned for. One key element of this is the colour that’s painted throughout. To set the tone for your bathroom spa, stick with softer, neutral tones or colours that are naturally calming. This includes soft greys, blue, and earthy tones. Steer away from any busy patterns or bold colours that could throw off that Zenful vibe you’re aiming for.

Upgrade Your Faucets

Achieving a luxurious-looking bathroom doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. You can easily enhance the entire look of it by focusing on a few essentials, such as the faucets. These are like the “bling” of bathrooms. Whether you have a shower or a soaker tub, pamper yourself with a unique faucet or showerhead that will look and feel great.  

Splurge on Quality Towels

Soft, fluffy towels are akin to any good spa. If yours are old, shabby, and rough, it might be worth splurging on a few new quality towels. This will let you create the full spa experience so you can wrap yourself in something warm and comfy after your blissful soak in the tub.

Treat Yourself to a New Robe

Of course, you’ll need a sumptuous robe to slip into afterwards. If you don’t already have one, indulge and treat yourself.

Add Aromatherapy

No spa is complete without an infusion of calming scents. Use essential oils in a diffuser to fill your bathroom with some soothing aromatherapy. Essential oils like lavender, jasmine, eucalyptus, and lemongrass are commonly used in spas to help relieve stress, boost relaxation, and evoke a tranquil atmosphere.

Light Some Candles

Candles can instantly elevate any space, making it feel cozy, intimate, and soothing. Don’t forget to place candles safely around your bathroom to make it even more inviting and relaxing.

Add Some Natural Elements

Natural elements help to ground us and promote feelings of calm. Embrace natural elements in your bathroom by adding a potted plant or a vase with some fresh flowers. Alternatively, you could add some stone features instead. Upgrading the bathroom is always a smart investment because you get to enjoy its benefits while also boosting the value of your property if you ever decide to place it on the market.
