After a long, stressful day at work, you just want to relax and let the world take care of itself. Wouldn’t it be awesome to come home every day and melt away your stress in a long, hot shower?
The good news is that you can make your bathroom look like a spa to upgrade your bathing experience. Even if the space is limited, it is possible to create a spa-like atmosphere that allows you to end your day feeling calm and relaxed for the next day.
You don’t have to redo the entire bathroom to have a spa at home. It is as easy as making a few minor changes to your bathroom by adding calming spa elements, removing clutter, and upgrading fixtures. The idea is to keep it as simple as possible.
Let the transformation begin.
How to Make Your Bathroom Look Like A Spa:
Invite Nature In
The best way to bring your bathroom to life is by incorporating natural elements like indoor plants and flowers. They can help create a calm and aesthetically pleasing aura in the room.
Choose the plants that can survive in a humid environment. Consider the natural lighting that the bathroom receives. Place a few flower pots on the floor and countertops around the bathroom and hang a potted plant from the ceiling.
If you think that living plants are too much of a chore, you can go with faux plants as well.
Go for the minimalistic design by organizing your bathroom. Get rid of everything that you haven’t used for a while. Use the counter space for the products you use daily, and tuck the rest in a basket or underneath the sink.
Buy a Fresh Set of Towels
Towels are the critical component of the ultimate bathing experience. So first, get some fresh and fluffy towels that feel soft against your skin. Then, take it to the next level with a towel warmer to pamper yourself with a warm wrap every time you get out of the shower. Finally, don’t forget to replace the old bath mats with good-quality bath rugs.
Invest In a New Shower Head
A nice and luxurious shower head is worth an investment to make your bathroom look and feel like a spa. A simple change in water pressure and direction can make a big difference in your shower experience. You can’t expect to feel rejuvenated with a primary showerhead.
Modern showerheads come with different features such as massaging spray, rain shower head, or a handheld component. Choose the one that meets your needs and preferences.
Go for Calming Colors
The colors you use for the walls and all other components significantly impact changing the bathroom’s aura. The rule of thumb is to avoid using high-contrast colors, such as black and white. You want to feel calm and relaxed, not pumped up with adrenaline.
You can never go wrong with neutral colors like white, beige, or sky blue that set a soothing tone for your bathroom. But consider staying away from stripes or checkered patterns as they are associated with a more energetic atmosphere.
Additionally, you can also incorporate artwork with a matching theme to your bathroom, for example, ocean waves.
Upgrade the Bathroom Storage
It’s time to get creative with bathroom storage to organize all your bathroom stuff in a visually appealing way. Take time to sort out the items according to their usage and nature and store them accordingly.
Use glass jars to keep cotton balls and sponges. Items like hand soap, lotions, and other toiletries look good on a large tray. Place a wicker basket next to the bath for hand towels.
Add some calming scents to create a spa-like environment in your bathroom instantly. Aromatherapy is one of the central aspects of the total spa experience that you can replicate at home by using calming scents to set a calm and peaceful mood.
You can experiment with various scents like jasmine, rosemary, lavender, and many more for a new experience every day. Or simply hang a bundle of dried eucalyptus from the shower head that gives off a pleasant smell every time you turn on the shower.
Start by visualizing how your ideal home spa would look and plan the transformation accordingly within your budget. Of course, it may not look like a full-blown professional spa, but it feels pretty close in terms of experience. Well, that’s something!
