by Sally Smith on May 21, 2019
No need to book into a day spa when you can create your own spa experience at home. The fine bubbles of whirlpools range gently stimulate circulation and soothe the body and soul.
If you are in the position of being fortunate enough to have the means to set about making your bathroom look like a spa, then the only thing left to do is browse through all of the ideas to see which ones fit your personal vision. To help you out in this area, here are some key ideas for how to make your bathroom into a spa.
- Upgrade Shower Head
When you don't have the room or funds to be installing something like a hot tub, then the next best thing is to upgrade your showerhead instead. There are some really incredible showerheads that can be obtained for affordable prices in today's market, heads that provide a strong jet stream for massaging purposes, heads that provide a waterfall type shower experience, and heads that have multiple settings to give you everything in one. If you are a minimal person, go with a cosmopolitan design shower. The right kind of showerhead can make your bathroom feel like you have your very own set of water treatments on demand.
2. Calming Colours
Sometimes in the field of bathroom design and supply, people make the wrong decisions regarding the colour scheme of their room. There has been a tendency in previous years to opt for a strictly blue, nautical theme that might relate to the water but hardly evokes a calm and serene atmosphere. When choosing your own bathroom renovation supplies, it is best to opt for colours that create a neutral, warm and inviting vibe within the bathroom.
Before you even start thinking about home bathroom spa accessories, the first thing that is vital to so is a big clean and declutter of your bathroom space. There is not one single spa in the world that could be described as messy or hectic, so in order to achieve the same kind of mind-clearing vibes in your own home, you need to undergo your own form of Marie Kondo style clear out. Get rid of everything in the bathroom that doesn't have a regular use; there will be bags and bags of bottles and items that you haven't even looked at since placing them there once upon a time.
Storage is important in a bathroom but to make your bathroom look like a spa, furniture should be sleek with clean lines. Avoid open shelving that displays your toiletries and cosmetics. Low-level storage units in muted colours are a better option. Drawers should remain organised and nest. Look for clever furniture items like tall, narrow cabinets or even more clever, cabinets built around the sink.
5. Double Sink
Something that can be easily installed and counts as a marvellous spa-inspired upgrade to a bathroom is large, luxurious double sink. A double sink unit evokes a very upmarket, sophisticated 'his and hers' vibe that you find both in posh spas and in five-star hotels. A double sink can make a great addition to any spa-inspired bathroom, and the extra storage space underneath will also help you to achieve a better sense of decluttering that we mentioned in the point above.
6. Calming Scents
Without wanting to go into too much detail, that facts are that your bathroom isn't always a room in the home that possesses the most appealing smells. You can counteract this, however, by experimenting with different diffusers and scented candles that really add a touch of elegance and relaxation to the area. Scents like lavender, vanilla, and jasmine are all massively popular in professional spa settings, so it makes sense that those should be the scents that you go for in your own bathroom.
For many people, one of the ultimate home improvement dreams is being able to build a spa at home. The therapeutic difference between a plain old bathroom and a spa is massive, and clearly many people feel the same way because the popularity of home spa ideas and spa bathroom ideas on the internet is higher now than it has ever been before!
