Spas have existed for centuries and are considered as healing places for everyone. They are places where we go to relax and rejuvenate. They offer great treatments like massages and facials while others even go an extra mile of helping you deal with devastating life issues like death of a loved one. They are without a doubt a great place to go to relieve your stress. So why not incorporate it into your own bathroom? Today we are going to share with you some amazing décor ideas to make your bathroom feel like a spa.
Upgrade Your Showerhead
If you have used a rain showerhead in a spa then am sure you have probably been making plans to install one for yourself. These shower heads are quite huge, allowing the water to completely cover you and make you feel like you are under a waterfall. It is a low-cost means of making your bathroom feel like a spa.
Spas Smell Amazing
Did you know that scents create a relaxing mood? Well, now you know. This technique is adopted by a number of spas to freshen up the air and induce a feeling of calmness. Here are some techniques you can use to boost the smell of you bathroom:
- Get an air diffuser: Air diffusers are very effective. All you have to do is add water and essential oil such as eucalyptus oil, close it and let it diffuse the scent all around your bathroom.
- Get scented candles: Candles add a romantic feel to your bathroom. They come in different shapes, sizes and scents so the choice is yours to make. Some great scents include; Mint, citrus and ocean breeze.
While taking a bath in utter silence is a preference to some, it may at times feel boring. Considering the fact that you may be spending a good amount of time in your bathroom, listening to music can be a great way to unwind and relax while there. You can buy a Bluetooth speaker (waterproof if possible), create a playlist and let it play along as you take a relaxing bath. If you can’t get a speaker then you could use your phone. Try to avoid loud music as this may not deliver that soothing feel we want. Some classical music can be a good pick or just any chill music.
Get a Bathtub Tray/Caddy
If you do not have a bathtub tray or caddy then I would advise you get it immediately, especially if you love taking long baths. Imagine sinking in your bathtub with all the items you need right in front of you. No need to reach out for them on the sides or standing up to get them. That is what a bathtub tray does for you. All you have to do is organize everything you will need while in your bath tub and place it on your tray. Bathtub trays are designed to hold a number of items such as Tablets, books, coffee cups, your cell phone, candles and even flowers.
Before you buy a tray you need to assess its capabilities because not all of them function the same way. Find one that suits all your needs. If you want one that can hold your book or tablet then ensure it has a support, if you want one that can hold your cup then ensure it has a cup holder and if you want one that is multi-functional ensure it can hold everything you need. Also check on their durability and material used to make them.
Style Your Bathroom with Rocks
Decorating your bathroom with rocks can be a great way to make it feel like a spa. You can buy some clear container dishes and fill them up with some beautiful rocks. You could then add some of your scented candles on top and sprinkle some beautiful flower petals around the dish. For the other rock filled dishes you could place your soap on top. Rocks give your bathroom a sort of natural look and can therefore help create a very relaxing environment to bathe in.
Buy Quality Towels and Robes
Towels and robes are some of the items you’ll never miss in a spa. Spas usually have some beautiful and quality towels and robes. You should also get some for yourself too. This will give you that warmth you need once you emerge from your bathtub. The towels in particular should look stunning because most people hang them in the bathroom. They should add to the beauty of your bathroom.
Get an Acrylic Bathtub
Installing an acrylic bathtub can be a great way to make your bathroom feel like a spa. Acrylic bathtubs come in different shapes, colors and sizes. One good feature about them is the ability to keep water warm for long periods of time. Warmth is something that each and every spa puts into consideration. They also have quite a comfortable surface allowing you to comfortably slide in and relax.
Turning your bathroom into a spa is all about creating a place where you can relax. These tips will help you create that environment. You could also add some of your personalized techniques to spruce it up and make it worthwhile to be in.
