When you get back in after a long day, the idea of visiting a spa is a dream come true for many people. Unfortunately, this isn’t a realistic option for most of us, mainly due to the practicality and expense. The ideal solution to this problem would be to transform your bathroom into a spa room. And you can do this without spending vast sums of money - you just need to think of ways to engage all five sense and get yourself feeling calm and relaxed. Here are some pointers to get you started.
Most spas take a ‘less is more’ approach to setting the tone of their environment. To start off with, you could try painting your walls in an earthy palette using some nature-themed colours like brown, grey and green. Ultimately, you want to go for something soft and calming. As for the lighting, it helps to have some dimmer controls so you can soften up the overall feel of the room. Also, try to remove anything that may cause you undue stress. Makes sure that everything is cleared away in cabinets where possible.
A Spa Touch
Even though the hydrotherapy treatments in your bathroom may not quite measure up to a real spa, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make them soothing and special. If you have a smaller bathroom, a traditional Japanese soaking tub may be the ideal way to get around this, and most of them also come with built-in seats. An essential item to invest in is a massage shower head, which is both affordable and wonderful. And a towel warmer ensures that you won’t have to suffer the cold during the winter months. If you want to treat yourself, get some luxury Versace towels. The job of wrapping yourself in a warm, fluffy towel never gets old!
A Scent of Luxury
One of the most important senses to engage in a spa-like bathroom should be your sense of smell. Aromatherapy famously helps to boost both your health and your mood. Lavender and jasmine lotions are two of the most celebrated for helping you to unwind. You could also go for some candles or oil diffusers that give off your favourite aromas while you are sitting back and relaxing in the tub.
Playing some music or relaxing sounds while you are in the tub is the perfect way to allow your mind to wander and reach new places. There are plenty of waterproof bluetooth speakers out there which can provide a calming backdrop and complete the soothing process.
The only sense that we have missed out is taste, and you can take your relaxing experience to the next level with a nice glass of champagne. So, after reading this, hopefully you will have discovered that turning your simple bathroom into a luxurious spa doesn’t have to be challenging or expensive, but the results will certainly be worth it!
