Your home should be a sanctuary, a place of rest and relaxation. One of the best ways to do this is to turn your master bathroom into an at-home spa. A popular trend is to create a space for luxury and pampering in your bathroom. You can affordably make any bathroom into an inviting place to decompress.
In a bathroom spa, you want to entice all the senses. You can evoke a spa ambiance quite easily for your senses of sight, touch, smell, and sound. One of the simplest ways to change the mood of a room is with a fresh coat of paint. Choosing serene colors such as light grays, blues, greens or beiges will help transform an uninspired bathroom into a tranquil living space. Hanging paintings on the walls will also improve the appearance of the room as does the addition of luscious plants that thrive in humidity.
You can make your bathroom more like a spa with new linens. Add plush Turkish or Egyptian cotton towels in your favorite colors. A towel warmer is a delightful splurge, especially on cold days. A soft and absorbent floor mat or rug near the tub or shower stall also adds a luxurious feeling.
Scented votive candles or an oil diffuser give the bathroom a touch of aromatherapy. Bath oil beads, bath salts, and bubble bath products in attractive containers also make a shower or bath more calming. You can also change the lighting fixtures by adding wall sconces or even a small chandelier. With a dimmer for subdued lighting, you make the room a romantic backdrop for a soothing shower or bath before bedtime.
Many people find their favorite music relaxes them. Adding waterproof speakers to the bathroom or a music system envelops you in meditative sounds that are common at most top spas.
A bathroom renovation makes your decorating dreams come true, although such an undertaking is often expensive, time-consuming. For many people, it’s worth the temporary inconvenience. Do you fantasize about a steam shower with two shower heads and a bench? What about a soaking tub in the center of the room big enough for two people? Other possibilities include dual vanity sinks, a small sauna, and plenty of storage space. You can also tuck the toilet away by creating a separate water closet.
With a remodel, you have the option of installing ceramic, porcelain or marble tiles. For true decadence, how about heated floors? Some people like having a television in the bathroom, but you may prefer a dressing table for applying makeup.
New technology makes touchless faucets and toilets possible with the use of motion sensors and infrared lights. There are also products that control the temperatures of bathtubs and shower heads.
The choices are endless when it comes to transforming your bathroom. You deserve a way to pamper yourself at home, so why not create a spa at home?
