As a parent, someone that works from home, or works the standard 9-5 – whoever you are and whatever you do, everyone deserves (and definitely needs) a spa retreat from time to time!
But of course, a visit to a spa isn’t exactly a cheap way to spoil yourself! And with treatments and fluffy robes and the occasional glass of something cold it’ll soon add up…! So, why not consider creating your very own spa experience at home for a fraction of the price! Like most spa services, your bathroom offers a private space where you can take a relaxing shower or warm bath to de-stress. All it takes is a few more elements to evoke the spa-like atmosphere. So, let’s get started!
A very small change you can make, for a very small cost is to change your showerhead. Many homeowners assume a soaking tub is a must-have item in a spa-like bathroom. Yet, chances are that you only use it occasionally, not to mention it may make your small bathroom feel crowded. A massage showerhead, on the other hand, won’t take up any extra square footage. Additionally, you’ll definitely use it every day! Companies like better bathrooms will give you some ideas.
Nature-inspired colours, such as brown, grey and green, can give your bathroom an organic feel along with a calming effect. Nevertheless, if you have a rather small bathroom, opt for a lighter and more neutral colour scheme. Beige, light grey and pale green, for example, can lend a soothing sense, as well as a spacious feel to your small bathroom.
Clear your clutter!
Clutter usually gives us stress. That’s why spas always keep their toiletries hidden and in order. However, storage space is usually a serious issue in small bathrooms…
Well, it’s time to get rid of those old and expired toiletries you won’t ever use! By doing so, you should be able to free up a significant amount of cabinet space.
Still need to borrow some counter space for your go-to toiletries, such as cotton wool balls and cotton buds? To avoid visual clutter in your bathroom, try organizing these items in clear glass jars. Believe it or not, jarred toiletries will look just like a part of your décor!
Don’t forget your taste buds
Don’t assume drinking a glass of wine while bathing will make you sound like an alcoholic! In fact, this idea has been in vogue for a while. Have a look online and you’ll find a wide range of bath trays and wine glass holders!
Soothing scents & smells
Your rejuvenation journey can’t be completed without aromatherapy since scents are famous for boosting one’s health and mood. In addition to lovely smells, the flame of fragrant candles can add a warm ambience to your bathroom, making the space feel romantic. However, for forgetful homeowners, oil diffusers will be a better and safer choice.
