Everyone loves a day at the spa, right? It’s a great way to relax and unwind, but not something most of us can afford to do on a regular basis.
You might not be able to visit a spa every day, but you can incorporate some spa-like elements into your next bathroom renovation to give you a little bit of that feeling in your own home.
Here are a few ideas for bringing that spa-like atmosphere into your bathroom:
One of the most relaxing elements of a spa is the way it smells. Whenever you walk in, you’re instantly hit with the scent of lavender, eucalyptus, or another calming scent. Bring these scents into your home bathroom by using essential oils.
All it takes is a few drops of oil in a diffuser to create the feeling of being in a spa. You can also look to incorporate these scents in soap, lotion, and other toiletries to continue the feeling or provide contrast between scents.
Upgrade Your Towels
Another element spas are known for are thick, fluffy towels that are used no matter what type of treatment you are receiving. This element could not be easier to replicate in your home bathroom.
The next time you visit the spa, ask what type of towels they use and where they purchased them. Then, all of you have to do is buy them and stock them up in your bathroom. These towels are likely to take up more space than whatever you’re currently using so you may need to add storage space or reconfigure your current set up.
Set the Mood
For times when you really want to amplify the spa experience, have some soothing candles and music ready to go.
Spas usually lean toward New Age music, but anything goes in your own home spa. Choose whatever music puts your mind at ease. Home speaker systems make it possible to stream music from your phone or tablet to any room of your house, so any music you want is at your fingertips.
As far as candles, choose scents that make you feel calm. Or, if you are already using essential oils in your bathroom, opt for unscented candles to achieve the relaxing ambiance without overloading your senses.
Relax and Enjoy
Once you’ve prepped your home spa bathroom, all that’s left to do is sit back and relax. Draw yourself a nice hot bath our apply you best face mask and take in the fruits of your labor.
