It’s always nice to have a relaxing place to retreat to when you get home from a long day at work. For many people, that retreat can be a bathroom that they have transformed into a Zen-like spa. No matter the state of your current bathroom, there are plenty of tips and tricks you can use to transform the space to provide you with that retreat you deserve.
Here is a look at some DIY techniques you can use that are designed to provide the maximum amount of impact.
Paint the Walls
The first thing on the list should be to paint the walls. It doesn’t matter what you do to your washroom, if the walls aren’t a soft, soothing, neutral colour then you won’t be able to achieve that spa-like feel. Common colours people choose are soft warm greys, taupe, beige, and even soft pale green or blue.
A Bath Tray That is Fully Stocked
The next step will be to gather up all those spa essentials. This includes such things as essential oils, scented soaps and bubble baths, loofah sponges, and a pumice just to name a few. Look for a tray that rests on the sides of the bathtub to stores all your essential items. It will make it handy to reach while you’re soaking in the tub.
No spa is complete without a selection of luxury towels, face cloths, and a bath mat. You can pick soft neutral shades again and look for plush towels that are thick and soft. For that added touch, you can even install a heated towel rail, such as the ones available through warmrooms.co.uk. Heated towels are perfect for those cold, damp winter nights.
Spas are also known for their soft dim lighting, which helps to create that sense of relaxation. You can create the same effect at home by installing a lovely chandelier with a dimmer switch in your washroom. You can further the effect by also placing lightly scented candles in the room.
Get Rid of All Unnecessary Items
Here’s a tip that won’t cost you a cent, but is essential for the design. You’ll need to declutter the entire space and take away anything that isn’t absolutely essential. A spa should feel inviting, clean, and fresh. If your countertop is cluttered with makeup and hair products, it’s time to pack them away in decorative storage bins or under the sink.
Gentle Relaxing Music to Set the Atmosphere
The final touch is all about sound. You can purchase a waterproof speaker or stereo that will allow you to play calming spa music. This music will also help to drown out noise from outside the bathroom.
A Place You want to Spend Time In
Each of these tips will help you to create a bathroom you actually want to spend time in to relax and unwind. You’ll be able to enjoy a spa visit each and every day thanks to the transformation that has taken place.
