Do you need a place to retreat at the end of the day? Do you wish you could feel the same at home as you do after a day at the spa? Listed below we give you our top five ideas for transforming your bathroom into an oasis.
Pick a theme
Before you begin any remodeling project, it is an excellent idea to choose a style that you will use throughout the design. Whether you want a beachy spa experience, or maybe, a Tahitian retreat will define the choices you make for the room. You will want to pick similar items that match the theme you choose like new cabinets, storage baskets, and pictures.
Clean, Clean, Clean
No one wants to spend time in a room that has cobwebs, dust bunnies, and outdated decor. Get rid of anything old, shows wear or do not fit the theme. You can always have a yard sale to get rid of items with gentle use. A bathroom full of clutter will never relax anyone. It is best to look at some pictures from spas that have the same design style you want in your home to get ideas.
Invest in Luxury fixtures and accessories
When you go to the spa, you want an exquisite experience that leaves you refreshed and rejuvenated. Spend the bulk of your budget on high-end faucets and jetted tubs to get the same feeling you would have at the spa. Remember the beautiful chandelier you always wanted to put over your vanity? Splurge, and go for it! Your future self will thank you. Another thing you want to account for in your budget is a water softener because none of the changes will be worth it if your water is hard. A dimmer switch with a remote is a nice addition too.
Add some greenery
Every spa you ever go to will be full of plants and beautiful flower arrangements. So, forget about having a green thumb, and buy low-maintenance plants like bamboo, aloe vera, Chinese evergreen, and Boston ferns. Begonia’s are excellent options that add lush green petals and several color varieties. Dracaena, known as Dragon plants, and ivies are exceptional air purifiers and do extremely well in high-humidity areas like bathrooms. These plants all work well in low light. You can mix and match varieties to get the color combinations you want for your spa experience.
Soothe the senses
Finally, all the hard work comes down to the little things if you want to give your spa a relaxing feel. Add an in-shower radio or Bluetooth speaker where you can stream mellow tunes. No spa is complete without lots of candles. Calming scents go a long way to making sure you can unwind. Choose theme colors and shades of white, black, or grey to complete your design. Buying thick, new towels and linens will keep you comfortable no matter how long you spend in the bathroom. The sound of moving water is soothing, so a fountain is a great investment. A small one that fits on a shelf or counter is often enough.
Think clean lines and simple luxuries for your new spa. Choose accent pieces with theme in mind to avoid overbuying. A massaging recliner or bench is a stunning feature item.
