Decorate your bathroom like a spa

After a long hard day, nothing would be better than taking a hot bath to drown the fatigue and stress. But it can be hard to relax in our bathrooms. They are messy and not designed to be relaxing places. You can create a spa-like bathroom easily that can mimic the sophistication and luxury of your favorite spas. A home spa is a great way to create a tranquil retreat that promotes good health and reduces stress. 

A bathroom spa makeover does not have to be an expensive venture. With these simple decorating tips, you can achieve spa-like luxury in your home.

  1. Eliminate the clutter

A spa is a clean, organized, and efficient space, so step one is to remove the clutter. You want to keep the bathroom essentials on hand but tucked away neatly in designated storage areas. Storage trays, tiered trays, and wicker baskets are great ways to store items like hair styling devices, makeup, towels, and other bathroom essentials.  

  1. Play with the lighting

Effectively use chandeliers, wall sconces, and recessed lighting fixtures to add some drama and sophistication. For that extra lush feel add some dimmer switches. They have the same effect as candlelight. You can add more natural lighting to your bathroom with some mirrors. Take it a step further by adding custom cut designer quality mirror frames to your mirrors through trusted dealers like MirrorChic, or search online for inspiration.

  1. Add hints of Nature

Lush greenery aids in creating a healthy, tranquil environment. Placing potted plants on counters, ledges or the floor as well as hanging them can add a touch of color, energy, and personality. Since bathrooms have less lighting, higher humidity, and warmer temperatures, it is essential to find plants that can stand such conditions. These include aloevera, bamboo, orchids, begonias, and more. 

  1. Change the colors

You must choose soothing colors to set the right tone for your home spa. Neutral colors like white, beige, browns and soft grays have a calming effect. You can add small doses of color with plants, accents, or artwork. For a girlish more feminine look, try some pastels.

  1. Add a bathtub caddy

Bathtub caddies are a great addition to your bathroom. They are a perfect place for your wine glass, book, and bathroom accessories. They are available in a variety of styles from reclaimed wood to metal, so you are sure to find one that suits your style. 

  1. Add softness

Surround yourself with softness from sumptuous towels to cozy robes, fluffy slippers, and luxurious bath mats. Soft, nurturing textures are the key to creating that spa-like feel in your bathroom. A good towel is one of life’s many luxuries. They should be soft, absorbent, and fast-drying. Build a towel wardrobe that does not take up plenty of space and go vertical. 

Every spa experience starts with the aroma that instantly soothes and relax you. To complete your spa ambiance, use scents to replicate the aromatherapy found in spas. Essential oils such as eucalyptus, mint, tea tree jasmine, or lavender will bring the spa to your home.
