Nothing is better at the end of a long day than unwinding in a cozy bathroom that allows you to take a break from the stresses of life. But if your current bathroom feels like anything but a relaxing oasis, there are many changes you can make to turn it into your own personal getaway. Here are some fresh updates that can give you that spa feeling right at home.
Brighten your space. Because the bathroom is often a small space, adequate lighting is crucial to make the area feel spacious and spa-like. A high bank of awning windows can provide ample natural light plus privacy and ventilation in a bathroom. A large sliding window is another easy lighting and ventilation solution – just add patterned art glass to achieve the privacy level you need and add character to the space. In addition, try using mirrors to play up natural light from windows.
Use soothing colors. Soft, nature-inspired colors are often the most soothing in a bathroom. Think moss greens, watery blues and sand-inspired tans, along with natural wood accessories. If the palette becomes too neutral for your taste, you can always add color with linens, accessories and decorative items.
Invest in quality linens. Soft, high-quality linens will go a long way toward creating that luxurious feel you enjoy at a spa retreat. Make sure you step onto a plush rug and dry off with an extra-fluffy towel before wrapping yourself in a warm, soft robe.
Envelop all your senses. Touch isn’t the only sense that influences your mood. Be sure to give your ears a break with soothing music from a Bluetooth surround sound system, and install dimmers on bright lights or use candles for lighting when it’s time to unwind. Indulge in aromatherapy by using a diffuser, or add essential oils to your bath water – chamomile, lavender, jasmine and rose are scents known to promote relaxation.
