The bathroom is one of the few rooms in the house where people are willing to pay big bucks for a luxurious space. Historically, bathrooms affect resale value more than any other room (other than the kitchen), and a spa retreat can make a home sell faster and for more cash than a run-of-the-mill bathroom. Aside from resale value, homeowners spend a lot of time in the bathroom and want to create a space that allows them to enjoy a little bit of luxury every day.
Bringing a relaxing spa-experience into your personal bathroom is a great way to start the day stress-free, and end each day relaxed. Here are 12 tips for creating a bathroom spa experience.
Clear the Clutter
Get rid of all the extra products and things you don’t need. Clear space gives the mind time room to unwind. One thing that makes spas so relaxing is the absence of clutter. Throw away anything you do not need and put necessities away and out of site. This also helps to keep your bathroom tidy moving forward. The less you have out, the less you have to put away.
Let in Natural Light
Natural light not only creates a beautiful space, but it actually triggers the release of endorphins. If you have a large window, keep it open when you can, and use sheer curtains or frosted windows for privacy.
White can be a difficult color to use in other areas of your home, but bathrooms call for white. It emits a sense of cleanliness and simplicity, as it compliments the lighting. I love this set from Amazon,Premium Hotel & Spa Towels White Set , and for under $35!
Typically, the overhead lights in a bathroom don’t really provide adequate lighting for the area. Add some additional lamps to create a uniform lighted environment. You can also make add dimmers to create a relaxing nigh
A bathroom spa has to have music. There are various types of Bluetooth speakers you can use to create a relaxing environment in your bathroom. Shower to your favorite tunes and block out the sounds of the world and you get ready in the morning. Soft music can completely transform any space.
Just because it’s a bathroom doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful. Use a large painting on the wall, a beautiful pattern with your tile, or a large photograph above the tub. Art adds an element of elegance to the bathroom to make it feel more like a designed space instead of an afterthought.
I love plants in a bathroom. They give a relaxing and natural feel to the space. It keeps the bathroom fresh and can often help the bathroom to maintain a fresh fragrance. It finishes the bathroom spa look beautifully.
