The Best 3 Ways To Make Your Bathroom Feel Like A Spa

Sometimes all you're craving after a long day is a long soothing bath, a hot steaming shower, or both. Maybe you're also craving a place of peace, a place to unwind, your own private sanctuary? If this sounds like the escape you need, you don't have to wait any longer. Everyone loves a good spa day and now with a few inspiring tips, you can experience the same luxury from the comfort of your home, specifically your bathroom. Thankfully, transforming your bathroom into a spa-like experience isn't the time-consuming remodel it sounds like.

According to Alure Home Improvements, with just a few subtle changes, you can transform your bathroom into your own little sanctuary of relaxation. Simple upgrades are key. With these three inspiring tips, your bathroom can feel like a pampering spa experience every day, while sprucing up your existing decor to feel more like a spa will do wonders for your body, mind, and soul. 

Greenery is scenery

Incorporating plants into your bathroom is one of the easiest ways to spruce it up for a spa-like feel. Potted plants can go anywhere from shelves to the floor to countertops. For a more distinct natural vibe, consider hanging them from the ceiling. Brother Services Company recommends having some natural light in your bathroom if you decide to go with hanging plants. 

The beauty of plants is that you can go real or fake based on your preference and no one can tell the difference. If living plants are not ideal for you, faux plants are a great way to go and they look just as real. The more greenery, the better the space will feel. Plants are good for the air and they will give the bathroom the earthy feel you're going for. Alure recommends selecting plants that can survive well in humid environments, such as orchids, bamboo, or Chinese evergreens.

Install a new shower head

A major component in creating a spa-like environment is luxury. But, that doesn't mean breaking the bank in the process. Luxury can come from small details and personal touches. Why not replace your regular old shower head with a luxurious spa-like model that will make every shower feel like a breathtaking, revival experience? It's so easy to swap out that you can usually do it yourself, notes The Daily DIY.

Moreover, House Logic recommends looking for certain features that fit your relaxation needs like a rain shower head, different water patterns, or maybe both. Think about what you want: Do you want a handheld that can detach? Do you want a showerhead that saves water? Do you want it to include a massage feature? In order to get the best out of your purchase, it may be best to do your research before settling on one particular design.

Get into some calming scents

Setting the right mood is extremely important when redesigning your bathroom with a spa atmosphere, explains Home Edit. You want to create a space that's going to feel good when you're starting your day and ending it. You can incorporate calming scents that are reviving, therapeutic, and healing. Buy a bundle of sweet-scented candles at your nearest home store, or an oil diffuser and some essential oils for aromatherapy. Real Simple recommends eucalyptus or lavender for a soothing smell that promotes decompression and winding down. 

Alternatively, try some lavish soaps, bath salts, and a bathtub tray for reading or watching your favorite shows in the tub. A bathroom that always smells nice gives you a reason to spend extra time there that you didn't know you wanted or needed. Give yourself the luxurious bathroom you have been waiting for, and let your spa experience begin.
