1. Tubs, showers, and steam rooms—oh my!
The bathroom should be more than a room to bathe, it should be a room to soak and rejuvenate your body after a full day of work or chasing around your little ones. Try adding a larger bathtub or a shower that doubles as a sauna to give your future spa the boost that it needs.
2. Let there be light
There’s a reason that spas don’t use un-natural fluorescent lights—they aren’t relaxing! Bring in as much natural light as you can by adding skylights and maybe even replacing your windows with larger ones. You can also set the tone for relaxation by adding a dimmer switch to your current light switch for an instant calming atmosphere.
3. Don’t be afraid of color
If your bathroom’s color pallet isn’t as relaxing as you’d like it to be, then switch it up! Greys, blues, neutrals, and natural tones all look great in bathrooms and they are all toping the charts for popular home colors this year. A fresh coat of paint can make you feel like you’re in a different room entirely.
4. Heat things up
Try adding heated floors and heated towel racks so your relaxation doesn’t have to end the second you step out of the tub. Professional spas use this trick all the time to make sure there is nothing that will shock your body out of relaxation mode while you’re there. This may be a little bit more of an expensive option, but the right professionals can help you achieve the spa of your dreams.
5. Detail oriented
Don’t forget the small things that make a spa so unique. Invest in vessel sinks, a finely woven basket to hold essentials and a comfy bench to make things even more restful. Choose faucets that provide a touch of luxury, such as those that start a flow of water with the mere motion of your hand. Look for showerheads that provide massage therapy, radios that can be installed in the bath and even LCD screens that can be cleverly disguised behind mirrors.
Be creative and look for little ways to turn your bathroom into a spa, chances are you’ll never want to leave…
