Creating the perfect spa atmosphere in your home is all about incorporating design elements that give the space a luxury feel, as well as using ‘spa’ materials to get the desired effect. Whether you want to transform your bathroom into a heavenly retreat or you simply want to make a few tweaks to make it more inviting, the following tips will help you enjoy that spa-like experience daily.
Clear Out the Clutter in Your Bathroom
Bathroom cabinets that are overcrowded with toiletries and other things will not give your space a relaxing feel. To declutter your space, start by getting rid of any items that are outdated or have not been used in a long time. Also, store any items that you don’t regularly use inside cabinets, drawers, or baskets so that they’re out of sight. The counter space should be for those items that you use every day and hopefully, this is only a couple of products at most. Everything else should be properly tucked away out of sight.
Make It Easier to Store Items
Another way to create a spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom is to incorporate more storage options. This includes putting in cabinets to store your hair spray, shampoo, or lotion among other things. You’ll also want to install hooks and shelves to organise your belongings. To make things easier, keep all the similar items in one place. You may also create categories by separating the items into small containers.
Include Natural Elements in Your Décor
One of the simplest ways to get your bathroom to feel like a spa is to bring in some natural décor to the space. Consider placing some potted indoor plants on the floor, the countertops, as well as other bathroom, surfaces for a more natural appearance. Alternatively, you may try suspending your potted plants from the ceiling instead. Make sure that you choose plants that will flourish in humid conditions because that’s what your bathroom is like.
Upgrade Your Toiletry
Decorative elements, such as visually pleasant bath items that match in with your colour theme, may help to reinforce the spa atmosphere. If your favourite items do not come in spa-worthy containers, try decanting your hand soap, full-size shampoo, and conditioner into attractive bottles to give them a more luxurious appearance. Clear glass jars are ideal for storing goods such as sponges, cotton rounds, and cotton balls.
Arrange your items on a tray next to the sink to give your vanity area a more elegant touch.
Create a Sense of Tranquility with Colors
Soft and subdued colours are perfect for creating a relaxing atmosphere. Consider avoiding high-contrast colour combinations like black and white or blue and orange when designing your bathroom. These combinations might look aggressive and stimulating rather than tranquil and relaxing. Nature-inspired shades such as seafoam green and sky blue may be used with warm, earthy neutrals to create a serene colour scheme that would look right at home in an expensive spa.
