If you have missed going to your local spa this year or you have had to cancel a weekend spa break, and you don’t know when you are going to be able to rebook, then why not take matters into your own hands and create your very own home spa?
Sound too good to be true?
Although it may seem like just a pipedream, there is no reason why you can’t transform your bathroom into a tranquil retreat where you can relax and rejuvenate. We have the ultimate guide on how you can turn your bathroom into a home spa that will rival any spa you’ve been to before.
Plus, you won’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home to enjoy it.
Think back to the last time you visited a spa. What colours did they use? Were they a nice calming neutral shade or a vibrant, headache-inducing colour? It’s most likely to be the former, and therefore, you need to make sure that your bathroom is decorated with peace and tranquillity in mind.
Light green colours such as sage and mint are known for promoting relaxation as well as pale blues.
If you have space and the budget, then a roll-top bath will add a touch of glamour and opulence to your home spa. This is one feature that you will stand out above everything else and why bathroom suppliers recommend this when you want to create your luxury bathroom.
There are two main types of roll-top baths to choose from, ones made from plastic and ones made from cast iron. Although both offer grandeur, the latter is indefinitely more luxurious and will ensure your bathroom looks and feels just like a professional spa.
No spa is complete without an array of lotions and potions to transform you into a gorgeous goddess, and therefore, you need to make sure you have sufficient shelving so that your home spa products are always on hand when you need them.
Opt for wooden shelving for a more natural, spa-like vibe and add a few indoor plants which will not only look great but also improve the air quality in your home.
If you are looking for a quick and cost-effective way to change your bathroom from chaotic to calm, then an abundance of candles is the way to go. Make sure you choose scents that actively de-stress, such as lavender and eucalyptus.
Always make sure you put any candles away if you share your bathroom with young children to avoid any accidents.
What could be more luxurious than having the floors in your spa bathroom warm and toasty at all times? Underfloor heating can be installed under tiles, laminate, engineered wood, and vinyl, plus, it is extremely cost-effective, as you can regulate the temperature yourself.
You can even find systems that can be activated by using your mobile phone.
