Everyone wants to hit the spa after a long day at work but not everyone can afford it or have the time to do so. Instead, these people drive straight home, do their household chores, and try to get a good night’s sleep. It would be so much better if you can let the spa come to you. Better yet, why not transform your bathroom into your own personal spa? It is possible and it does not have to cost so much. Here are some tips and tricks that you can use to turn your bathroom into a personal spa!
Take a look at your bathroom. Do you have products all over the counter, used towels thoughtlessly thrown on the floor, and your cosmetics in disarray? This clutter can be a hindrance to your ability to relax and feel comfortable in your own bathroom. If you recall, a spa is always neat and tidy and you barely see any clutter around – everything is neatly stored inside cabinets. You should follow suit and go for a minimalist look. It will give your bathroom a clean and serene vibe.
Use earthly colors
Earthly colors like gray, green, brown can give your bathroom a nature-inspired, calming effect. For small bathrooms, choose lighter tones such as beige, pale green, and light gray to give a more spacious look to your bathroom.
Get a corner spa bath
Indulge yourself and replace your shower with a corner spa bathtub. This type of bathtub does not take too much space, will allow you to soak in the peace, and often comes with spa-like features such as doubling as a Jacuzzi or hot tub.
Install light dimmers
Dimming the lights will make you feel more like you are in a spa and enjoy your solitude. Although it may be more aesthetic to use scented candles all the time, it can be dangerous if you are the clumsy type. Why not get rid of all the possibilities of setting your house on fire and just install dimmer controls on your bathroom lighting? While candles add a more romantic ambiance, light dimmers are safer.
The scents surrounding you has a huge impact on your quest for rejuvenation and relaxation. It has been proven that scents can help boost one’s mood and health. For instance, if you need a good night’s sleep you should use jasmine or lavender. If you need help waking up in the morning, you should shower with the smell of peppermint. You can get aromatherapy through the products you use or have an aromatherapy oil diffuser in the bathroom as you use it.
Play calm music
While you are soaking in the tub, play some relaxing, tranquil music that will calm your mind and free you from the stress and worries you had earlier in the day. You can easily download meditation music online. A popular choice is to play nature sounds such as the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore, rain falling, the noise of a rain forest, and many more.
Your bathroom is a personal and private space. You do not only get to clean yourself up in it but you can also use its privacy to de-stress. As you can see, it just takes a few elements to give your bathroom a spa-like vibe. This will definitely make you look forward to going home after a long day’s work and make you sleep better at night.
