If you are looking for some bathroom remodeling ideas, then why not try making a home spa? You can add a touch of luxury to your bathroom and put together a stylish design that will make your bathroom feel like it belongs in a luxurious hotel, rather than a little apartment.
One simple way to get the home spa feel is to get underfloor heating. This is actually easier than you think to set up, and it’s feels great. Pop the heating on when you wake up in the moring, hop in the shower, then be treated to a warm floor and toasty toes when you get out!
Add a nice big mirror behind the sink, and a deep tub instead of just a simple shower, and you have the perfect environment for relaxation.
You can achieve a lot even if you’re on a tight budget, since there are so many choices for tubs, taps, showers and basins. A lot of what makes the spa look possible isn’t the expensive hardware, it’s the finishing touches – a stylish soap dispenser, a soft and understated shower curtain, the rug that you step out onto when you get out, the detailing on the bath mat, and the scented candles or the incense that you can use to keep the room smelling sweet. Pay attention to those things, and you’ll have a room that you love, without breaking the bank.
If you have kids, then it gets a bit harder to keep the room looking and feeling cosy – because you’ll have to condend with rubber ducks and plastic divers or other toys – but you can still have a few nice touches so that mum can enjoy her me time.
Have a cabinet where you keep all of your best toiletries, and a nice basket to store the kid’s stuff, and try to keep them separate and nice and organised.
When you want the home spa experience, crack open the bubble bath and the nice moisturiser, throw a towel on the heated towel rail, play some quiet music, and relax and have fun!
Lighting can make all the difference between a nice spa feeling and a dingy bathroom – or an overly industrial bathroom. You want soft, romantic lighting. Natural hughes that are very different to the blue flicker of a lot of hasher electrical lights. You can get soothing, soft and warming bulbs, so consider picking up a cosy lamp that you can use for those times when you just want to relax.
Good music will help, so find a waterproof bluetooth speaker and use that to play tunes from your phone.
It also helps to have the perfect temperature for your bath. Too hot, or too cold, and you won’t be able to relax. Pick up a water thermometer, and use that to get the best possible experience. Remember to shut the door to keep warmth in, and to keep the kids out while you’re chilling!
