How to Experience Spa Bliss in Your Bathroom
Cold weather, holiday stress, and short daylight hours wear on your body and your mind. You might not have the time to get away for a pedicure, massage, and facial, but you can experience that relaxation at home. Bathrooms are small spaces that are easy to personalize for a spa-like relaxation zone. Appeal to your senses and create a haven from stress with these steps.
Open Small Spaces
Everything you see when you walk into a spa was chosen carefully to create a feeling of relaxation. Small spaces feel cramped and stressful, so make your bathroom feel as roomy as possible. Put away clutter on vanities or contain it in matching baskets. Put away personal care items when they’re not in use.
A frameless shower makes small bathrooms instantly feel larger. A shower curtain obstructs the view and traditional shower doors are enclosed in rubber and metal. Frameless showers are clear glass. They’re an elegant, minimal enclosure that makes your bathroom feel like a luxury escape.
Create a seamless transition by painting walls the same color as your shower tile. A frameless shower door will draw attention to lavish tile and other shower features. Use the same color in towels and accessories to encourage the eye to travel around the room so that the space appears bigger.
Spas often use colors from nature for their soothing effect. Greens and browns bring the outdoors in. Smaller bathrooms feel open when you use lighter shades.
Expand the View
The same principle that makes shower doors so attractive also applies to windows. A small window by the shower or tub lets you view the outdoors while soaking. If a window isn’t an option, a skylight can provide daylight and make you feel as if you’re showering in nature.
Make a Sink Statement
If you have a limited budget for bathroom improvements, a vessel sink is an affordable way to add a spa feel to your space. They’re usually bowl-shaped, but they also come in shapes that are boxy, sculptural, or inspired by nature.
Swap Your Shower Head
Turn your frameless shower into a waterfall with a massaging showerhead. Immerse yourself in falling rain to rinse away stress or target tight muscles to massage away tension.
