I’ve always loved the spa experience but going to the spa can be quite a costly habit. If you’re like me and love to indulge in the spa experience to help de-stress, well I have the next best thing…turn your bathroom into a spa. Sure, it’s not the same, but it sure beats the price and location:)
Here are 8 things you could do to turn your bathroom into a spa:
1) Keep your counters free from clutter.
I’ve never been to a spa with clutter, have you? You want that zen clear space to just relax, so place your bathroom items in your cupboard or in another room. Instead, use a nice wicker or wooden basket to hold just a few items such as soap, hand cream and white towels.
2) Use beautiful plants and/or flowers.
A potted plant or even a few fresh cut flowers in a small vase or glass gives your spa-like space a nice touch. You don’t have to use real plants and flowers to make it feel like a spa.
3) Use cozy materials.
There are some wonderful items made with the right materials to make you feel cozy like you are at the spa. I often wear a robe. I particularly like this white cozy robe which normally are used in spas. You can’t forget an appropriate bath mat to for your bathroom spa. One made with bamboo such as this luxurious bamboo bath mat is great because it feels nice to step on, it’s non-slip, and naturally-made.
If you’re like me and you like to have a long bath, using a spa bath pillow is also true luxury and allows you to lay in the tub comfortably for as long as you want! I like this quilted bath pillow since it’s comfortable and easy to wash.
4) Play appropriate music.
Use instrumental or other relaxing type of music. A good idea is to create a meditation playlist on your phone then play it through a waterproof bluetooth speaker.
5) Make it smell amazing.
Use eucalyptus, lavender, or other essential oils of your choice. Eucalyptus is great because it clears your airways to allow you to breathe easier and lavender is a fabulous calming oil. You could use a small diffuser or place 10 drops in your tub before turning on the water. I use my Riverock essential oil diffuser quite often with lavender and eucalyptus oil. I like this diffuser because of the minimalist look as it blends into my white bedroom furniture and white bathroom. It also turns off all on it’s own when it is empty and it’s so easy to keep clean with a simple wipe down once in awhile.
6) Use Bath Bombs
Bath bombs have become ever so popular for a nice bath experience. These bath bombs can also serve as a great gift idea. Made with natural organic ingredients, there are sooo many positive reviews on these bath bombs, often stating they are better than lash bath bombs.
Don’t forget to include a good hand and body cream for after your bath.
If you prefer to make your own spa products, there is this an excellent and thorough guide to creating spa products that walks you through how to create your own spa products (and even sell them if you desire!).
7) Use a bathtub tray for convenience.
You can enjoy having a nice long bath and not have to maneuver your way to reach a bath gel or soap by using a bathtub tray. You could even sip some wine and have some snacks in your bath with a tray like this luxury bathtub tray for a real spa experience.
8) Massage shower head.
If you don’t have a bathtub but still want to turn your bathroom into a spa, consider changing your shower head and replacing it with a shower head that could give you a nice massage shower feeling. You can still have a spa experience in your bathroom by simply installing something like this massage shower head. It’s quite affordable and also has a handheld combo.
It’s amazing how easily you can transform your bathroom into a wonderful spa experience. Make a few or all of these changes and save yourself some time and money just by keeping these tips in mind to turn your bathroom into a spa!
