Using Bathroom Accents to Create an At Home Spa – Is there anything better than going to the spa? From massages to facials, steam rooms and sauna’s and everything in between, a day at the spa is a rare indulgence that makes life worth living. There’s no reason why your bathroom at home can’t feel just as luxurious as a spa and with a few simple changes, you can easily and inexpensively make it happen.
The first step to creating a sublime at home spa is to upgrade your bathroom accents. The bathtub and sink aren’t easily fixed (it’s an expensive makeover) but by changing out the bathroom accessories, you can easily transform the bathroom. First, choose a new scheme for the bathroom. To create a spa-like ambience, we suggest going with muted tones in rich materials like marble, mother of pearl, or bamboo. Then pick out a new set that includes a wastebasket, soap dish, toothbrush holder, and vanity tray. No matter what kind of tub or sink you have, these new pieces will dazzle and make your bathroom feel new and retreat worthy.
The next way to create a spa-like haven in your bathroom is to go and pick out a brand new set of oversized, fluffy towels. Consider having your initials monogrammed for a special, custom touch. Go all out and replace the hand towels, bath mat, washcloths, and treat yourself to a thick and cozy robe to match the new surroundings. This simple change will make a world of difference in your bathroom. We love buying wicker baskets to hold your fluffy, rolled towels so that they’re stylishly ready at a moments notice.
Another way to add to the ambience in your new spa-like bathroom is to create the right mood with candles and lighting. If your current light fixtures don’t have a dimmer switch, install one asap! It’s an easy DIY job that you can get help with at your local hardware store. Dimmed lights are crucial in creating a cozy, soft environment that will help you relax and restore. If you don’t have the ability to install a dimmer switch, go with basic candles and revel in the soft glow that they provide.
As you can see, transforming your ho-hum bathroom into a spa-like haven is easy and inexpensive. Using bathroom accessories, new towels and the right lighting, you can quickly create the space that you’ve always dreamed of. Add some soothing bath salts and cucumber slices and you’ll think you’d died and gone to spa heaven!
