Luxurious Bathroom Tips
Incorporate soft textiles
Nothing says luxury quite as effectively as soft, plush textiles. If there are windows in the bathroom, hang some curtains or a sheer to soften them. Put a fluffy rug by the sink, shower, and tub so you have something warm to step onto. Choose heavy, luxurious towels that you’ll be excited to wrap around yourself after a bath or shower, as well as nice hand towels.
Dim the lights
Spas always have soft lighting
that is easy on the eyes to sooth you. To capture this relaxing ambiance in your own bathroom, install a dimmer so you can turn down the lights when you want to create a more serene atmosphere. Also, put out some pretty candles that will create a nice glow and fill the space with a pleasing scent. Speaking of…
Make it smell beautiful
Your sense of smell
has a big effect on creating a spa-like experience. As we mentioned, candles are a great way to achieve a soothing glow and scent, but you can also use aromatherapy if you prefer. Purchase an oil diffuser or reed sticks to take advantage of the many benefits of natural oils.
Upgrade your shower head
To create a spa-like experience in your shower, install a better shower head such as a rainfall showerhead or massage shower head. This small upgrade doesn’t cost a lot and is easy to install yourself, and it will make a big difference in your experience.
Add flowers and greenery
Nature is inherently soothing, which is why many spas incorporate colors from nature, as well as nature itself in the form of plants and flowers
. Whether they’re real or fake, bring some greenery into your bathroom to help you get in touch with nature’s natural healing powers.
Gather toiletries on a tray
Clutter causes more stress, so organize your countertop by gathering your toiletries on a pretty tray
. This will make them easy to access and much more aesthetically pleasing.
You don’t have to have a large bathroom to incorporate some seating. A small bench or ottoman will suffice. Not only will this give you a nice spot to put on lotion or sit while you do a spa treatment for your feet, but it will also give the bathroom a more luxurious appeal from a decorative standpoint.
Use a tub tray
If you like to take baths, get a tub tray to hold your book, soaps, and beverage while you are bathing. They are inexpensive and come in a variety of styles so you can get something perfect for your style and needs.
