(Inside: Sometimes, you just need a little extra something to relax. This is How to Make Your Bathroom Feel Like a Spa to set the atmosphere.)
While it sure would be nice to be able to go to the spa every time we need a little relaxation, most of us can’t fit it into our budget.
Otherwise, I imagine everyone would drop the kids off at school and do that every day! There are few things you can do.
Dudes, this is vHow to Make Your Bathroom Feel Like a Spa–because, yes, it’s possible (and so very, very worth it).
How to Make Your Bathroom Feel Like a Spa
Clean it up!
You can’t get a spa feeling if you’ve got a bunch of soap scum in the bottom of your tub. Go ahead and scrub for a few minutes. I promise it will be worth it.
Make your bathroom feel like a spa with some paint.
Usually at a spa, the walls are shades of blues and greens. The cooler colors of the spectrum give a feeling of serenity and peace. Lighter shades are preferred. You want to walk into your space and instantly feel relaxed and renewed.
Add some mood lighting.
Candles are nice – you can go with scented or regular versions – or consider dimmable overhead lighting. Either way, mood lighting is sure to relax you, even if you’re only in there for your morning shower.
Bring the outdoors inside.
Adding a little bit of nature can give a spa-like feel to the room. Consider adding a healthy and lush fern (or even a fake one) and some smooth stones for a natural and inviting feel.
Bring on the waterworks!
You may not have a bathtub with jets, but there are many ways to make it more inviting. Find some luxurious bubble bath or fizzy bath bombs to make the water a little more invigorating. Some like to add essential oils like lavender to their baths. Aromatherapy is very calming and soothing. Maybe even pick up a bath pillow so you can lay back and enjoy the serenity for a bit.
A Bluetooth speaker in your bathroom is a small investment that goes a long way. There are several waterproof options. You can put on some relaxing classical music, take some deep breaths, and let the troubles of your day float away.
Invest in luxurious towels and bathrobes.
Yes, it’s an investment, but great towels and luxury bathrobes will last you for years and years to come. There’s nothing quite like getting out of a nice hot bath and wrapping yourself in a thick robe to make you feel luxuriously refreshed and renewed.
Add some pampering elements.
Why wouldn’t you go all out and give yourself every bit of pampering possible, if you’re going to go to all this effort to start with?! Get your DIY on and make some bath bombs and fizzies! My current favorite is these Donut Bath Bombs I made not too long ago…
The biggest tip of all is that it’s all in your head. Every single shower or bath you take can feel like an hour at the spa if you make it one.
Sure, a little DIY magic makes it easier to make your bathroom feel like a spa, but at the heart of relaxation is attitude.
If you get into your tub and start answering emails from your boss, no amount of soothing ambiance will make you come out relaxed!
Go in there with the right mindset and you’ll be able to literally soak your cares away.
