Life can get busy and hectic, so we all need a relaxing retreat to come home to where we can decompress. If your bathroom isn’t quite the spa oasis you dream of, you don’t need to break the bank on a big renovation to create a blissful space you love. There are lots of ways you can create your own dreamy spa bathroom on a smaller scale. Here are some tips for giving your bathroom the ultimate spa treatment with luxurious accessories, soothing surroundings, and relaxing aromas to create your very own heavenly home oasis.

1. Declutter
The first step to peace and tranquility is cutting down on clutter. Remove items you don’t use daily and tuck them away out of sight. 

2. Create extra storage
Can’t find space for all your things? It’s time to get crafty. Get in a spa mindset and make the best use of your space by pulling in small baskets to display your towels, fill glass jars with cotton swabs, and use trays to hold candles, lotion and soaps.

4. Upgrade your shower and/or bathtub
Sometimes small changes are all it takes to get the spa bathroom of your dreams. A simple upgrade from your ordinary showerhead to a luxurious massage showerhead will bring you the pampering you have always longed for, like the Spectra+ Collection, complete with the Spectra eTouch shower head, that includes an integrated remote control making it easy to switch between spray patterns. You can pick a sensitive spray for a gentle, soothing coverage or a pulsating massage spray that will bring some needed relief.  
 

 


 
To recreate the look of modern spas, check out the Studio S Collection, which features water-saving products that don’t sacrifice on functionality. Indulge under a large rain showerhead for an invigorating shower experience.

Upgrading your bathtub is probably the most effective way to really bring that spa feeling into your home. For a luxurious bathing experience, choose a deep, freestanding bathtub, such as the Town Square S Collection, which features a 17-inch deep tub that offers a classic, timeless look that blends into different styles. Besides the deep soaking space, this tub features ample ledge space that allows you to place your bathing essentials close to you.  

For a more modern and minimalistic look, the Serin Collection features the Coastal Serin Freestanding tub, a deep bathing pool that can hold 71 gallons of water for you to relax in sophisticated style. 

 


 
5. Install a light control: 
Add some ambience to your bathroom by installing dimmers to your light control.  Now when you’re ready to relax you can tone it down with some soft light to set the mood. 

6. Introduce some greenery

Plants have a special way of making a bathroom feel more tranquil and spa-like. When choosing your greenery, opt for something with a fresh scent that thrives in humid environments and is easy-to-care for. Some great examples include orchids, bamboo, eucalyptus and begonias. 

7. Choose calming colors and patterns
Colour can really set the tone for a room, so keep things warm and welcoming with neutral tones such as white, beige, or soft blues and greens. This includes paint colour as well as shower curtains, towels and wall art.

8. Upgrade your towels
Say goodbye to your old towels and bathmats and replace them with large, luxurious ones you’d find at a spa. Look for 100% cotton, extra large towels, and consider opting for white to get that clean, spa look. To enhance the spa theme, display your folded towels on a towel wrack, bench or wooden ladder beside the shower or bath, where they’re easy to grab when needed. 

9. Add a new shower curtain
This is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to freshen up your bathroom. Be sure to select one with a soothing pattern in keeping with your spa theme and see what a difference this one change can make.

10. Accessorize with luxurious touches
To put the finishing touches on your at-home spa, enhance the ambiance by adding accessories that will stimulate all the senses and create a calming atmosphere.  Fill the room with candles, soaps, lotions and essential oils that give off a calming scent, such as citrus, eucalyptus or lavender. 

You can even make your own body scrub by mixing Himalayan salt, honey, coconut and essential oils. 

Pampering yourself at home can be easy with these pro tips that will transform your bathroom into a relaxing oasis. Get ready to say, “Spaaaa-h.”
