After a long, hard day at work, there’s nothing better than relaxing in a hot bath and soothing away the stress and aches and pains of the day. But if your bathroom is messy and less than stylish, it can be difficult to fully relax. The good news is that you don’t need to start ripping out your bathroom and installing a new one to get that relaxing spa feeling. There are several simple yet hugely effective things that you can do to make your bathroom feel like your own personal spa.
First things first; have you ever been to a spa that was cluttered? Probably not. The first thing that you can do to improve the look and feel of your bathroom is to de-clutter and use smart storage solutions to keep everything that you need neat and tidy. Under-sink cabinets are great for keeping all your cosmetics and cleaning products out of the way, and shower caddies will keep all the soaps and shampoos that you’re currently using off the sides of the bathtub. If you have children, have a designated bathroom basket or bucket for all their toys and games.
2. Add Some Greenery
Plants aren’t just for your garden – adding some greenery can work well in your bathroom too. Choose an indoor plant that will last a while and provide a fresh aroma to the room. Eucalyptus works well as it’ll also purify the air and allow you to breathe easily as you relax.
3. Warm Your Towels
A spa that handed you freezing cold towels after your treatment wouldn’t be a very good one. So, if you’re going to make any investments into improving your bathroom space, make sure that you spend your money on a heated towel rail. Designer towel radiators not only upgrade the look of your bathroom to something chicer and more stylish; they’re also perfect for ensuring that you’ve got a warm, fluffy towel ready for the moment you step out of your bath.
4. Light a Scented Candle
A spa experience simply wouldn’t be the same without all the delicious scents from candles and incense, and the good news is that it’s fairly easy to replicate this in your bathroom. Choose scented candles that relax you, and light them around your bathtub for an experience that soothes all the senses.
5. Use a Bamboo Bath Mat
Fabric bath mats might be the most common choice, but the problem with these is that they tend to get damp fairly quickly. As an alternative, a slatted wooden bath mat feels much fresher and can also add to the new, Zen appeal of your relaxing bathroom. And, it won’t get wet and soggy like a fabric mat, so you won’t need to worry about getting wet socks if you go into the bathroom after somebody has showered.
These are just some simple methods of making your bathroom a calm, relaxing space to wind down in after a long day. Which will you use?
