When it comes to pampering yourself, sometimes the best way to unwind and relax is by having the perfect bathroom. It’s even better if you can make your bathroom feel like a spa! Here are five tips on how to make your luxury bathroom feel like an escape from reality and an extension of your home spa treatment.
Decorating with Decals
When you’re trying to create a more relaxing space, sometimes it can feel like decorating with big furniture and colorful accessories is impossible. For spaces that are small or narrow, wall decals are a great way to liven up your home without too much hassle.
They come in all shapes and sizes, making them ideal for every corner of your home—not just bathrooms! Add an ornate filigree wall decal next to your dresser or vanity mirror, or place one on top of your bathroom mirror. The best part? Wall decals are removable and repositionable, so if you don’t love them once they’re up there, you can take them down without damaging your walls.
Make your own body scrubs and soaps
Making your own body scrubs and soaps is a great way to do something good for yourself without spending lots of money.
Building your own bathtub
Creating your own bathtub is one way to ensure that you have a space just for you in your home. If you do not have time to build your own bathtub, look into buying an existing tub and refinishing it.
One thing people often forget about having humidifiers in their home is that they’re also helpful for health reasons. One common ailment people can get from living in dry climates is dry sinuses, which can be incredibly painful and annoying.
Humidifiers can help you breathe easier by putting moisture back into your indoor air and helping reduce these symptoms. What’s more, having an electric heater will greatly increase your energy bill during winter months. Adding a humidifier to your bathroom helps relieve some of these problems.
Room treatment systems
A room treatment system helps increase humidity and reduces dust, smoke, and bacteria in your bathroom. This is helpful if you have asthma or chronic respiratory diseases, such as emphysema or bronchitis. There are two types of systems: whole-house systems that run on hot water to release moisture into your home and portable systems that use cool air to release moisture into your bathroom.
Although lighting scented candles is an instant mood enhancer, be careful not to overdo it. Candles can cause headaches if they’re too strong. Although you might love your sweet-smelling candles and potpourri, others (including your guests) may find them overwhelming or offensive. Instead, opt for room fresheners that are infused with essential oils such as orange or lemon oil.
Scented lotions, oils, etc.
Choose your favorite scented lotions, soaps, and other bathroom products. If you love lavender, buy lavender lotion. There’s no wrong choice when it comes to fragrance; as long as you like it, that’s all that matters. Incorporate scented candles into your decor for an extra touch of relaxation. Also remember to keep things clean.
