Pamper and spa days are the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of daily life. They provide a relaxing and soothing environment to ease away aches, pains, and worrisome thoughts. But it’s not always practical to book a session at your local health club. Wouldn’t it be great if you could bring the spa to you. Well, now you can with these simple bathroom adjustments.
If you intend to transform your bathroom, start with the basics. Take everything out, apart from the fixed furnishings. Empty cupboards, drawers, and other storage units. Clear shelves and medicine cabinets. Remove and wash curtains. Then give the whole room a thorough and deep clean. Pay special attention to seals around the sink, bath, and shower. Remove any mildew and scrub away limescale. Clean shower screens and make sure every inch of the room sparkles. Don’t forget doors and skirting boards.
Decide whether you’re going to enlist the help of a bathroom designer. Or whether you intend to tackle the project yourself. Replace or fix any broken furniture. For example, it’s quick and easy to replace cracked bath panels, and the difference is remarkable. If you’re remodeling, keep relaxation in mind. The intention is to create a comfortable space as well as a functional one.
Spruce Up The Paintwork
If your decor could use a bit of TLC, consider giving the area a lick of paint. Opt for paint and wallpaper that works in a damp environment to avoid you having to repeat the process within a short period. When looking at color samples, opt for calm, soothing tones.
Bathrooms are often limited on space and so storage is important. If you’re working with a very small area, don’t waste any of the available space. For example, utilize the space under the sink with a vanity unit. Consider shelving above the door. Streamlined units are ideal for towels and other bathroom sundries.
Once you have finished the cleaning process, you can begin putting everything back but sort through items first. Make sure everything is put away and avoid cluttering shelves. Pour bath products into glass bottles and containers. Get rid of old plastic tubes and pots. Glass bottles and jars say luxury and your supermarket bubble bath does not. Baskets are also useful for things like soap, sponges, etc.
Install dimmer switches to provide you with complete control over lighting. When you’re applying makeup in the morning, adequate lighting is important. But in the evening as you settle into a long, hot bath, you’ll want ambient light. Candles will help to achieve this and add to the calming mood.
One of the best things about spas is the fluffy towels, robes, and textiles. Make sure you replicate this experience. Toss out your dingy slippers and invest in some new ones. Find luxury towels and a robe made from a high cotton count. Shop at outlet stores to save money.
You needn’t spend a fortune on fancy products. You can find many supermarket branded products that are just as good. Decant them into glass bottles, jars, and containers to provide them with a luxury feel.
And to complete your home spa, add a few finishing touches like freshly cut flowers. You don’t usually find flowers in the bathroom, so this addition adds a little decadence.
