7 Simple Tricks to Make Your Bathroom Feel Like a Small Spa
After a long day, we all dream about sinking into a hot bath to soothe away our stress. But if your bathroom is messy and not so stylish, it can be hard to relax. Luckily, with a few easy tricks, you can make the space feel more like a spa. When toiletries are corralled and fresh greenery is displayed, even a small bathroom can feel like a sanctuary.
1. Introduce Some Greenery
Choose a variety that lasts for a while and will add a fresh scent, such as minty eucalyptus.
2. Hang a Chic Shower Curtain
Swapping out the shower curtain is the easiest and cheapest way to refresh a bathroom. Visually, it takes up a surprising amount of space in the room, so changing this one element can dramatically alter the entire look of the room. Choose a minimal and fresh design to fit the spa theme.
3. Let a Small Stool Hold Towels
Take a trick from bathhouses and stash fresh towels on a small wooden stool near the shower. Not only does it look great, but a towel will always be within reach.
4. Choose a Bamboo Bath Mat
While fabric bathmats tend to get damp and moldy, a slatted wooden mat feels fresh and makes the space more zen. Plus, no more wet socks when you use the bathroom after someone just showered.
5. Light a Scented Candle
Spas stimulate all the senses, including scent. For a similar effect, light a candle with a light and soothing aroma, such as lavender or eucalyptus.
6. Add Some Art
To give your eye something to enjoy as you lounge in the tub or apply a face mask, hang a work of art you love. If possible, choose a relaxing visual theme, such as ocean waves.
7. Let a Caddy Corral Shower Supplies
How can you chill out when your toiletries are a mess all over the edges of the tub? Instead, hang a shower caddy to keep your supplies tidy.
