Ideas To Turn Your Bathroom Into A Spa Retreat
What’s on your New Year’s wish list this year? Do you have a few remodeling ideas in mind? Why not turn your bathroom into a spa retreat?
Like most spa services, your bathroom can offer you a private retreat where you can relax in a shower or snuggle down into a warm tub to destress. All it takes is a few enhancements to update your bathroom into something spectacular. Here’s how.
Install Dimming Bathroom Lights
Bathroom lights are intentionally bright, so you can see the details when you’re getting ready in the morning. But that doesn’t make them conducive to helping you relax at night. Consider installing recessed ceiling lights or wall sconces that have dimmer controls to turn down the lights at night. Installing dimmer controls involves complex circuits and wiring issues, which means it’s best left to a professional electrician.
Pamper Yourself With A Soaking Tub
When you think spa, your small, shallow tub enclosure probably doesn’t fit the bill. Just because you live with a tiny bathroom doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub. Bath manufacturers offer a wide array of scaled-down tubs that will fit into any location. You can’t go wrong with a traditional Japanese soaking tub; they’re deeper, allowing you to submerge your entire body from the neck down. Most come with built-in seats so you can sit comfortably and safely while enjoying a hot bath.
Enhanced Shower Fixtures Are A Must-Have
When many homeowners think “home spa,” they think soaking tub. Yet most will only use a soaking tub occasionally. Where most spend their time is in the shower, so why not make upgrades? A massage shower head won’t take any extra square footage, but you’ll use it every day. Upgrade to a multi-head shower and increase your pleasure. You can even add a steam shower in the confines of where your current shower is placed. A professional plumber can ensure everything is in place.
Bring In Sound
How about installing a wall-mount television in the bathroom? Or have surround sound to bring in your favorite tunes? You can create playlists for every occasion. How about a meditation playlist to help create a calming backdrop while relaxing in your soaker tub?
It’s In The Details
Sometimes the best things come in small packages. You don’t have to make a whirlwind of change to experience something new at home. Upgrade your bathroom fixtures. Add a towel warming rack. Try radiant heating underneath your tiles. Upgrade your bath products. It’s the little things that can make the most difference. And create a space you love.
