Turn Your Bathroom into Your Very Own Spa

Bathroom SpaOne of the best assets a home can have is a fresh and fabulous bathroom. After a demanding day at work or chasing the kids around the mall, don’t you look forward to luxuriating in a warm bath, the fresh scent of that special soap and those soft, fluffy towels? These are the little pleasures in life that recharge us for yet another day of stress and challenges.

New trends in bathroom designs can transform your tired and traditional bathroom into a Zen-inspired space with all the spa amenities that give you maximum relaxation and the perfect respite from your cluttered mind and busy life.

Tips on Creative Bathroom Designs to Create that Spa Feeling:

Invest in a soaking tub

In Japanese tradition, soaking in a tub is a highly valued relaxation ritual. Tubs with a built-in heater and waterfall spouts are most recommended for that spa-like effect. Some bathtub designs even allow water to overflow onto a bed of stones, bringing your bathing experience that extra natural feel. This could also serve as the focal design feature for your Zen bathroom.

Connect with nature in bathrooms designs

To introduce even more of a spa-like connection with nature into your bathroom setting, incorporate soothing views of the outdoors that will make you feel calm and rejuvenated. A new window might be added or an existing one enlarged, situated to give the best of the outdoors while maintaining privacy. If a window doesn’t work for your particular bathroom design, consider a skylight. Lie back in the natural light and gaze at clouds and stars. Decorate the room with natural elements, such as greenery and stones. Study various examples of bathroom designs to see what’s possible in bringing an organic look and feel to the room. How you effectively incorporate elements of nature makes all the difference.

Bathroom designs and lighting

Modern BathroomAchieving a balance between natural light from a window and other light sources is key in creating a relaxing spa experience in the bathroom. The type of lighting you select will definitely affect the mood of the room. Choose lighting that will exude a warm, calm and contemplative atmosphere. Fixtures that create the effect of diffused light, such as stained glass or glass bricks, may be just what you need. Dimmers and pendant lights can also go a long way to enhance your spa-like lighting scheme.

Bathroom designs to clear the clutter

Remove unnecessary items from the bathroom; clutter only creates a chaotic feeling. Instead, keep the look spare and elegant. Rather than having your towels hanging just anywhere, try rolling and arranging them neatly in a simple basket. Organizing bathroom items attractively helps create a relaxing ambiance. Try adding some aromatherapy oils or scented candles for that extra spa-like touch.

These tips on bathroom designs should help to get you started as you transform your typical bathroom into a place of total relaxation and calmness. Consult professionals with experience in creating top-end bathroom designs; your dream spa at home is closer than you think.

Spa bathroom idea is really innovative. Also arranging it with small flower vases would provide echo friendliness inside the bathroom.
