As much as you may love city life, there will be times when the heat, noise and bustle of the city leave you longing for some quiet space in which to relax and unwind. But you don’t have to head out of town or visit an expensive health club. With a little thought and planning, you can transform your bathroom into your very own luxury spa.
Creating a Relaxing Atmosphere
There’s no need for a complete bathroom makeover. A few simple changes can make an enormous difference.
Declutter and Decorate
It’s difficult to relax if you’re surrounded by clutter, so start by stowing items that you seldom or never need, and use visually attractive jars to store things like bath crystals and oils.
Decor is one of the main keys to creating a relaxing ambience. Use cream and pastel colors rather than brilliant white, and soften the atmosphere further by using subdued lighting or candles.
Houseplants that thrive in warm, humid environments are a great way to add a spa-like atmosphere to a bathroom, and you can also hang relaxing or inspirational images on the walls.
Spruce Up Your Bathroom With Accessories
Choose good quality, soft towels, mats and rugs for comfort, and for an extra touch, why not add a towel warmer? Wearing a long toweling robe also adds an unmistakable note of elegance and relaxation.
De-stress With Aromatic Oils
Few things are better for relieving stress than aromatic oils. You can use these fragrant oils in your bath or directly on your skin, and you can also add to the atmosphere by using aromatherapy candles.
A huge variety of scents and oils are available, but lavender, cinnamon and cedarwood are among those especially noted for their relaxing properties. A eucalyptus branch or two will also quickly spread their unmistakable spa scent throughout the room.
You can complete your bath experience by fitting a simple tub tray or caddy for your favorite book and drink. Once you put on some soothing music, you’ll soon be raring to face the world again.
