Spa Up Your Bathroom The Simple Way | Easy Add-Ons


If you've ever been lucky enough to go to a spa, then you'll know just how relaxing and peaceful it can be. Everything is calm, the environment is still, and the air feels so much purer. The only thing is, if you wanted to experience this every single day, then you'll have to fork out a decent bit of money for this luxury. Okay, not saying its not affordable but you clearly want to have a good amount set aside for this day of relaxation for it to be really worth it.

In this case I want to share a few ideas that will help you have that haven you deserve, right at home at little to no cost and no DIY necessary. Just a few additions here and there or takeaways even can sometimes be necessary. Remember, less is more when it comes to wellness.

You see, life can get hard at times. There are so many responsibilities that you have, and that can all begin to build up and overwhelm you. This is perfectly normal as many of us feel this way from time to time, and yet that doesn't make it any easier. So if there is ever an opportunity for you to have a calming space to zone out and be at one with yourself for a while, so be it.

Fortunately, you can have a spa-like experience right from the comfort of your own home, and that's by giving your bathroom remodeling skills a bit of a task. It can be as subtle or as extravagant as you decide to make it, it all depends on your circumstances, but again not at all that necessary if your space is already pretty neutral. Most of you already have a space you can basically simplify and work with to recreate an oasis in. 

Personally this is a major project in our home that I cannot wait to tackle, so that I can have a nice little haven to escape to, its the ONE project that will be the money pit most likely because there's plumbing issues to be dealt with, that we're currently putting off. So for me its a waiting game.

None the less, here are a few ideas to get you to relax in your bath.

Color

When you imagine a spa, you think of soothing colors and shades that aren't too bright or too dark otherwise they will only distract you. Soft whites, soothing greens, and light grays tend to be a go-to because not only are they lovely colors in general, but you're visually able to indulge in them. Once you have your main color, think of a secondary shade to compliment it, as that can be the color of whatever decor you decide to implement into the room.

Nature

Mother nature is a big part of the whole relaxation process, as it's where everything began, so never hold back from bringing in plants. Faux or live ones, either work well. If you choose live ones, you don't want anything too delicate of course otherwise the humidity may cause them to die, but mini bonsai trees work very well, along with Aloe Vera plants which even have beneficial properties for your body too. Lavender is also a nice plant to welcome in, as it is beneficial when its cut and dries, the aroma it brings still remains.

Lighting

When it's time to wind down and make yourself a hot bubble bath, the last thing you want is a beaming bright light that's too harsh to your system, so always give yourself the option of lighting a few candles. They will give off that wonderful warm glow, and you can control the brightness depending on how many you have. Remember that you can buy scented candles that come in all different scents too, so you can essentially get the best of both worlds.

So there's no more excuses. You are in control, and if you want to have your own safe haven that you lose yourself in and just reflect and unwind - do it. 

You don't have to spends tons of money - sometimes it's just the simple things that matter.
