Who doesn’t love to be pampered and spoiled?
We daydream about luxury holidays filled with decadent sights and experiences.
You don’t have to daydream any longer.
A dreamy at home spa can be a reality of your daily routine.
Ready to step into your day being rejuvenated with luxury?
With new custom design possibilities and expanded product lines, it’s never been more simple to create your at home spa.
But where do you start? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Everything Bathroom has put together 10 Tips For Creating a Luxurious Spa Atmosphere.
1. Luxury Doesn’t Mean High Cost
We spend a lot to make ourselves look good and feel good. And we love to feel pampered.
But a luxurious at home spa doesn’t have to break the bank.
The average British woman will spend over £500,000 on fashion alone over the course of her lifetime. But spoiling yourself in a new home spa can be an inexpensive way to look and feel great.
Save those pounds for a spa. Ditch those clothes and step in. Your new spa is waiting.
2. Consider the Experience of Your At Home Spa
We love the experience.
And since there has been an economic shift in Britain you can easily combine affordable with decadent.
Experts note that British spending is seeing an increasing trend toward luxury.
Consumers spend more on experiences than on products. Eating out, booking holidays and discovering new experiences are all driving spending.
Since the current lower cost of living is creating higher disposable incomes, there has never been a better time to focus on these experiences.
So when designing the details of your home spa, consider the experience. You won’t have to fly to distant shores to feel pampered.
You’ll have the experience of being spoiled every day.
3. Maximize Space
Relax. That’s what an at home spa can help us do best.
Essential for the experience, having open space and places to sit and relax are one aspect that turns a typical bathroom into a spa.
A home bathroom is simply about function. A home spa revels in form as well.
Focusing on the flow as well as space will keep your eyes basking in relaxation every time you enter your at home spa.
4. A Corner Shower
In maximizing space, many homeowners opt for a corner shower. Ranging in design possibilities, a corner shower can be inexpensive, beautiful, and efficient.
It also can make such great use of space you may want to opt for a larger shower than you’d thought possible!
Don’t save space with your corner shower. Use that space for more room under the shower head washing away stress and basking in the relaxing power of a spa.
5. Sit Down for This
With all that extra space a corner shower can make use of, why not have a place to sit down and relax in your shower?
While many might associate shower seating with safety, a place to perch means pampering your skin with pumice stones, exfoliating creams, and extra long conditioning. It can also just mean a place to sit down, relax, and soak it all in.
With a variety of functional and beautiful designs, a shower seat can transform into a throne for your home spa.
6. Slip into the Bath
Beyond being able to sit in the shower to relax, there are few things more relaxing than a bath. By maximizing space through shower design, a bathtub can become the centerpiece of your spa.
7. Spa Products
Need some inspiration on what your home spa should look and feel like? Take a peek at Britain’s best spa hotels and you’re sure to want to emulate their luxury.
One thing they all have in common is high-quality spa products.
Here’s a few you may want to make sure to stock:
- Mineral Bath Salts
- Shower Oils
- Bubble Bath
- Purifying Masks
- Exfoliating Creams
8. Towels, Robes, and Slippers
Plush. The difference between a bathroom and a spa is in the soft textures of your towels, robes, and slippers.
You’ve relaxed in the bath, conditioned and scrubbed. The spa experience isn’t over, it’s just beginning.
Carefully selecting high end towels and robes to wrap yourself in and relax in the warm glow will make every trip to your at home spa one that leaves you feeling refreshed. On colder days crank up the towel rail so your basked in warmth when you wrap that robe around you.
Step into those slippers and inhale the healing steam of aromatherapy.
Have you ever enjoyed a eucalyptus steam at your favorite luxury spa? Part of preparing to pamper yourself means designing a spa that looks, feels, and smells delicious.
Beyond their delicious scents, essential oils and aromatherapy are proven to work. They relieve stress, promote overall health, and can protect you against a slew of ailments.
You may plan to have a few drops on hand to sprinkle in your bath. Or you may opt for a steam diffuser to surround yourself with the experience.
Beyond eucalyptus, just consider some of the options to enhance your experience:
- Tea Tree
You’ll be able to adjust the healing steam in your spa depending on your desires.
Another way to infuse your home spa with aromatherapy and relaxation is through candles. When thinking about putting on the finishing touches of decoration there are few simple ideas that work as well.
One major difference between a bathroom and a home spa is the quality of decoration. Some of this will be achieved through your spa quality products, towels, bathroom vanity furniture, and fixtures.
But decorating means tying everything together. It doesn’t always have to be expensive either.
Add a print, or bring in more space and light. The details of your at home spa are where the luxury shines.
