Bathroom Spa on a Budget
Being able to relax is important. If you want to be able to perform at you best and meet your goals, learning how to relax is something you really need to do. Creating a home that is a place that you can unwind in, and recharge is important. A good way to do this is to create a bathroom spa , something that is far easier to do than you may think. To help you to do this I have put together a few pointers.
Give your bathroom a deep clean
If you do not have the budget to re-tile and recreate the clean lines of a spa in your own home, do not worry. Deep cleaning and touching up your existing bathroom will make a big difference. The space will feel fresher and cleaner, and be somewhere that you are more likely to want to spend time. It is hard to relax in a bath if you are staring at a grungy wall, so cleaning down your tiles, shining them up, and renewing the grout really will make a big difference.
Get rid of the clutter
You should also take the time to get rid of any clutter in your bathroom. It sounds odd, but putting away your shampoo, makeup etc. while you run your bath really will make a big difference.
Buy some soft fluffy towels
Every spa you go to gives you large, fluffy towels. It is part of the pampering experience, so treat yourself to some new ones for your home. If you can afford to do so, buy a heated towel drawer, or drape them over your radiator. The feel of a warm towel against your skin is very relaxing.
Dim the lights
Lighting is an important part of creating the right ambiance. It is hard to relax under stark lights.
If you can, install a dimmer, or, if you prefer, set up some candles. The scented ones are nicest. They create a wonderful aroma, which will help you to relax even more.
Enjoy a sauna in your own bathroom
It is even possible to create a sauna like experience in an ordinary bathroom. The good news is that you do not need to invest in any special fixtures to be able to do so. You can find out exactly how to create a sauna like experience at home, by reading this article.
No room for a bath?
Even if you do not have the space to install a bath, you can still create a spa experience in your own bathroom. There are plenty of luxury shower enclosures available. The best ones let you enjoy a powerful massage while you shower.
If you really like the idea of a bath, but have a small bathroom it may be possible for you to fit in a soaking bath. These baths are far shorter than a standard one, but much deeper. You use them in a sitting position, but because they are deeper, you are still completely covered by the water, so will still be able to relax completely.
