Don’t rely only on the overhead light to keep your bathroom well lighted. Install some stylish lamps in various areas of the bathroom to create a uniform lighted environment.
LET IN NATURAL LIGHT
Natural light is an essential part of getting the mind to relax, it also triggers the release of happiness-inducing hormones. It can be a large window on one wall or a medium sized window next to the bathtub. The view will also be very relaxing.
ADD PIECE OF ART
It can be a large painting hanging on a wall, a wacky pattern on the bathroom tiles or a large sculpture placed in a strategic position.
AS NEAT AS POSSIBLE
Wouldn’t you think twice about returning to a spa that was cluttered and disorganized? Do not leave towel lying around everywhere or your bath oils arranged haphazardly on the bathroom counter.
USE WHITE AS PRIMARY COLOR
Have you ever noticed that most spa-style bathrooms use a lot of white? Use it on the ceiling and the walls. The lights in the bathroom should also complement this white spa bathroom decor.
One thing that makes spas so relaxing is the absence of clutter, it gives the mind room to unwind. Do the same for your bathroom. Start with the cabinets and drawers and throw away anything you do not need.
Flowers in a vase or pot help create a natural relaxing feel. It also helps keep the bathroom fresh.
ADD SOME SCENT
The ultimate spa experience involves all the senses. So as you focus on what you see, do not forget about scents. Do yourself a favor and load up on the candles for ultimate relaxing experience.
PAMPER WITH SOFTNESS
Surround yourself with softness starting from the mat beside your bathtub to the fluffy towels you wrap around yourself.
DEEP COLORS AND NATURAL TEXTURES
Many spas use natural stone walls, deep wood coloring and other relaxing, zen-like elements such as potted plants to create a feeling of natural serenity.
