Now winter’s around the corner, darker days and gloomy weather can take their toll on your energy and mood. But transform your bathroom into a spa and you can pamper yourself, relax and unwind – the perfect antidote to the winter blues!
You don’t need to completely renovate your bathroom to create your own stylish retreat, either. Make a few changes to your bathroom’s décor, and they will work together to create a relaxing and luxurious atmosphere.
How to get the look:
Choose calming colours
Skip the bold accents and strong colours: the theme for a spa bathroom is serenity. Choose neutral colours like white, beige or earth tones to create a soothing environment. And if you are craving a bit of colour, opt for muted blues or greens to promote peace and evoke a natural feel.
Invest in luxe towels and bathrobes
No spa is complete without fluffy towels to cocoon yourself in! Investing in some decadent oversized towels and bathrobes won’t just add to your comfort – keeping them on display will enhance the luxurious feel of your décor. Take a look at Frette.com for a great range of spa quality towels and robes.
Indoor plants are an easy way to create a tranquil setting. They will add life to your bathroom and they’ll also help promote a healthy environment by purifying the air. Go for low maintenance options like succulents in chic ceramic pots, or spider plants spilling from hanging baskets.
Indulge all the senses
Candles will take the relaxing ambience of your bathroom to the next level, helping you de-stress after a long day. Choose candles fragranced with your favourite scent, or add a drop of aromatherapy oil to your tub to ensure your worries are left at the door.
Use natural materials
Bringing elements of nature indoors promotes your wellbeing and adds an inviting touch to your décor. Swap chrome or plastic for natural materials; think wooden towel ladders, loofahs and wicker baskets. Handcrafted ceramic tiles and veined marble also work well to evoke the senses and create a soothing ambience. The White Company has a chic range of natural bathroom accessories perfect for a spa environment.
Clear away the clutter
Is your bathroom cluttered with items you don't use every day? Clutter creates stress, so store them out of sight underneath your sink, in a basket or in a cabinet instead. Invest in a chic wooden caddy for the top of your tub to keep your essentials handy.
Add a piece of art
Art isn’t just for your living room and bedroom! Give your new spa some personality and hang a piece of coordinating wall art. This final touch will complete your design and make it feel more welcoming. Take a look at Desenio for a lovely range of prints inspired by nature.
