Our lives just seem to get busier and busier every year. And for most of us, a trip to the spa is something that we can only dream about with our action packed lifestyles taking up every hour of our day. So wouldn’t it be great if you could bring the spa to your home?
That’s why one of the hottest home decor trends of 2018 is spa bathrooms. What could be more relaxing than stepping into a chic space in the comfort of your own home. An area where you can soak or shower in luxurious surroundings and wash away the stresses of your day.
One of the first things you might notice in a spa bathroom is how tranquil it feels and how elegant it might look. And one way to create this effect is through your home decorations.
There are plenty of ways you can use your home decor to create a relaxing space where you will want to spend time. Your choice of flooring can be important here. Rustic stone floors can create a cozy outdoor feel when coordinated with stone elements on the walls or perhaps a stone sink or counter top. You could even design a stepping stone effect on your floor to give the illusion of being outdoors.
Bamboo wood can also be a great addition to a spa bathroom, as not only is it sustainable, but it works to give a natural, tropical feel to your space. Bamboo accessories will work well. A simple bamboo bath mat can enhance your space and elevate its natural elements.
Using smooth river stones can be a great way of boosting the home decor in your bathroom. Whether you use them as part of the flooring or just as accent pieces, it will give your space that calming feel that should help you feel closer to nature and therefore more relaxed. Adding a houseplant can also boost the tranquility in your home decor.
Candles are the ideal tools for creating ambiance in any room but in your bathroom, candles can be even more useful. Ones with relaxing scents, such as lavender, will help to sooth your mind as you relax in your home spa and the soft lighting can also help with relaxation.
Baths and Showers
Every spa bathroom needs a bath or a shower. If you’re looking to bring in the homebuilders they can advise you on the best options for your home or bathroom layout.
Steam showers are popular in spa bathrooms and this can be a great option if you don’t have room for both a bath and a shower. But perhaps you prefer to soak in a spacious tub, or even a jetted tub.
No matter what options you go for, it can be a good idea to keep your colors neutral and fresh to stay in keeping with the zen atmosphere you’re trying to create. Try to keep in mind the idea of bringing the outside inside, as nature tends to improve mental well being and helps to reduce stress.
