To achieve the look, colour is an important aspect. Neutral tones will provide a serene feel so opt for off whites and greys. Keeping it simple and minimalist is the key to relaxation.
A great way to add colour without taking away from this serene atmosphere is to add greenery. Bathroom plants are the essential element to take relaxation to the next level and bring you closer to nature.
Showers might be an essential part of the morning routine, but there’s no reason why your shower can’t be as luxurious as the rest of the bathroom. Rain shower heads are becoming increasingly popular and installing one the perfect way to get your bathroom one step closer to becoming your own personal spa.
Freestanding or inset bathtubs
The pièce de résistance of any spa bathroom is, of course, the tub that you will spend your evenings soaking in. If you are after the ultimate luxury feel, then consider installing an inset spa bath.
Alternatively, freestanding baths have seen a rise in popularity in recent years and installing one would add elegant style to any bathroom.
Whichever option you go for, a great accessory to complete the look is a wooden bath tray so that your drink or book is easily accessible, ensuring your soak in the bath is as relaxing as possible.
Don’t forget about music – bathroom fixtures often come with built-in bluetooth speakers so you can simply select a calming playlist on your phone.
Linens, candles and other finishing touches
Other finishing touches to evoke the spa bathroom style are fresh white linens, scented candles and luxury bath oils. Invest in some attractive storage items to keep these and another extra items out of sight to keep the room as clutter-free as possible.
Once you’ve created the perfect spa bathroom for you and your home, all you need to do is relax.
