If you don’t have the time or the money to go to the spa as often as you would like, you can enjoy a similarly relaxing experience, from the comfort of your home. However, this will call for a few renovations, but this investment will be worth every cent, as you will gain a private oasis of relaxation. You can have an infrared sauna installed in your bathroom with little adjustment of space. We have a few simple suggestions that can turn any bathroom into a relaxing space.
1. Get rid of the clutter
In order for the bathroom to look like a relaxing space, you will first have to deal with the clutter. So, start by sorting all of your bathroom necessities. Get rid of anything that you don’t use on a daily basis and sort your essential bathroom products and accessories. Consider what type of storage solutions you would need in order to keep all your bathroom products out of sight. You can eliminate the clutter simply by being more organizing, and maybe investing in another bathroom cabinet. However, if your budget allows it, you can also opt for smart storage compartments under your bathtub or in your shower.
2. Change the design
For a space to look relaxing, it needs to follow a few design guidelines. First of all, you need to consider the bathroom’s color palette. Opt for neutral colors like white, ivory, beige, brown and gray in order to achieve that spa vibe. You can add warmth to the space through touches of dark brown and green. As far as the floor and the walls go, opt for materials that create a feeling of continuity. If you choose tiles, go for large tiles patterns. As far as the furniture goes, make sure it is all made of the same material, and opt for natural wood if possible.
3. Invest in modern entertainment systems
To be able to relax in your bathroom, you will need some entertainment. Our advice is to opt for a smart TV hidden behind a TV mirror frame. Mirror frames can be adjusted for any TV size, and you can even order them online. They are very easy to install and they will help you keep the TV hidden when it is not in use. With a bathroom TV, you will be able to listen to your favorite music or watch your favorite shows while taking a bath. You can even watch the news while getting ready for work in the morning.
4. Ambient lighting
Lighting is essential when you want to design a relaxing space. Our advice is to opt for several light sources and to only use yellow lights. Keeping a few candles in the bathroom cabinet is also a great idea, especially if you are a fan of long baths.
5. Spa elements
To enjoy a relaxing spa experience in the privacy of your home, you will have to make a considerable investment. A bathtub is essential, and if your budget allows it, opt for one with a massage system. If your bathroom is big enough, you can also consider an infrared sauna. You can order them online, and they are very easy to install. There are even infrared saunas designed for a single person, so you can get one even if your bathroom is not very spacious.
Nature has a natural relaxing effect on all people, so by bringing a piece of nature into your bathroom, you will make this room infinitely more relaxing. If you don’t have a very big bathroom, you can opt for small plants like orchids or bamboo. If your space allows it, you can opt for bigger plants. Just make sure to choose plants that thrive in humid environments. Moreover, consider the light in the bathroom. Place the plants near the windows, and if you don’t have a lot of natural light, opt for plants that thrive in the shade.
