Easy Ways to Create a Spa-Like Bathroom at Home

March 26, 2014 4:03 pm

The peace and tranquility of a spa is closer to home than you might think! Simple touches, like adding fresh flowers and swapping out old towels, can give your bathroom an instant spa makeover. Here are five elements that will help you transform your bathroom into a spa.

1. Plush towels
Upgrade to plush, hotel-quality towels in white or shades of cream. Instead of folding the towels, roll them into a cylindrical shape and arrange them in a wicker basket next to your tub or shower. Having a cozy bathrobe on hand couldn't hurt, either!

2. Glass containers
For a clean, chic look, take cotton swabs and balls out of their store packaging and place them in clear glass apothecary jars. Give your hand soap the same treatment by pouring it into a clear or tinted glass dispenser.

3. Candles
Group sweet-smelling candles on your vanity or on the side of your bathtub. Opt for candles infused with botanical essences to up the spa feel. Just remember to blow them out when you leave the bathroom!

4. Luxe bath products
Make every shower or bath a spa-like experience by splurging on grooming products. The lather from your favorite shampoo or soap will breathe new life into your bathing routine.

5. Fresh flowers
While it's probably not cost-effective to sprinkle rose petals into your tub before every bath, consider placing a vase of fresh orchids on your vanity. Even a green houseplant will add a touch of serenity to your bathroom—just choose a plant that will thrive in high humidity.
