5 Ways to Turn Your Bathroom Into a Relaxing Spa May 16, 2019

5 Ways to Turn Your Bathroom Into a Relaxing Spa, Rochester, New York

Many bathrooms have simple, functional designs that make them feel cold and spartan. To transform your bathroom into a comfortable, luxurious space, consider a few design updates. Here are some bathroom remodeling ideas to create a pleasant spa atmosphere for a relaxing daily routine.

Bathroom Remodeling Options for a More Inviting Atmosphere

1. Upgrade Your Tub

A deep, roomy tub will make it easier to pamper yourself in the bath. Choose something large and stylish; freestanding tubs with clawed feet contribute to a vintage vibe, while drop-in whirlpool baths nestled in the corner provide elegant indulgence. If your bathroom is small, consider upgrading the shower with a handheld massage nozzle or a waterfall showerhead.

2. Add Cabinets

Ample storage space will help you clear the clutter from the counters, making the room feel clean and spacious. For a few extra inches of cabinet space, see if your contractor can recess the cabinets back into the walls.

3. Choose New Colors

Achieving a fresh look during bathroom remodeling can be as simple as repainting the walls or as in-depth as replacing the floors and countertops. If the bathroom's color scheme is plain and inviting, brighten the mood with warm colors and earth tones. For relaxation, choose cool, soft blues. For a stylish, modern look, consider black and white.

4. Treat the SensesBathroom Remodeling

What you feel, smell, and hear in your bathroom is just as important as what you see. Plush rugs or bath mats, soft towels, and an essential oil diffuser can completely change the sensory landscape of your bathroom. Include a small fountain or a white noise machine for soothing background noise.

5. Add a Touch of Nature

To elevate the tranquil atmosphere of your bathroom, keep a small houseplant on a counter or windowsill. Many plants, like a cast iron plant, snake plant, or pothos, are easy to maintain and thrive in low-light conditions.
