5. Surround Yourself in Softness
From sumptuous towels to luxurious bath mats, cozy robes and fluffy slippers – the bathroom is the place to bring in soft and nurturing textures. They are also key to creating a spa-like feel in your bathroom. Nothing says spa quite like a fresh stack of plush towels placed over a towel bar, rolled in baskets or stacked neatly on a shelf. If you want to take your home spa to the next level, consider adding a towel warmer so you can enjoy the soothing warmth of heated towels at home.
Pottery Barn says that the “rule of thumb is to build a towel wardrobe where each person in the household has two to three sets of towels.” That can take up a lot of space in a home. “Luckily, there are creative ideas to help store your bath towels, from pretty crates to practical rolling carts. You can also purchase your towels individually to build collections with different designs you love.” From luxurious long-staple Turkish and Egyptian cotton to Pima cotton and quick-absorbent microfiber, there is a wide variety to choose from.
A good towel is one of life’s little luxuries. For a spa-like bathroom, towels should be lofty, absorbent and quick to dry.
6. Think of Your Plumbing Fixtures as Jewelry
The shower, tub, toilet, and sink are the main event in the bathroom, and carefully chosen, go a long way in creating a spa-like bathroom.
7. Upgrade Your Shower Head.
The shower is the heart of the room and should be made as decadent as possible. Provide an extravagant and spa-like experience by adding a rainfall showerhead. A steam shower also adds instant luxury while nourishing the skin and leaving it with a healthy glow.
8. Add a Wood Bathtub Tray
A bathtub tray adds instant luxury and provides the perfect place for a glass of wine, a soothing tea, as well as a book, loofah and bath accessories.
9. Lay Down a Cedar or Teak Bath Mat
A simple cedar bath mat effortlessly creates a spa-like feel to your bathroom. It’s an elegant and modern solution that instantly creates the feeling of spending a day at the spa. Cedar is a perfect choice because it’s an affordable water-resistant wood. Teak is also a great choice if your budget allows for it.
