  • Start by decluttering

Your bathroom looks messy because of bathroom items and things that are not kept in place. Remove items that you don’t use on a daily basis and store them properly – in a basket or in a medicine cabinet. Just keep those bathroom essentials readily available and tucked everything else.

  • Add a decorating scent

When you enter a spa, one thing you instantly notice is the smell. When creating a spa treatment in your bathroom, add a scent as it can provide a calming effect helping your transition from traffic mode to tranquility mode. Epsom salts are perfect for a professional mineral bath. Tea trees and eucalyptus are perfect for refreshing and revitalizing feelings. Ylang ylang and neroli are conducive for sleeping. 

  • Glowing candles

A spa can make you look and feel good so too much lighting is not recommended. Lower your lighting and replace it with something romantic such as candlelight. Candlelight can flatter any skin tone, making your skin look velvety. 

  • Introduce plants

Plants have a way of making a room look more inviting and it applies with your bathroom room. Use easy to care succulents or air plants for a low maintenance requirement while creating a sophisticated feel inside your bathroom.

Spas have luxurious towels and it makes you feel comfortable and treated like royalty. Indulge yourself in comfy, warm and fluffy towels to complete that spa-like feeling. Your towels are always visible too so invest in a pair of nice-looking towels and instantly upgrade your bathroom’s look.
