No other room in your home or apartment can make you feel truly pampered like a luxury, well-designed, spa-inspired bathroom. Even if your living room is a haven of style, equipped with an elegant, antique centerpiece and an Italian leather sofa, you can never truly relax in the same way as you can with a glass of wine, dimmed lights, a soaking bathtub, and a good book or playlist. We’re going to discuss some of the top tips to turn your luxury apartment bathroom into a splendorous spa without sacrificing style.
1. Think Comfort First
When you step into a professional spa, your well-being is always the main focus, and the atmosphere speaks to that notion. The same should be true for your spa-inspired bathroom. Add ambiance enhancing items such as essential oil diffusers or aromatic, hand-crafted candles. Make sure to install a light-dimming switch for when you need to relax and wind down after a long day’s work.
Many modern apartments come equipped with heated floors, but for the do-it-yourselfer, that may be beyond budget and ability. The second best solution is installing a towel-warmer. Nothing speaks to comfort like stepping out of the warmth of a shower into the waiting arms of a heated towel.
2. Upgrade your Shower or Bath
We often start our day in the shower, so why not start it off right? A simple, relatively inexpensive, easy to install massaging showerhead can make a thousand-dollar difference. They often come with multiple different settings so that you can customize exactly how you want your massaging shower to feel.
In addition to your shower enhancements, a luxury apartment isn’t complete without a soaking tub. A traditional Japanese soaking tub with built-in seating can be made small enough to avoid cramping your bathroom, but deep enough to accommodate a relaxing, comfortable hot bath.
3. Accessorize Your Spa
A few crucial, inexpensive spa-inspired items can really change the way you look at your bathroom. Start off with a tub-tray which can hold a good book, hand-crafted soap, an aromatic candle, and the essential glass of wine right within reach. A Bluetooth speaker or shower radio can come in handy when you want to soak with your favorite bath bomb and listen to a soothing song. Finally, once you’re done with your bath and ready for bed, you can rub on a relaxing chamomile or lavender lotion that has been proven to help you wind down at night.
4. Keep Out Clutter
If you’re anything like me, you can’t relax in a cluttered room. Make sure that your sink is clutter free and your unneeded accessories are stored away so that your mind and body can be at ease.
