Everyone lusts for a touch of indulgence in their home, and we believe that there is no better way to achieve this than with a spa style bathroom. From gorgeous roll top baths to having the luxury of “his and hers” sinks, there are countless ways you can change your bathroom to get that spa feeling at home.
Originally, a spa was a location where people bathed in mineral-rich water bubbling up from the ground. While this isn’t the usual expectation today, modern spas do incorporate the idea of minerals and nature into their facilities in the form of tiles created from the likes of marble, granite and other natural materials. This is a great place to start creating a spa-style bathroom and is suited to any budget. While solid marble may be an indulgent, high budget option, there are countless vinyl and laminate options available which look just as good as the real thing, allowing you to achieve a gorgeous, natural look no matter your budget.
To continue the natural feel in your spa-style bathroom, we suggest using neutral colours. These are incredibly calming, creating a zen environment in which you can relax and unwind after a long day of work. Neutral colours are typically used in spas due to their de-stressing powers, perfect for any home bathroom.For more bathroom design inspiration, have a look at our last blog article.
A Good Bath or Shower
A good bath or shower can truly transform a bathroom, and if the space permits, the addition of both can truly complete your spa-style bathroom. Investing in a good bath or shower is something you will appreciate for years to come, after all, no one likes a dribbly, weak shower or a small, uncomfortable bath. To truly achieve a spa-style bathroom, we suggest including a deep bath with plenty of room for even the tallest of your family. This provides the perfect space to relax, allowing you to truly appreciate your new bathroom. Additionally, a high pressure, powerful shower is an absolute must in any bathroom, but especially so in a luxurious, spa style bathroom.
To truly create that spa-like feel at home, finishing touches are essential. Think luxuriously soft robes and towels, calming scented candles and maybe even a chaise lounge should the space permit. These little touches will complete the space, allowing you to treat yourself to a spa experience any day of the weak!
