After a stressful day, there’s nothing quite like relaxing in the bath. The problem is, an uninviting bathroom quickly spoils the experience. Luckily, there are plenty of simple ways that you can spruce up your bathroom and create a more relaxing space.
1 . Use Candles & Incense
The easiest way to give your bathroom that spa appeal is to add candles or incense. We will all have different tastes when it comes to candles, but most of us will want scents that promote relaxation. For relaxing fragrances, try candles in bergamot, lavender, jasmine, or rose. Each of these scents are used in aromatherapy to help one to feel calmer and at peace. When you are candle shopping, be mindful of the ingredients used. Conventional candles often emit toxic chemicals that you won’t want in your bathroom. Look for healthy soy or vegetable wax candles; these are better for the planet and your lungs.
- The Right Artwork
There’s nothing like a beautiful piece of art to create a relaxing bathroom space. Try scenes that depict the natural world, for instance, waterfalls or mountains. When choosing a piece of art online, it can be difficult to imagine what it looks like in your space. Try using the Saatchi Art app; this lets you browse hundreds of beautiful artworks. Best of all, it has a VR feature so that you can check what a piece of art looks like in your home (before you buy it).
- Dispose of Clutter
Some of us seem to collect clutter in the bathroom, whether it’s old towels or nearly empty cosmetics. Go through each area of your bathroom and get rid of anything you don’t use, or that’s broken. Most of us don’t have tonnes of storage space in our bathrooms, so it’s best not to overbuy products. The room can easily look a mess if it’s full of too many objects.
- Floating Cabinets
Floating cabinets are all the rage on the bathroom scene right now! These cabinets look beautiful and give the illusion of more space. For instance, many people now choose a floating sink for a modern and elegant look. Bathroom fitters might be just who you need for a full renovation. Whether it’s floating sinks, new tiles, or a wet room installation, there are many ways to get the bathroom of your dreams!
- A Touch of Nature
Last but not least, there’s nothing like a touch of nature to make a bathroom feel more relaxing. Many plants will thrive in the bathroom’s humid and wet conditions, including bamboo, spider plants, and orchids. The best thing is, these plants aren’t just there to look pretty, they’ll also clean the indoor air of toxins. For other touches of nature try adding decorative objects such as stones, crystals or driftwood.
Whether it’s a full bathroom renovation or a few simple accessories, you won’t regret putting in the time to improve your bathroom. Before you start making changes, set a budget to avoid overspending.
