Do you crave a spa-like bathroom, but think the idea is just too good to be true? Our compressive guide to creating a relaxing and rejuvenating bathroom will convince you that a spa-worthy space is definitely within reach. Here are some great ways to create an at-home spa experience that you’ll love for many years.

Choose Soothing Colors 

One of the first steps to creating a spa bathroom is to set a tone for the space. Neutral colors like beige, white, and blue are always wonderful options for cultivating a relaxing environment. Consider avoiding bold colors and accents as they can take away from the spa atmosphere you are trying to create.

Add A Comfy Chair or Couch

The living and family rooms don’t have to be the only spaces in the house for comfy furniture. If you have extra space in your bathroom, why not include a chair or couch for additional comfort? Just make sure that you include furniture with perfectly designed backs and plump cushions. The goal is to be relaxed, after all.

Buy Some Cotton Towels

Luxurious, cotton towels can greatly contribute to your at-home spa experience. Here’s a tip: Purchase towels that are lint-free, made of 100 percent cotton, and contain high absorbency capabilities. These types of towels are usually available in a wide range of colors and monogram options. When you incorporate new, fresh towels into your bathroom, you’ll be surrounded by luxury every time you step out of the bath or shower.

For those who are ready to take their at-home spa experience to the next level, buy a towel rack warmer so that you can enjoy heated towels in the comfort of your own home.

Incorporate Nature in The Bathroom

Beautiful flowers and plants can bring life to any room in the house, and the bathroom isn’t any different. Once you place indoor plants and flowers in your bathroom, the space will be instantly transformed into a tranquil setting. Embrace nature by filling a vase with gorgeous flowers, setting potted plants on the countertop, or hanging houseplants from the ceiling.

Spice the Space Up with Candles

If you have enjoyed a relaxing treatment at the spa, then you know that a successfully spa experience involves creating a calm and peaceful mood. Candles are an easy addition to any bathroom, and the right ones can soothe the senses and promote optimal wellbeing. Lavender is a relaxing candle scent that you should definitely consider buying. After buying lavender candles, you can place them on the sink vanity and/or window ledge. They can also be positioned around the tub for a relaxing soak that you’ll never forget.

Choose Soft Lighting

Candles are great at offering relaxing candle light, but you’ll also want to trade your existing light fixtures with ones that provide a softer, more relaxing illumination. Of course, the new lights that you choose need to be reasonably bright so that you will have enough lighting for your beauty routines.

Shop for A Shower Companion


As soon as you get a new shower installed, it’s time to shop for a companion. By “companion,” we mean a shower accessory like a beautiful yet practical bath stool. The bath stool should be just the right height to shave your legs and sit down while bathing. The most effective bath stools will also be equipped with a convenient caddy to store shampoo, soap, shaving cream, and other shower essentials.

Create A Rain Shower

As long as there are not thunderstorms present, standing in the rain can be a refreshing experience, so just think how relaxing it would to enjoy a similar experience during a shower. Create an exhilarating rain shower by purchasing a shower head that is equipped with at least an 8-inch spray face. A shower head that provides rainfall-like coverage is truly a spa essential.

Use A Tub Caddy

Most people would agree that there are few things as relaxing as soaking in a bath. Make this spa experience even more relaxing by using a tub caddy. A tub caddy is a convenient accessory that can be positioned over the tub. During the relaxing soak, you can place a cup of tea, book, or chocolates on the caddy while you enjoy being surrounded by nice-smelling bubbles.

Store Bath Salts Nearby

To ensure that you’ll always enjoy a relaxing bath, keep natural bath salts nearby. Try bath salts with aromatic blends since they are specifically formulated to soothe and relax the bather.

Purchase Calming Accents

In addition to bath salts, you’ll also want to make sure that your bathroom contains other calming products such as scented lotions, essential oils, and soaps. Depending on the type of products that you buy, they can be placed on the sink’s countertop as decor, which will also contribute to a relaxing mood.
