Just because you aren’t a billionaire doesn’t mean you can’t live like one, or at the very least have a bathroom an heiress would approve of. It doesn’t require you taking out a bank loan to make your bathroom feel like a spa. From little upgrades to decorative touches and little pampering tools this list has the best suggestions.
You’ll be surprised what a simple change can do to your bathroom.
1. Upgrade Your Showerhead
An easy but drastic change is upgrading your shower head. Preferably to a showerhead that recreates rain. A rainfall showerhead will make you feel like you’re in a music video. You’ll enjoy your showers significantly more with this little upgrade.
2. Nature (Or Fake Nature)
Plants, in general, will make your living experience better. Putting a few plants, or even just one, in your bathroom, can make a world of difference. Although if your bathroom lacks the necessary sunlight needed a few fake plants will still get the job done.
3. Clean, Crisp Colors
If you’re able to, consider painting your bathroom. A coat of paint can completely change the tone of a room. If you can paint consider calming, clean colors that will make your bathroom feel like a spa. A light ice grey or an off white are great color choices.
4. Flameless Candles
One of the biggest aspects of a spa are candles, but if you’re not comfortable lining your small bathroom with a bunch of tealight candles consider flameless candles. They’re designed to look exactly like spa candles without the stress of, well, fire. You can even set some of them to a timer so that way they come on at night to replace nightlights.
Another great way to make sure you don’t have to worry about candles is by investing in an oil diffuser. Aromatherapy is key when it comes to making your bathroom feel like a spa. They come in beautiful shapes and styles that will make it look more like decor and less like an object to keep your bathroom smelling great.
6. Proper Bathing Tools
If you want your bathroom to feel like a spa you’re going to need the proper tools. Invest in a good back scrubber, loofahs, natural sea sponges and pumice stones. They won’t just make your bathing experience feel like a spa, they’ll also look like great decor.
7. Baskets & Containers
Speaking of decor, make sure your storage looks cute and not just a bunch of clear boxes. Invest in some wicker baskets and glass containers to put your cotton balls, towels, q-tips and more in. People will be impressed at not only how organized you are but how you manage to still look cute while decluttering.
8. Pamper Your Skin
You can’t have a spa without pampering yourself. Make going to bed an experience by swapping out your drugstore lotions with sweet or clean or subtle scented lotions. Invest in a few face scrubs, masks and hair masks as well. These are great ways to treat yourself.
9. Two-Tiered Counter Shelf
If you’re going to have a bunch of skincare items you’ll need a cute place to store them. Instead of shoving them in some drawer or under your sink get a two-tiered counter shelf. It will turn your routine into decor. You can also add in a few pieces of decor too to bring it all together.
10. Bathroom Accessory Set
To make your bathroom look like a spa also make sure your bathroom is cohesive. Invest in a cute bathroom accessory set. It will make you look very put together. Plus a reusable soap dispenser isn’t wasteful.
11. Bathtub Caddy
If you’re lucky enough to have a bathtub invest in a bathtub caddy. That way you can enjoy a relaxing bath while reading a good book and having a glass of wine. This will make you really feel like you’re in a spa.
12. Bathtub Pillow
To go along with that wine and read bath is a bathtub pillow. A lot of bathtubs aren’t exactly designed to lay in so a pillow will help you relax significantly better. These pillows are better than wrapping up a towel and putting it behind your neck.
Eucalyptus, when heated up in the shower from the steam, will release amazing scents that will soothe and calm you. It’s a great way to start the day and also a great way to end the day. This is referred to a bathroom bouquet, it will make your friends envious of your DIY mentality.
14. Soaps & Bath Bomb
You can’t have a spa bathroom without having beautiful soaps and bath bombs. They aren’t just pretty to look at either, they also have great benefits for your skin. There are a lot of different places that sell these and if you’re feeling bold you can even make some of your own.
