Generally, master bathrooms have become larger in scale and in scope for many years. Even if you can’t structurally change the make-up of your bathroom, there are still plenty of things you can do to create a spa-like atmosphere. Here are three great ways to turn your bathroom into an at-home getaway.
- Let in the Light
Good lighting puts illumination in all the places you need it. The right lighting strategy also enhances the mood of the room – it only makes sense that updating the lighting in this space will assist in creating the spa-like atmosphere that you’re aiming to achieve.
Several types of lighting can help create a restful mood in your bathroom. Ambient lighting is the general lighting that should illuminate the room, including natural light. If you don’t have a window in your bathroom, or your current one is bland and uninspiring, replace it with stylish octagon windows to add light and elegance to the overall design. Another lighting consideration is task lighting, which is what you need for proper grooming. This lighting should come at you from both sides so install fixtures on either side of the mirror, instead of lighting the vanity area from above.
- Install a Deluxe Shower System
Swapping out your shower for a more upgraded option will instantly take comfort and style in your bathroom to the next level. A deluxe shower system comes as a prefabricated unit, and it can be loaded with a wide variety of features, including pulsating jets, adjustable showerheads and even a media system that syncs to your smartphone. You could also consider adding a steam shower to truly give you that at-home spa vibe.
- Incorporate Natural Elements
One tried and true way to create a relaxing environment is to incorporate elements of nature into the overall design of the space. Swap out your current counters for a high-end option such as a luxurious stone – granite, limestone and marble are excellent options. It may also be helpful to literally bring in nature to the space by adding plants to the design. A moss garden, orchids or fiddle-leaf figs thrive in moist environments and will inject some extra color, texture and natural beauty into your personal retreat.
Your bathroom has the potential to be the escape you need from everyday life. By following these tips, you’ll create a restful retreat that will be the perfect place to start and end each day.
