In this day and age, we know we have to work hard and play hard. That’s a philosophy many of us live by – but can’t we add ‘relax hard’ into the mix as well?! After all, all that working and partying is bound to catch up with us at some point. Everyone needs a bit of time off to pamper themselves, and it can often make us feel rejuvenated and ready to start a new week. Short of going to a professional spa, the best place you can relax in at home is your bathroom. However, these days, a standard supermarket bubble bath and a few candles might not cut it. Take a look at some of these amazing bathroom design tips and gadgets that can transform your powder room into a spa-worthy experience.
Make it a sanctuary
All good projects start with good foundations right? Adding fancy gadgets and decor to your bathroom isn’t going to mean a thing if your current washroom is mismatched, old and faded. Consider a complete re-design and take inspiration from super-sleek, modern concepts. You know how hotel bathrooms are always stylishly impeccable? This look is actually easier for you to recreate at home than you might think. Choose a trusted renovator such as Smart Style Bathrooms who will be able to help you pick a design that suits you down to a tee.
Invest in essential oils
There’s nothing like a healthy stream of water coming from your showerhead. We’ve all used a shower before where little but a trickle came from the head, which can be bitterly disappointing. So, why not up the game in your bathroom with an aromatherapy shower kit? These kits feature pods of essential oils which are diffused directly through the stream of hot water from your shower head. No need to pay for a spa when you’ve got it right at home!
Have you ever got settled in a hot bath, reached for your cup of tea that you have balanced on the edge of the tub and disaster! You’ve knocked it straight into the water with you. Once you’ve showered the smell of tea off you, you might be wondering why you bothered. Maybe luxury bath time just isn’t meant for you! But you can now buy cup and drink holders that clamp to the edge of your bathtub, giving you easy access to your beverage. They range from holders for cups of tea to even buckets for bottles of champagne if you’re celebrating something special!
Wrap yourself in a warm towel every day
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of wrapping yourself up in a warm, cozy towel when you’ve got out of the shower in a hotel or spa. In our own homes, the reality can be quite different. On the rare occasions that we actually remember to bring our towel into the bathroom with us, it’s more likely to be on the floor or hanging against an ice-cold radiator (we all love to save money, right?!). Investing in a towel spa means you can heat up your towels whilst you’re in the tub, and simply switch it off when you’re done. They are also compact enough to fit in even the smallest of bathrooms.
