There’s nothing quite as luxurious as the bathroom in a 5-star hotel. The fluffy white robe and matching slippers, the aroma of sweetly scented candles, the stunning bathroom décor… it all comes together to create the ultimate dreamy oasis.
But you don’t have to check into a hotel for a little pampering.
You can do up your own bathroom (minus the pricey renovation) with just a few simple bathroom accessory ideas.
Treat yourself with a space to unwind at the end of the day, and transform your bathroom into a dreamy home spa (you don’t even need to own your home to implement these tips!).
DECLUTTER THE SPACE
Search “best bathroom designs” on Pinterest and you’ll notice they all have something in common: No unnecessary clutter!
Clean up all the make-up, toiletries, skin and hair products strewn across the bathroom, and neatly put them away, leaving only the essentials out. You can also use baskets if you don’t have enough cupboard or shelf space.
Top Tip: Personal items such as cotton tips and buds look beautiful in clear containers.
ADD CALMING SCENTS
Soothing aromas are key for invoking calmness and relieving stress. Create a soothing ambience in your home spa by choosing your favourite essential oils, scented candles, and diffusers.
Consider scents known to boost relaxation such as vanilla and jasmine, or simply choose your favourite fragrances.
Top Tip: A sprig of cinnamon infuses a natural scent throughout the room.
SPLURGE ON THE BATHMAT (AND TOWELS!)
Throw away your grimy, old bathmat, and invest in one that boasts modern chic. A wooden slatted bathmat is a simple touch to help create a spa-like atmosphere. To take it to the next level, upgrade to luxe, fluffy towels large enough to completely wrap yourself in.
Top Tip: Why not indulge in a soft bathrobe (or two)?
BATHROOM ACCESSORY IDEAS
Bathroom décor is everything when it comes to nailing the home spa atmosphere. No matter which bathroom style you wish to incorporate, these small bathroom decorating ideas can be used in every space:
- Purchase a loofa, bath brush, exfoliating mitten and plenty of skin products
- Use a stool as an accent to keep your spa essentials on display
- Add a hint of greenery with a potted plant or fresh flowers
- Arrange a couple of books and a herbal tea mix on a shelf.
Top Tip: If you have a bathtub, purchase a wooden bath caddy to hold your laptop and a cheeky glass of wine after a hard day’s work.
