Even if we can’t afford to redesign our bathrooms into the spa-like bath of our dreams (like the one shown above), there are definitely a few ways to make your bath feel like a spa. Creating the spa experience at home is all about tranquility and pampering. The good news is, we can do it on a minimal budget with a few simple ideas*.
Speaking of river stones, add some inspirational river rocks to a basket or a pretty dish.
Display your soaps, sea sponges and bath salts in apothecary jars.
Add aromatherapy. You could use essential oils for this, but take it a step further and add eucalyptus to your shower head.
The best reason to create your own little at-home spa? Wine! Add this handy wine glass holder for your bathtub.
A swirl faucet isn’t really needed for a spa feel at home, but it sure would make me feel a little more indulgent.
Lighting and Flowers
Display beautiful flowers and candles in a decorative tray. Adding a dimmer switch to your bathroom lighting so you can lower the lights when using your candles will really help set a relaxing mood.
And one more bonus idea is to turn your bath water into a jetted spa without replacing your existing tub with a dual-jet spa bath. It hangs over the side of your existing tub and turns your water into a whirlpool.
Additionally, to complete the experience, bring in some of your favorite calming music or try a sound machine that plays several different nature sounds. One last idea is to add decorative glass stones or marbles into your sink. I got this idea from a friend (you know who you are!) after seeing it in her bathroom. You can see it in my half bathroom makeover photos.
