9 Ways to Make Your Bath Feel Like A Spa

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*.

Spa Style Towels

Roll your bath towels instead of folding them. It’s amazing how much prettier they look from simply rolling them up! Make sure they’re oversized, fluffy towels if you really want to feel pampered.

Bathtub Trays

Add a tub tray to hold your bath salts, scrubs or your latest book. Or better yet, your glass of wine! Make it a bamboo tray for more of a spa feel.

Bath Mats

Make a river stone bath mat or buy a plush bath mat to pamper your feet.

Speaking of river stones, add some inspirational river rocks to a basket or a pretty dish.

Apothecary Jars

Display your soaps, sea sponges and bath salts in apothecary jars. Whether you display them on your sink or on a set of shelves, these glass jars will instantly elevate your bath experience!

Aromatherapy is said to medicinally improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. You could use essential oils for this, or take it a step further and add eucalyptus to your shower head.

Swirl Faucet

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 relaxed mood.

Jetted Tub

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. How cool is that?

A few bonus ideas to make your bath feel like a spa is to bring in some of your favorite calming music or try a sound machine that plays several different nature sounds. Lastly, 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.
