Another idea for creating a Stay-cation setting in your home is to focus on creating a spa-like Bathroom. Once a fairly functional space that didn’t get much attention by decorators, but now there are so many interesting products out there to transform your Bathroom into a high-end Spa.
For instance, this bathroom has a steam shower, a rainfall showerhead, and a large soaking tub.
It’s not just a place to shower and go. It’s a bathroom that my clients love to spend lots of time in-relaxing after a hard day at work.
This bathroom also has a large tub—this time jetted.
And the custom cabinets are designed with outlets inside the drawers so the hair dryers and other appliances don’t clutter the beautiful marble counters. Look at the lighting here too.
Try adding dimmers to the lighting in your Bathroom. When you’re putting on make-up, you can have bright lighting, and when you’re soaking in a hot tub, you can dim the lights for a more relaxing atmosphere. Think not only about how your Bathroom looks. A spa experience is very sensory. Think of ways to delight your other senses.
Try interesting materials like these pebble tiles for your shower floor that seem to massage your feet as you walk across them. Or if you’re not in the market for re-tiling, they even make bathmats in the same material.
Add a heated towel bar or heated floors. I actually installed a heated towel bar in my Master Bath after staying at a hotel where we had one. It’s an easy inexpensive item to add and it’s so luxurious to be able to wrap up in a hot towel after a bath or shower.
Finally, scented candles and a small stereo or i-pod player can also enhance the sensory experience in your bath.
