How to make your bathroom spa like

If you could go to a spa every night after work and not have to think about any of the jobs that are waiting for you at home, would you? I’m guessing the trip getting there would be too much for you, despite wanting to.

Wouldn’t it be convenient if you had a space in your home that could reflect a spa? Yes? Then why not turn your bathroom into one? All of us want a relaxing bathroom, a place we can escape to relax when things are getting too much. Turning your bathroom into a spa is easier than it sounds and can be done on a budget. We’ve listed 8 tips to help you create a spa feel to your bathroom

Bathroom furniture
Your bathroom furniture can make a big impact into making your bathroom feel like a spa. Look out for Jacuzzi corner baths or whirlpool types. Choose bathroom furniture that will complement the spa look but not cost a fortune. The likes of Ideal Standard Outlet and similar outlets have some great deals to help you create your home spa on a budget.

Use neutral colours
Using earthy tones or neutral colours will help to create a calming effect to your spa-like bathroom.  You should use colours that are light to give the room a relaxing feel.  Think about the colours you see when you’ve been to a spa in the past and try to incorporate that into your design.

Add beautiful scents
When we enter a spa, we are hit by the beautiful aromas that instantly make us feel relaxed. You can do this in your own bathroom too by adding some refreshing scents for aromatherapy. Add some reed diffusers on the vanity; add some sweet smelling flowers or even some scented candles to make the room boast a spa-like aroma.

Decorate with spa-like details
To make your bathroom look spa-like, it’s important that you keep it minimalistic. Avoid clutter in the bathroom and use spa like apothecary jars to store all of your beauty products. Why not roll some white towels and place them in the bathroom too – just like how spa’s do it!

Natural light
Ensure you don’t block your windows and ensure that natural light is coming in, it will make you feel healthier and start off your day more cheerfully. You will also be able to see the outdoor scene; the view of nature will help you to relax.

Add greenery
Bring the outdoors in and add life to your spa-like bathroom. It doesn’t have to be much. Whether it’s a potted plant or a small flower, it will help in creating a Zen look.

5 Interior Design Tips for Small Apartments

Having an attractive interior to your home does not always require the help of a professional. However, when dealing with small spaces, such as a small apartment, styling can be a challenge. Small spaces can make a room look cluttered even without much furniture, and the wrong color choices can even make the space feel cramped.

If you’re living in a small space, you don’t have to feel cluttered in your own home or assume there is no cute way to decorate your area. Instead, use one of these five interior design tips for small apartments to help you maximize space and create comfortable, beautiful home.

 

  1. Stick with lighter colors.

Darker colors will make a room look small, so it’s very important that you use a lighter color scheme to enhance the size of your apartment. Stick with neutral or light colored walls to make them appear bigger. You should also use light colored furniture throughout your home too. Consider whites, grays, or neutral colors for items like couches, chairs, rugs, curtains and any other larger item you may have in your home.

 

  1. Put curtains to the ceiling.

You can greatly make your apartment seem bigger by adding curtains all the way to the ceiling instead of at the top of the window. Curtains draw the eye up, and if your curtains go to the ceiling, it will make your apartment look much larger than it really is. Be sure to buy curtains that will reach from the floor to the ceiling in your apartment, and try to opt for those that are lighter in color. This will make your apartment seem taller, which will make it feel less cramped.

 

  1. Opt for hardwood when possible.

Hardwood floors can make your apartment seem bigger. Even darker colors such as beautiful Brazilian cherry flooring can make a small apartment seem larger by running the hardwood vertically. This will trick the eye into thinking that the apartment is much longer than it really is, especially down hallways. If you are installing the hardwood, be sure to install it vertically instead of horizontally for a maximum spacious effect.

  1. Choose clear when possible.

When decorating your home, be sure to choose clear items when possible. For example, having a glass kitchen table and glass end tables will make your apartment look larger because you can see through them. You can also choose clear décor, such as clear vases and light fixtures or even mirrored picture frames too. If you are adding shelves, a clear plexiglass shelf can make your home look much bigger too than some dark, boxy shelving unit.

 

  1. Use shelves.

Shelving units can be a lifesaver for small apartments because they provide both décor and storage. Instead of cluttering closets or cabinets, or instead of using large, boxy furniture, open shelving units provide a cute, attractive, and space-maximizing way to store your items. You can place your shelves in an organized fashion, or you can zig zag them throughout your walls. Just remember to keep the shelving units void of clutter, and you will see a great space improvement throughout your home.
