Your bathroom should be an oasis of calm, providing you with a space to unwind with a bath, to refresh yourself with a shower, or to primp and preen yourself before a big date so you’re at your most confident. From the fixtures and fittings to the colors on the wall, everything can affect how luxurious your bathroom feels, so here are just a few steps towards creating an at-home hotel-standard spa.
1. Let’s start with color
You should avoid anything loud and bright in a bathroom as a main color on the walls, instead opt for something soft and calming. Going for ivory, pearl or pale grey will enhance the feeling of space within your bathroom, as well as be gentle on the eyes, instantly making you feel more relaxed.
2. Coordination is key
While you should go pale with the walls to maximize the impact of light, don’t be afraid to be bold with the highlighter color, which you’re going to use to coordinate the rest of the room. You could pick your favorite color here to make it more personal, or go for mood colors, such as purple for luxury, blue hues for calm emotions or fresh greens to reinvigorate the senses. From your plush new set of towels to the vase of flowers on the window sill or even the color of the soap, coordinate this color around the room so there is a natural flow.
3. Add some pamper products
Essential to any high-end, opulent spa experience are the products you use to de-stress at the end of the day. While going for luxury bathroom remodeling, pick up some lavender-scented candles that match your décor, and light them when you have a bath to help you drift off. Pick up some funky bath bombs that release glitter, fragrance and cool colors into your bath as an extra treat, and remember to keep some spa-quality facial oils, scrubs and salts to hand too.
4. Don’t forget the seating area
You’ll find no luxury hotel bathroom complete without a seating area. Not only does it give the impression that the room must be bigger than it really is, but it’s a very practical accessory to have. It could be an ornate chair at a dressing table area built into the sink unit, or just a plush, fabric stool by the window, but seating always adds a touch of class to any bathroom.
5. Get yourself organized
Finally, you won’t find clutter in a luxury bathroom, so get yourself organized and create tailored storage solutions. It could be that you make way for a better sink unit by moving the radiator, swapping it for a designer vertical piece for a neater and better bathroom space, hiding away all those bits and pieces you use every day will make space feel less hectic, and pass the effects on to you.
