The general idea of a bathroom is to get clean and “freshen” up at the end of the day, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a cozy and relaxing experience. Some even consider a bathroom to be their private, spa-like relaxing retreat. It’s true! You can seriously zone out in your own bathroom with the right tips that we will share with you in this article. With the right approach, you can even give your bathroom a good facelift on a budget
When washing up in the tub, you’d want to be as comfortable and lonesome as possible. So we suggest adding some kind of opaque barrier. This is a more decent option to consider over glass doors or a tub that comes without a curtain. Choose an opaque tub curtain with a bold pattern that goes with the rest of your bathroom’s decor, turning it into your own private paradise.
There are various ways for you to warm your towel for a relaxing bathroom trip. You can either throw your bath towels in the clothes dryer or put them on a hot radiator for 20 minutes before using them. Or you can also invest in a towel warmer. The towel warmer can also double as a room heater. There are two types of towel warmers; wall-mounted models that you must hard-wire into your electrical system and freestanding models that go directly into an electrical socket.
A bath mat is a usual accessory to keep around, especially one that’s both cozy and adorable. So be sure to get yourself one that fulfills those two characteristics nicely. We suggest going for either the Flamingo Memory Foam Bath Mat or the Yimobra Memory Foam Bath Mat.
Have you ever been to a high-end bathroom that is equipped with comfortable seating arrangements, like a tufted ottoman, an ornately carved armchair or a simple garden stool? If not and you’re interested, you can spice up your bathroom in a similar manner as well. Instead of doing your pedicure on the toilet seat, you can just do so on your very own regal throne.
If you want your bathroom to give a little bit of that mother nature goodness, then you can try getting a rain showerhead. Its overhead design allows water to fall straight down like actual rain, which makes taking a shower a soothing journey.
Bathrooms do need some storage space, especially if you have a large family. But to really spice it up, it would be better if you get yourself a shelving system that performs double-duty as storage as well as decoration. Be on the lookout for freestanding shelving units, wall-hanging shelves, and over-the-toilet shelves that you can both organize, and display towels, bottles and more.
Many of us can’t help but opt for contractor-grade mirrors that are on sale at the bathroom aisle at the local hardware store. But if you want your bathroom to really stand out, we recommend getting a mirror that gives off a little more personality and is smart on storage instead of going for a standard medicine cabinet. And if you’re pretty tight on the budget, then probe around flea markets for more affordable mirrors or you can try making one yourself if you like.
Bath bombs, bubble bath, and bath salts can dial up your bathroom’s decor to higher levels. You’d especially want to consider bath bombs as they come in all kinds of creative shapes and colors, and your bathroom’s aesthetic will be phenomenal with a basket of pretty bath bombs sitting on your shelf or on the vanity.
Bland towel racks are just lifeless bars that you just hang your towels on. But there are others that come in all manner of shapes and types that can either hang or display towels. You can opt for hooks instead of towel racks for a more lived-in, cozier look or invest in curved towel shelves that allow you to store rolled towels.
