March is a busy month for women in the UK, with both International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day taking place. So, what better way to treat the women in your life than by creating a spa-worthy bathroom right at home?
We all need that bit of ‘me’ time with a little pampering and relaxing. Yet, with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s often difficult for women to regularly carve out such time.
However, transforming your bathroom into a luxurious oasis actually takes less time than you’d think! A spa-worthy bathroom can promote instant sanctuary, helping you to unwind and de-stress after a long day. 
Here, The Bathroom Showroom offers a simple guide to creating a spa-worthy bathroom right at home.

Setting the Mood With Temperature and Lighting

One of the key elements in creating a relaxing and luxurious bathroom ambience is setting the mood with the right temperature and lighting. By paying attention to these two factors, you can elevate the bathroom experience to a whole new level.
  • Achieve a Serene Environment With Temperature
The first step to a spa-worthy bathroom is to ensure the temperature is just right. A warm and cosy environment can instantly make you feel relaxed and at ease. 
Consider installing a heated towel rack or radiant floor heating to keep the space warm and comfortable. You can also add a plush bath mat and fluffy towels to enhance the cosy atmosphere. Another option is to install a smart thermostat that allows you to control the temperature with ease. This way, you can set the perfect temperature before stepping into the bathroom, ensuring a comfortable experience every time. 
Additionally, incorporating scented candles or essential oils can further enhance the ambience and create a spa-like feel.
  • Enhance the Atmosphere With Lighting
As well as a balanced temperature, lighting plays a crucial role in creating a tranquil ambience in your bathroom. 
Soft, warm lighting can help set the mood and create a calming atmosphere. Consider installing dimmer switches or adjustable LED lights to customise the lighting levels according to your preferences. You can also add task lighting near the vanity area for practicality and ambience.
To create a spa-like feel, incorporate natural light wherever possible. Consider maximising your bathroom windows where possible to allow natural light to illuminate the space. This not only brightens up the room but also creates a sense of openness and tranquillity.
By combining natural lighting with bathroom mood lighting, you can create a well-balanced and inviting atmosphere in your bathroom.

Create and Run an Indulging Bath With DIY Spa-Treatments 

Start your D-I-Y spa treatment by drawing a warm bath. Here you can add some bath salts and a few drops of your favourite essential oil to the water. This will help you relax and unwind after a long day. The best bath products should leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and rejuvenated. 
So, opt for luxurious bath salts, essential oils, or bubble bath formulas that will nourish your skin and tantalise your senses. You can also add in some fresh herbs, flower petals or bath bombs for an extra luxurious touch.
Don't forget a soft bath pillow and plush towels to make your experience even more enjoyable.

Continue the Spa-Experience After the Bath

Finally, after your bath, don’t forget to treat your skin to a rejuvenating spa experience. Start by exfoliating with a body scrub to remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother, softer skin. Follow up with a hydrating face mask to nourish and pamper your complexion. Finish off with a rich moisturiser to seal in moisture and leave your skin feeling supple and glowing.
