Investing in a new bathroom is an investment in your wellbeing. You’ve probably selected your favourite faucet collection by now, but how do you go about transforming a bathroom into a home spa?
Your colour and material palette will set the tone of your spa bathroom – dark woods, pale stones or shades of white help to create a tranquil foundation upon which to create your relaxation space.
Include a lighting scheme with a number of different light sources. Clear and flattering at the basin, soft and sensual for nighttime bathing.
Under-floor heating and a heated towel rail ensure comfort when you step out of your shower or the bath – whatever the weather.
Choose a double vanity unit or an extra-wide basin so there’s no fighting over the bathroom mirror in the morning.
A freestanding bathtub in the centre of the room brings focus to the rituals of bathing. For convenience, introduce a small side table to store cleansing essentials.
Dedicate as much space as you can to your shower area. Integrate a seating area so you can take a break during your shower or rinse off body scrubs in comfort.
Create a relaxation zone that features a day bed or a bench – a place to spend a few minutes relaxing after your home spa experience.
