Our bathrooms should not be overlooked - warm baths or showers are therapeutic so your bathroom should be your daily getaway where you can enjoy some alone time. Seeing bathrooms are fairly small and simple, these little touches can make all of the difference.
You can easily set the mood through lighting and highly recommend dimmable lights to give you this option. Soft lighting in the evening is more calm and relaxing. If you’re on a budget, then why not opt for good quality candles - it provides more benefits over artificial lighting after all. Candlelight relieves stress and anxiety while providing a cozy intimate atmosphere.
It’s hard to relax when there’s clutter around so it’s worth making extra storage space to tuck things away whether it be drawers or shelves. Another option is to pick up a ladder shelf or storage trolley to store rolled up towels, candles, bath salts, and other pampering products. Seeing these on display will remind you to use your bathroom as an oasis.
Speaking of reminders, another great way to remember it’s time to relax is through aromatherapy. Essential oil diffusers or reed diffusers both offer strong smelling fragrances to any room in your home while also adding a bit of decor. Make sure to pick a scent that not only calms you, but also uplifts you.
Just like lighting, softer colours add more tranquility to your space. Your bathroom may not need a full renovation, but you can definitely bring in more neutral colours through accents & accessories such as rugs, towels, artwork, etc. The softer the colours, the more light is brought into your bathroom.
By simply changing the fixtures in your bathroom (sink and tub faucet, shower head, etc), you’ll be amazed at the difference it makes. Whether you’re after vintage or modern chic, updating your fixtures will give you the look and feel you want to achieve.
