After a hard day’s work, nothing will rejuvenate you better than a relaxing bath. Of course, nothing can beat a spa experience, but it is not exactly practical to visit a spa every time your body cries ‘exhausted.’ Instead, you can relax in the privacy of your bathroom. Splurge on a few essentials, and you will be able to unwind, destress, and revitalize your senses any time you want.
To help you make the right purchases, I have come up with a list of a few bathroom additions that can give you a refreshing and relaxing bathing experience, so let’s check them out.
The human mind tends to relax in natural surroundings automatically. Natural, dim, and earthy colours like green, brown, and grey have a very relaxing effect that will lend a soothing atmosphere to the bathroom. You should choose tiles that belong to this colour palette to add a gentle touch to your bathroom, but keep in mind that the choice of colour depends on the size of the bathroom. If the bathroom is small in size, softer, lighter shades can be a better option.
Dim, soft lights give a soothing touch to the bathroom. Nowadays, lights come with dimmer switches that can give you a spa-like feeling and help you relax. The dimmers have controls that enable you to adjust the lighting to suit your mood and the time of the day.
Bathrooms can get very cold, especially during winter. One of the decisions you need to make involves choosing the best bathroom heater, which is an absolute must for a relaxing bath. A right heating appliance makes all the difference when stepping out of the warm bath. There is nothing worse than a cold bathroom, so you need to shop around and carefully inspect the options available to make the right choice.
A Comfortable Bathtub
Second only to your bed, your bathtub is the best place to relax in the comfort of your home. A long, hot bubble bath can simulate the relaxing experience of a professional spa without the expenses. The size of the bathroom does not matter as companies are now coming up with bathtubs that are scaled down to fit into your bathroom regardless of its size. Why should you be deprived of the pleasure of a relaxing bath just because a regular size bathtub does not fit into your small bathroom?
Massage Shower Head
In case you don’t want to go for a bathtub, installing a massage shower head would be equally beneficial and relaxing. Not only is it less space-consuming, but you can also use it every day, even if you’re in a hurry. If your bathroom has enough space, you can go in for both; the bathtub as well as the massaging showerhead.
A nice, relaxing, and warm bath needs to end with you wrapping yourself up in a soft, comfortable, and warm towel. To cater to this need, a variety of towel warmers are available in the market. A towel warming drawer can also be installed in your vanity. If you are unwilling to spend the extra amount but still want the comfort and warmth of a towel warmer, you can opt for towel warming bars; these are a cheaper option.
Essential Oil Diffuser
The fragrances that you surround yourself with can enhance the bathing experience in many ways. An essential oil diffuser will add to the relaxing experience. You can choose your fragrances according to your mood or the time of the day. For a late-night, before bed bath, soft fragrances like lavender and jasmine do you wonders. To wake you up in the morning and prepare you for the long day ahead, a strong peppermint will give you the boost you need to start your day.
Fragrant candles can add a romantic, soothing atmosphere to your bathroom. When complemented with dim lights, the environment it creates is guaranteed to take away all the fatigue that you are experiencing. And, candles are ideal for romantic situations, too.
Soft, soothing music adds to the relaxing ambience that is already created with all the add ons that you have installed. Some people prefer to mount TVs on their bathroom walls, but while this may keep you entertained, it does not relax your mind. Soft, recreational music will help you achieve the right level of tranquillity that you are looking for. A personal playlist can be created and played on your waterproof Bluetooth speaker. Consider adding soft meditation music to your playlist.
To improve your quality of life and better manage daily stress, you need a private corner or relaxing nook where you can let go of all the worries and spend some ‘me time.’ Your bathroom can be turned into such a space with the above additions. You don’t need to go to a spa or a therapy centre. Instead, just make a few simple changes to your bathroom, and you can easily enjoy a wonderful bathing experience, so go ahead and splurge on these add ons. You won’t regret it now the cold weather is coming!
