A spa-like bathroom can uplift your spirits, inspire you, and brighten your day. A drab and lacklustre bathroom, on the other hand, can make you feel dull and even miserable, feelings that have adverse effects on our mood. The general ambience of the room must be relaxing and soothing not only to your body but also to your soul.
If you think that your bathroom lacks style and needs an upgrade, consider decorating it to look like a spa. It will be a nice change and one that you can create by yourself. And the cost can be so affordable you’ll wonder why you the idea never crossed your mind in the first place.
Whether you have a small bathroom or a spacious one, a spa-themed bathroom is fairly simple to create. Not only that, what you need to make one are very affordable and easy to find items.
Things You Need to Turn Your Bathroom into a Spa
Have you ever visited a spa? If you have, you most likely enjoy that pampered and coddled treatment. Wouldn’t it be nice to give yourself a spa treatment at home a few nights a week? Well, to set up that luxury space, you will need the following:

- Wall murals or decals with images typically spa-themed. Decal inspirational quotes can also be introduced on a blank wall.
- Introduce a variety of greenery. You can either use faux plants or a variety of natural plants that can add a fresh scent.
- Hang a shower curtain with a minimalist pattern suitable for a spa-theme. This single element can totally transform the entire look and feel of the bathroom.
- Have a wooden stool placed by the shower or bathtub and use it as a surface to hold at least four neatly folded (or rolled-up) white towels. You can also place white rolled towels in a large basket. And don’t forget adding a white bathrobe and a pair of white terry-cloth slippers.
- Arrange a collection of matching jars to store bath salts, bath bombs, bath and body oils, cotton balls, swabs, and cleaning pads, homemade body scrubs, and essential oils. These will add a pleasant scent in the bathroom and also create an aromatherapy effect.
- On a wooden corner stand, place a decorative clear glass bowl with floating scented candles on it. Or alternatively, place a large scented candle on a wrought iron candle holder.
- Introduce seashells, smooth pebbles, pumice stones, and natural rocks. If you lack enough space to display these, install simple floating shelves or corner shelves on any free wall space and layout all your items decoratively.
- Use very neutral and natural colours, preferably white palettes and natural wood tones which are typical colour schemes used in spas. You can also complement the mix in warm woods with bathroom accessories.
- If you don’t have much bathroom space, consider using vertical storage systems.
- Use a slated bamboo wooden mat for a more zen look. Even though a simple white bath rug is a great alternative for a spa-themed bathroom, a wooden bathroom floor mat is more luxurious and, they are easier to keep clean.
- It is important to have some soothing and relaxing music with calming sounds of waterfalls while you soak in the bath or just languish in the room. You can listen to music via small Bluetooth speakers.
