Make the Floor Comfortable

While there is a lot of focus on the paint colour and décor in the bathroom when trying to create that spa feel, it’s also important to consider the flooring. With that in mind radiant floor heating Vancouver has become quite the trend. What this means is that when you step out of that warm bath or shower you won’t have that jolt back to reality when your feet hit the cold floor. Heated floors allow you to keep a constant and comfortable temperature at all times.

Find a Home for the Clutter

Another tip you can use is to find a home for all that clutter that tends to build up in the bathroom. One thing that spas have in common with them is that they are organized and tend to be sparse. There is absolutely no clutter to mess with the atmosphere. There are all kinds of smart and convenient bathroom storage options available that will blend with your décor and keep the space organized.

Appeal to the Sense of Smell

When you are looking for a way to relax and unwind, your sense of smell can play a huge factor. For your bathroom, you’ll want to pick up a variety of candles, aromatherapy oils, and incense that smell clean and fresh. Lighter scents tend to work best, as you don’t want to make the air too heavy smelling. Popular options include eucalyptus, tea tree, peppermint, lemon, lavender, and Ylang Ylang. Not only do these all smell great, they also have the ability to relax your body and mind.

Think About Lighting

Lighting is another factor to consider when designing a spa-like bathroom. The problem is that you’ve got to address two issues at once. There are times you will need bright task lighting, such as when you are applying makeup, but then you don’t want or need those bright lights when relaxing in the tub. A good solution is to install a dimmer switch that will let you adjust the light.

Perfect Warm Towels Every Time

Of course, an absolutely luxurious touch to add to the washroom is a heated towel rack. There is nothing better than wrapping yourself in a warm towel straight out of the shower or bathtub.

Plush Soft Linens

When shopping for bath towels, you’ll want to opt for the thick and luxurious plush fabrics. The focus should always be on your senses, so with the towels it’s all about how they feel.

Enjoy the Space

Now that you’ve added all kinds of luxurious touches all that is left to do is enjoy the space, and relax in your own little home spa.
