The bathroom is one of those rooms in your home that should be a sanctuary. It is one of those spaces that you should be able to lock yourself away in and relax for as long as you need to in order to rid your body and mind of the stresses of the day.
Unfortunately, for many people, that is simply not the case and the bathroom is less than the relaxing spade it should be. It’s time to change that, and here are a few simple ways you can do just that and create the most relaxing bathroom possible:
Clear out the clutter
When a space is cluttered, your mind tends to be busier. So, you need to get rid of the clutter in your bathroom, or at least hide all of those lotions and potions away in a cabinet or basket or somewhere else where they are out of sight, so you can clear your mind and relax without worrying about the mess.
Ensure the shower is optimal
There’s nothing like a hot, powerful shower to unknot those tight muscles and make you feel more relaxed than you have all day, so before you do anything else, deal with any water heater repairs and have someone check the pressure so that you can get hot, powerful hets of water whenever you want them. This, more than anything else, will help you to really enjoy your bathroom space.
Enjoy a little aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is really relaxing, and the bathroom is the perfect place to practice it. Whether you opt for a high-quality scented candle in a soothing lavender scent or an aromatherapy diffuser that lets you fill the air with the soothing scent of sweet orange, if you want your bathroom to be relaxing, you need to focus on scent.
Play with plant power
Nature is naturally soothing, and it just so happens that the humid conditions of the average bathroom are perfect for keeping plants. So, if you are serious about making the space more relaxing, invest in a plant or two and take good care of them. Orchids do particularly well in the bathroom, and they are always good to look at, but choose a plant that really lifts your spirits.
Install a spa bath
If you have the money to splurge, then installing a spa bath complete with water jets and jacuzzi function, will make your bathroom feel more like a luxurious spa. And ensure that you can lie back, close your eyes and enjoy the feeling of the hot water melting your aches and pains away.
Upgrade your towels
Once you have finished your bath or shower, if you want the relaxation to continue, rather than coming to an abrupt end, you will want to wrap yourself in the softest, fluffiest e, warmest towels possible. So, upgrade to a higher quality towel and install a heated towel rack for the ultimate in luxury.
Now, all that remains is to run yourself a hot bath and relax in your soothing bathroom space.
