Let’s face it. Home spas are a luxury through and through. You have the pleasure of using amenities, in the comfort of your own home, whenever you like. From steam baths and sauna’s to head-to-toe shower jets and your own massage room, this type of luxury is something to invest in – especially if you are trying to increase the value of your home.
Here we share a few design elements that can give your bathroom that ultimate spa feel.
It is always a good idea to invest in appropriate lighting for your bathroom or wetroom. You can use a combination of different light sources to set the mood and adjust the lighting for the time of day, or for how you are using the space.
Bright, natural light that mimics the outdoors is perfect for morning and day. Bright light is best for getting dressed and doing makeup. In the evenings soft light can help you relax. Make sure your lighting is easily adjustable to change the ambience you’re after.
Wood, mosaics, large glass panes, opulent taps and water elements are always a must in your home spa. Wood finishes in bathrooms are very trendy at the moment and one can never go wrong with a classic mosaic look. Combining these aesthetics with metal and glass is a sure way of getting the ultimate spa look at home.
Simple things like towel warmers and temperature control is a must in your home spa. More advanced are things like chromatherapy. This is a type of colour therapy, where LEDs in your bath or shower cycle through the colour shades and bathe you in tranquil or invigorating colour to balance your energy. Vanity TV Mirrors are also very popular. This slim vanity mirror has a TV inside, designed flush with the glass. It disappears when you are not watching so there is still ample space for your vanities.
Add low-light, humidity loving plants to your bathroom for some serious spa vibes. These types of plants not only look great but their presence allows for more relaxation and more oxygen. They are a must for your well-being. Vertical, moss growing walls look beautiful in your garden and thrive perfectly in the environment. Other plants or flower to consider are Orchids, Begonia, Peace Lilies, Palms and the very low maintenance air plants.
