Transform your bathroom into a zen-like oasis with products that cater to all your senses.
Our Top Zen Tips & Products
When you think of a spa, words like tranquil, serene, pampering, and relaxing come to mind. But what about when you think about your bathroom? If you would only use a few — or none — of those words to describe your bathroom’s current state, let me be the first to tell you that it doesn’t have to be this way.
No matter the size, any bathroom can be made to feel like a spa — it all comes down to setting the right mood and finding the right products to get it there. Below, we’ve outlined our top tips and items to breathe new life into your space and turn even the most basic bathroom trip into a spa-like experience.
When it comes to making your bathroom feel more welcoming, just keep your senses in mind. Think about it: every spa greets you with a fresh aroma, tranquil sounds, and ultra-soothing textures. When you keep in mind smell, sound, touch, and sight, success is guaranteed.
Start your bathroom-to-spa transformation by adding some mood lighting to your space. The key to achieving a spa-like atmosphere is to go for dim, non-overhead fixtures that create a mellow vibe. These alabaster tube sconces cast a cozy warm glow and would be perfect over the bathtub.
For a less permanent lighting solution, display some flameless candles in various sizes around the bathtub and sink to give that flickering mood lighting without the fire hazard. And a himalayan salt lamp casts a beautiful pink glow and has the added bonus of numerous health benefits.
Creating a memorable spa experience is all about tempting all the senses, and smell is an important one. Whether you prefer a revitalizing, citrusy aroma or a calming lavender and tea tree scent, be sure to include a diffuser in your shopping list.
For presentation points, a bouquet of fresh flowers is a treat for the eyes as well as your nose. Arrange them on a small woven tray with your favorite scented candle or a reed diffuser and some rolled-up plush white hand towels.
Another sense you can’t neglect is your sense of touch. Keep your skin feeling ultra-pampered from head to toe with memory foam bath mats, hotel-quality Egyptian cotton towels, and a fluffy robe and slippers to slide into. One of the easiest ways to elevate your bathroom to a spa-like oasis is by buying a set of ultra-plush towels. Trust us. Roll your towels up and keep them in a handy towel warmer to keep up the spa-like atmosphere and truly pamper yourself.
Pleasant sights and sounds
Any room can get an instant facelift with the addition of a plant or two (or three). Add a pop of color and a touch of life to your space with a plant in a pretty bamboo planter (for smaller spaces, a wall planter is a great option). Check out this list of plants that will thrive in any bathroom! And for your listening pleasure, grab a waterproof speaker that can go anywhere you’re being pampered, or opt for a noise machine programmed with relaxing, natural sounds.
Once you’ve transformed your bathroom into a spa environment, the final step is adding the accessories. You can pamper yourself with at-home spa treatments using a paraffin wax kit, facial steamer, and a memory foam bathtub pillow. And you can’t forget a bathtub tray for nights when you want to soak while catching up on your favorite shows with a glass of wine!
Bring a spa-like atmosphere to your bathroom
There you have it — everything you need to bring a spa-like atmosphere to your bathroom. Believe me, by the time you’re done adding all these items to your space, it’ll feel so relaxing you won’t want to leave. In fact, it might just become your favorite room in the house. Happy pampering!
