Is there anything more relaxing than sinking into a warm bath after a long stressful day at work? A zen space can help ease your stress and anxiety. It evokes a feeling of calm and tranquillity.
Even the smallest and darkest bathroom begins to feel like a spa by doing a few thoughtful tweaks. The key is knowing what updates are the most effective in transforming your bathroom into a spa-like atmosphere.
10 Ways To Turn Your Bathroom Into A Home Spa
1. Declutter & Organise
A messy bathroom is certainly not the most relaxing one. Before you even start bringing in any new items, do a deep clean and get rid of any clutter around the sink. Get a few storage baskets for all things you don't use daily. And for the ones you do, consider adding a shelf as a beautiful storage display. Use a shower caddy to keep your supplies tidy. Here are a few storage solutions to get you started:

2. Introduce Texture
Replace your old mat with a new soft bath rug. Your feet deserve to land on a fluffy cloud after a relaxing bath. Get one or two oversized towels and pop them into a woven basket. It will instantly make your bathroom feel cosier and spa-like.

Plants make any space stress free with minimal efforts. A large potted tree would make a massive impact in a spacious bathroom, whilst in a smaller space - hanging plants or putting them on a stool/shelf is the way to go. Read this post to find out which plants thrive in a windowless bathroom.

5. Hang A Minimal Shower Curtain
Colourful curtains are sometimes too much distraction for your eyes and can make the room feel busy, whilst curtains with one or two colours bring harmonious and classy vibes to a bathroom. Opt for textured linen-like curtains. Read here about how colours affect our mood.

8. Upgrade A Light Pendant
