Taking a weekend vacation to the spa could be an amazing way to forget about any kind of stress you had, but unfortunately we can’t all afford the cost to go to the spa every weekend. Well, if you think this dream can only be reached by celebrity’s then let me show you some affordable tips to get your bathroom the look and feel of your dreamed spa that make an end to your stress and gets you in a new relaxed mood to start a new day.
Think about your bathroom organization
As you already know, nice smelling soaps and shampoo are a good way to treat your body and feel like in spa. But don’t just put them in randomly in your bathroom corner. Use your imagination and think about a creative presentation. Use your nice containers for products you like handling. If your bathroom has a tub, then you most get a woody bathtub caddy to feel a new different soak and relax experiment and get everything near to your hands while showering, i’m sure you don’t want to quit that hot water to grab something you forgot.
No stress ! I’m in the bathroom please!
Once you get in your bathroom, eliminate any thing that might distrub you out first. There could be some loud noises and sounds from cars down the street or from some constructions nearby. To cover up those unwanted sounds you can bring in your music station and turn on some relaxing songs and feel your self on the clouds.
Turn down the lights and turn up your feelings
Need more feeling to forget about everything and believe yourself in the spa ? No problem ! Bring in candles, or setup a light control dimmer switch to reduce the lamp light, this will create a warm mood lighting exactly like if you were there in the spa. If for some reasons you can’t use the dimmers we are talking about here, you can still get the warm light effect by using candles galore or wall sconces.
However, if you decide to use candles in your bathroom here is how to do it, Get your favorite scented candles and place them around the corners so they are ready when you are there for a hot bubble bath. If you prefer an alternative to candles please consider scented reed diffusers.
Add art or something surprising
