Spa bathroom ideas for a soothing escape and any-time pampering right in your home

The difference between a regular bathroom and a spa bathroom is you will never want to leave the latter. When it comes to home improvement and design, one immediately thinks of the living room or bedroom and rarely about the bathroom. Since the bathroom is mainly considered for its utility, its design remains functional. But you can turn this area into your own personal oasis by recreating a spa room design in your bathroom. 

We know this has got you wondering about how to make your apartment bathroom look like a spa. Well, fret not, because we have the best ideas for you!

Get The Spa Bathroom Essentials Right

You don’t have to necessarily do over your entire bathroom to turn it into an at-home spa. You can make a few changes to your existing bathroom to make it feel like your very own personal spa. Begin by making some small investments in spa essentials like luxe hand and bath towels. Do away with the many different bottles and containers and get trendy dispensers instead. Transfer your soaps, shampoos, lotions and conditioners into designer dispensers. This will give your bathroom a uniform and personalised look instead of appearing cluttered with different branded packaging.

Accessories And Storage Hacks For Your Spa Bathroom

If you’re confused about how to make a small bathroom look like a spa, we suggest switching to smart storage solutions. Eliminate all the clutter to turn your bathroom into a space that feels calm and relaxing. Install sleek cabinets and drawers under the basin to free up the vanity area. Minimalist glass wall shelves help keep your bathroom essentials well-organised while looking stylish. Cane baskets are a great way to store fresh towels in your spa bathroom. Once you’ve put away the clutter, accessorise the space with natural decor elements like house plants, river stones, pebbles and scented candles.

Get A Luxurious Spa In A Small Bathroom With Gold-Finish Fixtures

Up the luxury quotient of your small bathroom by adding a touch of gold to your existing bathroom interiors. Install bathroom faucets, cabinet handles, and door handles in a gold finish instead of going for something regular. It looks particularly great when set against white. In this green-and-white-themed bathroom, the golden fixtures and handles subtly enhance the sophistication. The white dispensers blend in well with the rest of the bathroom and let the gold do all the talking. The designer mirror with a geometric frame in golden completes the look.

Invest In A Classy Rain Shower Head For Your Spa Bathroom

For the ultimate spa experience at home, you will want to do away with your regular shower head and get a rain shower head instead. This is one of the best small spa bathroom ideas that can completely transform the feel of your bathroom space. A rain shower does a fabulous job of relaxing tense muscles, and you won’t feel the need to book an appointment at your favourite spa again. By enclosing the shower area with a glass door or partition, you can also turn it into a mini steam room. Check out this elegant bathroom with a glass door partition for the shower area. It also features vertical open shelving to make room for scented candles that can totally elevate your shower experience.

Remodelling The Entire Bathroom To Turn It Into A Spa Bathroom

If you’re planning to remodel your entire bathroom with a spa room design, you have the opportunity to pick colours and patterns that lend a spa-like feeling to your bathroom. Colours have the most significant impact on the ambience of your bathroom. So when you want to make your bathroom look like a spa, start with softer hues like white, cream, and beige to infuse a sense of lightness into the space. Pick a colour and use it throughout the bathroom — be it the tiles, the paint, the cabinets, or the wallpaper. This bathroom in a soothing cream colour with white bath fixtures and concealed LED strip lights gives a glowing effect. We love the minimal shelving on the walls to create a clean and pristine spa bathroom look.
