Natural Components

Spa feels more authentic when it includes natural elements like natural stone, marble, and different types of wooden compartments. The vintage look will take you to a place far from the urban pressures.

Dim Lights

Low-lit lights or sconce lights are usually used in bathroom spas and you can install them in your bathroom to bring in the vibe. Usually, too many lights lead to unrelaxed nerves, that’s why dim lights are used to avoid the light pollution effects. 

Big Steam Shower

Steam showers are great to relieve stress and feel more refreshing. Specifically, if the shower head is oversized, it offers strong water pressure close to your body that helps in detoxing therapeutically just like a spa.

Floor Heating

Why Consider Heated Floors in Your Bathroom RemodelSince most of us use tiles for our bathroom floors, it feels so chilly, specifically in cold winters. At that moment stepping onto the floor will feel like stepping on sharp pins. Even bathmats won’t help much in those harsh colds.

You can install radiant floor heating for your bathroom, it will be both comfortable and luxurious. The bathroom will feel more like a spa this way, and nothing beats hot spa days in winter. Wineteer has an article outlining the benefits of heated flooring when completing a bathroom remodel:

One of the most important parts of turning your bathroom into a spa is having a comfortable soaking tub. Here are some free-standing tubs to consider:

Make sure the tub is big enough to relax comfortably. Also, place the tub at a prominent point in your bathroom as it will give a spa-like vibe whenever you enter the space.

Tub Window

Plush Towels

Invest in good towels! Plush towels have a luxurious comfy feeling. You may even consider a towel warmer for an extra spa look and feel!

Paint Cabinets

One of the ways to make the bathroom more spa-like is to paint the cabinets to a moody sophisticated color. Do you enjoy crisp white, mindful grays, light greens, or tans? There are ways to incorporate colors into cabinetry in a tasteful way. 

Open Shelves

Adding open shelving in your bathroom remodel can be a good addition to turning the bathroom into a spa. The open shelving will encourage you to keep the clean and crisp feel. 

Hidden Electric Outlets

All the cords of your electric bathroom tools will make the space chaotic and unsafe. You can install the outlets inside the vanity drawer and cabinet to keep the tools and their cords inside. This way the cabinet will be decluttered and the washroom will feel more like a shooting spa.

Earthy Tone

The spa makes you more connected with nature, and that’s why it’s best to incorporate earthy colors when remodeling the bathroom.

Elegant Curtains
