Are you in need of a spa getaway to recharge yourself? Transforming your bathroom into a spa might be the key. A spa bathroom is a sleek and clutter free space that exudes a calming atmosphere and acts as your own personal getaway in your own home. Lighting, fixtures and shower design all help create a serene environment.
We love the walk-in shower concept not only because it is beautiful, but it is functional too. Instead of feeling cramped in a walled-in shower with a small glass door, the walk-in shower forms large open walkways that keep the area ventilated and open. Implementing a changing area with a bench and wall hooks for convenience is a great option for the shower entry. This would also be a good place to add overhead heat lamps.
One way to add ambiance to a space is through lighting. Incorporating dimmers for your lights allows you to adjust the light intensity. Adding a chandelier or decorative ceiling light dresses up the space.
A unique tile design is key in creating a spa-like atmosphere. Using warm earth tones in beige, green, and creamy whites combined with a lot of different textures lends itself to an organic feel. Some creative designs we have implemented in the past are vertical 6 by 24’s brick laid with a colorful deco strip at the center. A herringbone pattern was a huge hit in a bathroom remodel we did a few months back. If you err on the side of traditional, a standard brick lay with a 4” deco band is both classic and beautiful. Some people like to have their tile walls on display. This can be achieved by adding glass surrounds. Body sprayers, rain shower heads and a hand held shower fixtures all help create that spa feel. Keeping your bathroom free of clutter and adding scented candles and music will add to the ambiance.
