Turn Your Old Bathroom Into An Inviting Luxury Spa Retreat

Tired of spending a lot of money on spa treatments at your community retreat center? It's time to think about turning your old bathroom at home into a private and inviting luxury spa retreat of your own. Here is how you can do just that:

Replace the Bathtub and Sink

To create more space in your bathroom and ensure that it doesn't feel too cramped while enjoying the spa elements of the room, you should have your bathtub and sink replaced. Installing a new stone tub in your bathroom will provide the space with a luxurious look and feel, just like you'd experience when visiting a professional spa facility. Stone bathtubs are sturdy, will last a lifetime, and do a great job at keeping the water hot when they're filled up. There are several types of stone bathtubs to choose from including:

  • Onyx – Easy to polish and maintain a glossy finish.

  • Marble – Comes in a variety of colors, making it easy to customize the look and feel of your bathroom.

  • Sandstone – Typically features various anomalies such as freckles or spots, creating a custom design that can't be found elsewhere.

You can also have your bathroom sink and counter replaced with a pedestal sink made from the same stone materials that your bathtub is made of. If you can't or don't want to install a stone sink, have a ceramic one that matches the color of your bathtub installed instead.

Invest in a Jet Bath Spa

You can easily turn your bathtub into a jet spa buy investing in a portable spa machine that can be attached to the side of the tub. Once plugged in, the jet bath spa will create movement and bubbles in the water to help relax and soothe you while spending time submerged in the bathtub. Look for a jet spa machine that's both mold and mildew resistant so you don't have to worry about thoroughly drying it off before putting it away each time you get out of the bath. The spa should also feature an adjustable nozzle so you can concentrate the water stream and bubbles wherever you'd like to in the bathtub.

Install an Accessory Rack

Getting rid of your towel racks and replacing them with a corner accessory rack will provide you with even more space in the bathroom while making access to any bathroom or spa accessory that you need convenient. Choose a brass or silver rack that will fit snugly in the corner of your bathroom, right behind your new stone bathtub. Fill the rack shelves with towels, candles, body lotion, face mask cream, massage oils, a hand massager, and any other items you'd like to use when pampering yourself in your new spa bathroom.

Enhance Ambiance and Filter the Air

An excellent way to enhance your bathroom spa's ambiance and ensure that you're breathing clean, healthy air at the same time is to hang houseplants sporadically throughout the room. Several types of plants will help filter your bathroom's air to keep it free of toxins such as formaldehyde. And your chosen plants are sure to provide you with the stress-free, relaxing environment you'd expect when spending time at a spa. Consider introducing one or more of the following types of plants into your new bathroom spa:

  • English Ivy

  • Boston Fern

  • Golden Pothos

  • Peace Lily

Hang pots of plants in the corners and near the walls in your bathroom. They can also be placed on your accessory shelf unit and on the windowsill.

After taking the steps outlined here, you'll have a luxurious spa getaway to enjoy anytime you want – right in the comfort of your own home.
