Bathroom spas are trending in 2022, as homeowners search for ways to improve their mental and physical health without the hassle of leaving their home. Before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, getting out of the house and going away on spa retreats was a popular way of relieving stress. Since then, we have witnessed a huge increase in bathroom remodeling and renovation projects, as homeowners want to bring tranquility inside the home, creating a peaceful place to rest, recover and regenerate.
How To Transform Your Bathroom Into A Spa
Transforming your bathroom into a spa sanctuary is much easier than you think. Here are five simple ways to transform your bathroom into a relaxing oasis.
Choose A Therapeutic Bathtub Spa
It is important to select a high-quality spa bathtub, which is ergonomically designed for comfort and equipped with state-of-the-art wellness technology. If you're looking to create a true spa experience, the bathtub should include plenty of jets for a therapeutic underwater massage. The bathtub should also feature chromotherapy LED lighting, allowing you to create a calming spa ambiance in your home.
Bring nature inside the home, by adding some flowers and houseplants to your bathroom decor. Indoor plants can help you to create your own private oasis, providing a feeling of tranquility and escape. If you have a beautiful scenic view of the sea, mountains, forest or fields, you should place your bathtub in front of the window. Watching peaceful nature allows you to switch off and enhance your relaxation levels.
Use Natural Materials
Natural materials such as stone and wood can help to create a spa-like environment. Placing small stones or crystals around your bathtub rim, or on your bathroom vanity can help with meditation. Choosing a bathtub spa made of a solid surface stone composite material such as
with a beautiful stone-like appearance and smooth texture can also perfectly complement your spa experience. Combining stone and wood together can create a warm and calming spa space. You can add wooden accessories to your solid surface spa tub such as the Aquatica
