How to Make Your Bathroom Into a Personal Spa

by Debbie Goldberg 05/08/2022

The right decor can make a big difference in even a small space. When designing for a small bathroom, every choice counts. Your bathroom is a place where you should feel relaxed and refreshed, no matter how small it is. With the right design choices, you can make every day a spa day at home. Here are some ideas to inspire you.

Add Luxury With Gold Accents

For an instant upgrade to your bathroom ambiance, try swapping out your fixtures with gold replacements. Gold details will add a bit of sparkle and transform the space into a luxurious getaway. While replacing fixtures requires some plumbing know-how, other accents like drawer and cabinet pulls are quick and simple to swap out for gilded upgrades.

Try a Bathtub Caddy

There’s nothing more luxurious than a relaxing bath with all the essentials within reach. There are a variety of styles to choose from with shower caddies from reclaimed wood to vintage metal to shining lucite. A bath caddy will give you a place to put your favorite book, drinking glass or extra bath bubbles in easy luxurious reach.

Bring in Plants for a Touch of Nature

Adding live plants to your bathroom will make it more tranquil and purify the air at the same time. Try lush, moisture-loving plants like trailing philodendrons, fluffy ferns or prayer plants. For lower-maintenance plantlife, add succulents to a sunny window or display air plants in decorative holders.

Choose the Right Candles

Scented candles are a classic addition to any spa atmosphere. Choose earthy, relaxing smells like lavender or eucalyptus or go for refreshing citrus and cucumber. If you prefer unscented candles, you can still achieve the same relaxing ambiance without the extra fragrance. For a safer option, opt for battery-powered faux candles. These will create warm, flickering light with no heat or fire danger.

Work With Chic Dispensers

Try putting your hand soap, lotion and other bath products into reusable matching dispensers. Clear glass is a classic choice or you can opt for chic ceramic. Upgrading to fancy dispensers instead of using the original containers will make your bathroom more streamlined and enhance the spa-like feel.

Consider a Towel Upgrade

Towels are one of the most important elements in the comfort of your bathroom. If you’re using old towels, consider replacing them with newer, fluffier options in calming colors or clean white. Matching towels and other bathroom linens will instantly transport you to a luxury hotel or weekend spa.

If your bathroom is not at the top of your interior design priority list, consider making time to give it a spa makeover. With these simple changes, you can have your own private spa at home whenever you need to get away.

I'm a full time Realtor with over 30 years of experience yet young enough to embrace today's ever-changing scope of marketing and technology. Having grown up in Connecticut and moved many times (too many to count!) I can empathize with today's buyers and sellers. Strictly maintaining ethical standards and being a fierce advocate on behalf of my clients are things I take very seriously. As a buyer, you can expect me to listen to and evaluate your real estate wants and needs. I can assist in explaining relevant forms, agreements, and closing procedures. I will guide you through the process of finding the right home, negotiating your offer, adhering to all contract dates and terms as well as final walk through and closing procedures. As a seller, I will listen to and evaluate your goals, needs, and timing in order to properly price your home to get the maximum exposure needed to attract the right buyers. In addition to negotiating on your behalf, I will make sure we communicate throughout the entire process as we navigate the contract terms, finance and inspection contingencies, as well as all closing procedures. I was born in Japan, grew up in Hamden and lived in New York, Ohio and Southern California before settling down in New Haven county to raise two kids, two dogs and a cat. I'm passionate about good food and love to bake. Some of my free time has been spent volunteering at Temple Beth Sholom, a synagogue where my family has been members for over 40 years. I also spend time at Tower One/Tower East, an assisted living center in New Haven where my mother-in-law now resides. 30 years of helping buyers and sellers achieve their goals has given me the peace of mind to know that what I do everyday matters. If you are thinking of buying or selling please keep me in mind.
