October 24, 2014 Posted by admin - No Comments

Relaxing, rejuvenating and oh so indulgent, there’s nothing more enjoyable than a luxuriously long day at the spa. Yet with more and more people leading busy lives, finding the time to escape can be a task in itself. Thankfully, with just a few steps you can turn your very own bathroom into a relaxing sanctuary where your worries will melt away. Here’s how!


The first step to serenity is to de-clutter. Bathrooms can be a mecca for everything from empty bottles and old toothbrushes to cleaning spray and past its prime makeup. A good clear out of anything you don’t need will instantly improve the space. Then, try to hide away as much as you can in order to create a seamless look. Purchasing aesthetically pleasing wicker baskets is a great way to store anything that doesn’t fit in your existing storage.

Once you’ve hidden all the unsightly clutter, it’s time to seek out a handful of statement items that will really give your bathroom that luxe day spa feel. A large mirror is an absolute must and can be chosen to complement your individual décor taste. Backlights will give your bathroom a sleek and modern look while gilding, carving and ornate detail will ooze old world elegance. Smaller touches are also important, with accessories such as stylized rocks, stones, flowers, vases and sculptures all helping to add a touch a class and refinement.
