Luxury bathrooms aren’t exclusively for the rich and famous anymore. Everyone needs a bit of pampering in their lives. For the sake of our health and mental well-being, we all need to take the time to slow down, relax, and breathe in some peace and calm. Your home should be a hub of productivity. But it should also be a haven of refreshment, and the bathroom is a great place to incorporate a few changes to that end.
There are plenty of ways to update your bathroom that won’t break the bank. You will find some great ideas here to help you add a little luxury to your current bathroom situation, and get you rested and refreshed for all that hustling.
Update your tub with luxurious additions
Our first idea is to update your current tub. Did you know you can buy a jet spa attachment for your regular, plain ol’ bathtub? You really can, and it’s amazing. Get the comfort of a spa without the cost.
A lounge set for your tub is also a must if you are planning on soaking on the regular. Let’s be real, resting your spine against a rock-hard bathtub isn’t very relaxing. Get yourself a mat and pillow set to make your bath a truly comfortable experience.
Add mood lighting to help you unwind
Mood lighting is an obvious must for creating a relaxing atmosphere in any space, and the bathroom is no different. There are a few different ways to accomplish some seriously moody lighting in your bathroom.
Consider adding a dimmer switch to your existing lights. While there is more to the process than just switching wires, it is still a feasible DIY project. If you are not feeling confident in your ability to safely make the switch, you can also get a handyman to take care of this quick project for you.
Also, we love the idea of filling your bathroom with a sea of soft, glowing candlelight. But have you ever considered how hard it is to light all those candles without burning yourself or blowing one out? And then you still have to get through an entire bath without stressing about something catching on fire. That’s why we prefer flameless candles. They look beautiful, run on batteries, and take nothing more than a quick click to flood your space with their warming light.
Get a towel warmer
Is there anything better than stepping out of the shower and wrapping up in a hot, fluffy towel? Oh, you’ve never experienced this? Well, it’s time you did! Get yourself a towel warmer for some post-shower pampering: you won’t regret it.
Swap your regular shower head for a rain shower head
If you’re looking for a more relaxing shower experience, you couldn’t go any more classic than installing a rain shower head. It’s basically like standing in a warm rainfall. There are lots of different styles available, and some have higher pressure for a light massage. You can even purchase rain shower heads that have LED lights if you’re feeling extra.
Round it all out with a mini fridge and coffee station
Ok, this final idea might just be the best one yet. If you’re a morning shower person, wouldn’t it be amazing to walk straight into your bathroom, grab a cup of joe, and hop in the shower? And after a long day of getting things done, what could be better than a mini fridge with a chilled pinot noir and a hot bubble bath?
Could you just go to the kitchen to get your coffee or wine? Yes. But that wouldn’t be quite as fun, now would it? Sometimes, it’s the little things that make the biggest difference in how we enjoy our experiences. And the luxury of a mini fridge or a coffee station right there in your bathroom will definitely give you the pampering you’ve been craving. Keep it stocked with your favorite creamers, or a chilled wine glass, so you’ll be completely prepared whenever the mood strikes.
Relax in your updated bathroom and be a more refreshed you
Even if you only use a couple of these ideas, your bath time experience will be far more restful and relaxing. Remember how important it is to take time away from the stresses of life to recharge your mind, body, and soul. Try to keep this time free from work-related activities. Avoid replying to work emails and let your mind wander.
We believe that rest and relaxation are crucial to productivity and a better you. Your home should be a space that brings you the peace, warmth, and rest your mind needs to function at its best. And for many of us, good food also brings comfort, especially during the colder months. Maybe you find preparing warm, nourishing foods to be a relaxing pastime.
