Ask anyone - man or woman - what the most relaxing room in their home is and they will say the bathroom. It is where people go for peace and quiet, a place where people go to relax and recover and refresh themselves. It is an beautiful escape from life’s noise. It doesn’t matter if it is a Bubble Bath you’re into or long relaxing showers; it is all about you.
That is why it is so important that you make the most out of this space, make it the most relaxing it can possibly be, make it that haven where you go to relax for hours, if not days. And here is how to do it without breaking the bank.
It’s All About The Lighting
Getting your relax on is all about getting the ambiance right, and what better way is there to do that with the lighting. Having a single source of bright light just does not ooze comfort, after all, there is nothing comforting about being sat in a dentist’s chair. As such, make sure you have as many options as possible. It could be that you have spotlights that work on a dimmer switch, or multiple roman candles dotted around the room, on the shelves, by the window, around the tub. The more the merrier.
Are You Not Entertained
The world is stressful, so it is important you don’t carry this stress into the room of relaxation. That is where having some form of entertainment. Just think about it, all you need is a hammer, the best tv wall mount money can buy and a can-do attitude, and there you have it, the chance to bath while watching your favorite Netflix show. Of course, you could want to escape a life of screens. The bathroom could be your screen-free zone; no phones, no tablets, no laptops, no TVs, nothing. In that case, music is what you need to feed your soul. On the one hand, you could get built in speakers to make the experience that much more mesmerizing, however, it could be that you just invest in a Minirig, which is hands down the best portable speaker out there. Either way, you can’t have a Buble Bath without a bit of Michael Buble.
It’s The Little Things
The phrase is as old as time itself, but the little things are what make life special, and your bathing experience is no different. This means looking at the details, things like having a nice bouquet of fresh flowers in the room, or indoor plants hanging from the ceilings, or dotting diffusers about the place. Getting the right smell adds a huge amount to the overall atmosphere. Another little detail that should not be ignored is your comfort, and that is where a bath pillow comes in. A huge result for a small expenditure. Maybe even having a bit of art on the walls, whatever takes your fancy, whatever peaks your interest or calms your mind, body, and soul. That’s another great addition, and with online stores like Etsy available, it is no longer an expensive option.
Lot's of love
