What’s better than a day at the spa? A relaxing atmosphere, tranquil aromas, and a totally blissful experience are something you can absolutely experience in the comfort of your own home. Whether you are planning a major renovation or making a few minor updates, your master bath can be a place to unwind and escape the day.
When thinking about creating the perfect retreat inside your home, it’s all about the senses.
First, think about what you can see. Colors and textures can heavily influence your at-home spa experience. Focus on a color palette that promotes relaxation and tranquility. Blues are a great place to start, as these cool hues support relaxation, no matter what room of the house they are in. House Beautiful has curated a list of 16 colors sure to boost the calming vibes in your master bath.
Another key player in focusing on your sense of sight is eliminating clutter. Although creating an at-home spa seems like a great opportunity to load up on bath products, choose carefully, and remember, less is more! Keeping your master bath free from clutter is essential to promoting a sense of calm. You can create a master bath retreat by choosing a bathroom vanity that offers both storage and functionality. The design team at the RTA Store is here to help you choose the best options for your master bath renovation!
Continue to play on your senses by tapping into the sense of sound. Close your eyes and think about the sounds you heard during your last spa trip? The sounds that have you feeling totally Zen, can easily be implemented into your space. Try using a Bluetooth speaker in your bathroom, and turn on your favorite tranquil playlist. Finding sounds that create calm, and set you at ease can easily set the tone for a blissful at-home spa session. There are now many playlists out there dedicated to creating that relaxing mood right from your phone!
The scent is equally important to help you unwind. However, before you decide to purchase all things aromatherapy, remember to first find what works best for you! Overdoing it with heavy and overly fragrant scents can have the opposite effect on your relaxation and cause headaches. It is best to stick to one or two soothing scents that you love, and that pair well together. Two great duos to consider are lavender and vanilla, as well as eucalyptus and mint.
You can even upgrade your scent experience by incorporating fresh eucalyptus into your shower. Not only does it look beautiful placed in your shower, according to healthline.com, it also has many benefits as well. Eucalyptus is known for stress reduction, reducing inflammation, and decongestive properties.
