Have you always dreamed of turning your bathroom into your own personal sanctuary, but don’t know where to start? Sure, your bathroom could just serve a single purpose and be doomed to a cold atmosphere, but don’t you want a space where you can escape the stresses of a long, hard day? Whether you’re building a new home or renovating your existing one, you deserve to make your bathroom into spa-like heaven. In this article, we give you 3 ways to turn your bathroom into your sanctuary, both simple and completely transformative, so you can get started on your sanctuary.

Bring nature inside

Bringing nature inside of your bathroom doesn’t have to be complicated. Most people don’t even think about bringing a living object such as a plant inside their bathrooms for decor, when in fact this is one of the easiest ways to make your bathroom seem more luxurious.

Caroma.com tells us more on how to bring nature inside your bathroom:
“Plants and flowers are the simplest and most obvious way to bring nature into the bathroom. Succulents and potted plants are easy to care for and make any room feel more vibrant and fresher. While plants are a great way to improve the aesthetics of the home and create a unique space, they are also great for improving the air quality, releasing oxygen, and reducing the amount of dust in the air.”

Shower upgrades

There is truly nothing better than taking a long, luxurious shower. And who doesn’t think about large, rain-style shower heads when they think of their perfect shower? Plus, adding body jets that affix to your shower wall is another way to ensure that you’re never going to want to get out of the shower - so you might want to start considering taking your showers at night and not before a big meeting.

Dan Clayton Homes explains more on why shower upgrades are so important in turning your bathroom into a sanctuary: 
“Showers are also becoming bigger and are making up a much larger part of the bathroom layout, with some homeowners opting for huge walk-in showers without a shower door. Think of your shower as a room in and of itself, rather than a stall. Incorporate tile on the walls and ceiling, and consider accessories like benches and nooks for storing all of your shower necessities.”

Mood lighting

There’s nothing worse than trying to relax in a bathroom with poor and/or fluorescent lighting, so it’s important to do what you can to rectify this situation. While you can only ensure an adequate amount of natural lighting when building your bathroom from scratch, there are plenty of changes you can make in your existing bathroom to give you your dream mood lighting.

Stoke Bathroom Fitting tells us more on how to adjust your bathroom’s lighting to give you the ultimate spa experience:
“You can have the best features in your bathroom, but what can make and break the vibe is your bathroom lighting. Make sure that you have a lot of natural light coming into the room by installing larger windows or a skylight. This will bring you closer to nature and also be a cost-effective way to save energy. For nighttime rituals, you can install a magnificent chandelier to add for a more upscale ambiance. Other than that, you can also have tiny fixtures of light that can accentuate and improve the bathroom’s mood.”
