9 Ways to Create a Luxurious Bathroom

October 4, 2016

Create your own spa-like oasis without spending a fortune. This article will show you 9 ways to create a luxurious bathroom.

1. Think fluffy

If you’re going to splurge anywhere in your bathroom, update your towels and bath rug first. A soft, fluffy, neutral-colored towel goes a long way if you’re trying to turn your basic bathroom into a spa-like oasis.

2. Dim the lights

Cursed with über-bright overhead lights? Install a dimming switch if you can, turning those harsh lights into sexy mood lighting. If you’re in a rental and can’t install dimmers, add in a selection of alternate lighting: Small lamps, sconces, and candles galore.

3. Engage all of your senses

Speaking of candles: Place ones with a relaxing scent you love all around the room, ready to be lit when you’re itching for a bubble bath. If candles aren’t your thing, consider potpourri or scented diffusers.

4. Swap out your showerhead

There’s just something so luxurious about a rainfall showerhead: They’re softer and less grating, making each shower feel like a special occasion, not an obligation.

5. Add art

It’s a shame how many people forget to add personality to their bathrooms, especially considering how many hours of our life are spent there. Adding a large piece of artwork can be the perfect way to tie the whole room together but we also love the look of a well-curated bathroom gallery wall.

6. More seating

If you’ve got the room, adding extra seating like a small stool or ottoman will make your bathroom look elegant and upscale. Where else would you sit while you moisturize, your legs propped up on the tub like a scene from Pretty Woman? On the toilet? No.

7. Arrange artfully

Consider your counter: Are your beauty and hygiene supplies just strewn about randomly? If so, adding a few small trays can mean the difference between a mess and an artful arrangement. And don’t write off apothecary jars just because they’re a cliche they’re a beautiful way to display the small but necessary items that often come in gaudy packaging (cotton balls, q-tips).

8. Add greenery

A bathroom should not be a plant-free zone. Not only do they help clear the air, but they’re an easy way to add color, personality, and drama to a stale bathroom. And thanks to the higher level of humidity, the plants are much easier to keep alive (even for a green thumb!). Not sure which plants are best? Try aloe vera, bamboo, and philodendrons.

9. Get a bathtub tray

What’s more luxe than a bathtub tray? It’s got space for your book, your loofah, your glass of wine everything you need for the relaxing home-spa day of your dreams.
