Are you sick of having to queue every morning for your own bathroom? This is often the case for families who only have one bathroom in their whole house. Once the kids get in there, you never know when it will be free again! And once they hit their teenage years, they will only get worse!
Why put up with such a busy bathroom when you could treat yourself to a chic en suite? Lots of people are now adding an extra bathroom to their master bedroom as it provides a lot of extra privacy away from the kids. You can even turn it into a dreamy spa retreat. The only thing you won’t be able to copy from your local spa is the massages!
So, interested in going from a busy family bathroom to your own dreamy spa retreat? Here is how you can do just that!
Think About A Wet Room
Not got enough space to add on an entire bathroom to your bedroom? No problem; you could just see about getting a small wet room instead. These can be as small as a shower cubicle. Lots of spas now have these where guests can get washed off before and after they hit the saunas. So having your very own wet room will feel like you are trying to recreate some spa pampering in your own home. Plumbing companies can install a wet room for you, and it shouldn’t be a huge job for them. Just remind them to add some shelves to the room for you, so that you have space for relaxing scented candles and joss sticks.
Use Natural Materials
Spas are all about being eco-friendly so use lots of natural and sustainable materials such as wood, granite, and even quirky materials such as bamboo. If you bring in some of these to use in your bathroom decor, it will instantly have the ambiance of a 5-star spa retreat. You can keep it simple by just adding some wood carvings for decoration, or you might want to take it up a notch and incorporate some wooden panelings. Adding a granite sink and surfaces will also give your en suite a chic, spa feel.
Use Dimmer Lights
When you are in a spa, there is one thing you will instantly notice – just how relaxing and ambient it all feels. And the main way spas create this atmosphere is by using dim lighting. You can recreate this in your home’s en suite by adding dimmer lights. These come with the benefit of being able to be turned to full brightness or right down low. You’ll be able to light your bathroom however you wish, depending on your mood! It’s also a good idea to buy a few lamps as well as these can help you light your bathroom without it being too bright.
So, why wait in line for a busy bathroom when you can take a shower in your very own spa-themed en suite? The choice is yours!
