Imitating natural stone tiles
First of all – the colours. I’ve never seen a spa cabinet, which wasn’t decorated in natural colours. The reason is obvious – we can really relax only being surrounded by colours occurring in nature, those which are natural to our eyes. (It doesn’t mean that if we decide to use intense or dark colours we won’t be able to relax, however the stress relief degree will never be the same in such interiors.)
So, rule number one – instead of fancy and patterned tiles pick those imitating natural colours and structures. Their additional advantage is that such tiles are cheaper and won’t need to be replaced as soon as those that are trendy only seasonally. The same concerns the shelves and cabinets in our home spa. The best choice is wooden furniture (exotic wood, containing natural oils stands the bathroom conditions best).
Dream about having a spa-like bathroom but think it is much more expensive than average cost of bathroom renovation? You couldn’t be more wrong! You can have your own relaxing refuge while spending the average amount for bathroom renovation.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the elements, that should convince us the cost of bathroom renovation isn’t that big obstacle as we think.
Many inexpensive ways to source and install
Thirdly – the details – the most important elements of each spa, though requiring least work and outlays. Those are flowers and scents – either from incense sticks or air fresheners. And, certainly – the light. The subtle, dim light in the bathroom is also inevitable, if we want to soothe all our senses. There are many ways to fit our bathroom with inexpensive source of light. We can install the halogens or even cheaper LEDs modules in the suspended ceiling or bathtube casing, or, if want to avoid the costs of installing spotlights, we can always space out some nice candles or tea lights in the corners of the bathroom.
Installing a shower head over the bathtub
Secondly – there is no spa without a bathtub in which we can take a relaxing bath. However, the wall shower panel is inherent if we need a quick refresh. The lack of additional area for a shower can be easily solved by installing a shower head over the bathtub and a folding glass wall on the bathtub rim.
