Ditch everything that makes your bathroom less than ordinary and create a luxurious bathing sanctuary with these five super easy fixes. You can thank us later 😉
The family bathroom can be a bit chaotic at times. It’s a room used by every member of the household which doesn’t make it the most relaxing space in the house (to say the least).
But sometimes you want to just unwind, run a hot bath and not see the compiled mess of toothbrushes and face washers strewn all over the vanity.
With just a few simple additions and switches, you can transform your bathroom from a high-traffic mess to a tranquil sanctuary. Take these five tips and enjoy your very own peaceful zen space <3
1. Get yourself a bath caddy
If you’re lucky enough to have a bathtub, you’ve got a great, big canvas there waiting to be lavishly decorated.
Sit back in the bubbles, put your magazine down and take a sip from your glass of wine. Need we say more?
2. Indulge in quality bath towels
When it comes to replacing bath towels, a bit of a splurge has our tick of approval. It’s time to stop drying up with harsh, withered towels that feel less than pleasant.
It’s time to part ways with your tattered towels and spoil yourself with soft, high-quality, plush goodness.
Give up the fight with fabric softener and invest in good bath towels with a high GSM (that’s grams per square metre!). Trust us, a heavier, plusher towel will make all the difference.
3. Fill the space with a sweet aroma (and mood lighting!)
If you’re a candle lover (like us) you’ll know that the right scent can make even the busiest room a space of relaxation. The bathroom is no exception.
The little flicker of light and an indulgent scent may be all you need to unwind with a good book in the tub. Or accompany with laid-back music while enjoying a well-deserved hot shower.
Don’t ever leave a lit candle unattended, though! For a sweet aroma to fill your bathroom every day, opt for a diffuser. They’re long lasting and make a stunning addition to your bathroom décor.
4. Add some greenery
We all know that greenery has the power to lift spirits (especially after a long day!). Aside from purifying the air, plants add a beautiful, natural presence to the bathroom.
Refresh the look of your bathroom with the soothing, calm aura of a potted plant or a hanging planter if you’re squeezed for space. If you don’t have much of a green thumb, here’s how to find the right plant for you. Or you can opt for an artificial version and no one will ever know 😉
5. Create a (stylish) space for your daily routine
How we conduct our daily routine can really alter how we feel for the rest of the day. Having a clean and organised space in itself is very relaxing. Organising doesn’t have to be bland, though.
Create a space you love to wake up to and get ready in!
