Design Tips For A Relaxing Space in Your Home
A place to relax, reflect and find tranquility is an important space to have in any home. As a result, Spa themed bathrooms are becoming an increasingly popular design option in Australia for both renovations and new build properties. They provide not only a unique space to unwind but also provide the property with the ‘wow’ factor that won’t be forgotten any time soon.
Here are some handy design tips that will help get your bathroom ‘Zen’ ready.
1. Use Clean Colours and Earthy Tones
Spas tend to achieve their ‘Zen’ through sticking with calming, earthy tones. Create continuity with tile. Continuous light-coloured tiles from floor to ceiling makes the room look bigger. White and beige are always great base colours for your spa bathrooms pallet. Offer contrast with organic colours such as pale green and blues as they create a soothing mood to the room. Accent this with slightly bolder pieces within the same colour bands to provide not only visual interest but also prevent the room from feeling sterile.
2. De-brand Your Space
Sophisticated Spa Bathrooms are achieved through never forgetting about the finer details. Try transferring cotton balls and q-tips into ornate glass containers, in a variety of heights and sizes. Display bath salts and scrubs in glass jars with wooden spoons, and select beautiful baskets in neutral tones to put folded (as seen in photo) towels and other ‘hide-away’ items into. Eliminate as much visual clutter as possible. If it has to be out on display, make sure that it is chic, commercial packaging free and complementing the overall design of the spa bathroom.
3. Reflect Nature With Materials
Natural textures like wood and stone breathe life into a spa bathroom. A pebbled tile floor feels amazing underfoot. Wood slats give this minimalist room a relaxing feel.
4. Achieve Ultimate Zen Through Scent
Aroma plays a large role in the mood of any spa bathroom, don’t forget to add relaxing aromas to your space. Lavender, chamomile, vanilla, coconut and cinnamon are always spa bathroom friendly choices. Place these scents in reed diffusers on your spa bathroom’s countertop. A range of candles and infusers, to complete your spa bathroom feel are available from your local Tile Wizard stores.
Complete your spa bathroom with a candlelit bath complete with rose petals for a warm, romantic and relaxing bit of pampering. Enjoy!
