5 affordable ways to create your dream bathroom

27 July 2016, 08:27Tamara Arden

When you're travelling away from home, one of the first things you can't wait to see upon your arrival at your hotel or B&B is the level of the luxury the bathroom will give you.

Well, no longer do you need to look forward to a holiday to experience your dream bathroom; rather recreate it in your own home with your own style and personality. 

Close the space in

The great appeal of the bathrooms you encounter during your travels, is that taking a break and just taking care of yourself seems more justified somehow. Think of a way to be able to cut yourself off from the rest of the world when you're in the bathroom at home too. Whether it’s a shower curtain, a large selection of plants or a translucent fabric. Get creative: it’s all about feeling protected in your solitude.

Think of the overall presentation 

The best way to treat yourself is to surround the bathroom with fragrances, soaps and bath salts that give you the scents and benefits to find relaxation. Allow yourself to mix and match and present them in pretty containers or a bathtub caddy that you can soak underneath in the snug water below it.

Add an element of surprise

If you're looking for soulfulness or a touch of vibrancy, add some art, flowers or even a interesting shaped mirror to the bathroom. Create a space that gets you excited to dwell in its details.

Contemplate all your sensations

Think about making the space neutral and approachable. Block out noise pollution with soft nature sounds and light candles if your overhead light is too bright. The goal is to reduce the level of stress, so think about your senses and how they would respond to triggers.

Surround the room with softness 

If you’re looking for a spa-like experience every time you step into the bathroom, choose soft things to surround you. When it comes to mats, slippers, towels and robes, immerse yourself in fluffy, soft textured items that make you feel warm and cosy.
