In our last post we discussed the many benefits of investing in a glass kitchen, but did you know that the versatility of glass also makes it the perfect material to consider throughout your home and it might even surprise you that this is also particularly true for your bathroom.
So, if you want to create your very own sanctuary where you can soak in the tub, unwind and perhaps even enjoy a cheeky glass of wine, here are a couple of ways you can do exactly that.
A calming ambience can be created with a fresh lick of paint. Fresh, neutral tones such as beige, ivory, taupe and even white are proven to evoke feelings of warmth, calm, peace and light and thus naturally help to contribute to that spa-like environment you are seeking to create.
Bathroom Glass Panels
Glass panels can be used to let in light, as enclosures for that rainfall shower or perhaps a backdrop and focal point either behind your deep spa tub or mirror. Some reasons why you may decide to have a glass panel installed include:
• Low maintenance
• Option to have digitally printed designs
• Frameless shower doors open up space
• Great for showcasing beautiful tile designs
• Make smaller bathrooms appear more spacious
Diffusers are a fantastic way to create a calming ambience whilst soaking in the tub as they release beautiful fragrances and are a much safer option in comparison to candles, not to mention far more cost-effective as they also last longer. You can find a wide range of diffusers from retailers such as Jo Malone, Hygge by Mint Velvet, Rituals or The White Company who do a beautiful exotic scent called Seychelles which releases notes of bergamot, orange, and amber which are combined with coconut, vanilla and almond.
Low lighting such as dimmer switches or candles can help to leave you feeling relaxed or, alternatively, why not have some spotlights put in your ceiling to focus on key areas such as your sink.
Luxuriously Soft Towels and Rugs
No spa-like experience would be complete without some soft Egyptian cotton towels to wrap up in post-shower and of course, an absorbent mat means you can dry your feet and avoid that cold marble floor in the winter months.
Music to Your Ears
Whether you want to do some mediation in your bathroom or perhaps listen to a relaxing playlist, make sure you completely switch off by investing in a waterproof speaker through which you can play your phone’s music, as this guarantees that you won’t be disturbed and that your iPhone doesn’t accidentally join you in the tub!
Not only will this make it easier in the long run for you to find your toiletries, medicines or makeup, but by having built in storage and de-cluttering your bathroom, you can create an authentic spa experience and unwind without being distracted by bathroom toys or accidentally knocking over the shampoo bottle.
These are just a few ways you can turn your bathroom into a space where you can unwind from the day’s stresses, but of course you may also wish to consider:
• A whirlpool bath with massage jets
• Indoor plants
• Wooden bath caddy – perfect for holding that glass of wine or book
• Bath oils and a body brush
