Bathrooms are not just a room in the home to take a shower, have a shave and brush the teeth. Bathrooms can be a place to chill out for a while, relax after a hard day and just take your mind off life for a spell. In fact, when set it up in such a way to offer both visual appeal and ambience, the bathroom truly can be transformed into a relaxing oasis.
This can either be achieved through renovating, or simply making some adjustments and additions. Let’s take a look at some ideas.
Lighting Is Everything
If your bathroom is truly going to be a sanctuary or oasis, then two forms of lighting will be essential (apart from natural daylight). As bathrooms are used for practical purposes such as bathing, shaving and applying make up, some bright light to see by is essential. However, you don’t want everything to be about harsh light. You need choice.
Softer, ambient and more relaxing lighting really goes a long way in creating a calm and serene atmosphere. Even a low light lamp or some candles will create just the right mood.
Adding fresh flowers regularly is a great and natural way to permeate the bathroom with a beautiful scent. Another is to burn scented candles and oils. Having a bathroom that smells inviting and luxurious really helps with that day spa / oasis feel.
Try playing some mood music while relaxing in the warm tub with the lights down low. Relaxation music or meditation music is perfect and is guaranteed to soothe the soul while the water soothes the skin.
Humans are visual creatures so aesthetics are vital when creating your bathroom oasis. If you really want to transform this personal space, then maybe now is a great time to renovate. And nothing spells luxury and opulence more than using natural stone such as gorgeous marble and granite for your tiles, bath surrounds, shower cubicle or for your vanity tops.
If natural stone is out of the budget, then how about the more budget-friendly, but still stunning, range of engineered stones available today?
Imagine stepping into your new bathroom oasis, bare feet padding on the sparkling marble stone floor, the lights down low and mood music playing softly in the background. Immediately the cares of the day will flee with the aroma of scented candles.
