7 Stylish Tips on How to Make a Bathroom Look Like a Spa

Creating a relaxing spa-like experience at home does not have to be a costly master bath remodel. There are several affordable ways of how to make a bathroom look like a spa using white. If your bathroom is already mostly white, you are in a good starting place. If not, it is easy to transform the space with white elements to give your bathroom a spa-like feel.

Tip #1: Avoid All White

You don’t want to create a “sterile” environment of all white like you would find in a hospital. Instead, you want to choose key elements in the bathroom that will be white, while others will be of a different accent color.

For example, the tub, shower, sink, cabinets, and counters could all be white. You could also have white bathtub enclosures and window treatments. For the walls, ceiling, and flooring, this is where you want to choose a different accent color.

Monochromatic shades of blue, gray, and natural woods are all great choices for accent colors to further enhance a spa-like experience in your home. Black also works well as an accent color around mirrors and doors and for cabinet and drawer handles.

Tip #2: Add Some Live Plants

Most spas use live plants to help create a natural setting that is very relaxing. Get some bamboo, aloe vera, or cactus plants and place these in your bathroom. All of these plants are easy to maintain and are well-suited to more humid environments.

Tip #3: Upgrade the Showerhead

Showerheads that have a rainforest setting or ones with colored LED lights are both great choices for a spa-like experience. You can also install multiple showerheads that have different features.

Tip #4: Install a Window

If your bathroom doesn’t have a window and is on an exterior wall, you could add one to bring in more natural light from the outdoors. If you have an interior bathroom, you could find a bathroom-friendly monitor and use it to display different nature images like the rainforest.

Tip #5: Get Comfy Robes and Slippers

Hang up some comfy, plush ropes and get matching slippers like you enjoy using when you go to the spa. Choose colors based on which ones best complement your bathroom color scheme and décor.

Tip #6: Upgrade to a Soaking Tub

A soaking tub is deeper and longer than a regular bathtub. You could also look at a tub that has Jacuzzi jets. Both of these features can help further enhance a spa-like experience in the bathroom.

Tip #7: Add Scented Candles

Place some scented candles in different locations around the bathroom. Burn these when soaking in the tub after a long day at work, to unwind and relax. An alternative to candles is to use essential oils and place these in an electric oil burner to release your favorite scent into the air.
