Incorporate Candles

When you're setting up your spa, consider incorporating candle displays. Many spas use candles because they are known to act as a relaxation tool for guests. Unlike a spa however, if you have a smaller bathroom you may be hesitant to include open flame candles in your bathroom.  Well, the good news is that whether you are using open flame or LED candles, you will still gain the relaxation benefit from just watching the flicker of light from the candle.

Use Bath Salts

In addition to candles, having an assortment of bath salts on display either opened or in containers will make your bathroom have more of a spa like atmosphere. If you're creative, you could make your own bath salt bottles to mimic the ones seen at a spa.

Organize Your Toiletries

A simple step for transforming your bathroom into a spa is to organize your toiletries in containers that are often used at spas. Closed glass jars to store your make-up remover pads and cotton balls  while using an open glass jar for your makeup brushes helps to emulate a spa like atmosphere.

Dim Your lights

Relaxation is best achieved under dim lighting. This is why many spas use dim lighting to entice their guests.  If your bathroom is not equipped with dim lighting, you don't need to rush to change your lights to dimmers. Instead you can use other light sources such as lamps or candles to achieve your desired dimmed lighting.

Add Plants

According to Lindsay from Bath Solutions, "House plants are beneficial for health in a number of ways. They calm and reduce stress, anxiety, depression and blood pressure. Plants also improve air quality by purifying and increasing humidity in the air." So by adding a plant to your bathroom, you are promoting a calmer environment.

Hang Robes

Arguably one of the best aspects about going to a spa is the soft plushy robe. Luckily, these aren't exclusive to spas and you can find them almost anywhere. Once you pick out robes that you like, be sure to keep them consistently hung up and easily accessible from your tub.
