Design Trends & Tips Spa Retreat Bathrooms

 

Focus on adding relaxation and even a little romance to your home.  Create a soothing full body experience versus just getting clean functional.

 

Clear out the clutter

 

· Having a place for everything will lessen your anxiety and create an instant calming effect.

· Create different "zones" for the various bathroom functions. For example, designate one zone to makeup, another to bathing, etc.

· Rather than having towels tossed anywhere, roll them up & place them standing up in a basket by the bathtub.

· Clear, frosted glass containers will help disguise your necessities while adding a touch of elegance and sophistication or choose ones that match your finish/fixtures.

 

Use Calming Colors

 

· In bathrooms, especially where you apply your makeup, choose colors that complement your skin - flattering yellow-pink-blue undertones. Hold a paint chip next to your face to choose a color that best suits you.

· Enhance the harmony in the space, by painting with colors in similar tones.

· Calm and relaxing greens are emotionally balancing and also connect us to nature.

· Red is the color with the longest wavelength and shortest frequency, so it is very intense and stimulating rather than relaxing. Don't do it.

· If earthy isn't your thing, stick with soothing pastels in your spa bathroom.

 

Nurture with Nature

 

· It's no secret that nature often helps bring us to a contemplative place of peace. Bringing nature into your bathroom will help restore your sense of serenity.

· Incorporate a variety of textures in the space such as natural stone, exotic woods, tumbled marble and limestone of varying textures and finishes.

· If you're partial to hardwood floors, remember that they tend to expand and contract with temperature and humidity. A nice compromise is to go with laminate wood, which won't absorb nearly as much water.

· If you're in love with your spa's ceramic tile, keep in mind that you'll want to stick with a neutral color and pay attention to your wall colors. Dark walls will look better with lighter flooring, lighter walls with darker flooring.

 

Go Green

 

· In addition to brightening up any room, indoor plants contribute to making a space healthier with their oxygen-releasing function

· Bathrooms are perfect places for plants that are typically hard to keep alive because they require such humidity.   Go exotic.

· Bonsai trees and tropical plants to add a unique, exotic element to the space.

· Traditionalists should stick with white lilies or always elegant orchids.-

· Soften the Lighting

· Look for softer lighting and natural light. Candlelight flatters every skin tone.

· Halogen bulbs produce a wide color spectrum which allows the true colors of natural materials to glow.

· Install dimmers on lights to adjust the lighting based on your every whim and mood.

· If your bathroom has little to no natural light and connects to a bedroom, consider replacing the door with one made of frosted glass.

· Install colored LED lighting in whirlpools. Not only will this create a mood-enhancing effect & emit ambiance, it is also quite a romantic addition to the space.

 

Heated Haven

 

· Warm pockets of soothing steam, towels that feel like they just came out of the dryer, floors that keep your toes toasty

· There are several kinds of towel warmers- wall mount, free standing, warming drawer

· Install radiant heated floors; they are energy efficient and take the comfort factor to an entirely new level.

· Put steam units into the shower itself, keeping the heat from dissipating into oblivion while you bathe. And while you're at it, add a radiant heated seat bench in shower.

· To truly create a warm living space, consider putting a fireplace in your bathroom, This lends an inviting element to the space while it provides additional heat and pleasing visuals.

 

Finishing Touches

 

· Upholstered furniture in the bathroom creates a more inviting place to relax, blurring the lines between bathroom and living room.

· Add music.  Spas don't just appeal to your sight and touch; they also soothe you with sounds.

· Delight your sense of smell with sweet smelling products and aromatherapy.

· Get oversize shower heads. Rain showerheads are extremely popular.  They create a waterfall effect so you feel as though you are truly in an oasis.

· Take it a step further by installing multiple body sprays/showerheads for a full body experience - this also turns the bath into multipurpose space, a place to bathe the kids, wash the dog, etc.

· Treat your toes to plush texture by investing in a luxurious rug for your bathroom.

· Indulge with true luxury linens. Consider wrapping yourself in an oversized fluffy bath sheet.
