Everyone needs a place to get away and relax for a while, but the majority of people either don’t have the time or the money to spend a few hours at one of those high priced spas.

11 Spa Inspired Bathroom Ideas for Creating a Relaxing Atmosphere
#1. Start By Removing any Clutter
One of the reasons why spas are so relaxing and comfortable is because they are wide open and uncluttered spaces.
So, the first thing you will want to do when creating that spa like atmosphere is to declutter your bathroom.
Make sure that all of your bathroom countertops and your floor is clear of jars and bottles.
#2. Add the Right Small Touches
Once the clutter is removed, you can increase that spa atmosphere by adding a few small touches that will make a huge difference in how relaxing your bathroom and bath time will feel.
You may want a single plant to sit on top of the cabinet or on the floor to bring in a bit of nature for a more calming feel.
Also, add some soft relaxing music and you will be transported to that heavenly state of true relaxation.
#3. Massaging Shower Head
For starters, exchange that ordinary shower head for a massaging shower head.
There is nothing that will relax those tense muscles more than a hot or warm massaging shower. You will be able to feel the tension in your shoulders and neck just melt away.
#4. Heated Towel Rack
One of the things I appreciate about spending time at a spa is stepping out of a relaxing tub or shower and wrapping myself in a nice heated towel.
#5. Add a Few More Special Touches
Adding a few more special touches will add to that relaxing feeling of a spa. Along with those fluffy towels, add a plush rug to comfort your feet as well as a nice silk or fluffy robe to put on once you step out of the shower.
#6. Aromatherapy – Create the Relaxing Scents of a Spa
Another way to create that spa like atmosphere in your own bathroom is by recreating those relaxing scents that are often found in spas.
#7. Recreate those Indulgent Tastes of a Spa
For a really relaxing spa like experience, you can recreate the indulgent tastes that are normally associated with a spa.
A glass of chilled wine and some fresh strawberries or melon slices or a box of creamy chocolates will truly make you feel pampered in the bath.
#8. Invest in Some Quality Bath and Body Products
Lastly, invest in some quality bath and body products to moisturize your skin and leave it feeling silky smooth.
Include products for your face and feet as well. By the time you have finished your bath and step out of the bathroom, you will be feeling pampered and relaxed and ready to face reality once more.

#9. Paint Wall with Relaxing Colors
If you have the budget and the space and want to go further in creating that home spa experience, then you can paint your walls in a relaxing color such as blue, green, or sand.
These colors have a calming effect and will instantly make you feel more relaxed the moment you step into the bathroom.
#10. Add a Small Easy Chair and Footstool
#11. Bath Tub Tray
An over the tub bath tray with loofahs and sponges can add to your overall spa experience as well.
Even if you can’t create that spa experience in your bathroom all at once, you can keep adding features one at a time until you have created that spa like atmosphere you are looking to achieve.
