Our surroundings have a profound impact on our mood and our well-being. Often we overlook one of the rooms we spend substantial time in — the bathroom! The bathroom can actually become a place of self-care, rejuvenation, and relaxation with these tips below. Practice self-care by giving your bathroom a refresh.
A Clean Touch
The best tip for elevating feng shui in any room is cleaning, and the bathroom is no exception. It may sound simple, but taking the time to give your bathroom a spring cleaning will enhance the room’s ambiance. Take your cleaning regimen to the next level by giving grout a scrub if you have tile, replacing the shower curtain, and removing dust from walls and corners. Your newly scrubbed bathroom will seem brighter and more inviting.
Engage Your Senses
Taking the time to pay attention to your bathroom’s aesthetics will add to the level of relaxation you feel when you’re in there. If your bathroom has white walls, consider painting them a soothing color such as blue or green. Add art that you find pleasing so that you have something enjoyable to look at while you are at the sink or soaking in the tub. Engage your sense of smell by buying a candle in a favorite scent. If you do not wish to light candles, then consider adding fresh flowers to your bathroom. Even a few trimmed blooms can add a pleasant aroma and lift your mood.
The bathroom is a great place to pamper yourself and to indulge in a personal spa day. If you love to soak in the bath, buy some special bath bombs or relaxing bubble bath. If showers are more your style, then go for a nice shower gel that looks, smells and feels great. A great way to amp up the luxury in your bathroom is to buy new plush towels. Throwing out old towels for some new cozy ones is a great way to indulge in extra comfort after a shower or bath.
Upgrade and Renovate
Sometimes the best way to make your bathroom a place of relaxation is to do a bathroom remodel. This can be on a small or large scale project, according to your budget and needs. For inspiration, check out the bathroom remodeling photo gallery online at Remodel Works. Doing simple renovations like adding a new multi-setting shower head can reap huge increases in your enjoyment level. If your sink top is cluttered, buy a standalone organizer, a basket, or have a few drawers put in. If your light fixtures or flooring are dated, consider replacing them with something more modern. Whether it’s a very small change like adding a towel rack or a larger change like getting your bathtub refitted, the renovations will pay off in droves. Taking the time to renovate your space is a sure way to send the message to yourself that you’re valuable and that you deserve to feel the best you can in your home.
The bathroom is a place where you spend time each day. It’s important to make it a place where you enjoy being, and a place where you can fully relax. Making simple changes and adding touches like the ones above will make your bathroom your own special, tranquil retreat.
