5 affordable ways to upgrade your bathroom into a home spa

Posted by Adam Chard in Style guides | 8 years ago 3 min read

The trend of the spa-like bathroom is forever on the increase, as most people looking to renovate a bathroom want their everyday suite to replicate the experience of a country spa retreat.

After all, luxury is hard to resist and what could be more appealing than having spa-like amenities within your own home?

However, creating this doesn't need to cost the earth. So here are our top 5 affordable ways of creating a spa-like bathroom in your own home.

1. Shower experience

Transform your daily shower routine into a new and exciting experience by installing a large fixed shower head. This will create a rain-like downpour and leave you feeling invigorated and refreshed. These chic shower heads and they are available in sizes up to 400mm and in numerous styles.

2. Comforting towels

The perfect way to end a relaxing bath is to step out, into a warm, heated soft towel. This can be achieved by installing a stylish heated towel rail. With its numerous heated bars, it can hold all of the family’s towels, providing a spa-like amenity that can be enjoyed by all.

3. Seat yourself comfortably

They say luxury is shown in the smaller detail, so why not upgrade to a new toilet with a deluxe soft close toilet seat? The Tate close coupled toilet (pictured) is a bestseller, and it's easy to see why, with its combination of curves and angles very pleasing on the eye.

4. Look to nature

Many spas bring an element of nature indoors, as it encourages a calm atmosphere. By including a plant and some oak furniture bathroom, such as a basin unit or even a mirrored vanity unit, this will produce a natural feel to the room. This doesn’t need to incur a huge cost as our wooden bathroom furniture is available from as little as £45, and it’ll replicate the design details that spas include.

5. Basin detail

Simple details like replacing your existing tap with a shiny new chrome basin tap will instantly update any basin and create a sleek and modern look. By choosing a tap with a unique or unusual design detail, this will create a centrepiece and will provide a focal point for the room.
