17 TIPS FOR CREATING A LUXURY SPA AT HOME
It’s the end of a long day. You walk into the house, set your keys down, and inhale, breathing in the comforts of home and exhaling the stresses of modern life. Many of us look to make our houses an escape from the hectic outside world. A destination of comfort, relaxation and peace. It’s no wonder that recreating an atmosphere of ultimate relaxation is a growing trend. If a home spa sounds too good to be true, you’re in luck. We’ve taken inspiration from some of the world’s greatest spas to assemble this list of practical, actionable ideas for turning your bathroom into a mini, luxury spa (and you won’t have to spend $100 an hour to enjoy it).
Delight the senses 1
Bring in aloe, lavender, or bamboo plants to purify the air and add a touch of nature to your bathroom. There are countless options perfect for any space. Be sure to choose plants that do well in humid environments with little or no direct sunlight.
Let stress float away with a countertop waterfall. The soothing sounds of cascading water help your spa achieve an air of serenity.
Add a diffuser to infuse your bathroom with the aroma of lavender, eucalyptus, lilac and other soothing scents. Though candles and incense are ever-popular, diffusers provide the same benefits with less upkeep (and they don’t require an open flame).

Try natural cleaning products with DIY guides like this one for a more soothing atmosphere. The odor left by harsh chemical cleaners can detract from a relaxing environment.
Bluetooth speakers are perfect for setting the tone of a relaxing retreat. Playing some of your favorite mood-music or natural sounds while you soak is an ideal way to end the day.
Thick, soft towels are an easy upgrade. And if you want to take it a step further, consider adding a towel warmer. Imagine stepping out of a steaming bath or shower and wrapping yourself in a warm, luxurious bath towel. It doesn’t get much more relaxing than that!
