The bathroom should be a space where you can come to unwind after a long day. A dark and dingy bathroom can be off-putting whether it’s in a hotel or home. At InnerBath, we like your bathroom to look its best with simple, and easy solutions. So we have put together a list of our top 5 tips on how you can make your space a more relaxing oasis.
Dance in the Rain
The smell, sound and cozy feeling of staying in during the rain is a calming sensation for most people. A rainfall showerhead is a great way to bring this sense of peace into your bathroom. Unlike traditional showerheads, they provide a wider stream of water flow, fully covering your body during a warm shower. Due to the shape of their design and the direction of the waterfall, the water flow should stay extremely consistent throughout your shower so that you can totally clear your mind and just enjoy!
Only the Essentials
The smell of a room can dramatically affect your perceptions and emotions surrounding the space. Humans have used aromatherapy for thousands of years for medical and spiritual purposes. Aromatherapy works through the sense of smell and the skin absorption of plant components. Lavender, rose, ylang-ylang, bergamot and mandarin are all classically calming oils, great for making your bathroom more relaxing. You can implement elements of aromatherapy into your bathroom by adding candles with essential oils or an oil diffuser.
Keep it Clean
Clutter bombards our minds with excessive stimuli, causing unneeded stress. Entering a messy space can overwhelm anyone, and it is easy to let a bathroom get to this point with all of the different products that we store in the room and the little thought we tend to give the space. Things can easily get away from us and go too far! Creating a simple and routine storage system for all of your toiletries, towels and toilet paper is a way to keep on top of this usually forgettable chore. You can do this with stylish baskets, utilising small spaces like drawers and shower caddies. We recommend keeping a small amount of cleaning supplies in the bathroom so that when things start to become untidy, your cleaning products are within easy reach. If you’ve forgotten to clean your bath a little too many times and are noticing yellowing, cracks or general wear and tear, InnerBath can help you to resolve this, just give us a call!
Bring the Outside In
Natural materials are used in spas around the world due to the calming effect that they have on people. Add a wooden look into your bathroom in small ways like soap dispensers and toothbrush cups or on a larger scale like wooden look laminate flooring. Natural stone makes a beautiful countertop or opt for an eye-catching and unique stone sink basin. Natural materials are also a sustainable and timeless look, meaning it’s likely you will only have to update your space with them once!
Natural light has been shown to give a sense of comfort and productivity. While productivity isn’t necessarily essential to creating a relaxing space, comfort, on the other hand, helps greatly! While it’s common to block the natural light coming into a bathroom in order to maintain privacy, it is still possible to let it in through using a patterned glass window or blinds that obstruct clarity but allows for light. If your space doesn’t have natural lighting, try to keep the space light and bright through light colours and ample lighting features.
All these tips will help you to refresh your space and relax. At InnerBath, we can help with this process using our shower screen replacement and relining service for both baths and showers. The relining process can be completed in less than a day meaning you can get back to relaxing faster. If you have any bath or shower concerns, contact us today!
